you didn’t before our lives are defined by opportunities even the ones we [Music] miss there is time for everything if you find a path with no obstacles it probably doesn’t lead anywhere the best view comes after the hardest climb it always seems impossible until it’s done we can do anything we want to if we stick to it long enough keep your fears to yourself but share your courage with others look in the mirror that’s your [Music] competition any change even a change for the better is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts holding a grudge is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die the best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today don’t spend time beating on a wall hoping to transform it into a door [Music] you become what you believe time is a created thing to say I don’t have time is like saying I don’t want to it’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting we must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing at whatever cost must be attained Prosperity is not without many fears and disasters and adversity is not without Comforts and hopes sometimes you face difficulties not because you have done something wrong but because you have done something right it is better to fail in originality than to succeed in [Music] imitation if you dare nothing then when the day is over nothing is all you will have [Music] gained the only real prison is fear and the only real freedom is Freedom From Fear we need never be hopeless because we can never be irreparably broken when you compare the Sorrows of real life to the pleasures of the imaginary one you will never want to live again only to dream forever history will be kind to you because you intend to write it success isn’t overnight it’s when every day you get a little better than the day before it all adds up grief and resilience live together you may have to fight a battle more than once to win it the unhappiest people in this world are those who care the most about what other people think I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us adversity is like a strong wind it tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn so that we see ourselves as we real really are the size of your dreams must always exceed your current capacity to achieve them if your dreams do not scare you they are not big enough growth is painful change is painful but nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong it’s not about perfect it’s about effort and when you bring that effort every single day that’s where transformation [Music] happens we don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward you’re in charge of your own happiness you don’t need to wait for other people’s permission to be happy be more concerned with your character than your reputation because your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are our greatest battles are that with our own minds experience is not what happens to you it’s what you do with what happens to you it’s not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life it’s what you whisper to yourself that has the most power worrying is like a rocking chair it gives you something to do but doesn’t get you anywhere you cannot change anyone but you can be the reason someone changes the most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create overcome endure transform love and be greater than our suffering you cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness let the Improvement of yourself keep you so busy that you have no time to criticize others sometimes the place you are used to is not the place you belong even if you are on the right track you’ll get run over if you just sit there sometimes it takes an overwhelming breakdown to have an undeniable breakthrough it’s your reaction to adversity not adversity itself that determines how your life story will develop never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right going through challenging things can teach you a lot and they also make you appreciate the times that aren’t so challenging life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes don’t resist them that only creates sorrow let reality be reality let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like failure is a bend in the road not the end of the road learn from failure and keep moving forward all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us the gem cannot be polished without friction nor man perfected without trials don’t watch the clock do what it does keep going time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time a problem is a chance for you to do your [Music] best never marry a woman who has bigger feet than [Music] you a failure is not always a mistake it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances the real mistake is to stop trying the trick is to enjoy life don’t wish away your days waiting for better ones ahead never regret a day in your life good days give you happiness bad days give you [Music] experience
