“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”
– Dr. Seuss
You are in charge of your life. No one can do it for you.
“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”
– Marcus Aurelius
Stand up and take action.
“To help yourself, you must be yourself. Be the best that you can be. When you make a mistake, learn from it, pick yourself up and move on.”
– Dave Pelzer
You will make mistakes. It’s just a fact. Don’t let the fear stop you.
How much do you value your capacity to learn new things?
We all have the capacity to learn until we die.
Life is better when you keep the flame of learning new things alive.
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
Make a difference in your life as you keep on learning.
“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and diligence.”
– Abigail Adams
Too many people think that have learned enough. And then, they wonder why they get left behind. They became obsolete.
Realities are built from our relation with our surrounding. We base our life on it.
“The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.”
– Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Reality is created from imagination. So reality is real because someone else imagined it.
You have the power to shape reality. It’s up to you to use it or not.
“Fiction is an elemental force, which has the power to shape reality in its own image – or images, I should say – because reality, like light, exists not only as a single point or particle, but also as an array of possibilities.”
– Ruth Ozeki
Looking at reality, remember that it has been imagined by someone else before it could be like that.
All great success started with a dream.
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
– Harriet Tubman
You have all you need.
Don’t stay idle because you think you don’t know enough.
Take the first step with what you know. As you keep going on, you’ll learn more and adjust as you go along.
Breaking free from hate and anger is the way to true freedom.
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
So many people are getting burned because it’s what they have been told to do. Learning is great, but experiences will always straight things up to what is real.
Many people don’t want to face the reality that their anger and hate will never build anything good.
“Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.”
Love can heal the damage done with hatred and anger. It has to be sincere.
Build a world of love with your actions. Start with your actions and they will influence the world around you. Like a ripple on water, your actions will affect further than just the people that are directly around you.
At one time or another, we have to deal with a limited amount of money. Its OK, we all have to make choices.
I believe that we should invest in ourself. I buy Book, DVD, CD or tickets for conference every month. I visit second hand book shop to find low price books. I do my best to keep my spending under a level that I can afford.
If you are like me and looking to invest in yourself on a budget, then I could give you some tips on what you can find online for a low price.
I’ll start with “FREE” audio book that you can find on YouTube.
The compound effect
by Darren Hardy
How to win friend and influence people
by Dale Carnegie
Think and grow rich
By Napoleon Hill
Those are some of the ones I found, but you can find a lot more. There’s also a lot of video conference from some of the top people around the world. When it’s free, all you have to invest, is your time.
My second tips would be to visit the used bookstore in your city. Salvation Army are selling second books at a very low price around here, you should take a look at the one you have in your town. As long as the text is all in there, if the book is about something I want to learn about, I buy it. I’m not looking for perfect book, I’m looking for interesting ones.
You could also find DVDs and CDs in those stores.
Second hand are great when you are on a budget.
Success is directly linked to mistakes.
The more mistakes you make, the more chances you have to reach success. But you need to learn from your mistakes and do your best to avoid them.
“The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way.”
– Dale Carnegie
“Adjust”, and keep going on.
Quitter don’t end up successful.
