“Have a very good reason for everything you do.” ~ Laurence Olivier
Whatever you do, be sure you are doing it for a reason. If you have no reason for doing anything, no matter what it takes, don’t do it. A purposeless venture is at all times a worthless venture. The question is, why waste time, energy and resources doing things you shouldn’t be doing? There is neither a gain nor any form of satisfaction from doing purposeless things. If you have a fixed intention in doing something, there is a goal to be met. With it, you can measure your progress, gauge and adjust your direction as you go along. Doing so will enable you to know when you’ve achieved your aim. Achieving your aim is elating and satisfying at all times. Without a purpose, many people simply drift through life without achieving anything or making any impact whatsoever in whatever environment they happen to find themselves. That is sadly pathetic but true.
Somehow, people with goals to aim at always manage to succeed faster and better than others because they always know where they're going. They have real reasons for doing what they do and they as a reward get more and better results. If you love challenges like I do, you’ll discover that the reasons you have for doing what you are doing constitute the challenges you face. It is the same reasons which help you to continue to strive on no matter the odds! With set goals in mind, if rewarding enough, you kind of stay the course until you achieve. Without set goals, it is doubtful if anyone can ever get anything worthwhile achieved satisfactorily.
Get busy right now because…. “No pains, no gains. To get the prize, you must pay the price.”
