If you have chosen to read on, this is what I have to say.
Hold on to your dreams! Refuse to quit. Quitters never win and winners never quit. Take your time. Take a long walk. If you live in city like me, take your long walk through city blocks. If you are in countryside, you have a better advantage. Take long walk through that vast field, befriending nature on way.
Don’t just walk tucking your hands in your jacket pocket like a detective. No! Go over those plans of yours again and again as you walk. Rewrite if need be, there is great power in writing down. Don’t tell me you have a retentive memory. Write them down. You already have so much in your head, so write your dreams and plans down, paste it where you can see it everyday. Over washing sink: beside that mirror, your restroom door. Paste it on your computer so you could see it as you chat with friends.
Then set out to bring it to past, ignoring those mountains, for mountains (which are your challenges) most times are made out of molehills and storms in teacups.
Tell yourself, “ I won’t quit until I get what I want. There is a YES behind every no and a solution to every pressing problem confronting me. I will find it.” Close your eyes, take a deep breath and say to yourself, “I have crossed rubicon, and there’s no going back. I will either get a big hit with my plans or I will have to hang on longer than Abraham Lincoln.”
Say to yourself, “ I have gone too far from where I started from and I’m not giving up. Never!”
And as you seek your dreams with hands and feet unwearied by labors, remember that dawn is not far in coming.
