Find Your Courage

“If you are stuck and lost right now, and you are wondering what you’re supposed to do with your life next, I can tell you only this: You are supposed to find your courage.” – Elizabeth Gilbert

The Journey of Life

“It’s good to work hard, but you’ve got to learn how to play hard, too, so that you can stay in balance. I heard somebody say, “It’s not that life is so short, it’s that we wait so long to begin living.” If we want to truly enjoy the journey of life, we have to take time to stop and smell the roses. Do you appreciate the people you love? Do you hug your children before you leave each day and give your spouse a kiss? When was the last time you called your parents to tell them how much you love them? That’s how we can enjoy the journey.” – Joel Osteen

Maybe This Year

“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives…not looking for flaws, but for potential.” ― Ellen Goodman

 

Your Best Destiny

“That “something” you seek is God’s best life for you. It is what you dream about in the corners of your imagination. It is everything good and right for you and your future. It is what I call your best destiny, and it means being the best you that you can possibly be. Your destiny is within your reach if you are willing to risk a few steps into the unknown.” -Wintley Phipps

The More Things You Try

Ultimately, success is all about taking your shot, over and over again. Sometimes you may win, sometimes you will definitely lose, but the more things you try, the more chances you have of succeeding. Put the power of numbers on your side. Take as many shots as you can. There’s no guarantee of success, but when you don’t take a shot, there’s a definite guarantee of failure. – Jeff Haden

SAY YES

steps

Say “yes” to as much as possible, but make sure it means something. Don’t be the person whose “yes” means “maybe” or “depending on how I’m feeling that day” or “if something better doesn’t come up” or “sure, but it’ll probably be late.” Say “yes” and mean it. Say “yes,” and throw yourself into the experiences it brings. Say “yes,” and hold yourself accountable for the follow-through. Say “yes,” and figure out how to get it done. If that means being more selective about your “yes,” so be it. Because, in the wise words of Amy Poehler, “What else are we going to do? Say no? Say no to an opportunity that may be slightly out of our comfort zone? Quiet our voice because we are worried it’s not perfect? I believe great people do things before they are ready.” Kelsey Manning

You Will Not Sink

“…you have so much beneath the surface. Years of layers and lifetimes of experience and strengths to call on — skills of expanding consciousness that you didn’t even know you had. You will not sink… It may be hard to believe right now, but not only will it be okay, not only will you get through and over this, you will thrive again.”- Danielle LaPorte
