Life is waiting on you to decide.
The path that does not require courage is the called the slow lane.
We Americans have so much potential. We just need to cultivate an environment that allows us to let go of our Cro-Magnon nationalism and start living like citizens of earth.
Hard work is painful when life is devoid of purpose. But when you live for something greater than yourself and the gratification of your own ego, then hard work becomes a labor of love.
Topics: Hard Work
Tackling challenges that are too big for you is what makes you grow as a human being. Why do you think this problem keeps coming up in your life, staring you in the face?. Do you think you’re supposed to ignore it and hide from it and wait for someone else to solve it for you?. If you notice it, you own it.
Pour the bulk of your time into action, not deciding. The state of indecision is a major time waster. Don’t spend more than 60 seconds in that state if you can avoid it. Make a firm, immediate decision, and move from uncertainty to certainty to action. Let the world tell you when you’re wrong, and you’ll soon build enough experience to make accurate, intelligent decisions.

Willpower is the spearhead of self-discipline.
Future is purely a mental construct—an illusion—because you never exist in the future, only in the present. By using a consistent, internally congruent vision of the future to make decisions day after day, you start to build momentum, and you’ll ultimately achieve your goals.
If you want to succeed you must be congruent.
Passion requires focused direction, and that direction must come from three other areas: your purpose, your talents, and your needs.
When you discipline yourself to do what is hard, you gain access to a realm of results that are denied everyone else. The willingness to do what is difficult is like having a key to a special private treasure room.
