Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life–think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
An Idea is like a virus. Resilient. Highly Contagious. And even the smallest seed of an idea can grow. It can grow to define or destroy you.
Cobb – Inception
Do not be afraid of failure. Your worst idea that you execute, will always be better than a great idea that nobody tried to carry forward.
All achievements, all earned riches, have their beginning in an idea.
Traveling is my form of rebellion: I go where I want, do what I want, whenever I want. I’ve connected deeply with complete strangers and am continuously humbled by the beauty of nature. I’ve had my mind blown and thought, it doesn’t get any better than this.. over and over again. On the road I’ve had good times that became great memories and bad times that became great lessons. I’m ecstatic to say that I will never reach a point where there is nothing more for me to learn, but if I were to die tomorrow I would do it with smile on my face and a soul bursting with fond memories.

Adults are always asking little kids what they want to be when they grow up cause theyre looking for ideas.
It’s not about ideas, it’s about making ideas happen.
Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.
We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the ilussion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infintesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.
If I read a book that cost me $20 and I get one good idea, I’ve gotten one of the greatest bargains of all time.
Money spent on books is most likely money well spent!
