Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say

Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say
And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
Not everyone means everything they say. This is a tough life lesson to learn, especially to those people who grew up instilled with principles of honesty and integrity deeply embedded in their psyche. As we face the real world, we would like to think that everyone is honest, and has the best intentions, but this is simply not true. We have to take the world for what it is.

This doesn't mean that we should go around being dishonest just because everyone else is but it does mean that we shouldn't be so naive to believe that what everyone says is true. An old saying might be a little too harsh but it is something to think about "Believe only half of what you see, and none of what you hear." Learn to trust those who only deserve your trust and no one who doesn't.

Confront The Dark Parts Of Yourself
Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength. -August Wilson
Every single person has things that they are committed to doing that they know aren't good for them, and maybe are even harmful to others. Your demons are toxic and cancerous to your overall being, because they may not seem to be harming you much when you allow them in your life. Eventually we must all come to a point in time that we stand up for ourselves, for our health, and for our dreams. If we ever want to reach and sustain success and happiness we must be able to live a life of balance, a life full of dedication and full of spirit.

Don't Let Society Manipulate You

Don't Let Society Manipulate You
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
If you choose to allow yourself to be manipulated by society, it most certainly will impose its will on your life. In this cold, tough world we have to be willing to think for ourselves, speak for ourselves, and be ourselves as much as we possibly can. If we choose to allow ourselves to be persuaded by large populations of people who are dedicated to a moral system of beliefs that we totally disagree with, we are choosing to let society manipulate us.

It Is In All Of Us To Defy Expectations

It Is In All Of Us To Defy Expectations
It is in all of us to defy expectations, to go into the world and to be brave and to want to need to hunger for adventures, to embrace change and chance and risk so that we may breathe and know what it is to be free.
When you allow for yourself to step out of your comfort zone, you then allow yourself to finally live. Adventure is worthwhile, because it is the only thing that truly allows for a person to feel as though they have lived. A person with an adventurous mind is one that has gained much knowledge not by what others have told him, but by seeing life and the world for his or herself, through their own eyes.

Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover
If you judge a book by it's cover, you might miss out on an amazing story.
Living a righteous life full of fulfillment is living a life without the judgment of others. Sure there are people who hold views that we don't agree with at all morally, and there are those whose outward appearances may tempt us to steer clear as they may not be pleasantly accepted as social norms, but we must never let what we find disagreeable on the outside prevent us from establishing connections with people who actually may be of great help to us someday.

No Sacrifice, No Victory
If you want something you've never had then you've got to do something you've never done.
A fulfilled life is a life that was made by a person willing to sacrifice one thing to achieve the results of being happy. Life is never easy and if we want to make it a success we have to be willing to sacrifice today, in these very moments so that we may best be able to do so.
