My Bandolino (son) wants to get a small tattoo at the nape of his neck in the shape of an infinity symbol that says, "Fear is a Choice" [quote from Will Smith in the movie After Earth -- who knew the fresh prince would get so eloquent. :-)]
"Enthusiasm" is one of my favorite words. I define it as energetic passion with a smile. It is the word I wake up to in my head. I was thrilled and moved to find it has its root in the Greek language, literally it means "the God (entheo) inside (iasm)".
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too, can become great. When you are seeing to bring big plans to fruition, it is important with whom you regularly associate. Hang out with friends who are like-minded and who are also designing purpose-filled lives. Similarly be that kind of a friend for your friends ~Mark Twain #quotes
