While I was planning my day today, I came across a couple of thoughts that cheered me up a little. Especially this early in the morning. The first thought comes from Robert Browning the great poet: "The aim, if reached or not, makes great the life: Try to be Shakespeare, leave the rest to fate."
For me this is the same as saying dream big, set lofty goals, and work to achieve them. Even if you don't achieve them, you will be in a much better place where you wind up than you were when you started.
The second quote comes from Joe Namath: "When you have confidence, you can have a lot of fun. And when you have fun, you can do amazing things."
To me this involves being prepared through what ever means necessary, then putting that preparation to good use and having fun with it, great things will happen. No one thought that in Super Bowl III that the New York Jets had any chance at beating the mighty Baltimore Colts. Well, no one but Joe Namath, he beat them with brilliant play, confidence and a smile.
The last comes from Napoleon Bonaparte: "Those who have changed the universe have never done it by changing officials, but always by inspiring the people."
This is one just to remind me that I need to take charge and lead. No one can do it for you. You need to do it for yourself. Anyway, I hope that these quotes can help someone to make it a great day!
