Life’s an Adventure or Nothing at All
As Helen Keller said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
It’s absolutely true. But that doesn’t mean you have to be bad to have fun or do something crazy. You just need to live an exciting life.
How do you do that?
You excite other people!
“Whoever refreshes others will themselves be refreshed.” -Proverbs 11:25
Excite others and you will live an exciting life. How to go about it is for you to figure out, but you should be mindful that it should play a key part in providing excellence.
And, you don’t have to do anything epic. Do you want to live for the weekends? That’s fine. We know happiness is external, so as long as you include other people in your weekend adventures, there is nothing wrong with that.
But you do need that adventure. Don’t try to put in that 10,000 hours to get good at something, while having a boring life. That is no way to live.
So go find that adventure by helping someone else find theirs.
