don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

“If you can breathe, there is still time to save your life”. Fair enough, this quote comes from a morbidly obese man who is battling to lose weight in order to survive, but it would it hurt for the rest of us to adopt the same principle? 

In today’s society, it is easy to feel as though we are the ones missing out; we don’t go out enough, we don’t earn enough, we don’t have sex enough, we don’t travel enough – how can we ever reach our full capability when there is always someone else who is doing everything better? 


I’ve said it before and I will say it again; success is in the eye of the beholder, and no one can make your own success but you. It is scary being young in the 21st century, but it is also amazing. We can see the world, we can earn more money than any generation before us and the only reason that we feel we aren’t doing so is because of celebrity culture and social media which leads us to compare the richness of our own lives to those of other people. 

If there is something about your life that you aren’t happy with, you can and should change it. Take a long-shot, what does it matter? If it fails then you haven’t lost anything, but if it succeeds then it could be the best decision you have ever made. Diligence is key and hard-work will pay off. The fact of the matter is, no one gets anything for nothing. Get yourselves noticed, work hard and remember that no matter how old you are or what your situation, you don’t need a miracle, you just need commitment and the determination to pull it off.
