The wisest men follow their own direction. 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. First we form habits, then they form us. Conquer your bad habits, or they will eventually conquer you. Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself, and dares to become involved in experimenting with his own life. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff ...and it's All Small Stuff. Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits. 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.
Begin difficult things while they are easy. A thousand-mile journey begins with one step. To think is easy. To act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult of all. Have no fear of perfection you will never reach it. 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 I do not seek. I find.
We achieve a sense of self from what we do for ourselves and how we develop our capacities. If all your efforts have gone into developing others, you are bound to feel empty. TAKE YOUR TURN NOW. Begin to be now what you will be hereafter. What lies before us and what lies beyond us is tiny compared to what lies within us. Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, teachers. 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.
