Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?
It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, ‘Always do what you are afraid to do.’
Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving.
When you set goals, something inside of you starts saying, ‘Let’s go, let’s go,’ and ceilings start to move up.
People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have no personal goals which are worthwhile. Get yourself a goal worth working for. Better still, get yourself a project. Always have something ahead of you to look forward to
to work for and hope for.
If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.
Your circumstances may be uncongenial, but they shall not remain so if you only perceive an ideal and strive to reach it. You cannot travel within and stand still without.
Do just once what others say you can’t do, and you will never pay attention to their limitations again.
If an individual sets an achievable goal and never gives up, they will either achieve their goal, or die trying. If a civilisation sets an achievable goal and never gives up, they will achieve their goal. What shall we do?
The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.
