Chapter IX – Part 1

Aged 89 Granny became the oldest person in Britain to pass the advanced Latin-American ballroom-dancing examination, and aged 90 she became the oldest person to hit a hole in one at golf. Granny was 99 when she died. Shortly before that, she had written to me to say that the previous ten years had been the best of her life. That same year, on her way round the world on a cruise ship, she had been left behind in Jamaica with only her swimming costume on. She had even read “A Brief History of Time” (something which I’ve never been able to manage!). She never stopped learning. Her attitude was, you’ve got one go in life, so make the most of it.

Sir Richard Branson about his grand-mother

Success is what you attract by the person you become.

No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.

Your life only gets better, when you get better.

There is always a philosophy for lack of courage.

It matters not what a person is born, but who they choose to be.

We don’t see things the way they are. We see things the way we are.

A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.
