EXTREME OWNERSHIP (No excuses)
If you’re bored. Find a hobby. Anything.
Go to Meetup.com and search anything which intrigues you.
Just pick something. Take action. Be bold and make a decision.
If you don’t like your new hobby, pick a new one.
You have permission to change your mind. Often.
You will eventually make this hobby your passion.
And there are few things more beautiful than watching someone pursue their passions. It’s something I love to witness.
If you want to make more money, develop a new skill set.
Or stay where you are and make yourself valuable. INVALUABLE!
Then ask for a raise.
If they refuse…. shop your skills around. Be a mercenary. Don’t be a victim.
If you feel dumb…read more, do more, surround yourself with interesting people.
If you don’t like your boyfriend/girlfriend… dump them. (WOW, I know)
Be single. Work on yourself, hardcore! Then find a new love. It’s ok.
Make better choices. Improve on the last one. It should be relatively easy, since
you are a better person. We tend to attract what we project. Chew on that for a minute.
If you came from a poor family, use that experience as fuel to power through the tough time.
Don’t allow yourself to use that as an excuse to continue being poor and broke minded.
If you want better friends, pick a hobby. HA! Got you there, right?
Do things with a new set of people. Some of them will become your new best friends, even if you drop this new hobby.
If you want to find the love of your life or simply a new significant other, find a hobby. HAHA!
Seriously. Get out. Be out.
Live out loud.
Show the world what drives you, motivates you, and even attracts you.
There are billions of people in the world. There is at least one for you.
Life is tough. No doubt. But make no mistake about it, there is still plenty of good and plenty of opportunity.
Be passionate. Everyone loves being around passionate people, not just me.
Unless you live in a third world country with no opportunities, there really is no excuse.
And it doesn’t have to be expensive. That’s how I did it.
Onward and upwards.
