“Would I be happy with myself, if I was there floundering out there in the water, about to die? Would I be happy with myself and my life? And its become the defining question of my life. If I'm offered to do something and I say no to it, later on, as I'm on my way out of this lifetime, am I going to be happy with myself? Am I going to be pleased that I said no to that opportunity?”
“You have to ask yourself, ‘Can I have the self-discipline to add a half-hour of sitting down and being with my calling per day?'”
