Iv’e learned the hard way over the years not to rely 100% on others for your inspiration. If you just take the time to self reflect on your own accomplisments and realize its okay to celebrate yourself then that will propel you to be a better person. In takes a shift in mindset but I believe a new way of thinking is always the key to your own success. If you rely too much on others you will be disappointed, however if you rely on yourself just a little, its up to you and you only to change your mindset and propel forword.
While on a trip to Las Vegas recently My girlfriend and I were walking down famous Las Vegas. BLVD when we noticed the city was hosting their annual Rock N’ Roll marathon. After the runners had all passed we noticed the street was still closed so I grabbed my girlfriends hand and walked out into the street. That’s when I saw it, the sidewalk was packed with shoulder to shoulder people yet the entire 4 lane street was open to anyone who wanted to walk or run. Why are we so conditioned in our lives to walk along the safe path? To me thats too crowded. Think differently, think outside the box and you might get to where you want to go faster.
Mark Twain once said “If they took away all your money, what would you be worth?” Those words spoke heavily on my heart. Legacy is the only thing you can’t spend and will last longer than any money ever will. Money is great but how you make it is more important. Think about how others perceive you, yes I know I said the one thing that others tell you not to do. Don’t let others judgement of you upset you but still listen, because arrogance can come out of not listening to criticism. What is your legacy? What are you worth?
