Develop Your Sense of Urgency

When you were very hungry, were you thinking of fasting?

When you were very tired, were you thinking of resting? Of sleeping?

When unpaid bills were mounting, did you call a friend?

When you heard that your father has a lung cancer, stage 4, did you not drop what you were doing?

When something is urgent, although you lack resources, although time isn’t enough, although no one supports you, when you really want it, when you cannot accept not having it, you will do everything you can.

I have seen people who did something short of miracles when life is on the line.

To change life, you need more than theories.

Theories are nice to know. But unless you do something about theories, they are as important as a stinking dead rat.
