Jump Fully Into Life
Any energy you put into avoiding responsibility is a waste. You’re going to have to step up and take responsibility sooner or later, so do it now.
Dealing with life is often difficult. Yet the alternative makes life far more difficult.
You cannot avoid consequences. However, you can determine what they will be by the way you live.
Today, you can choose the consequences that will fall upon you tomorrow. Choose positive, desirable consequences by engaging in responsible, value-creating behavior.
When there are challenges, put forth the effort to successfully get past them. When there are opportunities, do the work to transform them into achievements.
Hiding from life and its demands is never a good strategy. Choose instead to jump fully into life with the best you have, and make it the best it can be.
