睁大自己的眼睛Keeping Your Eyes Wide Open
A young man once asked his grandpa, "Grandpa, how is it that you’ve got so much in your life? You’re still full of energy but I’m already tired of struggling. How can I have the same enthusiasm that you have?"

When you meet up with challenges, welcome them. They’ll leave you wiser, stronger, and more capable than you were the day before. When you make a mistake, be grateful for the things it taught you. Determine to use that lesson to help you reach your goals.

Most important of all: never give up on yourself. The person that ends up a winner is the one who is determined to win.

未来尽在掌控The future can be anything we want to make
The future can be anything we want to make it!未来尽在掌控
I do not know who wrote those words, but I have always liked them as a reminder that the future can be anything we want to make it.

We are all in the position of the farmer. duanwenw.com If we plant a good seed, we reap a good harvest. If our seed is poor and full of weeds, we reap a useless crop. If we plant nothing at all, we harvest nothing at all.
I want the future to be better than the past. I don't want it contaminated by the mistakes and errors with which history is filled. We should all be concerned about the future because that is where we will spend the reminder of our lives.
The past is gone and static. Nothing we can do will change it. The future is before us and dynamic. Everything we do will effect it.
Each day will brings with it new frontiers, in our homes and in our businesses, if we will only recognize them. We are just at the beginning of the progress in every field of human endeavor.
