These thoughts have guided my own adventure over the past few years…
Feeling restless? Is there something you want to do your in life?
“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones that you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” —Mark Twain
And if you aren’t sure what to do next, but you know there is something…
Write down all the ideas you have, and the ones you want to throw away – look at more closely…any resistance or fear you may have may be disguising something you feel deeply about.
And once you decide what YOU want to explore:
“You throw an anchor into the future you want to build and you pull yourself along by the chain”— John O’Neal via Mom (Thanks Mom!)
And remember this, when you hear “no” after floating an idea…
“Good ideas are not adopted automatically. They must be driven into practice with courageous patience.” —Hyman Rickover, US Navy
And when you are in that frustrating stage of learning/striving:
“Keep the work in front of you. Be tough. Be Patient.” — Pity the Man Who Doesn’t Travel, by Philip Kelly, in The Sun, February 2014, Issue 458.
