Overcoming The Desire to Act III

As an adult, I’m not only responsible for myself, my success has a rippling effect on my community and while it's easy to dwell on what others have done to inhibit our growth, I’m always beating myself down on what I’m doing to live a very mediocre life and how my laziness contributes further to pulling all of us down.
