There’s no point in half-assing anything
This is your life, you only get one shot so make it count! What moves will you make today that will help cement your legacy? Are you staying at home binge-watching Netflix on the weekend or are you out in the community volunteering? Think about everything you do from sun up to sun down. Every decision, every hour, every minute. The most productive people in life who are making it count, do so by maximizing their time. They wake up early, stay up late, and squeeze as much into every day as they possibly can. Is that you? If not, think about what steps you can make today to get moving. There is no better time to make a change other than right now.
No matter what you do in life or where you’re going, hustle! Even the smallest things in life matter. And it’s not just for you, it’s also for the others who see what you do. You are an influencer even if that’s not what you signed up for. You are a reflection of everything you say and everything you do. In the age of social media you can bet that there are more people watching your moves than you think. You set the tone and if you’re going to do anything, you best put 100% effort into it, or else the end result will not meet your expectations. If you want to be a leader this is the route you must take because people are going to mimic you. Leaders wake up every day knowing that all the action and inaction they take makes a difference and that there is no half-assing when it comes to anything they do.
And it’s not just about doing something just to do it. There’s no point in just going through the motions. It’s about doing something with purpose, passion, and pride. If you’re going to show up to a soup kitchen to volunteer just to take a selfie to post on Instagram, you’re not there for the right reasons. When you want to do a good deed, you do it for the benefit of others not yourself. That’s what makes it all worthwhile – when you put others before your own self interests. That’s when it really counts.
Take this mentality with you wherever you go whether it’s for work, relationships, friends, family, or anything else. Every time you put your heart and soul into something, the end result is most likely what you were expecting. That’s the case because you’re making that effort and leaving nothing on the table. Go all in and leave absolutely no doubt with others that you busted your ass because they will respect you that much more and in the process you will pick others up along the way.
Stay hungry, stay driven, and stay motivated knowing that in this life, you can influence as many people as you want, so you better make your life count!
