Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?
Those few lines from the Eminem song ‘Lose Yourself’ started resonating into my head like a strong call. How many of us have missed opportunities in our lives? How many of us didn’t even pay attention to them?
It is never too late to do things the right way. We just have to take attention and not to miss the right moment. Everybody is given the chance to ‘capture’. Of course, it will require main qualities like inner strength and a strong willpower. But if we go to the end, we will be rewarded.
‘Lose Yourself’ is an introspective and an optimistic song. There are so many good lessons and encouragements to learn from it.
‘You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
you own it…’
You need to use your instinct to find the right moment. You need to act now, if you keep waiting it may be too late for you.
When you feel deep inside that it’s your time to shine, you just have to run…the moment is yours, you own it…so capture it right now!
Follow the song’s words:
‘…you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo…’
Like Jimmy, we sometimes have to go through difficult situations. We will have to prove our inner capacity, our strength. We will certainly have to fight a lot of doubts and anxiousness before we reach our goal. No matter what kind of circumstances we are going through, we may reach the point where we feel that we have no right to give up and feel the way Jimmy feels:
“He’s so mad, but he won’t give up that
Is he? No
He won’t have it , he knows his whole back city’s ropes
It don’t matter, he’s dope
He knows that, but he’s broke
He’s so stacked that he knows
When he goes back to his mobile home, that’s when it’s
Back to the lab again yo
This whole rap shit
He better go capture this moment and hope it don’t pass him…”
We are ready now to conquer the world. We must have enough rage inside to fight and not to accept failure, come to the point where you will say with Jimmy:
‘Success is my only mothafuckin option…’
We must refuse the idea to be failing in our mind, always try until we reach our final success.
Then we will be able to claim with Eminem:
‘ You can do anything you set your mind to, man.’
A sentence that has become even more than my daily life philosophy, it is my motto and I’m very proud to apply to it. It actually works!
