“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was ending, he turned into a butterfly” — old proverb
We usually ask for permission for what we want — try changing that. You know what you want and need — “go for it.” We work with the reality of our lives and try to improve on that.

Afraid, we don’t know how to make a start, or we are afraid that we will make mistakes. If you are not willing to take risks, you won’t we able to proceed.


The easiest way to be successful in life is to take just “one thing” and to become an expert in this subject. It takes courage to take action and make thoughts a reality. What are you gifted at?
Waiting for conditions to appear never works. It is necessary to go out retrieving what you wish — grasp it, and hold onto it. If you perform as you always do, you will achieve nothing. Theorizing differently, visualizing issues from every angle, is more productive.
Failure is part of the experience, and expecting that you will have failures is preferable. Enthusiasm is necessary — forget about failure. You will have more missteps that accomplishments.
You must be willing to give as well as take everyone’s ideas and successes, and be supportive of others as well. Try to become a “person of value,” to yourself and to other people.
Achievement, of anything, is very difficult. It is not just what the public see, but also the months of work behind the scenes, to make achievements happen.
Find out what you excel at. In order to do this, you will have to try many activities, vocations, and “if you’re going through hell,” as Winston Churchill used to say, “keep going.”
Rather than getting frustrated by what doesn’t happen, or happens “in your time frame,” improve your argument, and respond.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
“ Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly may alight upon you.” — Nathaniel Hawthorne.
