Find The Redeeming Quality

You should never hate anyone, even the people you dislike the most. Everyone has something good about them. You have to find the redeeming quality and see the person for that.

Count Your Blessings

Be grateful for small things, big things and everything in between. Count your blessings, not your problems.

An Open Heart, Mind and Ear

Sometimes we simply need someone who will be there for us. Someone, who will sit there and listen to us with an open heart, mind and ear. Be that person for others when you can.

Between Dead and Alive

Depression is about as close as you get to somewhere between dead and alive, and it’s the worst.

Re-evaluate How You Look At Yourself

If you want to know how strong you are. Look back at how many things stood in your way and you broke through them all. Only a strong person could do that. Maybe, its time you re-evaluate how you look at yourself.

Confidence Will Own The Building

Insecurity will always rent the space it occupies but confidence will own the building and any room it steps in.

Nameless Moments

The best portions of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.

Mean What You Say

Say what you mean and mean what you say. Don’t expect others to read your mind, and don’t play games with their heads and hearts. Don’t tell half-truths and expect people to trust you when the full truth comes out. Half-truths are no better than lies. And don’t ignore someone you care about, because lack of concern hurts more than angry words.

Find Someone Who Is . . .

Find someone who is proud to have you . . . scared to lose you . . . fight for you . . . appreciate you . . . respects you . . . cares for you and loves you.

Living Together

If everyone cared and nobody cried. If everyone loved and nobody lied. If everyone shared and swallowed their pride. Then we’d find the purpose of life in the brightest day – living together in love, peace and harmony.

Passion And Purpose

When your passion and purpose is greater than your fears and excuses, you will find a way.

Curve Balls Are Inevitable

You lose your job. You will have your heart broken. The person you admire will disappoint you. You will make mistakes that you’ll regret. You will experience losing someone special. You will fall and you will get up. Life’s curve balls are inevitable, therefore position yourself so that the “getting up” part is not so crippling. Don’t’ let one thing be your everything, have balance and independence. 

It Wasn't The End Of The World

When life gets hard and all you do is want to give up. Remember back to the last time you felt this way and it wasn't the end of the world. You worked through it and moved forward, just like you’ll do now.  

A Feeling Controlled By The Heart

Love is beautiful because it’s a feeling controlled by the heart but friendship is very beautiful because it’s a feeling that takes care of another heart.

You Don't Understand

The most difficult phase of life is not when no one understands you. It is when you don’t understand yourself.

You Don't Understand

The most difficult phase of life is not when no one understands you. It is when you don’t understand yourself.

You Honor Yourself

Be considerate of others. Showing consideration is a way of honoring others. Most people will respond in kind. When you honor others, you honor yourself.

We Are Responsible For . . .

I believe that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are but we are responsible for who we become.

Who Made You Smile

It doesn’t matter who hurt you or broke you down – what matters is who made you smile again.

Manners Create

Manners create an atmosphere of mutual respect and goodwill. Rudeness reveals a complete lack of character. It’s right to be polite and crude to be rude.

A Precious Gift

Life is a precious gift, Love is a wonderful gift, and Laughter is a glorious gift. So live life to the fullest and laugh as much as you breathe.

What Makes You Sad

Sometimes the only reason you won’t let go of what make you sad is because it was the only thing that really made you happy.

Happiness Comes From . . .

Happiness is more important than a smile, because a smile comes from the lips but happiness comes from deep down someone’s heart. So be happy forever.

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

People Hate You

Sometimes people hate you not because you did something wrong but because you’re better than them and they cannot beat you.


Face your fears or your fears will always face you.

Have You Felt . . .

Have you been in a crowded room, but felt like you were alone? Have you ever felt like a puzzle with missing pieces? Have you always been that shoulder to cry on? Have you felt so empty that the darkness takes over?

Invisible Wounds

Invisible wounds take longer to heal.

What A Tragedy It Would Be

You should never tell a child their dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating and what a tragedy it would be if they believed it.

Judge The Person Standing Beside You

Look in the mirror, stare back at yourself and if you can’t honestly say that you’re perfect, then you have a right to judge the person standing beside you.

