Here's a few thoughts... and I will write more soon as I process the last couple weeks.
Life happens and it WILL pass you by...most of us only pay attention to ourselves. If you see a need to change that, what are you waiting for? Stop making excuses.
if you want big things out of life, you must be willing to make big sacrifies - and it's not a sacrifice if it doesn't hurt.
Nothing that is truly significant happens easily...chase it down. It's worth it.
