I help people not for my benefit but for there’s. When I needed help I had people in my life that helped push me forward. Some people don’t have people to do this for them. So I've taken on this role to help people to get back on track to live a healthier and fuller life. I believe we all matter and we all deserve to live a life worth living.

There’s nothing worse than feeling stuck in life. It’s like everything you do is a battle. Your confidence is shattered. This is when you need to take action and change things up. Now, imagine the life you want to live and then, build it piece by piece.

Give yourself credit. Often when we feel frustrated or upset we only concentrate on the bad things or the mistakes we've made instead of giving ourselves credit for what we do right. Allow yourself to feel confident about the things you have accomplished, even if you've messed up in other areas.

We don’t like being penalized for something we said or did. But we do it to people all the time. Someone does something that offends us and then, we base our opinion of them because of this for eternity. Life is a process of growing and evolving. Don’t penalize someone forever, see them with a fresh mind when you meet again.

Don’t lower your standards for anyone or anything, self-respect is everything.When you wait for someone for a few minutes, it’s your need. For a few hours, it’s your trust. For a few weeks, it’s your friendship. But to wait when you know the person will not come, it’s your love.

There’s always some truth behind ‘just kidding,’ knowledge behind ‘I don’t know,’ emotion behind ‘I don’t care,’ and pain behind: ‘It’s okay.’ So pay close attention to how people feel. Once you understand a persons language, then you know how to respond to their needs and wants.

Live the life you want, not the one that others expect you to. People –– specifically your
family and friends –– generally expect great things from you when they believe in your potential.
And they should. But make sure to expect the same from yourself. Don’t simply be great because
others want you to. Be great because YOU want to! Because you can’t see yourself living any other life than your own.

Dissolve negative opinions about yourself. Whatever you think you may do, it’s half of what you can really do and that’s because you have so many negative opinions of yourself. You can solve them. Just accept the fact that you have them and then start working on them.

Trust your emotions. Don’t underestimate your emotions or overestimate them. Your emotions are your feedback system and for that are very important. Trying to ignore your emotions is like depriving yourself from lights in a car running in the middle of the night.

Life is unbelievably brief. When you’re young, you might feel like there’s a huge mass of time ahead of you. But trust me, it passes much faster than you think. You get gray hairs before you feel like you’re really an adult. And then, you have kids, and suddenly they’re leaving for college. Stop long enough to appreciate the moments because they will be gone before you know it.

Don’t give in to the negative self-talk. This is the dialogue that’s keeping you from moving forward. You are in control of your mind, not the other way around. Choose to look at things in a different perspective. Choose to keep your options open and your dreams alive. When the negative discussion starts, choose to be stronger than your thoughts.

“Give it your best shot.” Growing up, I heard those words of encouragement time and again, whenever I was venturing into something new, or competing in something where the competition was fierce. I learned to treat Best as a chance, not a chore.

If more friends were like you, there would be more smiles, more adventures, and more love in the world… there would be more dreams flying free, more hearts that left understood, and more warm, cozy words to wrap up in… there would be more laughing, more sharing, and more people who knew that a true and beautiful, down-to-earth friend who is one of life’s greatest gifts. Happy Valentine’s Day to you – my wonderful friends.

Be Compassionate / Kind. Always look out for opportunities where you can help others. Don’t get caught up in your own space – instead, look outwards and see if there’s anything you can do for others. Even the simplest things, like helping someone carry his/her belongings, is very much appreciated by others.

The past is history; the future is a mystery and right now is a gift, that’s why they call it the “present”. You have no idea what tomorrow will bring, so be thankful for every single moment that you’re alive. Be grateful for your family, friends, and freedom. Be grateful for the food you eat, for the fact that you have a warm, dry place to sleep with a roof over your head. Soak up every single drop of life you can, because all you’ll ever have is this moment, right now.

When there is appreciation for the self there will be self-respect. And where there is true self-respect there will be no ego or arrogance of the special qualities in oneself. Think of one aspect in yourself, which you consider your special quality. Make the practice of reminding yourself of this specialty. When you increase your self-respect in this way based on your specialty, you'll find your power of tolerance increasing too.

Your actions define who you are; your actions bring to light your potential, your passion, and your power. Your actions reveal your difference, and it is your difference from others that are the foundation of your success. How are you different from others?

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons: things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

You said your life sucked. Now, imagine your life had ended a year ago. Think of all the amazing things that have happened this past year you would of missed out on if you weren't here. If you look beyond the hard times and see the blessing you will always be grateful for your life.

Nobody needs to ask the question what is my purpose. It will always be found in service. If you can just for one day put your attention on making life better for someone else. If you can focus on thinking like that . . . that’s how God thinks. It’s an ancient concept but its still relevant to touch someone’s life is more valuable than any amount of money.
