What’s the point in those useless tasks,
The challenging things that don’t need doing,
That will set us apart but not earn us millions,
That turn a few heads but will soon be forgotten?
Is there a point when we can’t leave our mark?
Or should we just curl up, save ourselves time
When there’s a chance we’ll just fail,
As we try to outdo a bar we can’t see.
I’ve been watching some of the Salomon TV on Youtube over the past few days and it’s quite addictive because the people they follow are just so interesting. I think that we all need positive people in our lives and these are the people who shine a little bit of light into my life.
I don’t have any real interest in being rich or famous or successful, so the outlook of these people is really inspiring to me. Their idea of success is coming to know themselves better and the people in the world around them a little better.
Watching these videos you get to see people pushing themselves over a finish line that they have determined. There is no trophy or gold medal at the end. There isn’t even a cheering squad because they’ve made this challenge up on their own. All they care about is digging deep and understanding what makes themselves tick.
There is something quite spiritual in it and I guess it’s why I enjoy pushing myself. I’m never going to win a race, but I can find a point to the things that other people consider pointless.
