Focus

Realize that not all movement is progress. When stress and tension and chaos surround you, pause for a moment and relax. The best time to take a deep breath is when you don’t have time for it.
Select a specific challenge, deal with it, and then move calmly and confidently to the next. When you’re being pulled in multiple directions at once, take time to remember what you value most.
Focus on what’s most important to you and you’ll naturally direct your greatest energy to the right source.
Life is filled with either problems or possibilities. What you see is what you choose to see.
On the surface life can seem tumultuous and perplexing, yet deep inside, where it truly matters, life is what you make of it.
Choose to see beyond the problems to the possibilities that await your attention.
Live every day of your life in full.
Experience the highs and the lows, the positives and the negatives, and all the moods present between the various extremes.
Don’t focus on simply being happy.
Focus on living a well-rounded, seasoned life.
Focus on achieving completeness. Yes, happiness is part of this completeness, but so is sadness, difficulty, frustration, and failure. And overcoming these latter points supports your personal growth far more than constant happiness.
The feelings of happiness and fulfillment are nice when they happen, and they are needed, but they don’t strengthen you.
