* Glossary:

"If you can believe it, you can achieve it!"

Arnold Schwarzenegger followed the example of another person and became the hulky picture in his mind's eye ("I want to be like him!"):

In chess terms, pick a famous favorite player (beginners should select an old master born before WWI like Adolph Anderssen, Siegbert Tarrasch, Rudolf Spielmann, Samuel Reshevsky, etc. etc.) and study that master's ANNOTATED games w/emphasis on 1.e4/e5, 1.d4/d5, 1.c4/c5, 1.Nf3/Nf6, g3/g6 games. Focus on endgames just as much as openings. Endgame knowledge continuously turns a worse position into a draw, and an even position into a win. Endgames are like a racehorse that gives a final kick with a nose for the wire, finishing stronger than the field. Endgame knowledge will definitely improve your points in the standings.

Or, maybe not says an unbeliever:

Our attitude determines our altitude. Have a cheerful, positive attitude and AIM HIGH, go far, but never forget those who helped you along the way.

It's important for young people to experience the world outside their daily circle -- get exposure, to realize that the possibilities are broad but the commitment to excellence becomes narrow. Have you road a train, plane, bus, and ferryboat? Road a bicycle across the state, or a kayak down river start to finish? Have you milked a cow on a farm and fed the chickens? Checked product on an assembly line? Helped a mad customer at the service desk? Made a delivery in rush hour traffic? Unloaded a shipment? Washed dishes, and/or cleaned someone else's bathroom? Different experiences provide perspective, and personal motivation to go for what makes you happiest, securest. Of course, one must sacrifice many other opportunities to achieve what one wants at the top of their list. You cannot run with the wolfpack and become head buffalo. Gotta choose a path a the behest of others.

Dedication to chess won't take most of us very far in this real world business economy. Chess ability probably won't get you a raise or a promotion (it's more likely to get you fired if you cannot control your impulses to play while on assignment), but you will meet different people you'd never ever meet otherwise through chess. The average fellow probably should limit his chess time (school, work, religion, friends, family, community, commitments come first) and keep the game FUN. Some regular study will improve the amount of FUN you receive. If you don't study, you will lose more often than not when playing those who have studied.

Chess is a universal, world-wide game with versatile mediums on and off the internet for the individual (young and old), partner, or group, for any language, education, race, religion, status, creed, etc. Chess can be an exceptional friend to the poor, lonely, the isolated, the disenfranchised, introverted, and a club for the extroverted. Chess can be played w/a human(s), a travel book of puzzles, a video lesson, or blitz on a cell phone while stuck waiting in line. Robertie, Pandolfini, Howell, Hooper, Evans, Albert, Snape, Silman, Smirnov, Smyslov, Shereshevsky, Van Perlo, Lars Bo Hansen, and/or Karsten Muller's endgame courses will provide hours of thought. Let chess be joyful entertainment, not self-imposed agony. "Win with humility, lose with grace, and do both with dignity". How you conduct yourself matters most.

"If you can believe it, you can achieve it!" But, at what cost to you and your loved ones? Play often, study often, improve your game, but don't become obsessed with chess at the expense of obligations and others dear to you.
