Go all the Way or Go Home

“Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star.”

—W. Clement Stone

As much as the above quote which comes in many variations when quoted by people has an iota of truth, it is problematic.

If internalized, the message simply says people should not focus on nothing but totally success in what they do and once they can reach a position better than a previous one, they are good and should be satisfied.

Wrong! In everything people do, people should focus on nothing but total success and should never settle alternatives or half way results. Its either we fail or we succeed or we reach were we want to go or we never reach where we want to go.
