Be unreasonable with what you want for your life.
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man” George Bernard Shaw
Who owns your life? Your parents? Your current boss? The model of what your life is “supposed” to be like based on the perspective of your friends or family who aren’t even fulfilled with theirs?
No – only you own your life. Your life is your own unique work of art. What do YOU want to create? Who do YOU want to be? What do YOU want to do?
Why not be unreasonable with what you want? What I mean by unreasonable is that why don’t you dream, and pursue an original life, one that is unique to you, one that is special to you.
The only reason that you wouldn’t is if you are scared. If you are scared of failure you will conform to the safe path, but this path isn’t fulfilling. If you are scared of criticism you will never get out there and risk.
No great achievement comes without risk. In our hearts we know this.
Building a fantastic business where you have freedom and fulfillment, and one that adds value to others is hard. It takes effort, you can’t comprise, you have to fight through discouragement, failure, trials and criticism. At times you have to be unreasonable with what you want when people question your vision or your ability to pull if off.
However the people who create great things in life are unreasonable. They know exactly what they want, and they are unreasonable until they get it. They don’t let the opinions of others sway them from what they see in their minds. They make their vision a reality through their actions.
Be unreasonable. Don’t settle. Don’t comprise.
