According to J. P. Morgan, “The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.”

If you like where you are, stay there. If you don’t like where you are, leave. But if you can’t leave, make it better. If you can’t make it better, create your own self.

Are you going to stay where you are?

You Cannot Be All Things To All People

Hermann Hesse famously said, “A man cannot live intensely except at the cost of the self.” You cannot live your life on the road. You need to rest. Take time to reconnect with yourself. You need it. The world will continue without you. Your work will continue without you. If you want to enjoy yourself, you must stop running. You must stop being all things to all people.

Life is precious. Don’t abuse your life. You are here to live, not to exist. Until you take care of yourself, you will never have the chance to enjoy your life.
