“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the one who’ll decide where you’ll go. Oh the places you’ll go.” – Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss)
“I feel that luck is preparation meeting opportunity.” – Oprah Winfrey (Billionaire)
Tomorrow, you have an opportunity. The sun will rise (even if you can’t see it). Birds will sing (some will poop on your car). Something will be available you have never experienced. There will be a place, small in the universe, where you have never been.
Step out into the light, take the right at the fork in the road. Make endorphins. Create change. The world is a blank slate, and you have all the tools you need to grow just a little bit… tomorrow. There is no limit to your mind, and none to your imagination. You simply have to turn the switch, and begin. See, there’s always a catch.
For most of my life, I considered myself to be a person of very little imagination. In fact, I thought so even through the writing of my first two books. Then I finished them, and people began to tell me they aren’t quite like anyone else’s books. So, while I may be a Bear of Very Little Imagination, I have learned to take it as far as it can go.
“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Eliot
“Screw the fear.” – Jo Leigh
Opportunities are scary, stressful, horrid things. But, if you can manage to be more excited than fearful … oh, the places you’ll go.
