It has been way too long for me to finally do this but someone deserves some recognition. She deserves way more credit than I give her. Chelsey is what I consider Super Human. Somehow she managed to graduate top of her class at Oregon Institute of Technology and also get the ‘Party-Smarty Pants’ Award. Some people are just gifted and driven. My sister is more than that. She is a freaking drunk! (Not Really) Actually my sister is rare in that she is so pure. I know only maybe 5 people in this world that I would say are completely good. My sister is one of them. Her heart is huge, and without a huge heart, life isn’t untapped.
Now I know who cares about Scott’s sister, well I think that everyone should learn from people like Chelsey. My sister has understood from an early age, that blaming others and trying to change other people doesn’t work. She has learned that the best way to improve her situation, is to become more. By focusing on herself, and what she needs to become instead of outside goals and objectives she grew into an amazing women. Now don’t get me wrong she asks way to many questions. Chelsey I’m sorry but no one cares about details more than you. That is okay because you’re worth any amount of questions (and irritation) because you are special.
How can you learn from people like Chelsey? STOP focusing on external forces, start focusing on your own internal forces. Realize that in order to get more, you have to become more. In order to change the situation, you have to change. Life has no welfare safety net. If you don’t take steps to get what you truly want out of life, than you are delaying your development and setting yourself up for disappointment. Look it isn’t about what your intentions are, I know we all intend to be financially free, happy, great family, great friends, live our passion, retire early. Guess What? That doesn’t happen without personal development, goal setting, mentors, action, self-education, consistently working hard everyday, continually recalibrating your goals and tracking your progress. You can never ever get to comfortable, continual growth is the key.
In my opinion depression is a result of an extended period of non-growth, because if you’re not growing you’re shrinking. That is the circle of life, and it holds true in your personal self. So do the right thing for yourself and the world by making yourself a better you. Your Life Opens up When You Open up Yourself.
