Unfortunately, we often sit around waiting for someone to give us permission to do something. In order to achieve our goals and to reach our full potential, WE must give ourselves permission ... to be bold, take risks, get off our butt and be incredible. If you truly desire to achieve something, give write yourself a permission slip and go do it. “The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.” — Ayn Rand
There are not only two choices ... good or bad. We often simplify life into those two choices. Sometimes there is good and better or good and GREAT. The choice between good and bad is often obvious but still difficult to choose. The choice between good and great is less distinguishable and often much more difficult to choose because who wants to give up something good with the risk of not getting great? It isn't a theoretical question. The answer to the question is ... those who truly want to be GREAT and not simply good. “Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” John D. Rockefeller
In an attempt to not make something worse or simply out of fear or due to our own insecurity, we often will sit still and worry instead of stand up and start moving toward a solution. The magic "Problem Fairy" isn't flying around looking for a time to save you from yourself and your problems. If a problem resolves itself on it's own, it is pure luck. We have been given tools to solve most problems but tools sitting in a toolbox are useless. A tool can't do anything on it's own. A tool needs you to grab it and use it. Use your tools. “The best way out is always through.” Robert Frost
Too much time is wasted thinking and hoping and wishing, when that same time could be used DOING! “Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.” —Michael Jordan
We all love to enjoy the rewards of our hard work. The longer we live on this earth, the more we realize that we spent a huge chunk of the early portions of our life focusing more on the reward than on the actual hard work that allows us to celebrate the results. "Why do I feel so empty?" It is likely I didn't do anything to feel accomplished. The more work and the more difficult the path, the more rewarding the result will be. “Make Friday a day to celebrate work well done that you can be proud of knowing that you just didn’t put in time to the next paycheck.” Byron Pulsifer
