Reminding yourself you learn more from failure than success is a good way to reassure yourself after a disappointment. It is true, that when something doesn't work out well for you, you ultimately learn from you r mistakes better than you ever would otherwise. Reminding yourself to always embrace failures as a learning experience is an important life lesson.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. In fact, no one can make you feel ANYTHING without your consent. What mattered was not what happens to you, but how you handle it. Self-Command is required . . . because for the most part, the self is the only thing that we can command, we have no control, ultimately, over what other people do or think. What we can influence is our understanding of these circumstances and how we respond to them.

Surround yourself with positive messages, and be thankful for the moment – whatever that moment may bring. Keep your goals in mind but do not let them detract from living your life right now, right here, with gratitude for all the smiles, surprises, insights, memories, challenges, and opportunities that make your life yours. No one else can live your life and no one else has the chance to be you. Embrace the ride and be thankful for everything that comes with it.

Don’t let them get inside your head. You’re not boring, nerdy or weird. You’re complex, creative and far too intelligent for their small words. And for the record, you are also infinitely more attractive than you give yourself credit for.

I knew that I wanted to change my life for the longest time. I knew I was unhappy, unsatisfied, and unfulfilled. I knew I didn’t have freedom. Not real freedom. The problem was that I knew these things but not . I didn’t have the feeling in my gut that things change. I knew they change, but the change wasn’t a for me, and thus it didn’t happen. Anthony Robbins has a good aphorism to describe all these in your life: he says “after a while you end up shoulding all over yourself.” But once you understand these things on an emotional level you are able to turn your into . I believe that that is the pivotal point, that is when you get leverage, that is when you are compelled to take action. Thus, a decision is not a real decision until it is a for you, until you feel it on your nerve-endings, until you are compelled to take action. Once your have turned into , then you have .

Time heals almost every pain you can feel. But it’s also the hardest medicine to take. There is always a medicine for every pain you feel. But sometimes you just have to give it time to cure your pain. It’s true that there are some pains time can’t heal like emotional wounds. Because if you ignore it, your mind will just suppress the pain. But this pain will visit you again sooner or later. But still time is the best medicine for almost all the pain.

You must have a strong relationship with yourself before you connect yourself with others. You must love yourself more than you want someone to love you. Love yourself the way you are. Accept yourself and believe that you are perfectly suitable to be loved by someone. If you are confident about yourself, only then you can look into other eyes confidently. When you don’t need someone’s approval to feel good about yourself, you can live your best life. How do you expect to fall in love with someone if you haven’t even fallen in love with yourself?

Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, be grateful for the amazing gifts you've been given: of loved ones and simple pleasures, of health and sight and the gift of music and books, of nature and beauty and the ability to create, and everything in between.
