If you are not fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm. In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high. The man who is waiting for something to turn up might start on his shirt sleeves. If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way. Better get a stiff neck from aiming too high than a hunch from aiming too low. First we will be best, and then we will be first.
Some people walk in the rain. Others just get wet. Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself, and dares to become involved in experimenting with his own life. Believing is one thing, doing another. Many talk like the sea but their lives are stagnant marshes. Others raise their heads above the mountain tops, while their souls cling to the dark walls of caves 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. If you are not fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm. 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.
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. You do not have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things, to compete. You can be just an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff …and it’s All Small Stuff. First we will be best, and then we will be first. When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die. All who seek the roots of life dig in solitude for them. Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they are yours. Imagine you only have one year to live. What important things would you be doing? How would you be allotting your time to accomplish the most you could? This exercise is one method of going after your priorities.
