Progress is almost always a series of choices, an inexorable move toward mediocrity, or its opposite.
Each day contains in it opportunities for progress OR mediocrity.
In each opportunity there is a choice. Sometimes it is simply choosing how to view a situation. And sometimes it is choosing between the lesser of two evils.
Other times it is choosing to do the work.
But do not complain and give things outside of yourself credit for not being where you want to be.
It’s on you TO DO the things to allow yourself to succeed.
YOU ARE EXACTLY WHERE YOU WANT TO BE AND HAVE CHOSEN TO BE.
Now what are you going to do to change that?
