Strength is never bestowed, it must be attained by ourselves. You will never get yourself to anyplace you want by blaming or excusing. Your results belong only to you and they can be earned only by you.
Moving along isn’t easy. When we get stronger and better, we enter a new territory. If we’re always improving, we’re always in new territory. Comfort doesn’t find a place there. A life of ongoing growth means a life lived outside the comfort zone—always.
So, don’t just stand there when you see something you want. Gauge your opportunity, then move in full tilt.
