It’s seems absurd to me when people say they are waiting for something good or successful to happen in their life when they are doing absolutely nothing to help make it happen. I know this because I used to have that mentality. I’m sorry to say that for a time in my life I lived in a way where I hoped someone would just walk up to me and offer me the perfect, successful career and/or life for which I longed.
As I began to study the lives of successful people I soon learned that nothing could be further from the truth. It would be the same as expecting someone to just show up and fill your car tank with gas and change your oil every 3,000 miles – all while you sit back and watch. Truly successful people live each day with purpose. They don’t sit idly as life passes by.
Anything worth having doesn’t happen by accident. It takes planning, decisions, and hard work. Even if you’re not exactly sure where you are headed at least do something. Start by working on yourself and practicing ways to be thankful, healthy, and thinking on the right things. You only need to do a little each day and the bigger picture will soon become more clear. Every single great success begins with a mere thought. Think about it and then put action behind it.
Life is too short to just keep waiting. Make your life happen today.
