The barrier to our future is often the very plans that we’ve created to get there.
Anyone whose goal is ‘something higher’ must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.
God’s grace and mighty power aided us in the accomplishment of our goals.
If you have a painting in you, paint. If you have a song to sing, sing. Don’t judge your creation. Just create it. Banish doubt and fear and step out of your own way if you have to. Write if you’re a writer and invent if you’re an inventor. Do what you were born to do. Only then will you know a remarkable life.
Committing your goals to paper increases the likelihood of your achieving them by one thousand percent.
Tell me, who in this life, were never guided in course of their realization of their goal?
There are always periodic opportunities to give up, while every single moment is an opportunity to persevere.
Focus on your objectives and base your decisions on a moral foundation.
If someone tells you that you can’t do it, then prove to yourself that you can. You don’t need somebody else’s word for it, you just need yours.
Successful people do what others know they should do but will not. To become a success, or just be *more* successful, you will do what average, less-motivated people will not.
