All good ideas arrive by chance. Chance happens to all, but to turn chance to
account is the gift of few. Chance can define our lives in important ways. Our
lives improve only when we take chances and the first and most difficult risk we
can take is to be honest with ourselves. Letís take chances, make mistakes,
that's how we grow. Pain nourishes our courage; we have to fail in order to
practice being brave.
|In the end we
only regret the chances we didnít take.
When we take those chances, we can achieve greatness; whereas if we go
conservative, we would never know. I truly believe that what doesn't kill us,
makes us stronger. Even if we fail, learning and moving on is sometimes the best
thing that could happen to us.
have learned that there is no chance, no destiny, and no fate that can
circumvent or hinder nor control the firm resolve of a determined soul. I have
also learned that if we don't design our own life plan, chances are, we fall
into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for us? Not much.
The chances of
each of us coming into existence are infinitesimally small, and even
though we shall all die someday, we should count ourselves
fantastically lucky to get our decades in the sun.
haven't lived a perfect life. I have regrets. But that's from a lifetime of
taking chances, making decisions, and trying not to be frozen. The only thing
that I can do with my regrets is understand them and keep on going and the
chances are, I will stumble on something, perhaps when I am least expecting it.
I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down
If we think about it, the chances of each of us coming into existence are
infinitesimally/exceedingly small, and even though we shall all die someday, we
should count ourselves fantastically lucky to get our decades in the sun!

Good planning is
important. I've also regarded a sense of humor as one of the
most important things on a big expedition. When you're in a
difficult or dangerous situation, or when you're depressed about
the chances of success, someone who can make you laugh eases the
tension. Edmund Hillary
