bird“Obstacles can’t stop you. Problems can’t stop you. Most of all, other people can’t stop you. Only you can stop you.” 
– J. Gitomer

I have seen the truth in this quote over and over again.  Yet I suspect some who read it see the untruth in it more than the truth.

Another way of saying it is: “fortune favors the bold”.

Then there is that song… “I hope that you dance…”

Or, “when you wish upon a star”.  

Or, “forward, forward, always forward”.

Really they are all saying the same thing.

Reflect deeply.  Choose wisely.  Look past the superficial self.  Look to your true Self… beyond dogma, beyond greed, beyond fear, beyond weakness, beyond fatigue, beyond parental inner voices of the superego, beyond smallness, beyond grandiosity, beyond superficial ego, beyond need of recognition, beyond pride, beyond all conditioning.

You are great.  Your domain is the universe.  Live it.

After your physical body is gone and your true Self remains – when you are standing all alone at the ‘Pearly Gates’ – what would you do now that would make you then stand up tall, stare Saint Peter right in the eye, and say, “I did what I believed in.” ?

Decide what you truly believe in.  Then ‘just do it’.
