He who has begun his task has half done it. Stop freewheeling, get into gear, and do something with your life. There are so many avenues to explore, so why not explore them? Never be afraid to step into the unknown, into the new. Do it fearlessly, always expecting the very best as you do so. That which does not kill us makes us stronger. First we will be best, and then we will be first. Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, teachers. If you are not afraid to face the music, you may someday lead the band.

An objective without a plan is a dream. The man who is waiting for something to turn up might start on his shirt sleeves. This Saturday, do something you have wanted to do for years. Something just for yourself. And repeat this process once every month. When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die. When one door closes another opens. Expect that new door to reveal even greater wonders and glories and surprises. Feel yourself grow with every experience. And look for the reason for it Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no ones definition of your life, but define yourself. Begin difficult things while they are easy. A thousand-mile journey begins with one step. 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.

This Saturday, do something you have wanted to do for years. Something just for yourself. And repeat this process once every month. Do or do not. There is no try. Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment. Have no fear of perfection you will never reach it. If you are never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take chances. Only a mediocre person is always at his best. Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they are yours.
