Good things come to those who wait has to be one of the biggest lies you tell to yourself, to your friends, to your kids. It’s what you also have been told since you were a little kid. That’s one of the things you heard so many times that you know it’s true even if you have never given it some proper consideration.
But if you think about it for a second you will see how far from the truth it really is. If good things come to those who wait, then get some food, some water, close the door and sit in your room until they do. Or you can go to work and do nothing all day and wait for the position, salary and benefits you dream of.
Now we all know this is not going to happen. You have to step up, show up, make commitments, deliver, fail, try again, work harder, work smarter, be more creative. These are the things you need to do and then the good things you were waiting for will come. Stop waiting and start making those good things come to you, otherwise you will be waiting for a long, long time.
Good things come to those who act.
