If you have not reached this plateau in your life, then you are still growing and still searching.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. ~ Buddha

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan

It’s amazing how many things we talk ourselves out of during the course of our days simply because of the fears of what might go wrong – or what someone might be able to say. It reminds me of one of the passages in my book that speaks of the perception that the most valuable real estate on earth are cemeteries – because lying there alongside their owners are all the ‘could dos’ and ‘should dos’… never to see the light of day. In other words, it wasn’t making the shot that made Michael Jordan so special. It was always the fact that he was always willing to take the shot… regardless of the outcome.
