But more importantly

imageTruth be told, nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to expand your comfort zone so you can experience things and understand more… so that you may fear less in the long run.
The reality, of course, is we all get afraid sometimes.
It’s not about not being afraid, but what you do when you feel that way.
When you feel doubt, or fear, or anxiety, or frustration, know that you can let it go just as surely as you can pull your hand away from a flame. Keep your mind focused on the goodness, on the possibilities and on your most treasured goals. What begins in your mind ends up in your life. Think continually of the way you would like to be, let these thoughts drive your actions, and your reality will reliably catch up with your thinking.
But more importantly listen to your heart, because it knows best.

One small thing

imageChristmas isn’t the only time you can do something for others especially the ones who need it most in society, you can do things all year round.
Making a difference in someone’s life is one of the best feelings ever, and everyone has the capacity to do it.
Be someone’s light !
One small thing could change their whole day even life.

Moving a mountain

imagePatience is not about waiting, it’s the ability to keep a good attitude while working hard for what you believe in. It’s the willingness to stay focused, confidently staking one small step at a time, knowing that the way you move a mountain is by moving one stone at a time. Every stone you move, no matter how small, is progress.
Whether you are working on improving your health, learning a new skill, or getting a business venture off the ground, you can’t expect instant gratification.
Instead, you must dedicate yourself to the best of your ability and understand that real change takes time.
Sometimes it may be hard to see your progress. Sometimes it will be frustrating when the results you seek don’t appear as quickly as you had hoped. Still, you are advancing.
Hang in there. You may be moving things along slowly, but you are still moving a mountain.

It’s that simple

imageIf you want something, you must endure the pain of working for it.
It’s that simple.
If you’re not where you want to be right now, take the time to visualize yourself in the place you want to be and take the first step in that direction. You may not be able to change your destination in a day, but you can change your direction right now.
Remember, strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you couldn’t.
No matter how much it hurts now, you have to hold your head up, grit your teeth, and keep going. In the end, consistent action speaks for itself. So focus diligently, work hard in silence, and let your success be your noise


imageWords to myself every morning –
No matter how many times you break down, there should always be a little voice inside you that says,

“NO, you’re not done yet! Get back up!”

Listen to this voice. What you need to realize is, life is a journey, often difficult and sometimes incredibly cruel but you are well equipped for it as long as you tap into your inner strength, and allow it to flourish forward.
