Your hesitation makes you WEAK!
written by john c ashworth
Harsh, I know. But the truth is harsh. Like a shot of espresso without all the silly milk and sweeteners that tend to fatten you up like a hog. You can still drink it when it’s right there in it’s raw form, but it might not taste that good to you, and you certainly won’t enjoy it as much, especially if you’re used to masking its bitterness, or avoiding it altogether. If you can’t get out of it, get into it. And if you’re hesitating, you need to know that with each passing moment of inaction you are filling with entropy.
“Whatever it takes.”
Are you willing to do whatever it takes to make yourself a success? Most people are not. And so they sit, making excuses for their misery – their global hesitation. Why is this? Because growth, change, real living and success often take years of sacrifice, sometimes decades of doing whatever it takes, and most people aren’t even close to strong enough to endure this kind of punishment. Punishment might not be the the right word, but if you’re hanging in there like myself, you know that’s what it feels like a lot of the time. Pure punishment.
Are you truly willing to do whatever it takes to achieve your desired result? Or are you too busy justifying why your current pursuit is failing? Because you can’t always win. The olympics will continue to teach us that lesson over and over again over the next week or so. What these games will also teach us, however, is the discipline of pursuit.

PS I flipped over to twitter to alert my followers to this post tonight, and what should I find, but a perfect case in point for this post…
