tough choices

Tough choices.

I don’t think you can be succesful without making tough choices. It doesn’t mean you can’t make those tough choices quickly and easily, but it means that sacrifice often comes hand in hand with success.

I haven’t been moving up and down the West Coast for the past 7 years just to live in different climates.

I also didn’t work as a custodian in college to learn more about how my skin reacts to different chemicals.

I did however work as a security guard at a ZZ Top concert just to get a t-shirt that said “security” to wear to the gym.

Most times, I had to make tough choices. But I like that.  With tough choices come opportunities and with opportunities comes success.

So the next time you have to make a tough choice, dream a bit about what kind of opportunities might come because of it.

And if that doesn’t help, shoot me an email and I’ll let you borrow my security t-shirt.
