Today’s Quote on Human Potential by Emerson

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Is Your Dream Just Out of Reach?

I had a intuitive feeling one of my blog readers needs encouragement. I hope this small piece of encouragement helps you to stay the course until you reach your goal.

If it’s worth fighting for, you’ll find no obstacle is too great, no ocean to wide to achieve your purpose. You’ll discover  a way through, around, or over. The way is there, in front of you. So what if you haven’t found it yet. Don’t quit. Fight on. What you want is waiting for you.

Will ~ Poem by on Endurance & Confidence

Will

By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

You will be what you will to be;
   Let failure find its false content
   In that poor word “environment,”
But spirit scorns it, and is free.

It masters time, it conquers space,
   It cowes that boastful trickster Chance,
   And bids the tyrant Circumstance
Uncrown and fill a servant’s place.

The human Will, that force unseen,
   The offspring of a deathless Soul,
   Can hew the way to any goal,
Though walls of granite intervene.

Be not impatient in delay,
   But wait as one who understands;
   When spirit rises and commands,
The gods are ready to obey.

The river seeking for the sea
   Confronts the dam and precipice,

“Yet knows it cannot fail or miss;
You will be what you will to be!”
