you cannot change what you are only what you [Music] do resilience is knowing that you are the only one that has the power and the responsibility to pick yourself [Music] up true wisdom requires both thinking with our head and understanding with our heart our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future but from wanting to control it you are your best thing start by doing what’s necessary then do what’s possible then suddenly you are doing The Impossible the world you desire can be one it exists it is real it is possible it is yours if a goal is worth having it’s worth blocking out the time in your day-to-day life necessary to achieve it you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take never let yesterday use up today we must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope you must learn to let go release the stress you were never in control anyway opportunities don’t happen you create [Music] them you have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life [Music] life life is just a Race Against Time so have a good time the starting point of all achievement is desire if something is wrong fix it now but train yourself not to worry worry fixes [Music] nothing if you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for ordinary challenges are gifts that Force us to search for a new center of gravity don’t fight them just find a new way to [Music] stand don’t be discouraged it’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock nothing is permanent in this wicked world not even our troubles to accomplish great things we must not only act but also dream not only plan but also [Music] believe climb the mountain to see the world not so that the world can see you the greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one work hard in silence let success be your Noise We generate fears while we sit we overcome them by action you just can’t beat the person who never gives up if you don’t stand up for something you can fall for anything your own resolution to succeed is more important than any [Music] others when we strive to become better than we are everything around us becomes better [Music] too if it is important to you you will find a way not an [Music] excuse no matter how hard you work to bring yourself up there’s someone out there working just as hard to put you down what we achieve inwardly will change outer [Music] reality never will you have this day again so Make It Count don’t be afraid to give up the good for the great sorrow looks back worry looks around Faith looks up there is no passion to be found playing small in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves failure is a condiment that gives success its [Music] flavor not until we are lost do we begin to truly find ourselves motivation is what gets you started habit is what keeps you going if you’re serious about changing your life you’ll find a way if you’re not you’ll find an excuse always make a total effort even when the odds are against you once you face your fear nothing is ever as hard as you [Music] think every luxury must be paid for and everything is a luxury starting with being in this world life isn’t as serious as the Mind makes it out to be do something today that your future self will thank you for you may delay but time will not the art of life is a constant Readjustment to our surroundings life is only precious because it ends out of suffering have emerged the strongest Souls the most massive characters are seared with scars now is no time to think of what you do not have think of what you can do with what there is never bend your head always hold it high look the world straight in the eye the oak fought the wind and was broken the willow bent when it must and survived act as if it were impossible to fail the past is history the future is a mystery the Here and Now is a gift gift that is why it’s called the present I say luck is when an opportunity comes along and you are prepared for it do not take life too seriously you will never get out of it alive within our dreams and aspirations we find Opportunities truth is not what you want it to be it is what it is and you must Bend to its power or live a lie you must understand that there is more than one path to the top of the mountain it is confidence in our bodies minds and spirits that allows us to keep looking for new adventures strength doesn’t come from what you can do it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you [Music] couldn’t the road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places what makes you unique is what makes you [Music] attractive it is important that we forget forgive ourselves for making mistakes we need to learn from our errors and move [Music] on pain makes you stronger tears make you braver heartbreak makes you wiser so thank the past for a better [Music] future most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them [Music] absorb what is useful discard what is useless and add what is specifically your own just when the caterpillar thought the world was ending he turned into a butterfly it’s the little details that are vital little things make big things happen we build too many walls and not enough Bridges I don’t believe you have to be better than everybody else I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be your past doesn’t Define you it just gives you the starting point of who you’re going to be sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a [Music] memory the only place success comes before work is in the diary often any decision even the wrong decision is better than no decision don’t raise your voice improve your argument we may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated I am not a product of my circumstances I am a product of my decisions the truth is not for all men but only for those who seek it the first duty of a man is to think for himself to succeed jump as quickly at opportunities as you do at conclusions your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer be careful who you call your friends I’d rather have four quarters than 100 pennies most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seem to be no hope at all only you have the power to determine whether your future mimics your past the best way out is always [Music] through if you light a lamp for someone else it will also brighten your path
