“My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that.”
This was said by the Queen of Hearts in Lewis Carroll’s book “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” If you’ve only watched the movie then SHAME ON YOU!! Hahaha it’s a genius novel that not only sparks your imagination, which I think is great because most of us tend to leave our imagination on the back burner after the age of 10, but it also gets your gears turning about your purpose in life and asking that big question of “who are you?”
Basically, good literature can be interpreted in a million ways. The way I read it is that the world is changing and it is moving at an incredible speed. If we want to be safe in our position in the world, we must constantly feed our brains to be as sharp as can possibly be. Whether that is referring to you keeping a position at your job, a good place in your relationship or getting steady grades, that is up to you.
HOWEVER, if we want to succeed, reach your highest possible goals… Then you must double that effort. Push yourself to your absolute limits and further, give it everything you’ve got, be out of breath, no sleep, no eating, shift into the 5th gear and you’ll get there.
That is what this blog is about! Get you thinking so that we can all keep our brains sharp and useful.
This quote is inspiration for determination and I absolutely love it.
