“The Potato Peeler” makes two fundamental points.
First,the individual determines his or hers success,if they pay the price.
Second,America allows you to become what you dared to think,imagine and believe.Your development is limited only by your imagination,persistence and passion.
The essence of “The Potato Peeler” can be compressed into ONE sentence:
“What you have at this very moment has absolutely nothing to do with what you could become”
Success in life does NOT depend on tangibles,like money,grants,scholarships,state of the art facilities,and so on.What determines success are intangibles,like thinking big,show tenacity,perseverance and dedication,display stamina and be willing to suffer and to sacrifice.There are NO shortcuts to success.
To succeed in life you need to discover “the purpose in your life”,then fall madly in love with it,and relentlessly pursue it regardless of the resources on hand.”
