Happy New Year viewers!
I would like to talk about The Fish Theory today with you.
Before I start, I should tell you I am not talking about fish tho. Not literally fish that from the water, but the metaphor behind it.
Okay, here I start with a question. 'What do you think you are?'
Some of you would answer(in your mind), about your job role, your name, your nationality or even, for some...what you have been wishing to be.
The reason of this post is to call up your inner self. "What do you think you are?" I asked again.
I was just looking through some old pictures in my hard-drive and I have found this picture. A picture I took from Dartmoor, Plymouth, UK. The Sun was setting and it was quiet. I took my camera out and stood up on a random place. Did some settings on my camera, this shot happened.
The simple message I wanted to reflect on this picture is 'The place where you are standing matters'. If I didn't happen to be in that right space in time this moment would not be captured and stored in my hard-drive.
Okay, I think I am a Fish! metaphorically of course... my talent is swimming and possibly a good treat on the dinner table. Wait no, before that I am supposed to be living happily in the water right?
There you go, "living happily". Have your ever felt what you do should be what your talent is? I know there are things you need to trade off and not everyone has a job tailored to them. But when there is an opportunity, my friend, please take it!
Because nothing is better for a fish to be "living happily" in the water. That fish might have had experience living on land and doing a monkey's job (metaphorically again) but even that fish tried its best, a fish will never match a talented monkey, say climbing up a tree.
'Try Your Best To Be Who You Are' is what I wanted to tell you from my Fish Theory.
Last but not least, one more tips for you viewers. The ultimate enemy is yourself and doubt is the poison that kills a lot of fish climbing up a tree.
Thanks for Reading and Happy New Year!
