You do have an impact on reality.
“Remember upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all.”
– Alexander the Great
Your action influence the fate of all. Taking action or not, you influence. By not taking action, you choose your action.
“Laws control the lesser man… Right conduct controls the greater one.”
– Mark Twain
Violence is never a good option. Violence will bring violence. In the end, you’ll have to live with what you have done. Even if you did it for the greater good.
“Do unto others as you would have done to you.”
Respect the golden rule.
What you do to others will always come back to you. Sometimes in ways that you can’t associate.
If you keep on learning, you’ll never get old. Learning is the fountain of youth.
“Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.”
– Samuel Ullman
Enthusiasm in life is the way to keep up the need to learn more. When you loose that source of motivation, you loose the will to stay young.
“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.”
– Aldous Huxley
The geniuses are the ones who find ways to keep their enthusiasm. No one can do it for you; you have to get it on your own.
You have the power to choose what you want. Even if there’s pressure from a lot of outside source to push you in one direction or another, in the end you always have the last word. Choose wisely, because the one who’s going to live with it is you.
Imagination is like a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it will become.
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
– Albert Einstein
Reality is built on imagination. We can live in our imagination or in the one of someone else.
“Imagination creates reality.”
– Richard Wagner
Let your imagination build a better world. And maybe it will become.
If you want others to be good with you, be good with others first.
Don’t expect the good to come from where you put it.
Don’t expect that only good will come your way.
If you are doing well from the bottom of your heart. If you are doing it without any expectation. Then good will come to you.
There’s no way to know when it will come, but it will.
“I think we need to look at ourselves first. We should practice what we’re preaching. Otherwise, we are hypocrites.”
– Mo Ibrahim
Talk is cheap. Action is what makes things happen.
Every action, even the smallest ones will have an influence on reality.
Don’t underestimate the power of being idle. No action is influencing reality as much as if you do take action.
From the moment you are aware, you have influence on reality. For good or bad, you shape the world.
We are linked to each other’s.
There’s no me and you. There’s only us.
“When we know ourselves to be connected to all others, acting compassionately is simply the natural thing to do.”
– Rachel Naomi Remen
It’s hard to see that when we do arm to others, we do arm to ourselves.
It’s hard to see that when we give to others, we give to ourselves.
“To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.”
Start to think as us and your life will change.
Be the good you want to see in others. Your own qualities will find people who share them also.
“Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.”
– George Washington
Be true to yourself and you’ll find people that will be the same.
You never bring too much goodness in the world.
Don’t give up. Failures are steps on the staircase of success.
Too many people are taking failure as a warning to stop what they’re doing. It’s more of a warning to let you know that you need to modify something. Then you should keep going on.
“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
– Winston Churchill
Set your goal. Then take the road to get there. It doesn’t matter which road you take, as long as you are heading for your goal.
