“Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is.”
~ Vince Lombardi
Today’s inspirational quote is all about motivation. Without it, nothing is possible. Motivation is what gets us off our asses, and propels us to achieving what we want to. Problem is, many I’ve known like to talk about winning in their lives, but they aren’t willing to do anything about it. To be honest, it pisses me off a bit.
Why in the world would you chatter on about what you want; appear to be motivated; yet do absolutely nothing to move closer to a goal. It boggles the mind (for me anyway). For me, empty words are rampant today. I hear others saying (or even read it on Facebook) how one day, they will be [blankety blank] or how they want [blankety blank], yet they sit on their haunches, stuck in a perpetual state of ‘ready…. set….’ and never reach the actual ‘go’.
It’s almost as if there are so many people out there with so many wonderful dreams, but not one of them are willing to put in the work to achieve it. I don’t live my life that way, and it’s frustrating for me to sit idly by and watch. It takes every bit of my effort to not get up, pull them in close by their ears, and ask them what they are waiting for. Honestly, I bite my tongue ALL the time.
To me, it’s merely lip service.
Here’s some quick advice – get off your ass and go achieve your dreams.
