Slow down.

“Climb the mountain not to plant your flag, but to embrace the challenge, enjoy the air, and behold the view. Climb I­t­ so you can see the world, not so the world can see you.” — David McCullough


Slow down — even when everyone and everything are telling you the opposite.

We all want to be rich, skilled, and famous NOW, but instant gratification is the fast food of life. There’s a good reason why most lottery winners blow all of their money immediately — because they didn’t build the wealth with their hands, they have no respect for the process.

Your direction in life is born and bred from the life you have. 

Killing yourself to get to your ultimate lifestyle as soon as possible is not worth I­t­, and you’ll probably burn out before you get there.

No for me, I️ want to slowly, and steadily work my way towards reaching mastery.

This is your life right now.

As you move and breathe — this is your life.
As you work and pursue your goals — this is your life.
Standing in line, eating food, cherishing others — this is your life right now.

If everything sucks, you’re only a few steps away from building the ultimate life of your dreams if you’re willing to put in the effort and time investment to get there.

Greatness begins in the mundane or the fires of pain and discomfort. Struggles and challenges are the same things, the only difference is our perspective.

Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,

— Josh Waggoner
