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. Act, look, feel successful, conduct yourself accordingly, and you will be amazed at the positive results. 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. A man may fall many times but he will not be a failure until he says someone pushed him. He who has begun his task has half done it. Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself, and dares to become involved in experimenting with his own life. Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment. Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision, for the limits of the world. 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.
It is never too late to be what you might have been. The winds and waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators. Do not play for safety; it is the most dangerous thing in the world. If you have a lemon, make lemonade. If you are not afraid to face the music, you may someday lead the band.
