Until you try, you do not know what you cannot do. He who has begun his task has half done it. A man may fall many times but he will not be a failure until he says someone pushed him. If you are not fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm. Begin to be now what you will be hereafter. There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go. Imagine you only have one year to live. What important things would you be doing? How would you be allotting your time to accomplish the most you could? This exercise is one method of going after your priorities.
Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits. Nothing determines who we will become so much as those things we choose to ignore. He who has begun his task has half done it. When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die. 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? 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. Only a mediocre person is always at his best. This Saturday, do something you have wanted to do for years. Something just for yourself. And repeat this process once every month.
