The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be. Instead of seeing the rug being pulled from under us, we can learn to dance on a shifting carpet. What lies before us and what lies beyond us is tiny compared to what lies within us. There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go. 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. In times of stress, be bold and valiant. The first two letters of the word goal spell go.

It is better to light a small candle than to curse the darkness. Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment. Until you try, you do not know what you cannot do. A man may fall many times but he will not be a failure until he says someone pushed him. Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself, and dares to become involved in experimenting with his own life. Nothing comes from doing nothing. That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

When one door closes another opens. Expect that new door to reveal even greater wonders and glories and surprises. Feel yourself grow with every experience. And look for the reason for it 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. People are not remembered by how few times they fail but by how often they succeed. Every wrong step is another step forward. Nothing is so exhausting as indecision, and nothing is so futile. You cannot cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Do not let yourself indulge in vain wishes.
