I heard this phrase the other day and it really stuck with me. The world is full of makers and takers, those that work hard while others coast, those that do the right things when no one’s looking while others cut corners and only shine when the cameras are on.
I’ve been a road paver my whole life. I’ve always relied on me. If something needed to get done then I was the one going to do it. In my youth, I wanted to be the guy on the mound in the ninth to close out the game or the one leading off an inning late in the game when we needed a run to tie the game.
Taking the lead and taking the hill isn’t easy but someone’s gotta do it, so why not you?
Do you want to lead or follow? Do you want to make or take? Do you want to create destiny or be resigned to fate? The choices are yours, but I know what choices I’ll make…and have always made.
