Are you aware quotes are dangerous?

Anyone ever said to you, “Watch out, quotes are dangerous”?

No, right?

Same here.

And then yesterday, an epiphany.

The reason quotes are dangerous is that they postpone action.

Quotes makes us feel good. Inspired even.

And this inspirational feel-good feeling masks the pain of not moving forward with our dream.

Quotes are intended to be a call to action, but we spend a lifetime squandering our efforts in exchange for short term pleasure – a pressure release so to speak from all our fear and self-doubt.

Magic happened when i began thinking for myself, and stopped using quotes as a shot of whiskey to dull the anxiety of my unlived dreams.
