“A man who procrastinates in his CHOOSING will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance. So if you now number yourself among the disenchanted, then you have no choice but to accept things as they are, or to seriously seek something else. But beware of looking for goals: look for a way of life. Decide how you want to live and then see what you can do to make a living WITHIN that way of life. But you say, ‘I don’t know where to look; I don’t know what to look for.’
And there’s the crux. Is it worth giving up what I have to look for something better? I don’t know—is it? Who can make that decision but you? But even by DECIDING TO LOOK, you go a long way toward making the choice.” ~ Hunter S. Thompson

“A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.” ~ Sir Francis Bacon
“We are not creatures of circumstance; we are creators of circumstance.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli
“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them. ” ~ George Bernard Shaw
Stop waiting for things to happen.
Go out and make them happen.
“The ONLY thing leaders have in common is the shared decision to lead.” ~ Seth Godin, Tribes
