Most people set the aim too low, for they are afraid of failing. They do not understand how life works, they believe that failing is what happens when you set a certain aim and do not achieve it. To the contrary, Frank said, failing is what happens when you set a mediocre target and you achieve it and you discover that what you have obtained means nothing to you. Failing, he said, is what happens when you set a monetary target and you obtain it and forfeit your life to protecting that worth. Then you stop moving forward, then you are dead and pretending you are still alive, you may be pretending well but you are dead and it is very difficult to bring somebody dead back to life. If you do not move you are dead, if you move you leave the known for the unknown. The course you take is yours, the places you visit are yours, only when you move you are alive. The unknown makes you more alive. The more alive you are the more you are able to bring others to life, for life can only be understood by imitation, not by rationalization, Frank said.
