“If you ever want to see anybody miserable, see a successful man. …
“The only time he ever had any fun was when he was trying to be something. He knew he wasn’t yet, but he was going to be.
“Happiness is the overcoming of obstacles toward a known goal. …
“Every successful man discovers this, by the way. He discovers it with horror—that the day he becomes something, he knows that those years of struggle, which he cursed, were themselves the adventure. The struggle was the adventure. The becoming something was not the adventure.”
“To some will come a time when change itself is beauty, if not heaven.”
Poet, Edwin Arlington Robinson
Your action for today is to think of something you’ve been meaning to change and take a step toward doing so.
