Until you try, you do not know what you cannot do. People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I do not believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they cannot find them, make them. All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing.
If you are not fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm. All who seek the roots of life dig in solitude for them. 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? Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they are yours. Only a mediocre person is always at his best. A man may fall many times but he will not be a failure until he says someone pushed him. The man who is waiting for something to turn up might start on his shirt sleeves. 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 People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I do not believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they cannot find them, make them. You cannot cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Do not let yourself indulge in vain wishes.
Have no fear of perfection you will never reach it. Better get a stiff neck from aiming too high than a hunch from aiming too low. How was Einstein able to conceive the Theory of Relativity? He said the one crucial thing that helped him was his ability to visualise: what would it be like to be riding on the end of a light beam? Begin to be now what you will be hereafter. Stop freewheeling, get into gear, and do something with your life. There are so many avenues to explore, so why not explore them? Never be afraid to step into the unknown, into the new. Do it fearlessly, always expecting the very best as you do so. Nothing comes from doing nothing. He who has begun his task has half done it. If you are never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take chances.
