Most people are beaten before they start. They think they are going to
encounter obstacles, and they look for them, instead of for means to
overcome them. The result is that they increase their obstacles
instead of diminishing them. Have you ever undertaken something that
you thought would be hard, but afterwards found it to be easy? That is
the way a great many times The things that look difficult in advance,
turn out to be easy of conquest, when once encountered. So start out
on your journey with the idea that the road is going to be clear for
you, and that if it is not, you will clear the way. All people that
have amounted to anything, say 40 or even 100 years ago, have cleared
their way and they did not have the expert assistance that you will
have today.

The one great keynote of success is to do whatever you have decided
on. Don’t be turned from your path, but resolve that you are going to
accomplish what you set out to do. Don’t be frightened at a few
setbacks, for they cannot stop the individual that is determined–the
individual that knows in their heart that success is only bought by
tremendous strong will, by concentrated and whole-hearted effort.
