Losers resign their selves to an unsatisfying job and unproductive work habits, unhappy personal relationships. The fear of risk always blocks the possibility of success & fulfillment. Winners are always stretching their potential and seeking new innovations. As people get older and stuck in their habits they forget the excitement of experimentation and discovering new things. They therefore limit new growth and opportunities. They start to buy into a someday I’ll mindset of boredom & unhappiness. They forget how to best use the precious commodity of time. It’s your own responsibility not to squander and waste your time.
Everyone is given all their talents and all their potential at the time of their birth it is up to them to discover these gifts while they are alive. Michelangelo once told a group of people who were in awe of his sculptures that the subject was there in its original form all the time … all he did was cut away the excess. What ware you suppose to be at the end of your life? What talents do you have hidden below the surface? How much wealth & happiness are you entitled to?
Just remember the road to failure is littered with missed opportunities; whereas the road to success is paved with daily action. Opportunity never knows because it’s always inside of us.
Teddy Roosevelt once said “ Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs though checkered with failure , than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much because they live in that grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.”
