Blog quote #673...

Here's blog quote #673...
"Let him who would move the world, move himself first."

Amazing advice that came from thousands of years ago. The lesson here is we all talk of great things, but before barking out orders to "do this, change that, try this, check that out... etc"-- it all starts with ourselves.

Be the one who wants to change the world. I believe that was from Gandhi, himself.
Sage wisdom  here, from some pretty big hitters!

That's my view...what say you?

Here's Blog Quote #672...
"When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, (the world),and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it come off in his hand, and that it was only tied on --to scare away the timid adventurers." -Ralph Waldo Emerson-

How true is this statement? Don't you find often we are incredibly scared to step out of our comfort zone, and try something new or take on a different challenge? As Emerson so rightly points out-- when we do, we frequently discover that there wasn't much to be scared of after all, except--the unknown.

And one of the beauties of life, is that many a time--the unknown turns out to be fun, refreshing, exciting, and knowledge gaining. Even all the above.

Message: Grab life by the beard. It's not so scary. And more times than not, you will be mighty glad you did!

"Most great people have attained their greatest success, just one step...beyond their greatest failure."
-Napoleon Hill-

Isn't that interesting?

I guess the main, loud and clear message here is--keep going! Even when you think all is lost, it's probably closer than it's ever been.

Full speed ahead.

Blog Quote #670

Here's Blog Quote #670...
"A hero is born among a hundred, a wise man is found among a thousand, but an accomplished one might not be found even among a hundred thousand men."   -Plato-

Taking nothing away from heroes and wise men, the wildly accomplished are tough to find.

The reality is, it's extremely hard to be fully accomplished. On the mental aspect, people tend to limit themselves. They find reasons and excuses why something cannot be done. They lack belief and courage. Desire and will power becomes soft if there isn't a full, all out commitment. Not to mention there are plenty of distractions and roadblocks along the way looking to grab your focus.

As stated, it's rigorously tough to be a highly accomplished individual. On the plus side, many have done it before it is doable.  Heroes are awesome. Wise men are always welcome. And accomplished people sometimes just need support and encouragement to continue on their quest, whatever that may be.

Hats and Caps off to all heroes, wise men and accomplished people. Onward we go...

Here's Blog Quote #669...
"Be yourself. Everyone else is taken."
-Seen on a sign-

While driving the other day, I noticed this sign outside a church on their message board. It made me stop and think.

Be unique. Be you. Why not?  

They only made one of you, and me, and everyone else too. We all need to respect and accentuate who WE are. Forget about getting caught up in attempted copies of someone else.
