That's not my copy. Yet, how many pieces of content you like and feel as if they're a part of you? I apologize in advance, but this link is the best I could do:
This was originally a printed ad, if I'm not mistaken. Now, in the top left corner of the page you get when you click on a link you are going to notice the famous picture of Usain Bolt's untied Puma running shoe at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. You can Google this to get a better picture. So, not only did he win the 100m race, but also he broke the world record. All of these while running with an untied shoe. Here's Puma ad text:
"He was joking on the starting blocks. He reacted last to the gun. He ran against the wind. He didn't tie his PUMAs. He jogged over the finish line. He broke the world record. Then he danced. And reminded us that Being the best should be fun. Usain Bolt. 3 gold medals. 3 world records."
You may say, so what's the big deal? Are you Bolt's fan? Well, there's the line that kept me thinking and being restless.
"And reminded us that being the best should be fun."
Well, Bolt reminded me that there are people who run through the life with such an ease and achieve amazing things as if it is nothing. Maybe, they're nothing more than good pretenders. I don't know. That's the reason why I'm writing about it. Here's one more example of this fascinating I don't care attitude. As you know Bob Dylan won the Nobel prize for literature. They couldn't find him for days. When they finally found and inform him about the great news, he was like, OK and so what? I also remember that there was an actress who won the Oscar. She didn't attend the ceremony. What was here excuse? Well, she said she had something more important to do, like to take care of the flowers in her garden or something like that.
What all of these people have in common? Well, it seems to me that they aren't particularly serious about the amazing things they do. They aren't being modest, if that's what you think. This is the way they are. They don't care about the money and success, and yet they get these even more than expected. On the other hand, you have thousands of people who burn in a desire, who treat these goals as their only priorities in life, and they fail. What's the catch?
Does it mean that these people with an attitude "wave your hands in the air like you just don't care" are so superior that they can allow themselves this kind of a behavior? Or, maybe this approach allows them to be relaxed when it cares the most. I remember in my university days, the catch was to be as relaxed as possible on the day of your exams. I also heard that some actors prefer to have a drink or two just before they go on stage or record a movie scene. Why? To kill the tension and give their best while being completely relaxed.
Now, after I shared all of these thoughts abut this phenomenon that has been intriguing for quite some time, can you answer this question: Why those who care the least are able to earn and succeed the most? Is Bolt your kind of a guy in every possible way, or you have the courage that you're going to end up just like me, fighting but failing? Do you really have this amazing ability to wave your hands in the air like you just don't care, or you are one of those pretenders, who seem they don't care, but they're boiling inside?
