You have the opportunity
But that doesn’t mean you’ll take it.
Every day we have opportunities
I know because I have waisted many of them.
But every single day we have an opportunity to create, Yep even the way the world is right now we still have that opportunity.
To create change in our life, To create something great, To create meaning…
But just because the opportunity is there, Does not mean you will take it.
And just because the opportunity is there does not mean it will be handed to you, You are not entitled to the opportunities you have to earn them.
You have to go out there and do the work required.
Knowing this are you going to sit there and let another day slip by?
Or are you going to take the opportunity in front of you?
The universe does not care if you are a nice person.
You can’t sit around expecting good things to happen to you, expecting the universe to reward you for being nice.
You need to take action.
Because to be honest the universe probably does not even know you exist, We are about as relevant to the universe as a pebble on the beach…
So stop expecting the universe to reward you.
You want something, You want magic results, YOu want your life to change…
Then you need to take action.
You need to do the work.
And not just once, but every day until you have the results you want.
Then you need to keep on doing the work to maintain those results and do even more work to get different results.
Because that’s life
And the work never stops.
The only way to learn is to live
– The midnight library
We’re going to make mistakes
We’re never going to get to right the first time
Or the second
Or the third
But just because we messed up doesn’t mean we can sit around and do nothing
We messed up and we’re going to do it again
Because that is life and that is how we learn
A penny saved is still just a fucking penny
I really disagree with this quote, like yeah on the whole a penny isn’t a lot on it’s own, but added up with other pennies then eventually its going to amount to something.
But it’s also like saying oh its just £10 it doesn’t matter if you spend it…
Then before you know it you’ve spent over £100 on little £10 things…
From a different angle its like saying oh its only one apple it doesn’t matter if you eat it or not
A penny saved is the changed in thinking you are doing.
It means instead of spending you made a decision to cut back and one day itll be £100 saved etc
One apple isn’t much in the grand scheme of things but its the start to building habits.
A penny saved is a penny saved, well done.
The smallest things amount the biggest over time
Problems open up possibilities
But only if your willing to admit that you have a problem.
Only if you are willing to admit that you have gone wrong somewhere.
Only then will the possibility present itself.
Because the mist will not clear and present the possibility of we are lying to ourselves and saying everything is ok when it isn’t.
Admit you have a problem.
See the possibilitie it opens up.
Take action on it.
