The greatest achievement was,
at first, and for a time,
but a dream.
~ James Allen
If you have knowledge,
let others light their candles in it.
~ Margaret Fuller
What if you began to expect the best from any situation?
Isn’t it possible that you could write
new chapters in your life with happy endings?
Suspend your disbelief?
Take a leap of faith?
After all, what have you got to lose
but misery and lack?
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach
People don’t take opportunities
because the timing is bad,
the financial side unsecure.
Too many people are over-analyzing.
Sometimes you just have to go for it.
~ Michelle Zatly
Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes Courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day
“I will try again tomorrow.”
The entrepreneur in us
sees opportunity everywhere we look,
but many people see only problems
everywhere they look.
The entrepreneur in us is more concerned
with discriminating between opportunities
than he or she is with failing to see the opportunities.
~ Michael Gerber
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes,
then you are making new things, trying new things,
learning, living, pushing yourself,
changing yourself, changing your world.
You’re doing things you’ve never done before,
and more importantly,
you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself.
Make New Mistakes.
Make glorious, amazing mistakes.
Make mistakes no one’s ever made before.
Don’t freeze, don’t stop,
don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or isn’t perfect,
whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
In all realms of life
it takes courage to stretch your limits,
express your power,
and fulfill your potential.
– Suze Orman
Life-fulfilling work is never about the money
– when you feel true passion for something,
you instinctively find ways to nurture it.
– Eileen Fisher
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be
brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’
Actually, who are you not to be? […]
We are all meant to shine, as children do. […]
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
– Marianne Williamson
