“Traveling the Road of Your Dreams”

“”The master says:  If you are traveling the road of your dreams, be committed to it.  Do not leave an open door to be used as an excuse such as, ‘Well, this isn’t exactly what I wanted.’ Therein are contained the seeds of defeat.  “Walk your path.  Even if your steps have to be uncertain, even if you know that you could be doing it better.  If you accept your possibilities in the present, there is no doubt that you will improve in the future.  But if you deny that you have limitations, you will never be rid of them.  “Confront your path with courage, and don’t be afraid of the criticism of others.  And, above all, don’t allow yourself to become paralyzed by self-criticism.”    (Paolo Coelho, Maktub)



“Security is mostly a superstition.  It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.  Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.  Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”    (Helen Keller)



“People who don’t take risks generally make about two big mistakes a year.  People who do take risks generally make about two big mistakes a year.”     (Peter Drucker)



“We are all functioning at a small fraction of our capacity to live fully in its total meaning of loving, caring, creating, and adventuring.  Consequently, the actualizing of our potential can become the most exciting adventure of our lifetime.”    (Herbert A. Otto)



“The two important things I did learn were that you are as powerful and strong as you allow yourself to be, and that the most difficult part of any endeavor is taking the first step, making the first decision.”    (Robyn Davidson)



“Nothing is as real as a dream.  The world can change around you, but your dream will not.  Responsibilities need not erase it.  Duties need not obscure it.  Because the dream is within you, no one can take it away.”    (Tom Clancy)
