People always ask me "Why do you do what you do?" The answer's easy - and it's not because of the money (although I do believe the money will come). I do what I do, because making a difference in someone's life by teaching and empowering them to reach their full potential is my passion - it is my dream.
How about you? Are you pursuing your dream - your passion? Or are you just putting in time at a job that pays the bills?
Do you think that chasing your dreams is just fanciful idealogy? Do you think "It'll have to wait for the next time around?"
I've got some bad news - there may not be another "time around". This may be all you get. And its a tough reality to face - but it may not last as long as you wished hope it would.
So you have a choice. You can either, live your life, content with having a good life, where you go to a job you don't hate, and pay your bills on time - knowing someday you'll get to retire. Or you could take a chance and commit making your dream a reality - making it happen, while risking the chance of completely failing - and maybe losing everything you currently have.
The choice is obvious to me. Greatness is born from risk not safety. Take a chance and go for "Great".
