Regrets and Inaction

The 3rd month of the year is coming and your age is increasing. Thank God you're still alive that He gives you another day to make your life better and for you to prepare a good one for those you love. If there's another tomorrow, that would be good. But if none, hope that you have done what you've been planning to do because saying that you want to do something doesn't equate to actually doing it. These are opposite sides of a coin.
Having great intentions is good. But results come only to those who take actions. Having fear is understandable. But using fear as an excuse is cowardice and irresponsibility. Decide, act and move. It might be uncomfortable at first. But getting used to discomfort is part of it and once results fall into your lap, you'll realize that everything is worth it. And the only thing that you'll regret is that you did not start earlier.

How's Your Hand?

Even with the best hand, if you don't understand the rules of the game, you can still lose. Someone might look poised to succeed in life with his educational background, a good job and great health but if his mentality and actions do not maximize these advantages, failure is inevitable. We always seemed surprised to hear people succeeding out of no where. But if we look closely, a lot of those who reach the top are the ones who started out from the bottom yet hustle their way up against the odds.

Remember that the person who is more likely to succeed is not always the one who's dealt with the best hands in life but it is he who strategizes his way up no matter how bad the set of cards are being dealt against him.
