    Platitudes are easy. Success takes WORK. Work is hard.

    Do it anyway... do the work.

    What most say is that it all comes down to YOU and your attitude.
    I've found that to be true.

    #34 by Plato is especially high impact, at least for me.

    On the path of life the trail often splits. One direction is easy, the other harder. Always accept the challenge and take the harder path. That's where the greatest rewards are found. Risk nothing - win nothing. Anyone can take the easy road, but what fun is that?
    We have done so much, with so little, for so long....We can now do anything, with nothing, forever.

    I never considered Aristotle Onassis a leader but he was independent as hell and I liked that:

    "We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds."

    I have followed that since I first saw it.
