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 to be now what you will be hereafter. There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go. Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment. Do not compromise yourself. You are all you have got.
An objective without a plan is a dream. All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing. 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. The man who is waiting for something to turn up might start on his shirt sleeves. Nothing of great value in life comes easily. Remember, a dead fish can float downstream, but it takes a live one to swim upstream. 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? What lies before us and what lies beyond us is tiny compared to what lies within us.
