Standing on the shoulders of giants

If by standing on the shoulders of giants, we can see further than the ones before
Then why not try to become the next giant, and help humanity even more?
It is not just for your own sake, it will benefit the rest
when you go out and be awesome and build something that will last

I want to set an example, leave my mark, become a real life Tony Stark
and when you read about history, there will be a chapter all about me
Call me vain, or insane. I don’t care; life’s just a game
just to see how far I can get, changing the world before I’m dead

Life is full of pain and sorrow, no matter what kind of life you choose
So why not take a shot at greatness, there is nothing much to lose
You’re not doing anyone a favor, hiding from fate by staying small
live a life you can be proud of, raise your head up and stand tall

I want to set an example, leave my mark, become a real life Tony Stark
and when you read about history, there will be a chapter all about me
Call me vain, or insane. I don’t care; life’s just a game
just to see how far I can get, changing the world before I’m dead

On Choices

A choice is not made until acted upon. It’s one thing to decide to climb a mountain but another thing to actually prepare for it and do it. The real choices you make are your actions, whether you are aware of it or not. If you decide to chase a certain goal but end up never taking the appropriate steps to achieve it or give up along the way you have chosen through your actions not to pursue the goal.

Not choosing is a choice in itself. When you don’t consciously make a choice someone or something else will. Of course you are free to decide to let others or the circumstances make the choices for you and see where it gets you. However, when you do so, it doesn’t excuse you from the responsibility over your live. If you choose to let other people and circumstances make the choices for you, you have to accept the consequences of this. You can’t blame others or the circumstances if things don’t end up like you wanted. It was your choice not to take control in the first place. In order to really be free to shape our destiny you first need to commit to making your own choices. This means accepting full responsibility for your choices, both those you made and failed to make.

You are responsible for everything you do and what happens to you simply because you have to live with the consequences. Even when something out of your control happens to you and gets in the way of your plans you are the one responsible for dealing with it. This because it is your life and the unexpected obstacle towards reaching your goals affects you. You can ask for help but you still need to take the initiative.
