When you say you will try, you’re already starting the process with a small percentage of self-doubt.

It’s time to stop trying and start committing.

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
