Get Busy Living, Or Get Busy Dying

You only live once so get busy.

Time’s ticking.

Enough is enough.

If you don’t want the rest of your life to resemble your past, you have to get busy. Get to work. Successful people are always busy, whereas average people got way too much free time on their hands.

If you’re busy, you’re productive and you’re moving towards your goals and dreams.

A person who is busy will never remain stagnant.

You got to take responsibility for your life.

You have to take control of your destiny.

I know it seems hard, but realize life is all about cause and effect. Right now, if you are like most you’re probably the effect. A bunch of things are happening and you are feeling the effects. Other people are making the moves and you’re just watching. You’re on the sidelines while they are on the court.

Well the question I have for you is, aren’t you tired yet?

Aren’t you tired of watching your life pass you by while others are making their dreams come true?

Every day there is someone who is making their dreams a reality. I’m not talking about mediocre dreams; I’m talking about huge dreams. Every single day someone is transforming their vision into reality.

They are beating you. They want it more than you and hence they have the upper hand. While you’re sitting on your ass all day waiting for things to happen, they are making things happen. How do you expect to win if all you do is chill?

Success comes from being uncomfortable.

You can’t expect to succeed without going through hell. You have to be willing to sacrifice. I know I’ve said this before and I’ll probably say it again, but for some of you, you have to realize your prime years are about to be a thing of the past. You cannot afford to keep messing around. You have to take charge. If you don’t you are F’d. You are done. There is no coming back from it.

As a result, you need to wake up and realize your dreams. More importantly you need to chase your dreams.

Get busy. Time is ticking. Each day you are getting closer to death.

What the hell are you waiting for?

Get out and do something. Become somebody. Are you content with living and dying without having done anything major? Without impacting the world? If not, it may be time to change your actions.

Take the right actions which will give rise to the life you want. You cannot say you want one thing and yet you keep doing another. Nothing will ever happen for you if this is how you approach life.

Look at the great ones.

From P. Diddy to Mark Zuckerberg. Do you think these guys sit on their asses all day waiting for opportunities to land on their lap? Hell no. They are aggressive. I don’t know about you, but when I see Diddy in action, I see aggressiveness at its finest and that is why he is where he is today whereas you are still stuck in the same old position.

When others gave up and took NO for an answer, he found a way. When others thought the mountain was too high to climb, he continued.

Therefore, I encourage you to do the same.

The bottom line is you need to get busy if you want to make your dreams a reality. If you don’t someone else will and they will come out on top.

Time is ticking and your life is reaching its expiration date so GET BUSY.
