“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
“We all have those lies, large and small, that we tell ourselves to justify why we do the things we do. The reality is, however, that every single decision you make is either helping you or hurting you. There really isn’t much gray area there.” – Patrice C. Washington

“The hardest thing to get over when you’re trying to live a dream is the possibility that you might fail or that it might not be for you. But the truth is, that’s not the worst thing in the world. If you fail or find out that you don’t like something, then you just got closer to finding out what you’re truly meant for.” – Ashley C. Ford
“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
“Write down your top 10 goals. Then pin that piece of paper up next to your bed. Every night when you go to sleep, read those goals to yourself. And every morning when you wake up, read them again. Soon you’ll find yourself dreaming about your goals at night, and motivated to achieve them during the day.”
“…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

“Sometimes people think the Golden Rule is just about how you treat others. Delve deeper, though, and you’ll see that it also defines how you should treat yourself.
You can’t possibly exercise the Golden Rule in your life if you’re treating yourself poorly. To love your neighbor as yourself, you must first love yourself.
And that’s essential, because self-love, melded with a desire to help others, creates the motivation and drive that can change the world.” – Geoffrey James
