It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.
All things are difficult before they are easy.
I have hoped, I have planned, I have striven,
To the will I have added the deed;
The best that was in me I’ve given,
I have prayed, but the gods would not heed.
I have dared and reached only disaster,
I have battled and broken my lance;
I am bruised by a pitiless master
That the weak and the timid call Chance.
I am old, I am bent, I am cheated
Of all that Youth urged me to win;
But name me not with the defeated,
To-morrow again, I begin.
It Can Be Done / Poems of Inspiration
“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” – Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Our personal belief system and the doubters we associate with are often the biggest hurdles we have to clear before we dare to leap into the unknown.
The only way I know of to clear the hurdles is to shake away the doubters, toss aside our fears, and set out.
The only sure outcome if we sit on the sidelines and let life pass us by is a suitcase filled with regrets and bitterness.
Don’t sit on the sidelines. Take the leap into the unknown. You may fool everyone and achieve what others said was impossible. Or, you may fail, look back and laugh at the doubters and tell them, “I didn’t quite make it, but it was one hell of a ride.”
Don’t Quit. Never Give Up!
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
Thomas A. Edison
Can you remember a time where an outcome in your life was uncertain? This was a time when others may have told you to quit. You didn’t quit. You fought on and succeeded. Good for you. What was happening? Who was there? How did you feel when you succeeded?
Now, take that same energy and apply to your life today. Never quit. Never give up.
