Silver Bullets

Note to my future self…

You don’t need silver bullets because you’re just a cannon that will keep shooting until you bring down whatever wall you want to break through.

This is just a quick reminder to myself that there are no silver bullets. There might be quick fixes to simple problems but for anything worth having there are no magical solutions. If you’re reading this you already know this yet you keep thinking that there is one magical thing, moment or decision that will change everything. In reality this isn’t the case and that’s ok.

I am convinced that it’s painful to achieve anything that’s truly significant. Not because all of the hard work that you have to put in but because of all the times that you will fail on your way to success. This is actually ok because if you believe enough in yourself and what you’re doing then you it’s just a matter of time before you get to where you want to go. There are no ifs just when. You don’t need silver bullets because you’re just a cannon that will keep shooting until you bring down whatever wall you want to break through.

Along the same lines, there’s this great saying that says:

“If You Want Success, Figure Out The Price, Then Pay it”

That’s it. No need for silver bullet. Just figure out the price and pay it. Don’t be cheap. If you truly care about something then you will pay the price. Otherwise, you won’t. Whatever you decide it’s ok.

Ok enough with the pep-talk to myself.

Now back to work…
