    I love the quote “The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.” A lot of people want “the life” but want to sleep and watch TV more.

    Thank you Joel for making these quotes from Robert available. He is a great inspiration. These words of wisdom remind me of another one of my favorite sayings “Perfection is the lowest standard of achievement, Doing is the highest”. I am a reformed perfectionist who seldom accomplished anything, I am now a doer!
