- What's Forecast for 2014? 5 Predictions for the New Year One Must Still Have Chaos In Oneself To Give Birth To A Dancing Star!
The great philosopher Nietzsche once said, "One must still have chaos in oneself to give birth to a dancing star."
Who is this Nietzsche guy, and what is he talking about with this crazy chaos and dancing star thing?
Well, Nietzsche was an elite German philosopher who wrote on a stratospheric level that is way above most of us normal mortals. But putting that tough reading aside, I figured if a really smart guy is talking about the qualities, mannerisms, and thought processes of elite people, then I better listen and so should you, even if that means that we need to read his work three or four times just to understand some of it.
So, what do you hear when Nietzsche says, "One must still have chaos in oneself to give birth to a dancing star"?
Let's break it down. Here is the first part of that bold statement from Nietzsche: "One must still have chaos in oneself... " Well, I think this means that we can't be content with our present circumstances. We have to be a little unsatisfied. Maybe even angry enough to take massive action in our lives and thus create a life of good CHAOS for ourselves!
Let's try the second part of Nietzsche's bold statement now. "... give birth to a dancing star." Hmm... This sure does sound like something really BIG and BRIGHT, doesn't it?
Can humans really do something as grand, large, and magnificent as, "give birth to a dancing star"? Can we really create such a bright and glorious future in advance through manage a little chaos?
Maybe... Hmm... Well, I am pretty sure that almost every one of us is living far below our true human potential! I know that our true abilities are so vast, encompassing, and BIG that we can't even begin to truly understand what we are really capable of.
Maybe we all just need to have a little more faith in ourselves, and manage our chaotic lives just a little bit better. And then just maybe we too can empower ourselves to create something special and give birth to our own dancing star!
Now teens, and even tweens, go learn, lead and lay the way to a better world for all of us. Don't be scared of chaos, for that chaos will lead you to great things if you let it. Survive, Create, and then Thrive! And once again, thank you in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do.
