My Timeline – Your Timeline

Timeline, we all have our timeline in this life. What is timeline…? A timeline is a display of a list of events in chronological order. It also means a schedule of activities or event, also a timetable. We all are sharing this world but we don’t share the same map and timetable.

Too many people are not living on their own timeline but others. This is one overlooked area which is affecting a lot of people. Everything we want in life is embedded in each of our timeline. So, when a man choose to live or follow someone else timeline where he has no entitlement, he’ll begin to struggle in life.

We all have a purpose for being here, we have different capacity, different destinies. We all are unique in our own different ways. No one should compare himself or herself with another. Our speed is different, our style is not the same.

… You can aspire to be a better person but not another person.

A lot of things causes people to live a wrong life and part of those things are…

  • Timidity
  • Fear
  • Low Self-esteem
  • Inability to discover oneself
  • Peer pressure, among others.

There are many reasons why people choose to live someone else life and not theirs and doing this only brings struggle and pain. For example…

You are a business student and your timetable shows you will do Financial accounting and Economics to be who you are supposed to be in life and then, you left your class because of one funny reason you only know into a science class where the timetable indicate chemistry and physics and you choose to be a part… You will struggle, get frustrated, maybe give up along the way because it’s not who you are.

… The source of many people’s problem across the world today is living the life that is not theirs.

When a car runs beyond its ability, a crash is most certain. It’s like racing a Ferrari with a Toyota Camry, both are good cars but with different strengths. If a Camry tries to cruise like the Ferrari, I don’t know…it’s going to be a bad experience.

Don’t look at the other person fast pace life, that’s how it is in their timeline. For the fact that someone went ahead of you does not mean you won’t get there too. You have your own timeline. Some people are destined to be millionaire in their twenties, some in their thirties, forties or fifties. Trying to live like the other person will only bring struggle and troubles, it can also bring death. There is greatness in all of our timeline, but in different styles and time. Stay focus.

Some people are meant to be musician but they are a banker, some are supposed to be a lawyer but they are marketer, some a politician but they are meant to be a comedian. I’m just saying… This is why people struggle too much in their life. This is why things seems to be out of control. You are not meant to be anybody but you. Not every vehicle uses petrol/gasoline some uses diesel to function. If you mix them wrong, nothing will function.

…To function well, you need to be you. To be original, you need to be you. The best person you can ever be is you.

Your timeline is different from mine but one thing is assured, if we stay on track and focus, greatness is there for us all.

Thanks for your time. I’m glad to spend my time with you.

  1. And life is so amazing, beautiful in their simplicity, when we just are ourselves and follow our own dreams and passions. And that I would call freedom 😊 I’ve enjoyed reading it! 😊

  2. Time is of the essence. One thing people always ask me is, how do you do it with all my kids, but it’s time! If you manage your time write, there will be nothing you can not do, you can not get to, you can not get done. It’s all up to you and how you manage your time. Every minute counts, use it wisely. I also have my kids on a schedule – of course it’s ok to bend some days, making sure they don’t get β€˜bored’ and also so that I can get my own things done as well, like the blog and my online store.

    Great post Rotimi, I am convinced the lack of time management makes one fall behind in not being able to achieve many things.

      1. Thank you so much for the sweet comment! We all can achieve anything in our days if we don’t over schedule and use our time wisely. There’s no time to slack, I’ll slack when I get to my goal, for now, hard work will always pays off. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ½

    1. Hmm…. Manish these are great words from your great mind. You are absolutely right. Your words gave a huge back up to the post.

      Really appreciate your time and words. Do enjoy the rest of the day my friend.


  3. This is a beautiful and well stated post. We all live by our Timelines (which are different & unique individually), & to make the best out of your timeline, you must be original and only you is responsible for the final result
