...i cleaned out my old address book transferring numbers to the new one in the old book i found the following i had recorded as notes to myself where i got them i'm not sure but they sure do apply today as well:
worthwhile goals demand effort, risk & sacrifice...persist thru fear & doubt, draw on inner resources...every new challenge serves as an intiation. you meet discouragement; you overcome discomfort, boredom, & frustration; & you find out what you're made of.
go toward what attracts or excites or inspires you-toward what touches your heart. ask yourself what's worth the effort & the sacrifices that come with commitment to any goal.
when discipline & patience join forces,, they become a persistance that endures past the peaks & valleys to carry intentions to completions.
i understand these more today than i did five years ago i'll keep them in my new address book...
