Passive

The whole idea and central theme of this blog post is going to be awfully similar to that of an older article of mine, Aggressive. Basically, the idea is this: life, depending on your perspective, is extremely short. There is no time to live passively, so spend every waking hour of your life working towards something that is important to you. Don’t fall into the common trap of, “Tomorrow I will,” because tomorrow, you probably won’t. Start working today. Even if it is just a small step towards something great. There is no harm in chipping away at a goal that you know will take a lot of effort spread over a long amount of time. I can’t even count how many times I say to myself, “I wish I would have started earlier.” 

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
— Zig Ziglar

Live with a purpose, and don’t let common obstacles get in the way of the life you think is optimal to yourself. Success is not defined by the amount of money you earn, or the number of followers you obtain. Success is completely subjective to each and every person. Learn enough about yourself that you can tailor every action you take to bring a benefit to both your immediate and distant future.

 

Don’t live passively.

Always have goals in mind.

Be happy.
