We Cannot Change The Cards We Are Dealt, Just How We Play The Hand
We cannot change the cards we are dealt. Just how we play the hand. -Randy Pausch
Many times the cards that life yields us are just that, and many times our fate is a result of things that happen. One big principle that we are all taught in our lives over and over is that things don't just happen to us, things happen because of the choices we made, no matter what hand we are dealt when we are given our lives.

There have been many of men, men who have come from small backgrounds, and throughout their whole lives stayed in their backgrounds, and never made so much as a peep to change the world. And there are also powerful men and women. Men and women who may have come from small, less fortunate backgrounds, but ended their life richer in more areas than people who were given so much more growing up. Play the hand you were dealt. Don't complain, don't criticize others, just run your race.

Think Of Yourself As Becoming The Person You Want To Be
You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.
If you ever want to be more than what you are right now you have to start thinking of yourself as the person that you want to become. If you continue to do the same things on a daily basis that you do now that help to keep you who you are now, you will never be anything more than that person. Rather than live a life full of monotony, embrace change, embrace taking risks, and embrace being the person that you know you can be.

Do Whatever Makes You Happy And Be With Whoever Makes You Smile
Life only comes around once, so do whatever makes you happy, and be with whoever makes you smile.
If something that you are doing in life makes you happy, then it is best that you stick to it. There are too many times that we only concern ourselves that will give us status in society and forget about the things in life that are truly important. In everything that we do we must thoroughly examine our own motives for doing so. Life is never easy, and deciding to do the right thing is made hard when we are able to closely see the seemingly swell results of committing acts in our lives that aren't for us to commit.

You Don't Have To Do What Everyone Else Is Doing

You Don't Have To Do What Everyone Else Is Doing
Sometimes I have to remind myself that I don't have to do what everyone else is doing.
No one is perfect, and it is because of this very reason that we sometimes are able to get caught up in popular opinion, which may lead to us acting in life as others want us to, instead of acting in life as we really desire to on the inside. Don't fall into the pressure of pleasing your peers, because if you make your life about pleasing others, you, yourself will never be pleased.

Don't Be So Quick To Point  Out The Flaws In Other People's Lives
Don't be so quick to point out the flaws in other people's lives when you are not willing to look at the flaws in your own.
Never judge anyone. There was once an old man, that sat at the same park bench day after day. A younger gentleman that went running in this same park almost daily always saw this happy, smiling old man, and always wondered why he would just come to the park, sit and smile. Finally after about a year, his curiosity got the best of him, and he stopped to ask the older gentleman why exactly he sits in the same spot daily and just smiles at everyone who passes by.
