You Might Like You When You’re Angry.

Nothing positive will change in your life until you get angry about where you are right now — angry and motivated. Anger can be a dangerous weapon.

It can burn you up and burn you out while you fight for revenge against the injustices being done to you.

But anger can also empower you to rise above mediocrity and achieve goals you might not have otherwise thought possible.

Instead of letting scary situations leave you disheartened and discouraged, get angry about it.

Don’t sit down. Stand up. Fight. Make a plan.

Get help. Be relentless about what you want to achieve.

The truth is that you’re going to be angry anyways. So use that anger to get you to where you want to be.

The alternative is to be indifferent. Apathetic. To pretend like nothing bothers you.

See how far that gets you. Nowhere.

Better to burn out than never to have burned at all.
