Quote of the Day

One of my co-workers said something that really struck me.

We were talking about settling in life, and how a lot of people use their circumstances to make excuses on why they are not living life to the best of their abilities. We thought about people who use their children as reasons to not pursue their own dreams. How some will use the lack of money as a reason to push what they want aside, because it is easier than changing their lifestyle to get what they want. Others use alcohol, and the “good times with friends” to stay stuck in a lifestyle that inhibits them from pursuing their deepest desires, all the while not realizing those nights cost a lot more than just a bar tab.

We discussed that sometimes there are legitimate reasons to put things on hold, that sometimes, your kids do come first, or that four year degree will inhibit the short term goals, but will enable you to achieve greater things.

“Do what you gotta do, but don’t be content with where you are”

It is a great summary of the above. Sometimes life happens, but when it stops throwing punches, get up and get after it.

You are in this life, with this body and mind once. There are dreams you have, things you need to accomplish, don’t let anything or anyone stop you from getting them done.

Write down three things that you need to do, that you wouldn’t feel complete without accomplishing.

Now do them.
