Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists… it is real… it is possible… it’s yours."
Every day we are bombarded by discouraging thoughts and doubts that, going unchecked, are destined to halt our progress at best, and ultimately destroy our dreams. But we have a choice.
With no effort at all, we can allow depressing thoughts to control us and consume our minds. Or, with a little bit of concerted effort, we can push these thoughts out of our minds and replace them with hope and inspiration!
I remember reading Atlas Shrugged many years ago and being inspired by this quote. I wrote it down and have committed it to memory so that I always “have it with me” to remind me to never quit… So that I never allow the thoughts of doubt and discouragement to take over the fire in my heart and my determination to become the person I’m destined to be!
