Aim High

Aim So High You'll Never Be Bored...

The
greatest waste
of our
natural resources
is the
number of
people
who never
achieve their
potential.
Get out
of that
slow lane.
Shift
into that
fast lane.
If you think
you can't,
you won't.
If you think
you can,
there's a
good chance
you will.
Even making
the effort
will make
you feel
like a new
person.
Reputations
are made
by searching
for things that
can 't be done
and doing them.
Aim low:
boring.
Aim high:
soaring.


Best of luck on your last audition for college today, buddy.
