The people that really succeed in the world are the people who look for the circumstances they want. And, if they can't find them, they make them.
The lure of the distant and the difficult can be deceptive. The great opportunity in your life is where you are right now. Properly perceived, every situation can become an opportunity for you.
Your destiny isn't a matter of chance, it's a matter of choice. It's not something you wait for, but rather something you achieve with effort.
You're surrounded by opportunity, but things won't turn up in this world until you turn them up.
