Thought of the Night

"Failure is never an option."

I saw this phrase on the shirt by Busta Rhymes in his new music video, We Made It, featuring Linkin Park which hit me profoundly. If you truly and sincerely believe in what you stand for, what you want to do and where you are going, then go fully confidently in that direction. Never give up, never quit. Even though others degrade and dismiss your aspirations, your belief in it will be your guide. Though times look bleak, hold tightly to your goals. Its not an option to quit otherwise all you are is a hypocrite, a liar to yourself. I am a trailblazer cutting a path to the unknown. Where this path leads, I do not necessarily know, but within me burns a yearning indicating that my chosen path will lead me to the promised land.

Yes, sometimes we do need to inspire ourselves with the right words to achieve greater heights. I also saw your previous post whereby you said that you have been blogging for 4 years now and has achieved your 100th post. Congrats! Now, if only I too have that kind of patience to maintain a blog for 4 years. I can be pretty fickle-minded and I tend to hop from one project to another. :( By the way, would you like to participate in my Love Q meme at my blog? Just interested to read what you have to say on love and relationships, if those topics interest you.

I'm not a big fan of rap, but I love Linkin Park. This song has a lot to say about the human spirit even when faced with the constrictions of a society who still judges a book by it's cover.
