Jonathan Winters – Swim Out to Meet It

Jonathan Winters - Swim Out to Meet It

“If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to meet it!”

-Jonathan Winters

Winters reminds us of the importance of taking action. Too many of us have become apathetic to our future and merely find ourselves going through the motions of life, rather than taking control of it.

Have you spent countless hours (maybe years) waiting for your ship to come in?

I know I have.

Though we may not like it, opportunity doesn’t come knocking if we aren’t waiting by the door. You can’t simply wait for something good to happen; you need to look for it, seek it out, and make it happen.
