Looking for…

Whatever you are looking for, stop waiting. Start doing. The weekend will pass away as did the week.

There is this magical power in doing the right thing, that you feel immensely powerful and fulfilled. Nothing, no procrastination, no excuses and no “valid reasons” could ever replace what gets done.

Like Theodore Roosevelt rightly said:

“It is not the critic who counts;

not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,

or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,

whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;

who strives valiantly;

who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;

but who does actually strive to do the deeds;

who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;

who spends himself in a worthy cause;

who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,

so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

If you could do a small favour to yourself today, so be it. Stop waiting and start daring greatly.
