Failure should be our teacher

In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high. Normal is not something to aspire to, it is something to get away from. Whoever I am and whatever I am doing, some kind excellence is within my reach. When one door closes another opens. Expect that new door to reveal even greater wonders and glories and surprises. Feel yourself grow with every experience. And look for the reason for it One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.

Do not be afraid to take big steps

Begin to be now what you will be hereafter. Do or do not. There is no try. 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 Some people have greatness thrust upon them. Very few have excellence thrust upon them. It is never too late to be what you might have been. An objective without a plan is a dream. Do not be afraid to take big steps. You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps.

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.

Stop freewheeling

The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be. He who has begun his task has half done it.

One cannot govern with buts

Better get a stiff neck from aiming too high than a hunch from aiming too low. 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.

If you have a lemon, make lemonade

Do not tell me this a difficult problem. If it were not difficult it would not be a problem. Some people have greatness thrust upon them. Very few have excellence thrust upon them. Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence.

First we will be best

The wisest men follow their own direction. Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think. 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.

The way to be safe

Better get a stiff neck from aiming too high than a hunch from aiming too low.

Others just get wet

Why not go out on a limb? That is where the fruit is Some people walk in the rain. Others just get wet. Do not compromise yourself. You are all you have got. If you are never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take chances. The winds and waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators.

You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps

You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff …and it’s All Small Stuff. Whoever I am and whatever I am doing, some kind excellence is within my reach.

You are never given a wish

Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they are yours. If you are not fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm. 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?
