Have You Tried?

"I'd rather be a failure than the man who's never tried;
I'd rather seek the mountaintop than always stand aside.
Oh, let me hold some lofty dream and make my desperate fight,
And though I fail I still shall know I tried to serve the right."- Edgar Albert Guest, poet

It is better to be a failure than to be the person who has never 
tried anything in his or her life.
It is better to be called a failure than to be the person
who 'always stand aside.'
If you want to make it in life, you must keep your dreams.
You must fight your fight. 
You must believe that you can achieve your dreams.
Without self-belief, they won't happen.
And you must try 'to serve the right.'

The Most Difficult Thing To Be Is Who You Are Not

The most difficult thing to be is who you are not. Do not go there. It won’t work.

No matter where you are, no matter what is going on in your life, the best thing you can do for yourself is to ALWAYS be comfortable with yourself.

Why? Because you can run away from other people, but you cannot run away from yourself.

You are good enough for yourself. Do not let other people put you down. And do not put yourself down. Leo Buscaglia once said, “The easiest thing to be in the world is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don’t let them put you in that position.”

And do not put yourself in that position.
