It’s not that you traveled the world but that you took the first step.
It’s not that you started a revolution but that you voiced your concern.
It’s not that you cured world hunger, but you gave some food to the needy.
It’s not that you brought about world peace, but you smiled and helped a stranger.
It’s not that you created a masterpiece but that you created something.
It’s not that you cured sadness but that you made someone smile.
It’s not that you achieved your life mission but that you reached a small goal.
It’s not that you got that girls number but that you smiled and said hi.
It’s not that you changed someone’s life but that you offered your guidance.
It’s not that you started your dream business but that you laid out the plan.
It’s not that you got that 6 pack abs but that you at least quit fries and joined the gym.
It’s not that you achieved your dream life but that you envisioned what it would be.
Most of the goals or plans are meaningless without effort. Success is uncertain. What matters though is the effort we put. Failure can be forgiven. Because well, at least we tried. What can’t be forgiven is not putting in the effort. Because Effort is in our hands. And effort is fucking sexy.
