Better get a stiff neck from aiming too high than a hunch from aiming too low. Have no fear of perfection you will never reach it. First we will be best, and then we will be first. 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. Nothing of great value in life comes easily. In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high.

Nothing is so exhausting as indecision, and nothing is so futile. Begin to be now what you will be hereafter. Instead of seeing the rug being pulled from under us, we can learn to dance on a shifting carpet. You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short-range failures. Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself, and dares to become involved in experimenting with his own life. Nothing determines who we will become so much as those things we choose to ignore. The Universe Law is impartial. It will give you anything you believe. It will throw you garbage or roses depending on the energy you put in. You are the one in charge, and you must accept that and stand alone. If you think God is coming down to fix things for you, forget it. God is out playing golf

The winds and waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators. The difference between doers and dreamers is that the latter wait for the mood before taking action while the former create the mood by acting. 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 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? Do not compromise yourself. You are all you have got. 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. Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision, for the limits of the world.
