    Nice words of encouragement you have there. I agree to that quote, you need to make your own mark so that you will be known with that identity and achieve something beneficial, even once in your lifetime.

    Wow! this is the path most of the visionaries have taken,most of us take the beaten path its the brave hearts who have passion and desire to go where no one ever had.there are many stories and their heroes continue to enthrall us through various generations and which paves the path for more such visionaries and brave hearts.

    Some words of encouragement from my side

    "When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us."
    ~ Alexander Graham Bell

      And it's interesting...

      Most 'gurus' would tell you to NOT reinvent the wheel, not be creative, and follow the tried and true methods to earn lots of money.

      There's a place for both, but visionaries are inspiring...

    Great quote! Another marketer once said "don't try and stand out from the crowd. go where there is no crowd, and you will stand out immediately".

    Here are a few of my favorites:

    Heights reached and kept by great men, were not attained by sudden flight;
    but they, while their companions slept, kept toiling upwards through the night.
    ~Disraeli (I think)

    Success is where preparation meets opportunity.
    ~Bobby Unser

    Showing up is 80% of success.
    ~Woody Allen

    Now that you got me started, I can't seem to stop! LOL!

    A few more:
    Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
    Willing is not enough; we must do.
    ~Goethe

    Well done is better than well said.
    ~Benjamin Franklin

    Pay no attention to critics. There has never been a statue erected in honor of a critic.
    ~Siberius

    Ok, I'll (try to) stop now.

    "
    True hope dwells on the possible, even when life seems to be a plot written by someone who wants to see how much adversity we can overcome.
    True hope responds to the real world, to real life; it is an active effort.

    If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down. "

    Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you.

    Remember too that it will be a lonely path, full of uncertainty and unforseen challenges but to be a pioneer and venture into new territory, opening the way for others will always bring its rewards.
