Do You Really, Really Want It?

Too many people had become victims and witnesses of this simple truth. The one truth we were afraid to acknowledge. Afraid that it would tell us who we really were.

“If you really want it, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.”

Once there was a boy who loved the game probably more than anyone. But he was always told that he was too short to be anywhere on the court. So he worked out when no one else was on the court. And he worked out really hard like his life depended on it. And one day he got a shot. Literally and figuratively. And guess what we know of him today?

“By acclamation, Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time.”

– I didn’t say it. His biography on the official NBA website did.

What’s holding you back today? What’s your excuse?

Make Your Future Self Thank You

If right now you felt too old and too underachieved, then you only had your past self to blame.

Nobody, not even God, was responsible for your condition today. Your past self chose and made who you were today.

So, be kind to your future self.

Make sure your future self is healthy, happy, blessed, balanced, and whole. Even further, make sure your future family is well taken care of. Then they could all thank you for what you did today.

Work harder and smarter. Save more and spend less. Start living healthily. Go fight for that special someone. Pursue your dreams. Educate yourself. Invest. Do whatever you need to do.

And. Stop. Making. Excuses.

Done is Better than Perfect

We strived for perfection all the time. We were taught that way, or at least we thought we were.

We wanted to create the best product, using the best materials available, with the best designs we could think of, and did all of those with the best team in the world. Ever.

And it’s all good.

Unless when it’s not.

And it caused us to wait for the best to come along.

“I haven’t started my cooking lesson because I’m still looking for the best knife and spatula.”

Probably You Reading This

Ever heard of something similar to that? You got the idea. Didn’t need to use more examples.

Done is better than perfect. Go do whatever you’re about to do.
