Get your head out of the clouds. Life isn’t hypothetical. It’s not hyperbole. It’s painful and sad and gritty at times. Along the way you are guaranteed to lose time and friends and money. Sometimes self-respect, dignity, and courage. Get serious about your future.
Each time something unexpected or unfortunate comes across your way, you are forced to decide whether you are going to continue to execute your plan or whether you’re going to be distracted, depressed, and discouraged by what life does naturally — create chaos.
