"In the end…We only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have,
and the decisions we waited too long to make.”
As we were catching up on auditions from American Idol last night, the quote above came up at the start of one of the segments. It's a little bizarre to get something out of American Idol beyond entertainment, but the quote haunted me enough that the first thing I did when I got up this morning was a Google search to find it.
It was amazing how many great quotes came from Alice, White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat. So many of us have at some point in our careers been afraid to go down the rabbit hole and wasted time over-analyzing which path to take next.
It's a short post with one single point. If we all make 2016 a year of taking chances, building relationships and speed up our decision-making, think about how strong a year it will become.
Stop chasing success! There is no success fairy only hard work, dedication, and passion. Stay focused on your dreams and stop thinking so many of the challenges seem impossible.
