The world rarely goes as you plan.
It never does.
It is amazing how hard we each work at remaining where we already are, doing the same things over and over, and how little time we spend trying to change everything. To go where we want to go.
Everything changes and yet we spend hours trying to believe it does not and trying to stop it from happening.
We resist, and then the world changes anyway, often not the way we like, and I now believe that you need to not just embrace change, you need to drive change. You need to make it happen.
Change is a train, and you can lay tracks to guide that change in the general direction you want, or you can sit fearfully and hope the change goes where you want it to. Trust me, change never goes where you want. Never.
It is smarter for you to make the change happen, to make a conscious decision about what you want and then work hard to make it happen.
The secret to success is simple,
and success does not go to the smartest or the best;
It goes to the person who tried, who experimented and tried new things, and took risks
It goes to the person who focused on making it happen, who took single minded action.
It goes to the person who networked and made friends, and helped and gave to others,
And victory always goes to the one who didn't give up.
The world is full of people who want something better, but are afraid to change, or can't commit to the work, to the discipline.
You will do the work, you will get the job done, you will make things change.
Never give up. Ever.
“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
— Charles T. Munger”