This Too Shall Pass

‘This too shall pass’ is universally applicable to all situations in your life, both good and bad. All the hardships and all the great moments in your life will eventually pass. Enjoy the moments and let them go when it’s time for them to go.

A New Canvas To Paint Upon

Each day is a new canvas to paint upon. Make sure your picture is full of life and happiness and at the end of the day you don’t look at it and wish you had painted something different.

Words, Actions And Choices

You are the controller of your own life. Take responsibility for your words, actions and choices. And then adjust them to enable you to move in the direction you wish to go.

Celebrate Without Fear

People all over the world have the same basic wants and needs. It doesn’t matter where we come from, what we look like, how we talk, or what we believe. Deep down the essence of who we are as human beings is the same. This is all that matters. The outside differences are there to learn from and celebrate without fear.

Create A Unique Description

What makes you unique is more than your gifts and talents. It is tied into your potential, who you can become and the ingredients of your bliss. So if you are looking for a way to figure out exactly what makes you unique. The answer starts with finding your bliss. With it you can create a unique description of who you are.

The Proudest Accomplishment

Raising children is hard but the proudest accomplishment to your resume.

Shine Brighter Than Any Shadow

Don’t listen or think about anything other people say about you. Just live your life and shine brighter than any shadow hate may bring.

Fighting Good Things

Don’t give up on everything in life just because of a few bad things. If you keep fighting good things will happen to you.

Problems Facing Us

Any trouble or problems facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way we think about our problems may defeat us before we ever do anything about it.

Accepting Yourself

What makes you beautiful is that you accept yourself for who you are not for what you want to be like or whom you want to be like or whom you want to impress. Being beautiful is something from within. Begin to accept the beauty by accepting yourself as that individual which you are.

The Value Of Everything

Happiness needs sadness. Success needs failure. Benevolence needs evil. Love needs hatred. Victory needs defeat. Pleasure needs pain. You must experience and accept the extremes. Because if the contrast is lost, you lose appreciation; and when you lose appreciation, you lose the value of everything.

Nobody Makes It Alone

Remember that nobody makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who help you.

True Strength

Be patient and tough. Someday this pain will be useful to you. You will never realize your true strength until being strong is your only option left. Until you are broken, you won’t know what you’re truly made of. Pain doesn’t just show up in your life for no reason. It’s a sign that something needs to change – it’s a wake up call that guides you toward a better future. So keep your heart open to dreams, and make that change. For as long as there are dreams and positive action, there is hope and as long as there is hope, there is joy in living.

The Best Teacher

Experience is the best teacher. Don’t try too hard to memorize the things others are teaching. Learn the best practices and then do your thing. Life itself will teach you over the course of time, and often at the right time and place, so that you will remember forever what is truly important.

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Accept The Pain

Each person has a painful story and each painful story has a successful ending. Accept the pain and achieve the gain.

Tears Water The Seeds Of Your Future

Cry, forgive, learn and move on. Let your tears water the seeds of your future growth and happiness.

We Hustle For The Worthiness We Already Possess

Belonging starts with self-acceptance. Your level of belonging, in fact, can never be greater than you level of self-acceptance, because believing that you’re enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and imperfect. When we don’t have that, we shape-shift and turn into chameleons; we hustle for the worthiness we already possess.

In The Blink Of An Eye

Between birth and death, life happens in the blink of an eye.

Capacity For Hope

The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life. It provides human beings with a sense of destination and the energy to get started.

Dominating Thought Habits

The spirit of the individual is determined by his dominating thought habits.


The best way to have a breakthrough in our own life is to help provide one for somebody else. When we give we shall receive – do unto others as we will like them to do unto us. 

The Gift Of Encouragement

One of the most beautiful gifts in the world is the gift of encouragement. When someone encourages you, that person helps you over a threshold you might otherwise never have crossed on your own.

Use The As Motivation

Never judge your strength by comparison, because there is always going to be someone who is more experienced than you. Judge by your progress. And even if there is someone better than you, use that as motivation, and strive to become better, because that’s what they did.

