The secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it
-Earl of Beaconsfield
The man who makes a success of an important venture never waits for the crowd. He
strikes out for himself. It takes nerve, it takes a great lot of grit; but the man
that succeeds has both. Anyone can fail. The public admires the man who has enough
confidence in himself to take a chance. These chances are the main things after all.
The man who tries to succeed must expect to be criticized. Nothing important was
ever done but the greater number consulted previously doubted the possibility. Success
is the accomplishment of that which most people think can't be done.
