You’re Not Successful Because You’re Bored

“If you’re bored with life — you don’t wake up every morning with a burning desire to do things — you don’t have enough goals” — Lou Holtz

Remember when we were kids and we told our parents … “I’m bored”, in the whiniest of whiney voices? And they usually let it go, because … kids … but what happens when you get the same statement from someone you know has so much fucking potential you want to shake them silly? The minute you’re bored you ultimately think you have nothing to learn. The second you’re bored, you stop striving to better yourself. The moment you’re bored you stop pursuing dreams, because if you’re bored you don’t have the audacity to dream. So, if you’re wondering why you never got that promotion, or title, or accolade … it’s because you sat back, in safe land, not putting yourself out there to try and fail, picking yourself up to do it all over again … because at some point you were bored. Your parents, friends and employers aren’t the reason you’re not successful. You’re not successful because you’re bored, and you’re bored because you don’t have enough goals in life.

So do me a favor, if you’re a grown ass adult, stop complaining, because what you’re calling boredom, is actually laziness.
