“A big secret is that you can bend the world to your will a surprising percentage of the time—most people don’t even try, and just accept that things are the way that they are. People have an enormous capacity to make things happen. A combination of self-doubt, giving up too early, and not pushing hard enough prevents most people from ever reaching anywhere near their potential.
“Ask for what you want. You usually won’t get it, and often the rejection will be painful. But when this works, it works surprisingly well. Almost always, the people who say “I am going to keep going until this works, and no matter what the challenges are I’m going to figure them out”, and mean it, go on to succeed. They are persistent long enough to give themselves a chance for luck to go their way.”
American entrepreneur and investor
“The cost of a thing is the amount of … life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.”
Henry David Thoreau
Life is about moving on, accepting changes and looking forward to what makes you stronger and more complete.
There is not enough room in your mind for both worry and faith. You must decide which one gets to live there.
Happiness starts with you. Not with your relationships, not with your job, not with your money, but with you.
No one is perfect… that’s why pencils have erasers.
