Begin difficult things while they are easy. A thousand-mile journey begins with one step. We can try to avoid making choices by doing nothing, but even that is a decision. 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? If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way. Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
In times of stress, be bold and valiant. You cannot cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Do not let yourself indulge in vain wishes. Nothing of great value in life comes easily. Men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better off than those who try to do nothing and succeed. Though no one can go back and make a new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new end. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff ...and it's All Small Stuff.
Normal is not something to aspire to, it is something to get away from. To think is easy. To act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult of all. First we will be best, and then we will be first. Some people walk in the rain. Others just get wet. Whoever I am and whatever I am doing, some kind excellence is within my reach. Why not go out on a limb? That is where the fruit is Though no one can go back and make a new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new end. Energy and persistence conquer all things.
