“It is wise to direct your anger towards problems – not people; to focus your energies on answers – not excuses.”William Arthur Ward
A great excuse is still an excuse. That’s a tough pill to swallow but it’s true. Especially if the excuse is holding you back.
Age is an excuse you hear a lot. I’m too old… or you’re too young…
Tell that to all the oldies over 50 workings hard, kicking butt, and owning their life.
Tell that to all the twenty-somethings on the 30 under 30 lists.
But I’m not them, I don’t have what they’ve got.
It’s true, you aren’t them (you are you) and you may not be as well off or as connected or smart as they are. No problem. (“Good”, as Jocko Willink, says.) That means you got some work to do.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
