Arise Time: 11:02 a.m.. but lay back down until 11:18
Be honest with yourself.
When you are honest with yourself, you know exactly what you want and exactly how to achieve those things.
We spend so much time distracted with words and wishes of our families, friends, parents elders and so-called experts. All of these people claim to know better than we do about our own selves.
We know what is best for our own lives. In listening to and entertaining the external distractions, we confuse our internal knowledge of self. We spend inordinate amounts of time pursuing what we do not want.
In remaining true to ourselves and true to our souls, we do what is necessary to achieve what we want from this Life.
To quote retired Navy SEAL John “Jocko” Willink, we should “get default aggressive” in the pursuit and achievement of our goals. This does not mean to run around punching people in the face while taking what we want. Rather, the things you want, Go And Get Them.
Make the damn effort to make the Life you want.
It’s your Life. Don’t waste your time thinking about what external forces want for you.
