The first two letters of the word goal spell go. Nothing of great value in life comes easily. Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no ones definition of your life, but define yourself. Quit now, you will never make it. If you disregard this advice, you will be halfway there. How was Einstein able to conceive the Theory of Relativity? He said the one crucial thing that helped him was his ability to visualise: what would it be like to be riding on the end of a light beam? This Saturday, do something you have wanted to do for years. Something just for yourself. And repeat this process once every month. You cannot pick cherries with your back to the tree.
To think is easy. To act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult of all. Success or failure depends more upon attitude than upon capacity. Successful people act as though they have accomplished or are enjoying something. Soon it becomes a reality.

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. Begin difficult things while they are easy. A thousand-mile journey begins with one step.
