There are so many angles that it's easy to become entangled and discouraged. That's also why we need to have courage so that we won't be buried or beaten by the things that threaten and intimidate. It's simply a matter of enduring what we cannot change. In doing so, courage arises and we are often surprising even to ourselves. Yet how many of us are willing to die this kind of death until we are reborn, and no longer captive to the norm? That's what I ask when I hear so many bask in the glow of others' success. It's okay to applaud them but we shouldn't defraud ourselves.

Take a moment to take the matter that is most pressing, and apply yourself to discern its lesson. In doing so, barriers drop and opportunities crop unsolicited. This, in part, is how "they did it."

You will if you can. It's all about the demand you make on yourself. Otherwise you will dream yourself to death, only to discover that every other person who eventually acheived stayed committed even when the breeze blew them over. The only difference is that they refused to surrender.
