Once you make the fundamental choice to be the predominant creative force in your life, any approach you choose to take for your own growth and development can work, and you are especially attracted to those approaches which will work particularly well for you. Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think. Have no fear of perfection you will never reach it. Until you try, you do not know what you cannot do. I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do.

If you have a lemon, make lemonade. Make the most of today. Translate your good intentions into actual deeds. People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I do not believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they cannot find them, make them. It is by what we ourselves have done, and not by what others have done for us, that we shall be remembered in after ages. When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die. There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go. Whoever I am and whatever I am doing, some kind excellence is within my reach. 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.

Why not go out on a limb? That is where the fruit is Do not be afraid to take big steps. You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps. Only a mediocre person is always at his best. 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. 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.
