The returns of putting effort into life.

Raise your hand as high as you can. Now raise it two inches higher. THAT’S WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOUR LIVES!

-George N. Parks

This quote always makes me think, especially as we’re nearing the end of the term here at school.  It worries me how little effort that people want to put into life.  Is this what society is coming to?

We as humans, are becoming lazier and lazier.  Very few people are taking the initiative to go out and do what they want to do in life.  Why would you ever do something that doesn’t make you happy every day?

The world would be a better place if we put effort in.  I promise, and it starts with standing up for what you truly believe in, taking a stand, and taking that leap of faith.  Maybe it all stems from people not believing in themselves anymore.


  1. How about asking why we would want to constantly stress ourselves out, and exhaust ourselves when we end up dying in the end anyways? The universe ends at some point and everything will be for not. Why not take life easy and be care free and stress free?
