Often I get tagged as an arrogant guy! I know there are people in my circle and in my world that think I think a lot of myself. I will admit that I am proud of my accomplishments, I am proud of my abilities, I am proud of the people I know and the places I have seen and the people I have helped. I truly believe that even with all that I have and have done, I have not scratched the surface of my potential. I live a good life and am constantly working towards my goals and dreams. Everyday I do something that gets me closer to what I want and where I want to be in life. I do not think I am arrogant because I know my place, I know that everyday could be my last.. I respect the time I have been given and use it to achieve for myself, my family and others.
I find the truly arrogant... are the people I meet that believe they can put things off, do tomorrow what they should do today. I define arrogance as believing you will have another day, when nothing is guaranteed. There are no writings that say how many days you have left to accomplish what you can to reach your potential, there is no way of knowing when you will tell your loved ones... you love them for the last time.
It is a sad truth that thousands of people die everyday... some die instantly...many get a chance to reflect on their lives and regret all the things they didn't do. Many get chance to think about unfulfilled goals, dreams and desires. Many live long enough, on their death bed, to wish they'd have taken the risk, gambled a little more, loved a little more, expressed themselves a little more, had more of a "go for it" attitude. Anthony Robbins once said, "there are thousands of people in hospitals all around the world right now that wished they had your problems" I believe that is a truth.
Arrogance is not about being boastful or braggadocios... arrogance is wasting the time you have been given because you feel you will have more, feel you deserve more time. Tomorrow is not a guarantee so what will you do today...what will you do now to live... really live your ideal life. Make a move forward... discover that you have the ability to achieve, to break through perceived barriers, to surpass fears and have it all. Please "go for it" and have no regrets when your time comes.
