If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way. All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing. Quit now, you will never make it. If you disregard this advice, you will be halfway there. Stop freewheeling, get into gear, and do something with your life. There are so many avenues to explore, so why not explore them? Never be afraid to step into the unknown, into the new. Do it fearlessly, always expecting the very best as you do so. Why not go out on a limb? That is where the fruit is That which does not kill us makes us stronger. How was Einstein able to conceive the Theory of Relativity? He said the one crucial thing that helped him was his ability to visualise: what would it be like to be riding on the end of a light beam?
We achieve a sense of self from what we do for ourselves and how we develop our capacities. If all your efforts have gone into developing others, you are bound to feel empty. TAKE YOUR TURN NOW. How was Einstein able to conceive the Theory of Relativity? He said the one crucial thing that helped him was his ability to visualise: what would it be like to be riding on the end of a light beam? We can try to avoid making choices by doing nothing, but even that is a decision. First we will be best, and then we will be first. Remember, a dead fish can float downstream, but it takes a live one to swim upstream. Instead of seeing the rug being pulled from under us, we can learn to dance on a shifting carpet.
In times of stress, be bold and valiant. Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision, for the limits of the world. The difference between doers and dreamers is that the latter wait for the mood before taking action while the former create the mood by acting. Success or failure depends more upon attitude than upon capacity. Successful people act as though they have accomplished or are enjoying something. Soon it becomes a reality. Act, look, feel successful, conduct yourself accordingly, and you will be amazed at the positive results. Begin difficult things while they are easy. A thousand-mile journey begins with one step. Do not be afraid to take big steps. You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps. All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing.
