I am going to do something I rarely ever do in the written word: curse.
Well, here goes nothing.
To be blunt, I cannot stand shit talkers. And no, I don’t mean people who talk bad about someone else (although that’s a toxic trait I try to avoid).
I am talking about those who say they are going to do something and never follow through with it.
How many times have you heard yourself, or someone else say that they plan to: travel, quit their job, start project x y and z, learn a new language, start exercising, but never take that first step?
I once had someone who barely knew me accuse me of being a shit talker, because I had one project go awry.
Little did they know of the other 10 projects I currently had going on in my life, but I digress.
The point is, I want to see everyone I know chase after his or her dreams. But everything worth doing requires that you take action.
You can talk all you want, but it will be all for naught if you don’t put one foot in front of the other.
I’d rather see the ones I care about fail in their attempt to try, than never try at all.
