It’s a sure thing that you’ll not finish if you don’t start.
An ancient proverb says, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” You have probably known people nearing the end of their life’s journey who looked back and said, “If only I had done things differently…. If only I had taken advantage of that opportunity when it came along.” Unfulfilled lives are filled with “if onlys.” They are the refrain of the timid souls whose lives were finished before they ever really got started. Life is filled with many opportunities — for great successes and spectacular failures. It is up to you to seize the initiative, to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way. You are condemned to a life of mediocrity — unless you get into action. Don’t delay; do it today!
“Your worth is not what you wear, but what you do.” “No one can believe in you until you believe in yourself.” “Take care of yourself, you are your most valuable asset.” “Diamonds know their value, that is why they hide deep where few can find them.”

You would get a different answer from each person you ask and of course, there will be a debate among those who give opposing answers.
