Many of us have heard the term make it or break it, and many of us have thought to ourselves “That makes sense, you either do something, or you quit, and you break down”. However I don’t believe that is the true meaning behind that quote. See the real meaning behind that quote is, in my opinion, that you can make it, and then choose to stagnate, or you can break it, keep moving forwards and upwards, and continue to make yourself a better person, each and every single day of your life.
An exceptional amount of exceptional people out there are doing an exceptional job of not being exceptional.
Think about that for a moment.
Each and every person (including you) is exceptional in their own right. Maybe you are not the next NBA or NFL player, or the next NASA Scientist. Maybe you are not the next lotto winner, or the next TV/Movie Star… today.
See, out of all those things, only one is really up to chance. The rest, are yours for the taking, as long as you form the right habits, and spend the right amount of time doing the right amount of hard work. Unless something is legitimately left to chance, you can do it.
When you do finally make your dream come true, that is NOT the end of the line. Now you have a chance. A chance to break the boundaries, go outside the box, and break it. Break the rules, and take your dream to the next level. Some of us are living comfortable lives, some of us are overcoming a financial difficulty that life has thrown our way. Challenge yourself. If you are comfortable, then you need to study some more, get out of your comfort zone, break the edge do something great. If you are overcoming a burden in life, then you are headed in the right direction, keep climbing. Life is making you stronger, use your strength to help others, and use it to break the walls and overcome your self.
