You cannot reason with someone who is unreasonable. You have to speak to their emotions; their silent hopes and fears.


The men and women who accomplish things in life, good or bad, are all unreasonable. That is, they pay no attention to any reasons why they won’t achieve what they want to achieve. And so, they achieve it.

No doubts. No fears. No excuses. Go on, be unreasonable.


And if you don’t buy what I’m telling you, you are buying into all of your reasons instead.

“Well, that’s easy for you to say, sitting behind a type-writer, typing away … I live in the real world, and things aren’t like that …”

Yes, you are completely right, that is exactly how it is for you. And that is exactly how it will be for you, so long as you keep on buying into all of your reasons, all of your certainties about life – instead of stepping out into a place where you never know, you just never know …
