You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff …and it’s All Small Stuff. Whoever I am and whatever I am doing, some kind excellence is within my reach. Better get a stiff neck from aiming too high than a hunch from aiming too low. 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. If you do not do it excellently, do not do it at all. Because if it is not excellent, it will not be profitable or fun, and if you are not in business for fun or profit, what the hell are you doing there?
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. It is never too late to be what you might have been. You cannot pick cherries with your back to the tree. Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself, and dares to become involved in experimenting with his own life. Better get a stiff neck from aiming too high than a hunch from aiming too low. What lies before us and what lies beyond us is tiny compared to what lies within us.
Quit now, you will never make it. If you disregard this advice, you will be halfway there. Nothing is so exhausting as indecision, and nothing is so futile. The first two letters of the word goal spell go. Begin difficult things while they are easy. A thousand-mile journey begins with one step. 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
