The difference between try and triumph is a little umph (oomph). — Marvin Phillips
If you want to succeed at anything, you have to do something more than just try. You need to put in some work. Even a little work will make a difference. If you need help, ask your friends and fellow authors. — John Kremer
If opportunity doesn’t knock, don’t wait. Build a door.
I don’t know who said this originally, but I love the sentiment. If people don’t come to you, there is a reason. You haven’t given them a good reason. Clear and simple.
Build a door people can knock on. Build a door they can enter. Build a door they can knock down. Build a door they can blow up. — John Kremer
And, of course, it always helps to put up a sign so they know you’re there: Good stuff this way. Just open and enter!
Because you are alive, everything is possible. — Thich Nhat Hanh
Hanh is not talking about everything in a theoretical way. He’s talking about it in a very practical way.
Because you are alive, everything is really possible. And not just possible, but doable. And not just doable, but achievable. So start today doing what you love. — John Kremer
Never forget this.
