(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Facts are facts; the truth is the truth; what is so, is so.

But it may not always be what you wish. Sometimes you wish something were a certain way; you really want it to be just so. Then the facts intrude and you discover it s not the way you wish, and you feel crushed.

It doesn t have to be that way. Wish your wishes, dream your dreams, have your visions. Then, look at the facts to see if your wishes can be supported. Be unafraid to look at the truth.

If you don t include the facts, sooner or later they may crush you. If you ve hung on to your wishes too long without looking at the facts, and the facts win out, you can feel destroyed, an outcome far worse than simply not getting what you wish.
