There are many times my mind starts drifting to a surreal utopia where people feed me cool grapes on a white sand beach while fanning me with palm fronds in a land free of taxes. Ahhhh…
But then I snap out of it! Thankfully, these dreams don’t consume my drive… because I don’t let them. I schedule my own reality checks two times a day by examining my daily goals and results to ensure I’m moving ahead and doing things that matter — because in the end, that IS what matters.
We can request help from others, but progress is personal. It starts with a personal commitment to do-cide.
When Jack Canfield and I were writing The Success Principles for Teens we knew the first chapter had to be “Take 100% Responsibility for Your Life” because without a full understanding and application of this concept we’re merely reacting to life and observing from the sidelines.
Would you like to hope for a better life or have a better life? Well, then stop waiting and wishing and start planning and doing.
No, it’s not new or revolutionary, but sometimes we just need need a friendly reminder… The only person responsible and capable of making your life awesome is, you guessed it, YOU.
Be a Maverick,
