Each of us have a dream that we want to make real. But sometimes we’re afraid to invest in it. We are afraid that we won’t get the outcome we want. What if I put in hours for years and I don’t become what I want to become? It would be a total waste, right?
Here’s the thing. You can control how much you give, not how much you get. And you won’t know how much you can get, unless you start giving. You can only buy stuff if you give money to buy it. Similarly, you can only get something when you’re willing to give something. It could be time, energy, sweat, whatever.
You might be familiar with this law in chemistry: “Energy can neither be created not destroyed. It can only be converted from one form to another”. This is applicable to our situation here. The reality we want to create cannot be created out of thin air. You need to invest energy, to make your dream true. The more you give, the more you’ll get in return. It’s simple conversion of energy from dreams and ambition, to reality and success.
And the most interesting part is that you not only get back what you invest, you also get cool byproducts in the chemical equation of life! Think about this. You want to be a great athlete. You invest into the practice that will turn you into a super-duper athlete. But it’s not just the skill of the athlete that you end up getting as a product. You also get amazing byproducts like fame, respect, first class airline ticket, a big house, and so on.
Life’s not narrow. It not only gives you what you ask of it, it also gives you a lot of complimentary gifts. But it will only give, when you give. You’ll only get something, when you give something. And you know what is the best part? It’s all about you. There’s no training fees or commission that life or nature is taking from you. Whatever you invest is yours, whatever you get is yours. The life is just catalyst to make your dream come true.
