"Your competition isn't other people. Your competition is your procrastination. Your ego. The unhealthy food you're consuming. The unhealthy relationships you're involved with. The unhealthy habits you keep. The knowledge and education you neglect. The negative behavior you're nurturing, and your lack of creativity and want to, to think. Compete against that." Somebody said this. I enhanced it.
The point is, some of you may think you're grown. Life will teach you differently. Some of you may think you're not ready to be grown. Life will teach you differently. Either way, you have to decide what kind of life you're going to have. Your life will be what you decide and how you orchestrate it to be. There's no magic dream where you wake up and have the life you fantasized about. You have to create that life. No one can want success for you more than you want it for yourself. And finally, there's no such thing as luck. "Luck is when preparation meets opportunity." So, what opportunities will you create for yourself?