Happy, Strong And Fearless

Faith keeps you strong. Love keeps you whole. Happiness keeps you alive. Life is too short to live it any other way. So be happy, strong and fearless!

You Made Me Who I Am Today!

Thanks to those who disliked me, you made me a stronger person. Thanks to those who loved me, you made my heart grow tender. Thanks to those who envied me, you made my self esteem increase. Thanks to those who cared, you made me feel important. Thanks to those who entered my life, you made me who I am today. 

Two Loves

In life you have two loves: one who changes the way you see yourself and the world. The other, who puts you back together after you have lost the first.

It's Hard

When you say, “it’s hard”, it actually means, “I’m not strong enough to fight for it.” Stop saying it’s hard. Believe and think positive.

Resisting Life

Once you stop resisting life and live it, you will see dramatic changes take place. 

Bad Things Happen To Everyone

There is nothing in this life that can destroy you but yourself. Bad things happen to everyone, and when they do, you can’t let them get to you and stop. You must fight back. If you don’t you’re the one who loses in the end. But if you refuse to give up on yourself and fight back, you always win.

Where Are You

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Change Your Attitude

When someone asks how you’re doing, say “Great!” Instead of “okay” or “pretty good” or other things. Pretty soon, it will become a habit and change your attitude and help others too.

"I" And "Me"

Take “I” and “Me” out of your vocabulary, and watch how life will reward you. Watch how your anxieties wither away while your determination hits overdrive. If your character is defined by what you do for yourself, it’s worthless. Let the life you breathe into others define your character, and watch your life soar.

Plant Seeds Of Faith

If you judge people, you’ll have no time to love them; so try not to judge or make assumptions until you know the whole story. Be thankful for everyone you know. People are our greatest assets, so be kind and generous to one another. What comes around goes around. We tend to get back what we put forth, so it we plant seeds of faith in one another, we will receive an abundance of faithful friends.

Behind Any Step

We will always have a reason or excuse behind any step or actions we take in our life, but instead of living in regret we can listen to our inner soul that knows our unique purpose which is trying to tell us to stop or move on.

Beliefs Are Sabotaging

Which beliefs are sabotaging you in your life right now? Be honest with yourself. There’s only one person who needs the answer to this question – and that person is you.

You Think You're A Failure

Stop It! When you are using those unkind adjectives about yourself, you are merely reinforcing the message. If you think you’re a failure, well guess what, how are you feeling and being? You are what you believe and say about yourself.

Ask Yourself For More

You can’t always be THE best, but you can always be YOUR best. You can’t ask yourself for more than that. 

Most Sought After Intellectual Degree

Wisdom is the most-sought intellectual degree whose subjects are regularly learned throughout life with an open mind in an open university called life and taught by a teacher who is none other than self-experience only.

Drama And People

There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones that don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life. Getting back up is living.

To Love Somebody

Love is an unconditional commitment to an imperfect person. To love somebody isn't just a strong feeling. It’s a decision, a judgment, and a promise.

Create Something Good

How does one find good in the world? When there is so much pain, so many hungry children, so much suffering? The answer is not to try find 'good' but to create it, by helping one person at a time. Go out and create something good today!

Volunteering At 4Good Family Fun Day

Searching For The Truth

When searching for the truth, follow the lie. Just keep your eyes opened and your heart closed along the way.

The Greatest Lessons

Life teaches us the greatest lessons and gives us the best gifts. Be more open-minded to accept all that comes into your life.

Where Are You Now

Don’t compare yourself to other people. It won’t help. You’ll only find what you expect to find. If you think you’re weak, everyone else will seem stronger. If you think you’re strong, everyone else will seem weaker. There’s no point in doing this. Simply look at where you are now, and aim to get better as you go forward.

Stay Awesome!

Have a magnificent day, challenge yourself, stay awesome and remember to love without limits!

What I Am

Whatever I want is what I am. In all my interactions and connections I would love to experience feelings of peace, love and happiness more than anything else. And so that is what I am. When I am connected to what I really want, I am able to experience the divinity within. Whenever a negative experience takes me away from the real me, I just need to remind myself of who I really am and what I really want. 

