“You can only be you when you do your best. When you don’t do your best you are denying yourself the right to be you. That’s a seed that you should really nurture in your mind. You don’t need knowledge or great philosophical concepts. You don’t need the acceptance of others. You express your own divinity by being alive and by loving yourself and others.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements
“Doing your best is taking the action because you love it, not because you’re expecting a reward.

And that’s the reason why they don’t do their best.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements
“To reach an audacious goal, we sometimes benefit from having it lie just beyond our grasp.” ~ Sarah Lewis, The Rise
“The obstacle is the path. Face the problem, and in doing so, become more aware. See what is really happening with you. Learn about yourself. This is a valuable education.” ~ Leo Babauta, Blog
“Recognize that it is not really possible to steadily help others when we ourselves are not in good physical, mental, or emotional state.

We need to be solid.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Savor
