I have learnt a lot in life just being a good listener. Being watchful I have seen a lot of things way beyond the human reasonable imagination. I bet you have experienced things not even seen in the wildest movies...
Being slow to reaction is detrimental in many ways to movement speed but in the long run most time a blessing for me. Sometimes the challenges you're facing are just protecting you from some evil lurking by you can't naturally see. Don't be lazy but never you force it or be in a rush. Do not compare yourself to anybody but always concentrate on getting the best out of you.
Many people play themselves out trying to run faster than their required pace. I have seen some so called losers finally making it super big. From wherever you are right now, you can make it happen. Starting with what you have right now you can get whatever you want. Just stop wasting quality time looking away and start driving yourself from your inside. Let's have a great week being the best we can be for our goals.
