You cannot pick cherries with your back to the tree. Eliminate something superfluous from your life. Break a habit. Do something that makes you feel insecure. Carry out an action with complete attention and intensity as if it were your last If you are not afraid to face the music, you may someday lead the band. In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high. The rich substance of the Universe is yours to do with as you wish. Why settle for so little in life when you can have so much, just be daring to be different in your thinking. To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing. Do not play for safety; it is the most dangerous thing in the world. Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment.

First we form habits, then they form us. Conquer your bad habits, or they will eventually conquer you. Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think. He who has begun his task has half done it. Your self-beliefs either support or undermine you. If you are never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take chances. Nothing determines who we will become so much as those things we choose to ignore. Make the most of today. Translate your good intentions into actual deeds.
