If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way. Whoever I am and whatever I am doing, some kind excellence is within my reach. Normal is not something to aspire to, it is something to get away from. If you are not fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm. Once you make the fundamental choice to be the predominant creative force in your life, any approach you choose to take for your own growth and development can work, and you are especially attracted to those approaches which will work particularly well for you.
Do not be afraid to take big steps. You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps. 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 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. 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. Begin difficult things while they are easy. A thousand-mile journey begins with one step. Do not play for safety; it is the most dangerous thing in the world.
