Never feel sorry for yourself.
Never be envious or you're never going to have fun.
Avoid insecurity, and avoid negativity.
Disregard rejection and always move on.
When you feel fear, don't think "well i feel fear about this and therefore I shouldn't do it." Understand it's normal to feel fear. If you didn't feel these emotions at the times they arise, there might be something wrong with you. You can say you're not afraid of anything but nervousness and fear are natural human emotions. You're responsibility is to embrace it and use it as strength. Accept the probabilities of failure but be determined to make progress toward your goal even if the odds of success feel very low.
Live. Take calculated risks. Don't be afraid to fail. When someone tells you what you can't do, prove that you can. Everything comes together in the end and when it does you'll realize it in that moment. You'll look and smile and say to yourself that this is what it was all for. If you have a dream go for it. When there's adversity use it as motivation.
Anything great takes courage.
The things that you go through force you to be stronger. When you persevere you end up developing more strength.
Be excited to learn and progress.
Believe that you can and you're halfway there.
The biggest mistakes you can make are to listen to others too much and failing to believe in yourself. All your strength comes from inside of you.
When everything in your body and your mind are telling you to run and you don't, and you lean in, you become more powerful than your fear and the people and obstacles opposing you. If sometimes things don't work out, guess what, all you did was gain more callous and more strength and eventually, when it's what's meant to be, you will lean in again and you will succeed.
Over time your ideas, desires, plans, and circumstances will change, and you will too. Embrace this evolution. We're all meant to change. We're all meant to improve. If you lack progression, you are dying by default.
It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to has power over you.
Be courageous. Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is feeling fear and doing it anyway.
Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship. Keep moving and keep growing.
Without commitment to your goals there will be no start and without consistency there will be no finish.
If you fall nine times, get up ten.
Keep working, keep striving, and never give up.
Today is the youngest you're ever going to be. You've got to live like it, you've got to live young every day. You've got to treat each day as if it's your last. One of these days, unbeknownst to you, will actually be your last. Don't procrastinate, don't remain complacent, and don't settle for doing what you don't want to do.
You must do the things you think you cannot do.
You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world and you have to do it every day.
When you grow up you get told the world is the way it is and that your purpose is to live inside this world and avoid bashing into the walls too much - but this is a limited life.
Don't live a limited life. Life can be much broader and better once you discover the fact that what we call life was made by people not much more different than you. You can influence it and you can change it. You can mold it. You can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you'll never be the same.
You have to speak what you seek until you see what you're saying. What you think and what you believe is what you will become. Your thoughts, actions, and passions now are manifested in your future self.
We want to see a future in the world where more and more people live by their own standards instead of those set by society which we've been taught to live and think by.
If you're goal is to build a wall, you need not try to build the biggest, baddest wall. Instead, today, lay the most perfectly laid brick - you do this every day and soon you'll have your wall.
Be hesitant to embrace conformity. While everyone goes north and south, you go east and west. Don't do what they expect you to do.
That's how winners win and great people become great, they do what people don't expect them to do.
Weigh your options, know your worth, take your time, and get what you deserve.
It is not our intention to simply empower you. It's to remind you that you have power and to create the conditions in which you can exercise it.
You get to a point in life where you can't allow others to set your agenda. You set your own agenda. If somebody is trying to label you, stick you in a corner, or push back on your point of view, don't allow it, do not tolerate it. It may be because they have an image of you that's different from your own, but only you know who you are and what you can do.
The real fruition of life is to do the things which you have said you wish to do.
The only way we change society and move forward is by coming up with new ideas. When things get difficult don't backup, lean in. Read the situation, and if you know that what you're doing is true and authentic and you believe it is right, you move forward with it and the world moves forward with you - because of you.
People are often unreasonable, irrational, emotional, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind people may accuse you of being selfish. Be kind anyway. If you are successful you will come across unfaithful people, but succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people will betray and deceive you. Be honest anyway. When you spend years creating, others can destroy it overnight. Create anyway. If you find serenity and happiness people will be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. Give the best you have and it may never be enough, but give your best anyway. In the end it's between you and God, it was never between you and them anyway.
If you go through those instances of not having a lot and knowing what the value of hard work and courage can bring you, you'll never take things for granted.
Always strive for excellence in life and never leave room for mediocrity.
Set your standards high and you will be rewarded.
To live is the rarest thing the world - most people exist and that is all.
It was so nice to find your site yesterday, in many ways everything I read shimmered with love and reflected the last thirty years of my development.
Thankyou so much for sharing who you are.
Maybe you could consider some form of collaboration with the attached site-content, the ‘World’ needs practical help and it needs it NOW!
The creators of our existence have been universally supplied, and you can’t beat that, we need to let go and flow with it, like a leaf on the water. Fantastic read
