S:1018 Quote: Personal Power

(Quotes are capsules of information, reinforcement or enlightenment.)

 

Up to a point a man’s life is shaped by environment, heredity, and movements and changes in the world about him; then there comes a time when it lies within his grasp to shape the clay of his life into the sort of thing he wishes to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune, or the quirks of fate. Everyone has it within his power to say, this I am today, that I shall be tomorrow. The wish, however, must be implemented by deeds.

A character in The Walking Drum, a novel by author Louis L’Amour

 

Coaching Point: What are you today and what do you wish to be tomorrow? What resources will assist you?
