If You Can’t Stop Thinking About It, You Shouldn’t Stop Working For It

Once you find the right things or people to focus on, to devote your life to, life becomes better – instantly.

Not necessarily easier, but definitely better, more rewarding, more meaningful and more hopeful.

The hard part is continuing the pursuit when life makes it difficult to continue doing so.

Never give up on the things and people who mean the most to you in life because if you do, your life will lose meaning.

If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it. Don’t stop pushing ahead, no matter how difficult it may be.

You can take rests along the way, but make sure you get up and continue heading in the right direction as soon as you regain energy.

If you give up on the things and individuals you believe hold meaning, then you are, quite literally, giving up on yourself. Nothing could ever be sadder.

"Better to be a poorly equipped doer than an over-equipped poser. " -G.Ramsay

Everyone wants to succeed but very few people are willing to step into the cold waters. Do you see the problem here? In the history of the world, no marathon race has ever been won (or even finished) by someone who never left the starting line.

You're still stuck at the starting line all along because you don't want to start small and grow bit by bit from there.

Ignoring the vast number of items whose importance falls below a certain threshold.
Not the absence of a line at our door, but a line with no truly important people remaining in it.

This process may well be occurring right now. A moment ago when you read the phrase, “no truly important people,” above, you probably flinched a little and thought it was somewhat callous. I flinch when I read it, too, and I wrote it! But this understandable response is exactly why we devote time and attention to people who don’t truly merit the investment. There’s a fine line between effective triage and being an asshole, and many of us are so worried about crossing that line that we don’t even get close.
