You start out life with nothing, and you end it the same way.
But between the start and the finish, you can have an awesome
If you are going to live, you may as well live as if you are a great
person. That means, you live as if your dreams are possible
and work each day to make them happen. You travel far, travel
light, and make your life into what you want it to be. You
never forget that life isn't about stuff; instead, it's about living
As you face problems each
day, ask yourself, "How would I handle this challenge if I was a
great person?" After you answer that question, go ahead
and do what a great person would do.
Don't tiptoe through life
trying to just get by. Instead, make your life into something
memorable, something great.
You only get one life, and you may as well make it into a great one.
You have little to lose and much to gain, so go ahead and live as if
you are great.
This photo shows me living my sand dreams on a
nine day off-road trip in the Rhub al-Khali. My fully-loaded
Defender is sliding down a slip face in the Southern Empty Quarter
of Arabia. These sandy corridors can be hundreds of kilometers
long and you can spend weeks driving in a sea of sand.
If you want to live as if you are a great person, you must first
decide what greatness means to you.
The path to greatness is littered with the corpses of the famous,
the wealthy, and the powerful.
Fame, money, and power have nothing to do with greatness. They
are simply stumbling blocks, imposters, that try to trip you
up on your journey to being great.
Greatness happens to those
who live their dreams with single-minded purpose. Courage and
integrity form the cornerstones of their lives. When they face
temptations, they are unmovable, and when they face challenges, they
are unstoppable. They stick with you through thick and thin,
and no matter what happens, they keep the faith.
Great people live as if
their dreams are possible and work each day to make them
happen. They know who they are, and they know where they are
going. They are Unstoppable, Consistently Positive, Endlessly
Persistent, Doers of Dreams.
