Why not go out on a limb? That is where the fruit is Some people walk in the rain. Others just get wet. Do not compromise yourself. You are all you have got. If you are never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take chances. The winds and waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators.
It is by what we ourselves have done, and not by what others have done for us, that we shall be remembered in after ages. People are not remembered by how few times they fail but by how often they succeed. Every wrong step is another step forward.
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. The winds and waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators. I do not seek. I find. Nothing is so exhausting as indecision, and nothing is so futile. You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however. In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high. 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
