We are taught our whole lives to be passive. We get to school, the bell rings, and so we sit down and shut up. We start our first job, we're told what to do, and so we do it.
Somewhere after childhood, creativity, imagination, and playtime get stifled and traded in for adulthood, serious decisions, and a lack of time.
Even when we take a journey well into entrepreneurship for many years, that passivity can still be activated. The overwhelm instigated. It's a trait that's been reinforced for most of our lives.
This puts most people into a subconscious state of not doing a damn thing to change their life, improve their business, or increase their financial wellbeing. They get to a place where they're "comfortable," (albeit maybe not happy or rich) and so they hang out for a while. After all, that IS what they've been taught to do.
But then, then there's those who take action. They're constantly seeking greatness. They always desire to be better. They know that it's mastery over their emotions (like fear) that gets them engaged to do more, be more, and rise higher. They honor that they cannot do it alone.
Instead of trading their time for dollars, they invest in themselves and that next stage of their success. Investing in their success stops being a question and it starts being a habit.
They are "the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