Respect People

Respect people who find time for you in their busy schedule. But love people who never look at their schedule when you need them.

Clarity In The Thoughts

Train your mind to acquire silence because if the mind is silent there is a great possibility of Clarity in the Thoughts.

Peace With All

Life’s richest treasure is a loving heart that is at peace with all.

Go Against Yourself

When we stop trying to be what we are not, we realize our authenticity. Before we had knowledge, we were completely authentic. We learn to use knowledge to measure and judge, which is a powerful tool we have as humans. However we create an image of perfection in our mind of what we should be, but are not. We confuse knowledge for nature. We believe in the lie of our imperfection. When we realize this we can reclaim the truth of our perfection and live in love and acceptance. Make a commitment to never go against yourself. Practice non-judgment and realize that the same part of your mind that condemns you is the same voice that caused you to take action in the first place.

Show Your True Colors

If you want it, get it. If you dream it, believe it. The sky’s never the limit. So go on, show the world who you are. Don’t be afraid to show your true colors.

Motivate People

In motivating people, you've got to engage their minds and their hearts. I motivate people, I hope, by example - and perhaps by excitement, by having productive ideas to make others feel involved.


Dare to be remarkable.

Your Ability To Love

Your love of yourself (or lack thereof) creates the window through which you view the whole world, and it's inhabitants. If you have a healthy opinion of yourself, you will tend to see the good in others. If however, your love of self is severely lacking, so will your ability to love others be lacking.

Celebrate What You've Accomplished

Celebrate what you've accomplished, but raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed.

Confidence Is A Learn-able Skill

Practice handling criticism from a place of self-confidence instead of insecurity. Even if you’re not a self-confident person, you can borrow that feeling of self-confidence and paste it on to the criticism. Confidence is a learn-able skill, not a personality trait.

Obstacles In Your Path

See all obstacles in your path from a new perspective, a new mindset. Instead of seeing them as a stop sign, see them as an opportunity to show how badly you want something.

Resistance To Change

Sometimes, no matter how positive or encouraging your advice is, people aren’t ready to hear it. Accept this and don’t see someone’s resistance to change as a reflection on you.


Realize that everyone is acting from their own reality, and that their assumptions might not match up with yours. This is the root of most miscommunications, and knowing it gives you the ability to fix things when they go wrong.

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Who Can Solve Our Problems

We are the only ones who can solve our own problems. We are the only ones who can change ourselves. We are the only ones who can choose to see the good, to see the hope, to pick ourselves up, and to accept help. We must rely upon and trust ourselves.

Be Open

People are really kind and helpful if you give them a chance. Be open to receiving without feeling the need to “pay them back.” Let others know what they've provided for you, and how much you appreciate their help. Fully receiving what someone else has to offer is a gift in itself.

Expect Bad Things

If you expect bad things in your life and work, you’ll always find them. A negative mind-set is like looking at the world through distorting, grimy lenses. You spot every blemish and overlook or discount everything else. It’s amazing what isn't there until you start to look for it. Of course, if you decide to look for signs of positive things, you’ll find those too.

Turn Your Anger

Turn your fear into anger, turn your anger into strength, and turn your strength into power. It doesn't matter how hard you fall. What matters is that you get back up.

Remove Nonessential Possessions

Too many material possessions complicate our lives to a greater degree than we ever give them credit. They drain our bank account, our energy, and out attention. The keep us from the ones we love and from living a life based on our values. If you will invest the time to remove nonessential possessions from your life, you will never regret it. 

The Gift Of A New Day

When you open your eyes in the morning, sit for a moment and appreciate the gift of a new day, create a peaceful thought and enjoy some moments of silence throughout the whole day.

Don't Lose Yourself

Give, but do not allow your self to be used. Love, but do not let your heart be abused. Trust, but do not be naïve. Listen to others, but do not lose yourself in their words.

In The Wrong Relationship

Being single doesn’t mean that you are unloved, unwanted, unhappy, or unappreciated. In the end, it’s wiser to be single than in the wrong relationship.
