What is your attitude in life, do you wait for things to happen OR go get what you want in life? This quote is a reminder and inspires us to wake up and get going for what we want. things might come if we wait but even things come if we are positive and go work for them.

things come to people who wait, but things come to those who go out and get them.

Abraham Lincoln

Hey everyone, I am sure that you have heard of Abraham Lincoln. He was the 16th president of the United States as well as an advocate for civil rights and the only President to abolish slavery across America. He is also known for being on the U.S.A. penny, and wearing his notorious top hat.

Now that we have explained a little bit about the great Abe Lincoln to those who may not know, let’s talk about the quote.

things come to people who wait, but things come to those who go out and get them…, I like this quote because it shows that you cannot expect things to be handed to you, such as jobs, relationships, oppurtunities, etc. they are there for you to have of course, but only if you work for them. You have to be good enough, if that makes sense, to be worthy of receiving those things.

If you wait and wait and wait etc. for someone who you be in a long-term relationship with you, you will eventually get it, but if you go out, look for your soulmate, or whatever you want to call it, you will have a better chance at meeting them and maybe even find someone who loves doing something you love as well.

All I want you guys to do is try to go out and find opportunities for yourself rather than waiting for them to come to you. Doing so will result in more happiness because you will be able to do things faster and have more time to do things that you want, etc.

Combine with an Affirmation, “I Imagine, I believe and I go get!
