“The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.”
I believe the renowned painter of the Renaissance who had a long and highly successful life was speaking to this idea of having very high hopes and aims in this famous quotation. The danger is not in false hope, rather it is in no hope or low hopes. Therefore our aims and objectives are diminished by our beliefs before they can be worked on and materialized. You will see what you believe, not the other way around.[googmonify]4494413162:right:250:250[/googmonify]
The world is full of people who think too small or aim too low. As a way of convincing themselves of their own imagined limitations, these people always want to impose their limited point of view on the people around them. Many fall victim to this discouragement and settle for a life of under achievement.
Do not discuss your goals and dreams with those who have negative beliefs. Every time you share your enthusiasm with these people your energy is sapped! Soon you will give up striving because you have no more energy left to do anything. Maintain your energy level by taking action a little every day in the direction of your dreams. Don’t talk to people, just show them!
To succeed in life, we must THINK BIG and ACT BOLDLY! There is magic and power in boldness. So, don’t allow anyone to tell you how you should live your life. Be the Capitan of your own ship and sail to wherever your heart desires. After all, who is ultimately responsible for your life’s failures and successes but yourself?
