You can accept reality,
or you can persist in your purpose until reality accepts you.
When you walk in purpose,
you collide with destiny.
The purpose of life is a life of purpose.

There is a quality of life out there on that edge
that tugs at our souls
and calls from us a better quality of person.
Devote today to something so daring
even you can’t believe you’re doing it.
He who risks and fails can be forgiven.
He who never risks
and never fails
is a failure in his whole being.

“You’ll learn, as you get older,
that rules are made to be broken.
Be bold enough to live life on your terms,
and never, ever apologize for it.
Go against the grain,
refuse to conform,
take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path.
Laugh in the face of adversity,
and leap before you look.
Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching.
March to the beat of your own drummer.
And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”

The galleries are full of critics.
They play no ball, they fight no fights.
They make no mistakes because they attempt nothing.
Down in the arena are the doers.
They make mistakes because they try many things.
The man who makes no mistakes lacks boldness and the spirit of adventure.
He is the one who never tries anything.
His is the brake on the wheel of progress.
And yet it cannot be truly said he makes no mistakes,
because his biggest mistake is the very fact that he tries nothing,
does nothing,
except criticize those who do things.

“You may encounter many defeats,
but you must not be defeated.
In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats,
so you can know who you are,
what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”
“The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”
“It is not enough that we do our best;
sometimes we must do what is required.”

Every choice carries a consequence.
For better or worse,
each choice is the unavoidable consequence of its predecessor.
There are not exceptions.
If you can accept that a bad choice carries the seed of its own punishment,
why not accept the fact that a good choice yields desirable fruit?
Destiny is not a matter of chance,
it is a matter of choice.
It is not a thing to be waited for;
it is a thing to be achieved.

We grow great by dreams.
All big men are dreamers.
They see things in the soft haze of a spring day
or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening.
Some of us let these dreams die,
but others nourish and protect them;
nurse them through bad days
till they bring them to the sunshine
and light which comes always to those who
hope that their dreams will come true.

In truth,
the only difference between those who have failed
and those who have succeeded
lies in the difference of their habits.
Good habits are the key to all success.
Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure.
Thus, the first law I will obey,
which precedes all others, is–
“I will form good habits and become their slaves.”

First we form habits,
then they form us.
Conquer your bad habits
or they will conquer you.

And then the day came,
when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to Blossom.
Be daring, be different, be impractical,
be anything that will assert integrity of purpose
and imaginative vision
against the play-it-safers,
the creatures of the commonplace,
the slaves of the ordinary.
The galleries are full of critics.
They play no ball, they fight no fights.
They make no mistakes because they attempt nothing.
Down in the arena are the doers.
They make mistakes because they try many things.
The man who makes no mistakes lacks boldness
and the spirit of adventure.
He is the one who never tries anything.
His is the brake on the wheel of progress.
And yet it cannot be truly said he makes no mistakes,
because his biggest mistake is the very fact that
he tries nothing, does nothing,
except criticize those who do things.
