Trust the Instincts

Never lose faith in your abilities, trust the instincts you have inside, they will guide you through your journey. And always have hope.

Do Something

You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act.

Every Headache Carries

Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.

Love is Lost

When love is lost, do not bow your head in sadness; instead keep your head up high and gaze into heaven for that is where your broken heart has been sent to heal.

Give a Smile

Wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

Noble for Anger

Be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong to fear and to happy to permit the presence of trouble.

You don't get to choose how you're going to die, or when. You can only decide how you're going to live.

Joan Baez
I think it is ok to allow yourself to make mistakes. Making them often helps teach us what is right. Trying to be perfect leads to perfectionism which most people agree is not healthy. Leading a narrow existence also leaves our experience of life emptier then if we were to experiment and broaden our horizons. Also when we are not trying to be perfect we don't have overly high expectations in others and we become more tolerant and accepting of others. We can't know everything and we should be somewhat curious about what we don't know, at least for the sake of our mental health. We also learn forgiveness in the process and also might find out just how wrong we were all along.

Eyes Cannot See

The human heart feels things they eyes cannot see, and knows what the mind cannot understand.

Robert Vallett

Conflict Can Be A Joy

Embracing conflict can be a joy when we know that irritation and frustration can lead to growth and the re-energizing of ourselves and others.

Hope lightens our steps when the road is strewn with obstacles, and helps us decide on our route.

Open and Grateful Heart

Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.

Cease to Amaze Me

Miracles never cease to amaze me. I always welcome their arrival as a delightful new experience.

I'm An Optimist

I'm an optimist. I've always believed the future is going to be better than the past. And I also believe I have a role in that. The great thing about human beings, myself in particular, is that I can change. I can do better. If you can get up every day, stay optimistic, and believe the future is better than the past, those few things get you through a lot of tough times.

Jeffrey Immelt

First we make our habits, then our habits make us.

Most Successful

Studies I've read indicate that those who are most successful use positive self-talk over 80% of the time, while those who do not succeed use negative talk about the same ratio. If you can switch your self-talk to talk that supports your activities, you'll succeed more often.

Lose Your Pride

It's better to lose your pride to the one you love, than to lose the one you love because of pride.

Anger is A Poison

A single harsh word spoken at the time of anger is so poisonous that it makes us to forget the hundred LOVEABLE conversations within seconds.

The best way to predict the future is to create it.

State of Flow

The happiest people spend much time in a state of flow, the state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter; the experience itself is so enjoyable that people will do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it.

Live your life from your heart. Share from your heart. And your story will touch and heal people's souls.

Cannot Change Anything

You cannot change anything in your life with intention alone, which can become a watered-down, occasional hope that you'll get to tomorrow. Intention without action is useless.

If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.


Look for opportunity. You can’t wait for it to knock on the door...You might not be home.

Focus On What's Good

When I focus on what’s good today, I have a good day. When I focus on what’s bad, I have a bad day. If I focus on the problem, the problem increases. If I focus on the answer, the answer increases.

Accept Yourself

The first step toward change is acceptance. Once you accept yourself, you open the door to change. That’s all you have to do. Change is not something you do, it’s something you allow.

Child Must Know

The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn’t been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.

Pablo Casals

Reach An Obstacle

When you reach an obstacle, turn it into an opportunity. You have the choice. You can overcome and be a winner, or you can allow it to overcome you and be a loser. The choice is yours and yours alone. Refuse to throw in the towel. Go that extra mile that failures refuse to travel. It is far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure.

Empower Your Dreams and Desires

You can change your beliefs so they empower your dreams and desires. Create a strong belief in yourself and what you want.

Marcia Wieder

Ignited with Sparks

Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant. There is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.

Johann Gottfried Von Herder

Being Less

If you deliberately plan on being less than you are capable of being, then I warn you that you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life.

Abraham Maslow


Acceptance says, "True, this is my situation at the moment. I'll look unblinkingly at the reality of it. But I'll also open my hands to accept willingly whatever the Universe sends me.

Learn to Live

Learn to live with self and you will learn to live with others.

Edgar Cayce


Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves; vanity, to what we would have others think of us.

What's in it for Me?

Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, "What's in it for me?"

Impossible Burdens

Some people confuse acceptance with apathy, but there's all the difference in the world. Apathy fails to distinguish between what can and what cannot be helped; acceptance makes that distinction. Apathy paralyzes the will-to-action; acceptance frees it by relieving it of impossible burdens.

Existence knows only one thing which is unchanging, and that is change.

To Find Truth

If you really want to find truth, you must be extremely honest, not merely at the verbal level but altogether; you must be extraordinarily clear, and you cannot be clear if you are unwilling to face facts.

Positive Thoughts

The person who sends out positive thoughts activates the world around him positively and draws back to himself positive results.

Keep the communication channels open. By being aware of potential problems you can fix them before a serious dispute arises.

I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.

Failing or Incompetent

Try filling your thoughts with words that make you feel strong, happy and in control of your life. Make a concentrated effort to focus on these words rather than those that make you feel like you are failing or incompetent.

Find it and Prosper

Search for the seed of good in every adversity. Master that principle and you will own a precious shield that will guard you well through all the darkest valleys you must traverse. Stars may be seen from the bottom of a deep well, but they cannot be discerned from the mountaintop. So will you learn things in adversity that you would never have discovered without trouble. There is always the seed of good. Find it and prosper.
