The seed is put in the ground, and earth and air and water are placed around it. Does the seed become the earth, or the air, or the water? No. It becomes a plant, it develops after the law of its own growth, assimilates the air, the earth, and the water, converts them into plant substance and grows into a plant.

Surprisingly, stress doesn’t necessarily make us likely to indulge in bad habits; when we’re anxious or tired, we fall back on our habits, whether bad or good. 

For this reason, it’s all the more important to try to shape habits mindfully, so that when we fall back on them at times of stress, we’re following activities that make our situation better, not worse.

Don’t be afraid of bad ideas.

If you want to make a dream a reality and are looking for ways to do so, don’t limit the ideas you generate. 

By trying to immediately weed out bad ideas, all you’ll get is stuck. Instead, write down every idea that pops into your head, even the wildest and most implausible ones. 

When you read back through them, you’ll probably find that you’ve created a few gems.

There’s no single path to success and, while every person’s journey looks different, you can still take inspiration and advice from those who came before you. 
Their success stories will expand your horizons, teach you how to put yourself on the right track and compel you to keep trying no matter what.
