Shoot for the moon

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”Norman Vincent Peale

Such a simple yet profound statement.

Shoot for the moon. Aim high in life, for there’s no point in playing it safe.

After all, you only have one life to live.

History teaches us that only those who dare greatly, who risk failing miserably, are the ones who achieve greatly.

Fortune favors the bold, the Romans would say.

This is what life is all about: assuming responsibility, mustering up the courage, and going after whatever it is you want will all your being.

Fight for your dreams. Do not go quietly into that good night.

There’s magic in you.

You are descended from warriors.

You can be what you want, have anything you want, as long as you do anything to get it.

Put your heart and soul into what makes you happy.

Shoot for the moon.

Aim towards the impossible.

Do the work.

Don’t question yourself when things go badly.

Fight and keep on fighting even when the odds are stacked against you.

Anything else is a lukewarm approach to life, and no one likes lukewarm.
