The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself. -Mark Caine
I’m back in North America and I find myself trying to define my own success. I’ve made goals for myself and I have reached some while I’ve missed the mark on others. But I think if there is one thing that I’ve learnt, it would be the act of refusal, which means not accepting the way things in your life if you are unhappy. I’ve learnt to NOT make excuses. Not only do you keep your standards low, you also do not improve your own well-being. Without progression, there is no development, and you become a captive in your own world.
Don’t be a captive, be the driver in your life and make it happen!
