The 2nd part in our how not to be soft series is titled:
When The Sun Comes Up, You’d Better Be Running
What did you do when you woke up this morning?
I am sure a lot of you checked your phone, checked your Instagram likes or checked your Twitter followers. Or maybe some of you woke up thinking about playing video games as soon as you can.
Now I’m not saying that these are bad things. Social media can be a great tool for networking and learning.
However, you must understand that we only get 24 hours in a day. Time is the most valuable commodity there is in the world. We are all allotted the same amount of seconds in a day, and it is those of us who spend our time doing things that will help us achieve our aspirations that are most successful.
I’m going to leave you today with this parable:
“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up and it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up and it knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or the gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”
― Christopher McDougall
A “soft” person is someone who does not have goals and does not have an upward direction. Spend your time wisely and chase your dreams. Make sure you make time to do the things necessary to take the next step toward achieving your goals.
