“Nothing to be done.” – Estragon from ‘Waiting for Godot’
It genuinely pains me to admit that in my 17 years of online and affiliate marketing there is but a one-word description for the vast majority of people I’ve come across that fail in business…and life:
I could cite numerous examples and tell lengthy stories to support my claim (I don’t have to as I know that I am right) that most people sadly never get close to their potential merely because they simply don’t fucking act.
What I will do is present a few excerpts from a Wikipedia description of a famous play I cited above:
The play opens on an outdoor scene of two bedraggled companions: the philosophical Vladimir and the weary Estragon who, at the moment, cannot remove his boots from his aching feet, finally muttering, “Nothing to be done.” Vladimir takes up the thought loftily, while Estragon vaguely recalls having been beaten the night before. Finally, his boots come off, while the pair ramble and bicker pointlessly. When Estragon suddenly decides to leave, Vladimir reminds him that they must stay and wait for an unspecified person called Godot—a segment of dialogue that repeats often. Unfortunately, the pair cannot agree on where or when they are expected to meet with this Godot. They only know to wait at a tree, and there is indeed a leafless one nearby.
…A boy then arrives, purporting to be a messenger sent from Godot to tell the pair that Godot will not be coming that evening “but surely tomorrow”. During Vladimir’s interrogation of the boy, he asks if he came the day before, making it apparent that the two men have been waiting for a long period and will likely continue. After the boy departs, the moon appears, and the two men verbally agree to leave and find shelter for the night, but they merely stand without moving.
You can read the rest here, but I would rather you didn’t.
What I would wish for you is to avoid being the meek that shall demerit the earth.
