“Go and Do It”


“All men dream, but not equally.  Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.”      (T. E. Lawrence)



“If you assume that there’s no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope.  If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, there are opportunities to change things, there’s a chance you may contribute to making a better world.  The choice is yours.”      (Noam Chomsky)



“Know that you can always choose the thoughts you allow in your mind, so make the effort to replace dis-empowering, weakening thoughts with those of a higher spiritual frequency.  It is your choice!”       (Dr. Wayne Dyer)



“Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment.  Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated.  Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as his specific opportunity to implement it.”     (Viktor Frankl)



“Don’t wait – initiate!  That’s the deeply embedded belief system of strong leaders.  An ancient Chinese proverb teaches that ‘the person who waits for a roast duck to fly into their mouth must wait for a very long time.’  Regardless of their position or role, leaders don’t wait for something to happen or someone to tell them what to do.  They go and do it.”       (Jim Clemmer, The Leadership Digest)
