That is what fear does to us. You’ve probably heard that fear stands for False Evidence Appearing Real! We can build up fear in our minds because of something we think might be true. We may picture the worst possible outcome and let that keep us from trying something or going for a dream. The more you focus on fear, the more paralyzed with fear you become. What if they reject my idea? What if they don’t like me? What if nobody wants to buy my products or service? What if I make a fool of myself? What if I try and fail? Many of us have experienced some or all of the above! It may not be fun, but you can learn to try something else, keep moving forward anyway, and try till you succeed. Why not try a different perspective: What if they like my idea? What if they like me? What if they like my products and services and want to buy? What if I master my presentation? What if I try and succeed?
Your competition isn’t other people. Your competition is your procrastination. Your ego. The unhealthy food you’re consuming. The knowledge you neglect. The negative behavior you’re nurturing and your lack of creativity. Compete against that.”
Love your life. Take a picture of everything. Tell people you love them. Talk to random strangers. Do things that you're scared to do. So many of us die, and no one remembers a thing we did. Take your life and make it the best story in the world. Don't waste it.
If you don't heal what hurt you, you'll bleed on people who didn't cut you.
Should you ever find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, jealousy, lies, and insecurities...Don't be mad. Remember things could be worse: You could be them.
Don't feel sad over someone who gave up on you, feel sorry for them because they gave up on someone who would have never given up on them.
Shout out to everyone making progress that no one recognizes because you never let anyone see your darkest moments. You've been silently winning battles and transforming yourself, be proud of every step you're making in the right direction. Keep going because you got this.
People don't abandon people they love. People abandon people they were using.
The best feeling of happiness is when you're happy because you've made someone else happy.
Stay positive! The only difference between a good day and a bad day is your attitude.
