The harsh reality is nobody’s coming to save you.

The job that you want, the thing that you desire, the feeling that you get, nobody’s gonna get that for you.

You need to be the one to go get it for yourself.

While yes, you got friends, you got guidance, you got books.

Resources, peers, mentors, and everybody can root for you to achieve the goal that you desire.

If you have that, GREAT! Keep it and cherish it.

But it’s really up to you to be the one to go get it!

What would it look like if you stop waiting, stop wanting and wishing that whatever it is that you want’s just gonna fall in your lap?

Decide that now will be the time where you take action and go get it.

Get it for yourself because when you do, you can show others they can go get it too.

Rooting for ya! Let me know what moves you plan on making
