From Denny: What can I say? I can seriously identify with the first quote by Einstein. There is a lot of opposition out there in the world from fearful folks. Mediocre minds are not necessarily people with little intellect but often are suffering from a low emotional intelligence and spiritual training, truly a lack of wisdom of how to interact appropriately with others before jumping to conclusions. People often fight a new vision, or even a suggestion, before actually hearing it described fully. They make assumptions without a full understanding, dismissing it quickly.
Henry Ford is accurate in his comment that once you stop yourself inwardly your progress outwardly suffers too. Our inner self really is the engine that drives our lives toward success, mediocrity or failure.
Who knew Goethe could be inspirational? :) He has a very good point that the journey is to be cherished for it changes us forever; the achieved goal suddenly pales in insignificance.
This Japanese Proverb addresses mediocrity in our vision and yet counsels us not to be rash in our decisions.
Napolean Hill, another favorite motivator, refocuses us on our basic instinct of desire and how to differentiate and isolate it from other emotions in order to benefit.
* Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. - Albert Einstein
* Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right. - Henry Ford
* What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. - Goethe
* Vision without action is daydream. Action without vision is nightmare. - Japanese Proverb
* Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything. - Napoleon Hill
