Most people never get there. They’re afraid or unwilling to demand enough of themselves and they take the easy road, the path of least resistance. But struggling and suffering, as I now saw it, were the essence of a life worth living.

You’re denying yourself an extraordinary trip.

"You can take control of your life, of your future. Look at what you’re doing now. Is it getting you where you want to be? If not, what are you going to do about it. Imagine, just for a moment, that you can live your life to the fullest and be all you ever wanted to be and do all the things you ever wanted do. The choice is up to you. You can continue to do what you’re doing, resign yourself to a lifetime of diminished expectations, or you can grab the opportunity to be the best you can be."
