  2. 2. “The greatest gift you can give somebody is your own personal development. I used to say, "If you will take care of me, I will take care of you. "Now I say, I will take care of me for you, if you will take care of you for me.”
  3. 3. "After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul. And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and company doesn’t mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises. And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes ahead, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child. And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to leave you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure; You really are strong, you really do have worth. And you learn, and you learn With every goodbye you learn." - Veronica A Shoffstall
  4. 4. "So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things.

  8. 8. “It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt

  17. 17. "You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. You don't have charge of the constellations, but you do have charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes." -- Jim Rohn
  18. 18. “take care of your body. It is the only place you have to live.” – jim rohn

If the answer is no, then here's my question: ‘Why not?’ Why wouldn't you have a superior financial plan that is taking you to the places you want to go?" -Jim Rohn
  24. 24. “One of the interesting things about success is that we think we know what it means. A lot of the time our ideas about what it would mean to live successfully are not our own. They’re sucked in from other people. And we also suck in messages from everything from the television to advertising to marketing, etcetera. These are hugely powerful forces that define what we want and how we view ourselves. What I want to argue for is not that we should give up on our ideas of success, but that we should make sure that they are our own. We should focus in on our ideas and make sure that we own them, that we’re truly the authors of our own ambitions. Because it’s bad enough not getting what you want, but it’s even worse to have an idea of what it is you want and find out at the end of the journey that it isn’t, in fact, what you wanted all along.” – alain de botton
  25. 25. Whenever anything happens to you, your brain asks two questions: Will this mean pain or pleasure? What must I do now to avoid pain and/or gain pleasure? The answers are based on generalizations—the beliefs you've formed about what leads to pain and pleasure. While such shortcuts allow us to function, they can also severely limit our lives. Some people, for example, have generalized that they're incompetent because they've occasionally failed to follow up, and unfortunately, generalizations can become selffulfilling prophecies. – tony robins

  27. 27. “Most dreams take a lot of hard work, commitment and training. If yours doesn't, you're not dreaming big enough.” – Robert Kiyosaki

  29. 29. “Disturb us, Lord, We have ceased to dream of eternity When we are too well pleased with And in our efforts to build a new earth, ourselves, We have allowed our vision When our dreams have come true Of the new Heaven to dim. because we have Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, dreamed too little, To venture on wider seas When we arrived safely Where storms will show your mastery; Because we sailed too close to the Where losing sight of land, shore. We shall find the stars. Disturb us, Lord, when We ask You to push back With the abundance of things we The horizons of our hopes; possess And to push into the future We have lost our thirst In strength, courage, hope, and love.” For the waters of life; - Sir Francis Drake Having fallen in love with life,

  43. 43. “If you don’t get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don’t want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can’t hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is a law, and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.”

  52. 52. "Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist: it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die." - John Taylor Gatto
  53. 53. "Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness.

Nothing will ever again be blackand-white." ― Mark Jenkins
