The wisest men follow their own direction. Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think. The Universe Law is impartial. It will give you anything you believe. It will throw you garbage or roses depending on the energy you put in. You are the one in charge, and you must accept that and stand alone.
If you think God is coming down to fix things for you, forget it. God is out playing golf You cannot pick cherries with your back to the tree. First we will be best, and then we will be first. I do not seek. I find. You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short-range failures. Nothing of great value in life comes easily.
Energy and persistence conquer all things. If you have a lemon, make lemonade. Until you try, you do not know what you cannot do. If you are never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take chances. Make the most of today. Translate your good intentions into actual deeds. In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high.
