Lessons of life

Hundreds of years ago, men have sought to undermine such things that we have achieved nowadays. You name it, Al-Khawarizmi, Ibn Battuta, Ahmed ibn Yusuf and much more have shared their knowledges with the world towards their secrets of success. These are just but some of such men that you think more people would listen to what they had to say. Never leave that till tomorrow, which you can do today. Im not sure why some people put these things off, but if i had to guess, I'd have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if your'e wrong? What if your'e making a mistake you cant undo? The early bird catches the worm. He who hesitates is lost. We cant pretend we hadnt been told. Weve heard them all, warning about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize todays present. We fear we don't have enough time to do anything. We have to learn our own lessons. We need to sweep todays possibility under tomorrows rug until theres none left, until we finally find what we are really searching for. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest of failures, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying.
