There might be a chance that you’re struggling with life. You wouldn’t have time to read this if you weren’t. You should be busy making your wildest dreams come true.
I might be wrong. You might have a perfect life and I’m very happy for you if you do.
I won’t start talking about my life in this post but lets say that I wasn’t born with the best hand of cards.
Fortunately, I was blessed with great studying skills. Yes, I’ve always been a nerd. And I’ve always used my intelligence to solve my problems in life.
I’ve read it all: motivational books, biographies, inspirational stories, visualization techniques, everything my brain told me I needed to improve myself.
This helped me a lot but there was no permanent change inside of me. I realized my problem when I read the quote that changed my life.
What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do – John Ruskin
I felt like a loser. I wasted too many hours, weeks and months reading and for what?
You can be the smartest person in this world but that doesn’t mean shit if you’re not doing anything with it.
Don’t get me wrong. I still read every single day. The difference is that for every bit of reading that I do now, I make sure I’m implementing twice the amount of action.
Look, chances are that you’re a smart person. You wouldn’t be reading an inspirational blog if you weren’t.
Internalize Ruskin’s words. There comes a time where you have to drop the books and start making it happen.
Question of the Week: What’s your favorite book?
My Answer: I just finished reading The Alchemist. This is by far the best piece of writing I’ve ever laid my eyes on. It’s a true masterpiece. Before The Alchemist, my favorite book was Psychocybernetics.
