It ensures that you will absolutely be doing things different from everybody else. I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in. The creative place where no one else has ever been.
There are definitely elements of both that I like. Launching a business is kind of like a motorboat: You can go very quickly and turn fast. That's how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. You just start to like the taste of your own blood. One should teach us how to make a living and the other how to live. The sense of independence and security is very sweet. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
It's life's change agent; it clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now, the new is you. But, someday, not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it's quite true. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. They may be too busy or lack the confidence or technical ability to carry them out. But I want to carry them out. It is a matter of getting up and doing it.
Get so obnoxiously rich that when that tax bill comes, your first thought will be to choke on how big a check you have to write. May I never be content. May I never be perfect. So I started telling them, you should be taking a pledge, and the pledge should be: 'I'm not a job seeker; I'm a job giver. Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. The best reward is to get there surrounded by winners.
I went through a few very difficult years where I felt like a failure. But it was actually really important for me to go through that. Struggle, for me, is the most inspirational thing in the world. In the first, it is ridiculed. In the second, it is opposed. In the third, it is regarded as self-evident. That is the recipe. It will not always get you to the top, but should get you pretty near. Happiness never decreases by being shared. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can't do. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.
Taste the relish to be found in competition -- in having put forth the best within you. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong. They're given, after all. Choices can be hard. You can seduce yourself with your gifts if you're not careful, and if you do, it'll probably be to the detriment of your choices. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction. Give me a man without a goal, and I will give you a stock clerk. Or what's a heaven for?
