Access Point <Strive For - OR - Settle For?>
“Without a plan, and intentional effort, we must learn to settle for whatever we get.”
- James K. McPartland
While most things in life do not proceed as planned, they do not go anywhere without a plan. Unless we take measurable action for our plan, we must accept the result of our efforts. Much like the misunderstanding in the law of attraction illustrates, if we sit on the couch and only think about what we want in life, someone will come and take the couch and all of our other furniture away. A simple formula for success lies in the "until principle." This rule states that we must continue, push on, act, rebound, and persevere with resilience toward our intended result. This commitment propels us forward "until" we achieve what we are pursuing. While what we get might be important, who we become is far more important as it is a result that can never be taken from us.
