“Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.”– William Feather
If you found yourself in the middle of nowhere and you were starving, would you look for a food for a couple hours and then give up? If your life depended on doing something, would you do it? No matter how much it hurt, how badly you wanted to rest, how bitter and disillusioned you were.
Well, your life does depend on what you do each and every single day. The quality of your life depends on what you do on a daily basis. What you do today translates into the way you’ll live life tomorrow. Continue reading
“Knowledge is power”. How many times have you heard this phrase before? I know that in my life I have heard this plenty of times but I really question whether it holds true alone. Whether simply knowing of something is enough to help you get by.
When I started to invest my time in reading books on philosophy and psychology it certainly made me more aware of new perspectives. This awareness did benefit me in initiating my path to self-discovery and success. However, it was only when I put down the books and started to take action that I saw more change.

“Most people will spend their lives doing jobs that they don’t particularly enjoy, and will eventually save up enough money to stop doing those jobs just in time to start dying instead. Don’t be one of those people. There’s a difference between living, and just surviving. Do something that you love, and find someone to love who loves that you love what you do.
It really is that simple.
And that hard.” – John Connolly
I believe that most of us crave adventure. We want our lives to make us feel. We crave the bittersweet excitement brought on by uncertainty.
