So is this more modern one by Alexander Woolcott: many people spend half their time wishing for things they could have if they didn spend half their time wishing. back to the title of this article, another big problem plaguing society is the illusion of Helen Keller had all the reasons in the world to put and low this apropos observation: is either a daring adventure or nothing . Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature. recently heard a speaker share this with her audience because she wanted to urge them not to settle for their lot in life: only the view from where you sit that makes you feel defeat, Life is full, with many aisles, so why don you change your seat? think that a good start if you absolutely, decidedly want to watch the from one of the seats. But why not come down on the field instead and experience life firsthand? Here are some of Les Brown s (adapted) words on this topic (from one of his seminars): a quiet secret most people don know, or think about: You can get out of life alive. Hello! You can die in the bleachers (as a life or you can die on the field (as a life But you won get out of this stadium called alive. So you might as well come down on the field and have some fun while you here! fun, take risks, seize opportunities, be bold, dare to live to the max! MAKE YOUR LIFE AN ADVENTURE. Chesterton who said: is the Champagne of life. Bolles wrote of the saddest lines in the world is, come now realistic. agree with Mr. Bolles, and history is our witness. The best parts of this world were fashioned by those who DARED to look hard at their wishes and gave them horses to ride. That is not it. One of the most commonplace reasons many people do not live their dreams is because something gets in their way. Sometimes the enemy of the best is the good, because that is an obstacle dressed as an opportunity. Most people have that best dream in their heart, that thing we know we were put on earth to nike shoes volleyball do, and we are passionate about it. When we start moving toward it, our success breeds opportunities. We look at these opportunities and then look back at our dream. We say to ourselves, that opportunity is not really my dream, but it looks good, pays well, and I take it. We take it, we stay, and we settle, and that is why we feel unsettled. Most people have a feeling of restlessness burning within them, because they have settled while their dream is still calling them. You will never get rid of that restlessness and that feeling that something in life is missing, until you turn, face, and move toward your dream. Do not settle for the good when the best is still within you. Manifest your greatness. you Craig. Think of how many times you heard the story of an actor who passed up the opportunity to play a best role in a movie that turned out to be one of the five movies nominated in the best picture category, because they were busy playing a good role in a movie that ended up a box office bust. It like that for you and me too. We have to think of every opportunity that comes our way as a chance to play a part. The question is whether it a good part, or a best part. Which part we play is ultimately our choice. Let choose wisely! the world a stage, and all the men and women merely players; They have their entrances and exits; and one man in his time plays many parts. William Shakespeare people are extras in their own movie. They have the possibility to write the script for it, to direct it, and they not even casting themselves a speaking part like a walk on, walk off part. Bob Proctor earth is a stage. Each person has his own part to play doesn lie in our role, but in how well we play it. Paramahansa Yogananda part you decided to play, give an Oscar winning performance.
