Great Men Simply Do As They Planned

“Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not…”

– Professor Huxley

You can do whatever you want to while you’re here. Whatever dream you have can be willed into existence. Few do that thing, though.

Most let unimportant distractions rob them of their destiny.

Most quit when an obstacle stands in their way or they initially fail.

Most slide into being who they are told they are rather than moving the world to fit who they know they are or who they want to be.

Most see the contrary evidence, the failures, the fact that it hasn’t been done by someone like them rather than seeing the positive evidence, the fact that they have all they need to will this grand idea into truth.


The simplicity of greatness is that it’s merely doing what you planned to do.


Doing what you set out to do.

Accomplishing even the smallest tasks, because you said you would do them. This is what separates the great life from the mediocre, not talent, but will.

Not birthright, but persistence. You don’t even have to believe you can do what you want to do, you just have to bloody well do it.

No one, no thing can hold you back, that’s a myth.

The only obstacle is laziness, a weak will, a soft constitution.
