“History doesn’t choose individual people.

History chooses everyone.

 

Every day.

 

The only question is: How long will you ignore the call?”

How to succeed: Try hard enough.

How to fail: Try too hard.

===================

 

what are you going to do i do not know

 

Some people choose to not just be bystanders.

 

Some people choose to be tryers.

 

Some people treat personal liberty with incredible care and responsibility.

 

 

Some people love the depth & breadth of the imagination and, yet, retain a healthy skepticism toward what they love & dream about.

 

 

Some people embrace personal freedom and, yet, permit limits and responsibilities to steward the freedom.

 

 

Some people can become captivated with the beauty of Life and dreams and following passions and, yet, understand the demands of reality are more pressing than anything that is simply captivating.

 

 

Some people are brave … and bold … and, yet, refuse to be stupid about it.

 

Some people seek the extraordinary and, yet, understand they are simply being asked to take advantage of the ordinary found available to any and all.

“And while I’d like to lay claim to some extraordinary act of originality, truth is I’m only taking advantage of capabilities inherent in everyone.”

============

 

 

Some people not only hear the call of history … they also answer the call.

 

Some people think about doing … and some people actually do.

 

 

Some people understand that we all have multiple lives within us and, yet, decide to live one life well.

 

 

Well.

 

At some point you need to decide what type of person you want to be.choice is yours arrows direction

 

Some of that type of person or some of the other type of person.

 

To be a bystander or be a tryer.

 

All I can really suggest is … well … get caught trying to be a type of person.
