Some of my favorite quotes on pursuing greatness:
Think. Think about the values and principles that are important to you.
Believe. Believe in yourself based on the thinking you have done.
Dream. Dream about what you want to become, based on your belief in yourself.
Dare. Dare to make your dream a reality.
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox ~
I learned this, at least, in my experiment: That if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
~Henry David Thoreau~
What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
Wherever you go employ all your heart.
~The Shu King~
The secret to life is to have a task, something you devote your entire life to . . . and the most important thing is -- it must be something you cannot possibly do!
By believing passionately in something that does not exist we create it. The non-existent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.
Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
~Lewis Carol, Chronicles of Narnia~
