Becoming The Change: Which Type of Person Are You?

“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, and others make it happen.”

-Michael Jordan

According to today’s quote by Basketball Hall Of Famer Michael Jordan there are three types of people. The first one are those that want things in life to happen. It can be to become a millionaire, CEO of a company or even just someone who wants to be married with two kids, a cat and a dog in the suburbs. Their ideals of the type of life they want to have is great, but that is where it all stops for them. Why? Wants are just goals written down on a paper and that is all they will ever be if nothing is done about them.

Now those people who wish it would happen, they are the dreamers. They have these lofty ideas but really, as with the wanters, have no plan of action. They are more or less living in a fantasy world. In both types of people they have good intentions but no formative plan to make things become a reality. However it is the doers as Michael Jordan mentions in the latter part of his quote that make it happen.

The doers are the ones that control their own narrative. They are the authors of their own story. They not only write the words but live by them through their acitons. What they say, what they write, they do. They back up what their putting down as the saying goes. They put in the hard work, long hours, and the training necessary to achieve what they desire. It is all a neverending process and one that in which the journey to get there is embraced.

We are only on this planet for a limited amount of time. Let’s make sure we strive to be the doers and not the latter two.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards managing yourself better?
