Success through Small Adjustments

These words from Carnegie really hit home as I was evaluating my time in the business of literature–

Whenever you go out the door, draw your chin in, carry the crown of your head high, and fill your lungs to the utmost. Drink in the sunshine. Greet your friends with a smile and put soul into every handshake. Do not fear being misunderstood and do not waste a minute thinking about your enemies. Try to fix firmly in your mind what you would like to accomplish. Then, without veering off direction, you will move straight to the goal. Keep your mind on the great and honorable things you would like to do. Then, as the days go gliding away, you will find yourself unconsciously seizing upon the opportunities that are required for the fulfillment of your hopes.
