Each night let us ask: Did we spend today being ourselves, expressing our true voice and sincere feelings and innate power? Did we spend the vast majority of the day doing meaningful activities rather than being slave to distraction or useless endeavor? Life has a way of being easily torn from us day by day. We forget what we want and get distracted. We do what others tell us to do. We say yes to so many things that we end up with no time to do the things that matter to us. But freedom and greatness belong to those who master their day. [...] We are one or the other: the striver with the Spear of Purpose or the distracted straggler with the excuse. Which will be our reality? from Declaration II in THE MOTIVATION MANIFESTO by Brendon Burchard - Live. Love. Matter.
