“Do not let circumstances control you. You change your circumstances.” – Jackie Chan
If you let circumstances control your life you’ll never have enough. You won’t have enough resources, help or money to make any of your dreams come true.
But the most successful people in the world understand they are in control, not their circumstances. Never let your current circumstance be the reasons you don’t reach your full potential.
Choose to believe in yourself and give yourself a chance. You can change it!
“The ads all call me fearless, but that’s just publicity. Anyone who thinks I’m not scared out of my mind whenever I do one of my stunts is crazier than I am.” – Jackie Chan
It’s so easy to see people doing their work at elite levels and think they aren’t scared, nervous or terrified. Athletes, actors, and even professional speakers still get nervous and scared.
Remember, it’s okay to feel fear, just don’t let it hold you back. You only get one shot at life, don’t let fear run your dreams into the ground.
“If one does not attach himself to people and desires, never shall his heart be broken. But then, does he ever truly live?” – Jackie Chan
Playing it safe is easy. But if you slog through life “getting by” are you ever really living?
Don’t be afraid to play big. Fail more, fail bigger.
Life is meant for living, not walking around cautiously, scared, and timid. Take calculated risks on yourself to create a better future.
