-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, and I think all of us can agree with the sentiment in the quote.
Beginning is the hardest part of making a change. Brian Tracy has been quoted as saying that people should "Think continually in terms of the rewards of success rather than the penalties of failure." Doing this will make it easier to start on whatever project you have been putting off.
We put off starting projects of change but when we complete the project we claim victory and are uplifted. But sometimes we forget that it's one kind of victory to slay a beast, move a mountain, and cross
a chasm, but it's another kind altogether to realize that the beast, the mountain, and the chasm were of your own design. Which victory have you celebrated lately
Final thought: the next time you feel really hurt, really angry, or really, really upset, and you're sure that even I have been violated, shaken, and humbled, quick, check and see if the sky is any less blue, the sun any less radiant, the birds have stopped singing, or the flowers have lost their scent.
I'll wager you'll find that life has gone on much as before. Too consumed by the powers of now and the inevitabilities of love, understanding, and eternal life to have even missed a beat.
