Those are the three ingredients. The magic recipe. With those three things, the world is possible.
Optimism: There IS a solution.
Preparation: I have the tools to make the solution real.
Creativity: I have the ability use those tools to build anything I can imagine.
Keep all three as watchwords. Without belief that something is possible, nothing is. If you believe in failure, that’s what you’ll get. If you always believe you can win, you’ll be right some, even most of the time. If you always believe you’ll lose, you’ll be right 100% of the time.
Always be preparing. You don’t have to know what you’re preparing for. Save money, read books, expand your network, work out. Be ready.
And then solve the puzzle. The solution is there.
There truly isn’t much else you need to know. Seasons may change. But you’ll have those three things, and combined with a little juice, you can do anything.
