“Michelangelo once said that the greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that our aim is actually too low and we reach it.
Most often we set a goal we think we can achieve.
There is something in every one of us that is greater than the circumstances we are facing.
Today let’s pause for just a moment now and ponder – what would be a goal I would set if I didn’t believe I could fail?
So what if you stretch for the sun and you hit the moon? Go ahead and reach!”

What do you think? Is this idea that everyone can achieve greatness inspiring to you? Or do you think it is an example of romanticized optimism?
Where do your goals fit in the spectrum? Within your reach, completely beyond your reach, or somewhere in the middle?
