You must do the thing you think you cannot do
“A life spent chasing other people’s approval is a life spent
on a pointless rollercoaster of emotional high and lows,
without ever knowing yourself.”
Imagination is more important than knowledge
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Don’t follow the crowd, let the crowd follow you.
You are the C.E.O. of your life.
“Many miles, many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts, many years have unraveled
Leading up to today
I have no regrets
There’s nothing to forget
All the pain was worth it
Not running from the past
I tried to do what’s best
I know that I deserve it”
Madonna’s “I Deserve It”
“Confidence, like art, never comes from having all the answers;
it comes from being open to all the questions.”
Earl Gray Stevens
When one door closes another door opens;
but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door,
that we do not see the ones which open for us.
Alexander Graham Bell
Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb.
That’s where the fruit is.
H. Jackson Browne
Accept everything about yourself – I mean everything,
You are you and that is the beginning and the end – no apologies, no regrets.
Put yourself in a state of mind where you say to yourself,
“Here is an opportunity for you to celebrate like never before,
my own power, my own ability to get myself to do whatever is necessary.”
There are some people who live in a dream world,
and there are some who face reality;
and then there are those who turn one into the other.
“You never miss your water, until your well runs dry.” – Ashley Edmondson
“We are most effective when we’re being ourselves.”
“Far better to try something and fail, than try nothing and succeed!”
“success is 99% made up of failures”
“The greatest way to do our thing has yet to be discovered!”
“The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking
what one does.” -J.M. Barrie
“Winners never quit and quitters never win.”
“Life is not a dress rehearsal, it’s the main event.”
Far Better It Is
To Dare Mighty Things
To Win Glorious Triumphs
Even Though Checkered With Failure
Than To Live In That Grey Twilight
That Knows Neither Victory Nor Defeat
That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing itself is changed, but that our power to do is increased.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“If you are never scared, embarrassed or hurt, it
means you never take chances.”
– Julia Soul
