Excellence can be attained, if we…
Care more than others think is wise.
Risk more than others think is safe.
Dream more than others think is possible.
Focus more than others think is reasonable.
Trust more than others think is practical.
“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. Most people do the exact opposite: They only take action when they expect a reward, and they don’t enjoy the action. 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 may be able to carry on for a while, but sooner or later we end up feeling depleted, discouraged, or weak. We cannot keep on giving when we are running on an empty tank. We need to be solid.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Savor
“Dealing with our overweight – or with any of our life’s difficulties, for that matter – is not a battle to be fought. Instead, we must learn how to make friends with our hardships and challenges. They are there to help us; they are natural opportunities for deeper understanding and transformation, brining us more joy and peace as we learn to work with them.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Savor
“The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.” ~ Steve Furtick
“The greatest handicap a person has is not realizing his potential.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Today Matters
“To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
