Hi there! Almost a year building and sharing #brandyourway with all of you, writing about the coolest stuff I found on Internet related with innovation and entrepreneurship. It all started as I said one year ago, on may 2012 and well actually I’d created brandyourway on blogger, but for many reasons I finally ended up here, being one more on the wordpress community. That huge community of enthusiastic people that have a lot to say!
When #brandyourway came to me at the very first it was just a blog, a site to talk and share my feelings but after some months of activity I saw that it was something more, not just a wordpress. And now, after a whole year I know that #brandyourway was pretending to be a way of act, think and live, which it makes me remember a Mark Twain’s quote that says:
Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Samuel Langhorne Clemens or better known by his pen name Mark Twain was the father of The Adventures of Hucleberry Fiin, the Great American Novel and also a great journalist as well as humorist. So well, Mark Twain’s life and mainly the quote before take me to the main subject of this post: make it happen. What I want to really mean with this?
You can do whatever you’ve purposed, you are the master of your fate and the captain of your soul (quoting William E. Henley on his poem Invictus), amazing things are awaiting for you and nobody mustn’t prevent you of achieving your dreams. Everyone of us are unique and I truly believe that if we were not so influenced about what others say or think about us we could do, create and discover plenty of new amazing things.
I am currently 19 and I have my whole life ahead of me. I could be playing PS3, watching TV or just killing the time doing absolutely nothing. But I am right now writing on this blog, I’m about to lunch my first business in a few months and the next year I’m going on Erasmus to Belgium for six months, six incredibly months. I am not rich, I am not lucky but I love my life and I love to work. And if I’ve learnt something during this year on #brandyourway is that if you work for what you love, things will happen.
Just make it happen.
