I can't decide what's worse; those who talk a good game but are really doing nothing or those who "hate" on the ambitions of others. I'm not here to pass judgment on anyone's life. However, I sincerely have a problem with people who see "trying" as a wasteful cause.
For the past few years, I've been focused on something that's very passionate to me: growing leaders. I truly have a genuine agenda for helping others reach their potential; nonetheless, I can be lethally blunt when it comes to reality checks. Not just with others, but with my self. Cowards often hide behind secrets, lies, self-doubt, or a combination of all. It's amazing how some people will advocate for you to fail; to give-up; to sabotage yourself; before they will ever encourage you to be better. Why?
People who have never ventured outside of the same world they lived in as an adolescent, often have a hard time seeing beyond their comfort zone. It's the very definition of ignorance: unknowing due to lack of experience. If your best friend is the same friend you had in high school, living the same way they did then, with the same mindset, and speaking the exact same "language" they did at 18 a decade later- then you may want to consider if they add value to your life or hinder your growth.
Far too many people will partake in wasting away at "good timing" before they take up on an opportunity to invest in themselves. They'd rather waste money on feeling good for a moment, than feeling good for a lifetime. It has to be a fear; a fear of stepping out of the box of what they've always done, to take a chance at something different. Consequently, risk is a part of growing.
Fascinated by pop-culture, reality t.v, and celebraties, they'd [cowards] rather live vicariously through the life of others than to put effort into a life of their own. Cowards suffocate themselves in other peoples business to find validation in their own life, and to avoid their own issues. A coward will rather cause havoc, than assess themselves. Being a coward is a disturbing full time job.
Beware of cowards; they will bring you down. Focus on purpose; write the things you want out of life down and review them everyday; make them a focus in your life and have a plan for obtaining them. And most of all, believe in yourself; because, if you don't few people will and you'll become no better than a coward.
LIVE... It's an urgent matter.
