“Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, you ought to set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” ~ Seth Godin
“It’s okay to be sad when you mess up, but don’t dwell for too long. The mistake has already been made, and you can’t erase the fact that it happened. You can either learn from it or mope about it. The choice is yours, but remember, we are only human; we were born to make mistakes. Simply put, if you have never made a mistake in your life, then that means that you have never taken a risk. Taking risks means that you go outside of your comfort zone – that you go outside of your boundaries. The most successful people are the ones who are not afraid to give it their all and possibly humiliate themselves greatly in front of others. It’s like that one saying, ‘The person who asks a question is a fool for five minutes, but the person who never asks and remains silent is a fool forever.’ You choose the way you want to live your life.” ~ Cynthia Amy Tang
“This is the true joy of life, the being used up for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clot of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.” ~ George Bernard Shaw
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~ Howard Thurman
“When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our things were answers like astronaut, president, or in my case, princess… When we were ten, they asked us again. We answered – rock star, cowboy, or in my case, gold medalist… But now that we’ve grown up, they want a more serious answer. Well, how about this… Who the hell knows? This isn’t a time to make hard and fast decisions. This is the time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere chill. Fall in love – a lot. Major in philosophy because there’s no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind. Then change it again because nothing is permanent. So make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask again what we want to be… We won’t have to guess. We’ll know.” ~ Graduation Speech From The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
“I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.” ~ Unknown
“Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets.” ~ Nido Qubein
“No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated and disciplined.” ~ Unknown Author
“I’d rather be a free man in my grave than living as a puppet or a slave.” ~ Jimmy Cliff
“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.” ~ L.P Jack
“There is nothing the busy man is less busied with than living; there is nothing harder to learn.” ~ Seneca
“The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth, dwelling deeply in the present moment and feeling truly alive.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
“Adults are always asking kids what they want to be when they grow up because they are looking for ideas.” ~ Paula Poundstone
“People say that what we are seeking is meaning for life. I don’t think this is what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive.” ~ Joseph Campbell
“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” ~ Mohandas Gandhi
