“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark TwainFor those of us fortunate enough to live in the most economically developed countries, there really is no limit to what we can do but it is somehow easier to find reasons (=excuses) for why we can't, why we didn't. We say we tried but couldn't."Do or Do Not. There is no Try." - YodaEvery now and then we produce a burst of activity and start to make progress towards our life’s goals but then, life gets in the way. The point is that if we don’t achieve what we want, we are hurting ourselves, denying ourselves a life of “what can be” by accepting “what is”. Some truly tremendous achievers refuse to even consider reasons why they can’t. They look only for solutions and learn how to improve.Listen to Nick Vujicic, the man with No Arms No Legs No Worries:
Now tell me again, what you “can’t” do?I believe Nick Vujicic is a tremendous inspiration to millions around the world with his positive attitude, his “can-do” approach and his wonderful sense of humour. He shows us how the impossible becomes “I’m-possible”.Everything we do, or don’t do, has an impact on other people. Failing to provide financially for our families has obvious consequences to lifestyle and what we can offer our children. Sometimes what we could develop is a skill, a gift we have, and if we don’t we deny others a piece of our ability and unique flavour.It is said that everyone has a book inside them. E L James wrote “Fifty Shades of Grey” as an e-book and just hoped that some people would like to read it. It has exploded into an international phenomenon and helped millions of women come out of their sexuality shells.
