Whos job is it?

This is a story about four people named everybody, somebody, anybody and nobody.

 

There was an important job to be done and everybody was sure somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was everybody’s job. Everybody thought anybody could do it but nobody realized that everybody wouldn’t do it.

 

It ended up that everybody blamed somebody when nobody did what anybody could have done.

And the moral of the story? Just do it!

Bruce Lee Week #6: Create your world

To hell with circumstances, I create opportunities.

Bruce Lee

There are a lot of things that can not be controlled. Life will put you in situations that you do not like at all. But although you can not control those situations, you can control your reactions to them.

How you react to situations and given circumstances defines what you can make out of them. You can turn a bad situation into a good opportunity. Having a flat tire? Great, you will learn how to change a tire! Your usual bus route is cancelled due to whatever reason? Awesome, time to learn a new route.

Okay, those examples are pretty mundane, but you get the point. It is about you feel and react towards what life throws at you that makes you happy or not. It is very important to realise that there is a lot out of your control and to just let it go. That’s just how it is, so don’t worry and make the best out of it.

Also, don’t wait for right moments all the time. Often, there is no right time. The right time is an imaginary moment you created in order to prolong decisions and bold actions. Create the right moment by acting!

Give your best!

If you want the best the world has to offer, offer the world your best.

Inspiration does not suddenly appear, it has to be created. Action creates inspiration. Start getting active and you will be pleasantly suprised.
