my new dawn

strength of conviction

Posted on: May 4, 2012

Don’t listen to those who say, you are taking too big a chance.

Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today.

Most important, don’t listen when the little voice of fear inside you rears its ugly head and says. they are all smarter than you out there.

They’re more talented, they’re taller, blonder, prettier, luckier, and they have connections.

I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others by your own efforts, and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live, the chances are you’ll be a person worthy of your own respects.”

– Neil Simon (Playwright)
