“You cannot dream yourself into a character. You must hammer and forge yourself one.” – Froude

There are so many things I want to do. I honestly believe that I can put a dent in the Universe. I want that. I want to change things. To achieve greatness.

I want my words to mean something. I want to inspire others. I want to leave something behind.

But most of all, I want to be the proof that anything is possible. That circumstances can be beaten, that one can overcome adversity by sheer power of will

I struggle. Yes. It is difficult. I have to fight for even the most basic of things.

I want to hustle every day for the rest of my life; that is the only way to become better than I used to be.

Quotes don’t work unless you do.

You’ll never be rich enough to pay someone else to do your push-ups for you.

Words are nice and they mean a lot, but we should never forget that actions speak louder than words. And, ultimately, we are the sum total of our choices, not our words.

  1. This is something I’ve been struggling with lately. I thought I could make a difference in the world but this week I lost that belief. Now all I want to do is go back to school so I can make money. I am willing to forfeit my destiny so I can make enough money to get the hell out of the hole I’m in. I guess the only person I can ever hope to save is myself.

  2. Wow I really like this phrase “ultimately, we are the sum total of our choices, not our words.” Life in its totality is not an easy journey unless you’re born with a silver (or even golden) spoon. The struggle might be hard now but pull through it and it will eventually be worth it! Baby steps will get you there, its good to envision but pragmatism sells. Be realistic about your goals, set sub-goals and you’re good to go. Afterall, whatever that we are in our present is based off our past choices which is something you can’t change. But the beauty in that is that our future will be based off our present choices and that my friend, is something you can change.
    Wishing you all the best in the choices that you make :)

  3. i read somewhere one day some time ago: “… water does not flow until the pump is primed…” i do not recall the author of this snipet but it primes my pump of words even though some dont make sense the more the water flows the better.
