Shoot for the Moon

Then, try to harness even a little of that enthusiasm into your own quest to achieve your goals and dreams. True, with your busy life you may not attain everything you desire immediately. But the results are bound to be better than the status quo! After all, as Les Brown reminds us, it’s always better to "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars!"
