“ We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same. ”
Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it.
There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don't care who gets the credit.
If you start by promising what you don't even have yet, you'll lose your desire to work towards getting it.
