Life has taught me that slow and steady do actually win the race.
Don’t try to run ahead of your shadow. Don’t try to grab it all at once. Don’t even try to think you can always predict the future correctly. Stick to doing your best at all times, reevaluating your current situation and making decision on how best you can make progress.
Live happily from where you are now, not where you were yesterday or want to be tomorrow. Things always work out- just look back and see the evidence.
