What Ryan Gosling said…“… … to pursue dreams, when they know, that the percentage of them achieving that dream is never… & they do it anyway (shrugs), & everyone there shares the same dream, & no one’s sure if it was a premonition or a delusion… & there’s only one way to find out.”
(complete with his cute hand gestures for extra charm hahah),
really gets to me, because, well, those aspiring actors, made much sacrifice & had the guts to really pursue what they dream of. even if, what they had/ what they saw, was but a delusion, i still think they deserve some sort of credits & even respect, for giving it a shot.
knowing that the possibility is so small, yet … just still going for it… again & again … man, thats hard, but courageous, & won’t you say, faithful too?
but of course, as mentioned in 1 Corinthians 9:26 (NKJV) – Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. that uncertainty in the verse is definitely referring to the level of preparedness & readiness of the runner. Ryan Gosling sure went for all (or at least, most) of the interviews well-prepared.
No matter how many tests I have to go through, no matter how many failures I encounter, may I keep 1Cor 9:26 in mind always.
