You Have To Care.

You have to care. That’s the only way you’re going to see progress.

That’s the only way you’re going to break past the obstacles holding you back right now.

It seems like not caring is easier. Like you won’t get hurt. Or disappointed when things don’t work out.

But that’s just false hope.

The hard truth about battle is that how hard you care about the outcome determines how long you’re willing to keep fighting to get that outcome.

Care is passion and stamina, creativity, insight and resilience.

It’s the seed kernel from which all of those elements first begin.

In truth, you already care about something.

Maybe it is how you appear to others.

Maybe it is how much money you can acquire. Maybe it is just to get through another day.

You’re not care-free. But you probably care less than you should about the right thing.

You might need to adjust your priorities.

You might need to get serious about that thing you’ve been saying you want to achieve but haven’t put in enough time or effort or care.
