Four things come not back: the spoken word, the spent arrow, the past, and the neglected opportunity.

Beyond reason

It’s completely reasonable to get discouraged when things are not going your way. And yet, as reasonable as it may be, getting discouraged and staying discouraged won’t do you any good.

Fortunately, you don’t always have to be reasonable. You can choose to meet every setback not with discouragement, but with hope and positive passion and enthusiasm for moving forward.

There’s always a next step that you can take, so take it. Sure, that next step may not work out, and yet it is infinitely better than giving up.

Life’s greatest successes will often defy reason. Even when there is no logical, reasonable way, there is a way.

Your mind and its reasoning ability are amazingly powerful. And yet, there is more to life than just reason.

When you must, go beyond reason and feel the positive driving passion of your purpose. Feel the passion, persist through every challenge, and bring your dream to life.
