. . . WALK AWAY FROM THE 97%.
DON'T USE THEIR VOCABULARY,
DON'T USE THEIR EXCUSES.
DON'T USE THEIR METHOD OF DRIFT AND NEGLECT.
WALK AWAY, JOIN THE 3%.
TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR OWN LIFE.
This is sort of the answer to last week's quote. If you want "uncommon outcomes" and "extraordinary achievements," you have to do and think differently than the majority, than the 97%.
What if instead of watching as much as TV as the people we know, we use that time to exercise (if we want to lose weight)? What if instead of spending hours social networking, we jot notes for that novel idea (if we want to write a book)? What if instead of gossiping on the phone, we take a class (if we want to learn a new language, a new skill, meet new people)?
It still boggles my mind that this is easier said than done. Wouldn't you think that "taking charge of your own life" would be a given? Maybe for some people it is. (If you're out there, please stop by and share your secret.)
As for the rest of us, let's put ourselves in that 3% - some how, some way - this week. We can do it!
