When You Start Something, The Work Is Half Done

Start. Start something. Do not wait for the perfect to start something. Whatever you want to do with your life, start it today. As Ausonius once said,” Begin; to begin is half the work. Let half still remain; again begin this, and thou wilt have finished.”

Every Winner Has Scars

Do not hide your scars. Because where you are going in your life is more important than your scars. Do not wear anything to cover your scars. Let them out. Reveal them to the world. Be proud of your life. Be proud of your journey.

It is through our scars that we learn humility. It is through our scars that we learn more about ourselves. And it is through humility that we endure our scars.

Your life is more important than your scars. Instead of hiding your defeats, your failures, your disappointments, why not celebrate them? Don’t say, “Why me?” Say to yourself, “Thank you, Lord.” Whatever you are going through in your life, do not give up. Do not see it as a problem. See challenges as opportunities to grow yourself, your life, your career.

Do not be afraid to try something new. If you fail at first, try again. Be passionate about your life. The problem is to stay passionate about your life. There are always going to be problems, challenges. You can’t live a problem-free life. It is how you handle your problems that will make all the difference. Herbert N. Casson said, “There are always obstacles and competitors. There is never an open road, except the wide road that leads to failure. Every great success has always been achieved by fight. Every winners has scars. The men who succeed are the efficient few. They are the few who have the ambition and will power to develop themselves.” If you want to succeed, you must face your inner demons.
