“I want to make something absolutely clear… If you thought there was some working group coming to the rescue, I want you to know that you’re wrong.
This is it.
There’s nobody else hidden away on some other floor.
There is just us.”
That quote from the Zero Dark Thirty trailer caught my attention.
So often, we hold out, waiting for our savior to come. That savior wears many different masks, but often dances through our fantasies like this:
Someday I’ll win the lottery.
Someday I’ll meet the woman/man of my dreams.
Someday I’ll make it big.
Someday I’ll get in shape.
I just need to read that book/sign up for that course and my life will change.
When I work with that coach, I’ll be more disciplined.
I’ll hire that trainer and then I’ll get healthy.
In the three main categories of life (health, wealth and relationships), what are you holding out for? What’s your magic pill that will solve all of your problems?
Even with the people you know, the resources you’ve got and whatever higher power you believe in, it’s still your job to take control of your life, your experiences, and your purpose. 100%. No ifs, ands or buts.
There’s nobody else hidden away to run your life for you. No one is coming to the rescue.
It’s just you.
