Connect The Dots

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. 

So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. 

You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. 

Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path.”

Steve Jobs

Fourteen years ago someone read one of my stories.

They didn’t like it. They told me to give up and do something else.

And this made me angry.

Yes, I was but a kid back then, but I truly believed in my dream.

I didn’t think of myself as being talented, but I wanted to make it.

I believed in my dream…

You were designed for accomplishment, engineered for success, and endowed with the seeds of greatness.”

Zig Ziglar

I followed my heart. I wrote and I wrote and I wrote. I had no one to support me, no one to read my words.

  1. This Blog reminds me of the three Miners who mined their Claim for years without any succes. One Day they unanimously decided to sell their Claim and become Farmers. The new owners dug into the Rocks three feet and struck one of the Richest Veins of Gold. Never, never give up on your Dreams even if it takes you nowhere. It’s better to finish last than not entering the Race.

  2. I was thinking the same since this morning. Even when I was a little girl, I always used to say, “I want to inspire people, and I want to be remembered.” Now, whenever I get a fan mail or get positive comments about my work, it makes me feel satisfied that I was able to make an impact. And I am glad I chose to be a blogger.

  3. Persistence definitely pays off and I think your writing is amazing, Cristian. Apparently others think so as well. So I say the many of lives you have touched with your words outweigh that one person who told you to give up. Keep doing what you’re doing, my friend. 🙂

  4. So true. It’s so important just to try and do things. Even if you fail, you see what’s your thing and what isn’t, and with time you find out who you are and what you want. I’ve tried many things that got nowhere, but they led me to what I’m really interested in. The mistakes are part of the learning experience. You will recognise your vocation because you are drawn to it, despite temporary setbacks.
