– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Each step has a way of preparing us for the next step. The journey reveals the destination. Don’t pretend you know where you’re going to end up. Instead, listen for the direction in which you’re being nudged. Today. Take that step.

Our dreams need us and the world needs our dreams. I believe and I know that your willingness and ability to live your creative dreams directly benefits the whole world. Every person living or actively engaged in living his or her dream is more available to be of use to others. When we are consciously expanding ourselves and our dreams, we attract and add to what is needed in this world. – SARK, Making Your Creative Dreams Real
“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the actions.”
– Confucius, Chinese philosopher
Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose– a point which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

“…if there is something holding you back, you must press on until you have trampled it to dust. Of course, simply pressing on will not in itself reveal to you the direction you must take: all you can do is go forward until you collide with something.”
–Natsume Soseki– My Individualism
Those who are born prodigies aren’t happy. Only those who believe in themselves til the end and battle on with a fiery spirit, are truly happy.
