Life is NOT a dress rehearsal.
This IS the main event.
The longer you leave it to make your run at success, the harder it becomes.
Are YOU marking time?
I see so many unhappy people in this world. They hate their jobs, they don’t like their neighbors, they detest their boss, they don’t like their own appearance, they’re too fat, they’re too unfit and they are envious of movie stars.
Why are so many people like this?
People are dissatisfied with their station in life.
They see other people getting and doing the things that they want while they sit and stagnate.
If you suggest to them that maybe they could try something different, out come those immortal words: “Nah! That’d never work!” If you suggest that maybe they could increase or improve the quality of their output, out come those fateful words: “Nah. Can’t be bothered!” To suggest that they might like to read a book instead of sit and watch endless hours of mindless TV they will look at you as if you are quite mad.
Their lives are negative because their thinking is negative.
What is your thinking like? Ever questioned it?
Life is NOT a dress rehearsal. This IS the main event. The longer you leave it to make your run at success, the harder it becomes.
Make your life the main event. Get yourself a standing ovation from other achievers for your own success. There is so much opportunity and so little time. Your time is NOW!
And get off the fence – one way or another!
