JUST DON'T give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there's love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.
DO WHAT YOU CAN, with what you have, where you are.
FIND SOMETHING you love to do, and you'll never have to work a day in your life.
YOU'LL break the worry habit the day you decide you can meet and master the worst that can happen to you.
TO BE what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life.
WE CAN DO anything we want if we stick to it long enough.
I BELIEVE that if you think about disaster, you will get it. Brood about death and hasten your demise. Think positively and masterfully, with confidence and faith, and life becomes more secure, more fraught with action, richer in achievement and experience.
SOME PEOPLE are always grateful for the roses, while others always grumble at the thorns.
MAY WE NEVER let the things we can’t have, or don’t have, or shouldn’t have, spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. As we value our happiness let us not forget it, for one of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have.
LIFE IS NOT EASY for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.
THINK EXCITEMENT, talk excitement, act out excitement and you are bound to become an excited person. Life will take on a new zest, deeper interest, and greater meaning.
THERE IS no such thing as can’t and won’t. If you’re qualified, all it takes is a burning desire to accomplish, to make a change. Go forward, go backward. Whatever it takes! But you can’t blame other people or society in general. It all comes from your mind. When we do the impossible we realize we are special people.
THE GREATEST TEST
DO YOU know what the greatest test is? Do you still get excited about what you do when you get up in the morning?
YOU DO NOT merely want to be considered just the best of the best. You want to be considered the only one who does what you do.
MANY OF US do not realize what we believe when we look in the mirror. Many of us do not see our own image but someone else’s image that we feel we must please, thinking it might be of value. But there is no value or glory playing second fiddle to someone else. You cannot live your life with someone else’s image. It means self-destruction; you become your worst enemy.
You are your worst enemy when you want to be perfect. You become fearful of making a mistake, so you don’t assert yourself; therefore you cannot achieve happiness in life. You cannot gain friendship that way or in any negative way where you symbolically walk around on your knees trying to get attention by trying to please everybody.
Friendship begins with you; you can’t be a friend to others unless you are a friend to yourself. What is equally important is that you can’t be a friend to everybody. We all see things differently. That is the way it should be; and because of that, it is inevitable that we will make enemies with people who violently disagree with us. If we firmly and honestly feel that our cause is right, we should not be afraid of making enemies but should try to maintain harmony.There is an old Chinese proverb that says, "Just as tall trees are known by their shadows, so are good men known by their enemies." By far you are your worst enemy either when through fear and indecision you live to please someone else, or when you refuse to live at all because you are fearful of making a mistake.
YOU CAN'T hit a home run unless you step up to the plate. You can’t catch fish unless you put your line in the water. You can’t reach goals if you don’t try.
LIFE'S under no obligation to give us what we expect.
1. Be sure of your final destination, in case you are going the wrong way.
2. Be loving to those who love you.
3. Be loving to those who do not love you, and they may change.
4. Above all, be yourself.
