“Your mind, while blessed with permanent memory, is cursed with lousy recall.  Written goals provide clarity.  By documenting your dreams, you must think about the process of achieving them.”
– James Whitcomb Riley

How do you live up to your dreams and aspirations?  We all experience setbacks and problems in our lives.  But despite this, we must press on.

The objective is to press on no matter what the circumstances.  We must carry on no matter what happens.  Here are a few good reasons why you should always press on:

• Pressing on gives you strength.
• You find solutions you did not think of.
• Your situation improves when you keep working on it.
• Other people produce new technology and new solutions for you.

There is no “one way”.  By pressing on you apply more pressure to your side’s “tug of war” of life. That’s right; life is not fair.  It is an ongoing “tug of war” between different interests.  Therefore, you want to apply as much pressure on your side as possible.

It is often incorrect to see a situation as a game where there is one clear winner and one clear loser.  Most scenarios in life are a game that we play over and over.  In this process, how much you win and lose depends on how much pressure you can apply to your side of the rope.

Some people and things that can help provide pressure to your side of the rope include:

• Family
• Friends
• Lawyers
• Public image
