The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence and educational advantages; the question is what he will do with the things he has. The moment a young man ceases to dream or to bemoan his lack of opportunities and resolutely looks his conditions in the face, and resolves to change them, he lays the corner-stone of a solid and honorable success.
Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
-– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
-– Mark Victor Hansen
Dream big dreams, but never forget that realistic short-term goals are the keys to your success.
— Mac Anderson
I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.
You don’t need anyone else’s permission to be happy. Your life is magnificent not because someone says it is, but because you choose to see it as such.
— Ralph Marston
