Take a deep breath before the next difficult step.

Take a deep breath, then make your move. If you don’t, you’ll never succeed, guaranteed.

Wake up in Rome… CHECK

Running in foreign cities at 5 am might not be your thing, but find out what is ‘your thing.’ Find out your best way to gain a new perspective, start doing it whenever and wherever possible. 

Some days the best solution is to just go for a nice bike ride.

Get your head on straight today, take a break, and prepare your mind to hit the ground running tomorrow. You’ll thank yourself. 

Improving the future requires diligent study of the past.

Maybe take the high-speed internet, and put it to better use than streaming Game of Thrones and Cat Videos on YouTube. 

Don’t let the lack of bridges be your excuse.

Don’t let the lack of bridged be your excuse, get on that raft and paddle for all your worth, paddle across that river before your opportunity passes and never comes again. 

Never let go of the curiosity, never become too busy to chase down wonder and explore new places.

The day we don’t have enough time to, slow down and contemplate life, explore something new, try something for the first time, or just chat with a new friend, is the same day we lose a lot of what actually matters in life. 

Wisdom is built solidly on a foundation of learning from mistakes and experience.

Embrace life’s experiences, the good and the bad, let them teach you what you need to be prepared and realize that all of those skills are the irreplaceable foundation of wisdom. 

Journeys are not always comfortable, glamorous, or even all that fun.

Sure the drive up on a nice road is convenient, but getting there the slow way, the better way, the “one step at a time” approach is always the best.

Some paths are cold, rainy, muddy, and just freaking wonderful.

If you always take the paved sidewalk, you won’t get dirty, but you won’t find the real adventures, you won’t get to experience all this life really has to offer.

You’re not always going to do things perfectly;  consistent, purposeful effort will put you at an advantage over everyone else.

Most give up before they start, and if they do start, they give up when it gets hard. Brother, it gets hard early on in the journey, and it stays hard for a long time.
