Oh How Far You Can Go


Every now and then I read something that makes me think….that nails the essence of 40:20 Vision. Yesterday this quote came my way from author José Micard Teixeira – recently quoted by Meryl Streep as words she lives by. It was one of those moments. There is something that happens as you interact on this planet longer …eventually you stop fighting others and you start realizing your power. The only race that really matter’s is the one you have with yourself. When you stop getting slowed down by the hurdles other people put in your way with their judgement or worse….oh how far you can go! Imagine what could happen if we got to that mindset earlier.

“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.”
