I found this quote and I think it says it all:
Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours. ― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
Print out multiple copies of this quote and tape it to every surface you touch and see throughout your day.
Read it. Often.
Never let it out of your mind.
I absolutely love the last lines:
The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.
TAKE THE NEXT STEP!
