Quotes, Notes, and Women #52 - Helen KellersteemCreated with Sketch.

The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.
-Helen Keller

We all take sight and hearing for granted. With neither sight nor hearing, Helen Keller accomplished more than you or me.

You have a RESPONSIBILITY to have goals and work every day towards achieving them.

Why? People with impairments like Helen Keller would kill to have what you have.

The man with no legs would kill to run again. The woman with no tongue would kill to speak again. The person with no memory would kill to remember their family.

They would kill to be average, and you won’t even work to be great?

If you’re going to sit on your ass all day, at least spend the time to create a vision for your life.

Who do you want to be? Who do you want to benefit? What lifestyle do you want to live?

Then break it down again:

How do you gain more confidence? How do you bring benefit to those lives? How do you get to the point where you can live like a digital nomad?

Goals. Get up and achieve them.

Or, pray for a way to give your abilities to someone else that has goals. They probably want it more than you anyway.

Until next time,
