“The journey of a thousand miles starts with one step” Chinese Proverb
Don’t sit down and take what comes. Go after what you want. Mediocre men wait for opportunities to come to them. Strong, able, alert men go after opportunities. Mike Murdock says pursuit is the proof of desire. In this life we only get the things for which we hunt, for which we strive and for which we are willing to sacrifice. Faith is too believe what we do not see and the reward for this faith is to see what we believe. There is strength in faith. He who believes is strong and he who doubts is weak. Strong actions precede great actions. The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubt of today. You need to write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year. When you have this consciousness, you put in your best effort daily. This is important because someone is watching you who is capable of greatly rewarding you.
Moving with the right people will also encourage you to take the right action at the right time. When you are with the right people, the best comes out of you and the worst part of you dies. You need to find your place….where your talents meets the needs of the market. A great sage says that “no man will be ideally successful until he has found his place, like a train, he is strong on the rail line but weak anywhere else. You cannot continue to waste a part of your life in attempts to display qualities you do not posses.
Pursue your dreams….what you have a deep interest in. more men fail through lack of purpose than lack of talent. I challenge you today; it is never too late to be what you might have been. Have you failed in a venture before? Never mind failure is a delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead-end street. Since it does not cost money to dream, you will only do yourself good to stretch your imagination. Don’t put a limit on what you will do thereby placing a limit on what you can do. If you are afraid of mistakes, you cannot arrive at mastery. I will close with the words of Mike Murdock “You will never possess that you are unwilling to pursue”. Reach out to your dreams.
