Graduates: The Danger of Playing it Safe

What are you going to do with your one and only life?

You get one shot. It’s gonna fly by…just ask your parents.

How you decide to spend your life starts today. And, every day. I implore you to make a life, not just a living.

Truth is, your work takes up most of your time. Thus, you’ll need to ask yourself, “Am I excited about my day ahead? Do my gifts and passions line up with what I’m producing?”

If not, stop. Not necessarily cold turkey, but start planning an exit and find or create a new endeavor.

You might disappoint or worry your parents. Others may roll their eyes. But, this is YOUR life, not theirs.

The regrets of the aged are opportunities missed, ventures not attempted. Your mistakes and failures? You won’t even remember them. Trust me.

Go create your future and never (ever!) play it safe. (139 words)

  1. Thanks Brett! I’d say this applies to everyone!

    • Thanks, Allison! I agree. And, I need to remind myself of this every few days. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by the nest, sure love and appreciate you!

      • NevidÄ›l bych problém v demokracii, spíše v novinářích, kteří místo aby realitu popisovali, tak ji chtÄ›jí vytvářet. Vůbec styl psaní informací s pÅ™imíchávaným de facto komentářem mi pÅ™ipadá hloupý, zvláštÄ› když pro komentáře mají vÅ¡echny noviny svoji rubriku.
