You owe it to everyone around you to strive to improve. That is if the people around you want you around. Especially if what you do(or don’t do) has a direct effect on them and they cannot do anything. Love is love, but sorry that will only go so far. Eventually the people around are going to get tired of being held back by your insensitivity. They will get resentful by the fact that you don’t seem to care.
You can’t go through life without having goals. A person without goals is like a ship without a rudder. You have to plant seeds for success to grow it. There must be hundreds of quotes in English alone to portray the idea that having goals is good. Plus you have to earnestly work towards them.
You owe yourself to make 2011 better than 2010. You have to. Look around you and see what will happen if you don’t.
