Default does anyone feel they are destined to be something great

i know this may seem a bit silly but sometimes when i get overwhelmed by my anxietys...........i sometimes get a weird feeling like evrything is ok

i am really bad at trying to explain things but what i am trying to say is that...........i have always that i am different but not always in a bad way, its almost like i have this feeling that one day i am going to achieve something brilliant and i truly believe that i will...............its really weird

and other times i feel like i am going to be one of those ppl who die young and that i am only here for a short time and need to make the most of it but cant because of my sp

i have noticed that a lot of ppl on here are really talented
eg: drawing, writing or great at giving advice to others

just wondering if anyone feels like there is so much more to them but cant quite put your finger on what it is?
or if you do know. what is it that makes you.......YOU ?

Maybe once I believed this, but not anymore. I don't feel there is a great purpose to everything. But I guess it is a blessing to be alive so we should make the most of it and try to enjoy it.

I don't really felt destined to become someone great... but I always have this feeling that if I just become more confident and active... i know that I could become an achiever!... I especially feel this when I am faced in a desperate situation where I am forced to give my best in a task... because most of the time, it makes me achieve something that I don't usually achieve when I am in my usual self (sometimes it even goes beyond/ levels with the other talented people/achievers that I know). And everytime it happens, it doesn't fail to surprise myself and the people who knew me.

And so from those experiences, I was able to believe that "inner self of mine"... but then.... I don't really have that drive.... I mean, I tried to become more energetic for a change but then my laziness and procrastination always fails me. And i don't think I wanted to feel an extreme pressure just to awaken that "inner self"!

As a kid I might have thought this. Even though I was very shy, I suppose I believed in myself. Yes, back then at times I would think I could or I was destined to do great things.

But not anymore.. as I got older, I started to understand the reality of my situation.

Now I think about being rich or famous.. but I realise that to be great you either got to be very talented, aggressive or both. I don't think I am that talented, but more importantly I am not that ambitious or driven and I am certainly not aggressive.

I think the idea that I may be something great is the only reason I'm still alive. Sure, I feel like shit now, and that I'm stuck in a hole or something, but there has to be a way out of this hole. Once I'm able to get out of this hole, I have to hope something great will come my way. Life can't be this shitty forever, and if it was, there would be no point at all...


Peace

What do you want? Read bio's of successful people, in whatever field, and they generally start young, and have an idea of what they want and work towards that.

Grandiose visions really don't mean anything if you can't back them up. Like, I might potentially be an amazing guitar player, but if I don't pick up a guitar and practice then I won't ever know...

It's not about grandiose visions its about doing things now that will erupt into greatness when you move past this horrible time in your life. It's either that or kill myself, so I'll see what life has to offer...

Peace

I always thought I was different from everyone else and destined for something big. But eventually I realised I'm not that different from anyone else and the chances of me being destined for something big are pretty small.

Yeah, I know I have certain talents that make me unique from some people but everyone does have atleast one thing that makes them different.

You really are no different or no more destined for great things than anyone else.

I used to think this when I was younger, but not any more. These days I view myself as having a lot of potential rather than greatness. Potential which hopefully one day (fingers crossed :wink: ), will be fulfilled.
