Don't refuse to go on an occasional wild goose chase - that's what wild geese are for!
All too often we won't attempt to follow our dreams because we have an idea, (often mistaken), that we won't succeed. Well, how do you know you will fail? Because someone said you''ll never do it?" Because you told yourself you can't?
Have confidence in yourself and follow your dreams - you will most likely be pleasantly surprised. Yes, you may fail, but if you don't try, you'll never know...
At the end of the rainbow there's happiness
And to find it how often I've tried,
But my life is a race, just a wild goose chase,
And my dreams have all been denied.
Why have I always been a failure?
What can the reason be?
I wonder if the world's to blame,
I wonder if it could be me?
- Always Chasing Rainbows by Joseph McCarthy
