What you do now will affect your future down the road. You need to ask yourself, what is it you want in your life? What are you working towards, and searching for? If you have an idea and a plan figured out, well that’s awesome and your probably farther than most people. I’m not saying other people aren’t working hard or trying to figure it out. Unfortunately, we just all go at different speeds and are on different paths. That’s life, we are all traveling and going different directions.
In my young and immature years, I always had one eye on the horizon and my future. Daydreaming about what I will be doing in a few years? I had an idea and always pictured somehow and someway I will have an impact on people. I was going to do something positive with myself and have an impact somehow. Maybe I won’t be a household name or be the best-selling author, and sell a million copies of my books. Even with all my drama, I had and hatred and battles I went through with myself. I never stopped believing.
Peter Vs Fred
The issues and drama I had over the years were always me vs me. Peter vs Fred. Well, Fred had my number for years. I kept thinking and trying to picture what my future might be down the road. I didn’t have a work ethic and or really had a plan. In sports, I worked hard and tried to do my best. Well at the time what seemed like my best. It wasn’t, I could have done more. I could have done better and tried harder, and given that extra effort in practice and those sprints.
That’s life you live and you learn every day. To this day and through the last seven years, I still don’t know what my future holds. Even though I know who holds my future, that’s no reason why I shouldn’t give that extra effort. Even though I’m a Christian, and believe everything happens for a reason. I still must put in the effort and try my best every day. I know that now, and sometimes we must learn the hard way in life.
It’s all clear to me now, If I want something then I must keep working on it and don’t stop. The last few years have been the definition of tunnel vision for me. All I have been focused on and picturing and dreaming about every day are my ultimate goals. Publishing my books and sharing my story and what I have learned with the world. There is nothing else on my radar for me. I have a social life every once and awhile when I feel like it.
Where I am right now in my life, I don’t have any more time to waste. I’ll be 28 soon and as harsh as it may sound, nothing to show with my life. Some people might disagree with that, they can disagree all they want. But I know the truth, I haven’t done anything with my life so far.
That’s why I have been so focused on my books and trying to build something. There are thousands, millions of people and kids just like me. I know people have had harder lives and bigger struggles than me, I won’t disagree with that. We all have a story and were all unique and different in our own way. I just recognized my life and where I am in life. After all this time I just decided to start doing something about it.
I Like Vanilla
All I do is work my two jobs, work on my website and books and workout. Every once and while I’ll hang out with my friends, and of course my family. Besides that, my life is kind of vanilla and boring. I know these years should be the best years of my life, but I don’t care.
Right now I’m trying to build something and be a part of something that’s bigger than Peter Harrower. I’m just one person and one story in the world. I’m just trying to share what I learned and trying to share my experiences with the world. Honestly, I could care less about my 20’s right now, I’m not wishing for these years away or anything like that.
We only get one chance at life, one shot to live. I don’t want to waste any more years like I did in my past. I have learned from my past and through all of those struggles, it helped turn me into the person I am today. I’m not perfect, I’m still learning and trying to take it one day at a time. I’m trying to make this one life worthwhile and have it be the best life I can have.
What Will You Sacrifice
In the end, I’m trying to have my life be a vacation every day. I don’t want to be stuck in a 9-5 every day. Look back after 20 years, and see how miserable I am. I would rather die than do that. That’s why I’m different, and why I and all of us should look at life differently.
What you do now will affect your future. It doesn’t matter if you have big goals or small goals, well we all should have big goals in our life. Until the day I die, I will always keep one eye on the horizon and never lose sight of what matters. But the facts speak for themselves if you want a better life it doesn’t matter what you’re doing. You must put in the effort now to build something you want later. Only you can decide what you want to do next? With that, what are you going to deiced to do? What are you going to sacrifice to help build that future you know you want to have?
