Your time matters! .
Passionate driven people do things differently. Passionate and driven people get excited, fired up, put time towards their goals and dreams, and think positively about the future. They're also willing to take calculated risk towards achieving the desired end result. They don't back down, and they tend to have unbelievable razor like focus. .
For me being driven and passionate are kind of part of who I am. Sure I may take my time making a commitment or coming to a decision but once I do I'm all in. .
I do believe there is truth to who you choose to spend your time with impacting your life. When you're around people who are chasing down their ambitions you can't help but to feel inspired to go after your own. .
On the flip side of that when you're around people who feel lackluster about life... well you feel this too. For me this makes it harder for me to quiet my fears and doubts. The doubts and fears would like me to be satisfied with my status quo. .
Why would you be willing to settle for satisfactory for great or even AWESOME? .
I know that I'm not everyone's cup of tea so to speak. I tend to be upfront and pretty direct. That's how I grew up. I was taught knowledge is power and you need it to make informed sound decisions. .
I've learned that passionate driven people are not put off by a strong vibe and someone's drive. In fact it's almost this unspoken understanding that if you're not passionate about something in the beginning you're probably not going to stick with it. An understanding that there is no passion in playing it small- in settling for a life less than the one you're living. .
I don't think you owe anyone an apology for who you choose to spend your time with. Being selective with your time is smart. Time is the one thing we never seem to have enough of so spending it wisely matters. .
I like fun loving, motivated, "messy" people; people who don't fit in any box or stay between the lines. But whose passion, integrity, and loyalty goes beyond any "rule book". .
