Go big or go home. If you aren’t having a landmark day then it’s been wasted. If you aren’t meteoric, you aren’t worth it. If you haven’t made your first million yet, you never will. If you don’t achieve all of your goals this very instant, they will never happen.
McDonalds, microwaves, snapchat, netflix.
We live lives in a world hell bent on instantaneous-momentary gratification. The idea of something not happening instantly, or not going your way is “a sign from the universe” telling you that you did it wrong or this just isn’t for you. We don’t save, we don’t plan, and we sure as hell don’t commit. We don’t even commit to our past–no regrets.
The older we get, the faster things happen, and it’s getting harder and harder to hold on to our dreams.
We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact.
The reality is that we are not meteoric (at least not yet) and we shouldn’t expect to be. Many of the greatest contributors to human history didn’t get started until they were “much too old to be effective,” at least in our culture.
Henry Ford didn’t even start Ford Motor Company until he was 40.
If you want to take anything home it’s this: The way that we live fulfilling lives, the way we make a difference in our world and in our selves is Left foot Right foot. One day at a time. One step at a time. One choice at a time.
Every choice we make takes us one step closer to being the type of people we want to become or not. Every decision leads us one step closer to our goal or not. Choose today to be a person of character, to slow down, to be intentional, and to start becoming who you want to be and achieving what you want to achieve.
It is possible, but it takes time. It will be hard, and it won’t be over quickly. But when you begin to see the beauty in slow character growth, you will begin to climb that mountain, that matterhorn, that you never thought you could.
