Ninotchka, Leon (1939)
Almost all of the world-class athletes and other peak performers are visualizers. They see it , they feel it, they experience it before they actually do it. They began with the end in mind. You can do it in every area of your life. Before performance, a sales presentation, a difficult confrontation, or the daily challenge of meeting a goal, see it clearly, vividly, relentlessly, over and over again. Create an internal "comfort zone''. Then, when you get into the situation, it isn't foreign. It doesn't scare you.

Funny like I'm a clown ? I amuse you ?
Tommy De Vito, Goodfellas (1990)
Laughing at our mistakes can lengthen our own life. Laughing at someone else's can shorten it.
There is only one way to happiness, and that is to cease worrying things which are beyond the power of our will.
Within us all there are wells of thought and dynamos of energy which are not suspected until emergencies arise. Then oftentimes we find that it is comparatively simple to double or treble our former capacities and to amaze ourselves by the results achieved.
