My girlfriend is dating one of those undateable guys. The no job, no car, going to be a millionaire one day, you need to check out my abs kind of guy. He keeps talking about what he is going to do one day. Except if you looked at his life five years ago, it looks just like right now. When we talk she admits she has reservations but he keeps saying what she wants to hear. All the while she has to pick him up and pay for the dates. THAT’S another topic for another day.
We talked again last week and I asked her if I could blog about her. She laughed and agreed.
Potential is one of those things that can trip us up. You can see it but it doesn’t mean the person who has it will ever play it out.
The key here is to know who you are and know what you want because if you aren’t clear you’ll make unhealthy decisions that will wreck your life and you’ll ask yourself one day, “How did I get here?”
When I think about it, this advice goes for any decision in your life.
Do you have goals?
Do you have vision?
Are the things you are doing today leading towards or away from those goals?
