You're going to have a lot of results in your life; some you'll like, some you won't. You'll consider some to be joyful successes, while others will be painful failures. Whatever the case, at the center of all of them will be YOU.
You may not be the cause for either the success or the failure, but both of them begin and end with you. They begin with what you WANT and end with what you GET.
Or put another way, they begin with what YOU want and end with what YOU get.
So, ultimately, it all depends on you. It depends on how clear you are with what you want, and how much you're willing to go out to get it. It depends on how you adapt to early results. Do you stay the course when you need to keep going, and do you adjust course as things around you change? (Or do you zig when you're supposed to zag and zag when you're supposed to zig?)
You're the Captain of your own ship. Never take that role lightly (or too seriously)
Keep the light on!
