It’s okay to dream

“You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.”

  • Deepak K. Chopra

You will find times in your life where things seem impossible and your will to overcome obstacles is diminished. When those times come, it is important to remember this quote and what it means.

You can get through the obstacles in your path. They may seem daunting, they may seem almost impossible to get past; but you can do it. Everyone has a dream and you should put your all into obtaining yours.

It’s what is inside that counts!

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.”

  • Ralph Waldo Emerson

You can’t always control your surroundings, so if you want to make an important change, look within yourself. You have control over your own thoughts, feelings, and actions. What lies within you is unique to you and you can use it to make your way through what lies around you.

A Timeless Quote

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

  • Benjamin Franklin

This ageless quotation is often used since it is so accurate. In order to succeed in whatever you do in life, you need a plan. Having a road map for where you are trying to go or what you are trying to do will help you get there. Taking things as they come will only get you so far.

Strive for More

I’d rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.

  • Robert H. Schuller

Greatness cannot be achieved by standing still in life. The effort you put in is a reflection of how much you care and that effort is not lost or wasted if you fail. Even in failure you gain new experiences and can learn something from what happened.

It is undoubtedly better to reach for the stars and make a great effort to reach your goals than to never try at all. At least if you fail, you won’t live with regret later wondering, “What if…”

Apply Yourself to Life

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.”

  • Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

You can know everything there is to know in this world and you can wish to know everything there is to know outside of it, but unless you put that knowledge to use or attempt to learn more, knowing and the desire to know more are both useless.

It is only through application of skills and knowledge that your experiences become useful to you. Learning how to apply your knowledge and take advantage of what you wish for to move along your own path will get you far.

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”

  • Confucius

This is a quote to live by. Every person in this world is different. We may all be human, but we experience things differently and at a different pace. Take on life at the pace you see fit. Don’t think you must conform to the pace of others when you know yourself and your needs best. You can get to where you want to go, and have wonderful experiences along the way. You just have to keep trying and moving forward.

Do or Do Not

“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”

  • Rabindranath Tagore

Everything in the world requires effort to accomplish and just doesn’t happen out of nowhere. You have to make a conscious choice to do something and put that effort in to reach your goals or stand still looking at your goals from afar, never willing to take the first step.

Reach out for your goals. It may seem hard or impossible, but effort goes a long way toward getting you there.
