To arrive at a just estimate of a renowned man's character one must judge it by the standards of his time, not ours.

Bullet proof

When you have a clear idea of exactly where you’re going, and you’re committed to it, you are bullet proof. No person, no situation, no setback can stop you. You will find a way.

Those who are just drifting, can be swayed by the slightest breeze. It’s different when you have a determined, specific goal. You may get blown off course occasionally, but you can quickly re-gain your direction.

Nothing anyone can say will discourage you when you KNOW exactly where you’re going. No obstacle can stand in your way when your goal is in sight. Barriers disappear when passion and commitment take hold. The things that once held you back, start to propel you forward.

You have the power to do whatever you want. The trouble is, that power works against itself if it is not all aimed in the same direction. How far could you drive your car if the wheels weren’t all pointing the same way?

Get focused. Decide what’s important to you, and go for it. You’ve got what it takes. Your engine has plenty of horsepower. All you need to do is get your wheels all pointing the same way, and step on the accelerator.

— Ralph Marston
