>Think about it.

13 Dec


‎”This force, which is the best thing in you, your highest self, will never respond to any ordinary half-hearted call, or any milk-and-water endeavor, It can only be reached by your supremest call, your supremest effort. It will respond only to the call that is backed up by the whole of you, not part of you; you must be all there in what you are trying to do. You must bring every particle of your energy, unanswerable resolution, your best efforts, your persistent industry to your task or the best will not come out of you. You must back up your ambition by your whole nature, by unbounded enthusiasm and a determination to win which knows no failure… Only a masterly call, a masterly will, a supreme effort, intense and persistent application, can unlock the door to your inner treasure and release your highest powers.”
– Orison Swett Marden

“Real happiness comes from spending your life in your own way. If you walk in another’s shoes or take another’s path, you don’t leave any footprints of your own. This doesn’t mean you have to be different from everyone else, and it doesn’t mean that others can’t offer you wisdom. It simply means learning to tell the difference between what comes from within and what is imposed on you from the outside. Happiness, you see, is nothing if it’s not about being more and more of who you really are.” 
– Robert Mack
