Susan’s Sound Advice #1171

I had the honor of receiving an award from the wonderfully talented John Shumate, editor of Vicissitude Magazine. While receiving the award, I gave this speech which I think is a great motivator to start your week: “The other day I was in a building with a multi-level parking garage. As I entered, I realized that the first level was packed with cars. I continued to ascend to the next level and that too was packed. Instead of searching for that hard-to-find parking spot, I decided to climb all the way to the top level where, not surprisingly, I had every spot to myself. It got me thinking that this is a metaphor for life. Why climb to the top, which takes more effort, when you can just park at the bottom with everyone else? Yes, I had to walk a little further to get to the street, but it was great exercise! We must remember this: To create a life of accomplishment and success, you have to ditch the laziness and embrace the necessary hard work. Athletes, actors, and musicians are all over the media and they get paid a lot of money. But what we don’t see are the thousands of hours of super-focused work these people have put in behind the scenes. So, from now on, instead of taking the easy route, look to add more effort into your life. This is how you grow, this is how you succeed, and this is what living is all about!” #susankorwin
