We are not born with courage, but neither are we born with fear.  Maybe some of our fears are brought on by your own experiences, by what someone has told you, by what you’ve read in the papers. Some fears are valid, like walking alone in a bad part of town at two o’clock in the morning. But once you…

Perseverance is about as important to achievement as gasoline is to driving a car. Sure, there will be times when you feel like you’re spinning your wheels, but you’ll always get out of the rut with genuine perseverance. Without it, you won’t even be able to start your engine. The opposite of perseverance is procrastination Perseverance means you never quit….

As the wheel of life continues its constant turning, all human emotions appear, disappear, and appear…

They have an amazing four- part philosophy, and here is the first part: ants never quit.  That’s a good philosophy. If they’re headed somewhere and you try to stop them; they’ll look for another way.
