Believe in yourself even when no one else does. If someone tells you that you can't do it, prove them wrong.
Ambition is a great trait to have and is a trait that we may all acquire if we are just willing to work hard towards becoming it. Ambition is a priceless trait, it is grown and cultured in each and every individual that it lies in, and in some it grows much bigger than it might in others.
Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better. -Maya Angelou
Doing better requires us to do a few things. If we want to do better, we have to come to terms with the decisions that we are making on a daily basis. We all have our demons, and to get past them we have to admit that there is a need for us to admit they are present in our lives so that we may finally be able to face them. To do better we have to change our normal thought processes, and attempt to think in more positive and productive terms.
Focus on your blessings, not your misfortunes. Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses. Relax and let life come to you... try not to force anything.
Though we can all make excuses as to why certain things may happen in our lives, and it may be tempting to show the world only what is good about us, and none of our flaws. Living life in this manner isn't truly living a full life at all. Sure no one wants anybody to see them mess things up, and no one wants to be viewed as a failure, but one is truly only viewed as failure not when they fall down, but only after they refuse to get back up.
Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and think of what could go right.
A lot of times when try to focus too intently on a dream we end up delaying starting our plans because they may not be mapped out as precisely as we would like for them to be. One of the biggest ways to get ahead is to actually get started. The sooner a person starts, the sooner the person will complete whatever it is that they are out to complete. Getting started sometimes requires a person to take big leaps of faith in order to hopefully soon see the realization of their dreams.
You can't please everyone. When you're too focused on living up to other people's standards, you aren't spending enough time raising your own.
One of the biggest lessons we must take with us in life to live as productively as intellectuals is that there will always be people in our lives who are jealous, or who just don't vibe with us, for whatever reason is inside of their heads. Instead of living a life seeking to please these types of people, by not being ourselves, and restraining from speaking up about things we know in our hearts we should speak up about, we have to give the people that we cant be ourselves around the delete button.
The 3 C's of life: choices, chances and changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.
The choices that you make each day will eventually become who you are. Who you are will eventually become who you were. Who you were will eventually become memories to the people you affected throughout your lifetime, and will also help to influence people for generations to come, whether they recognize that these influences came from you or not.
It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there's nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized. -Wayne Dyer
One of the biggest tools to fight against worry and preparation in a person's everyday life is to prepare for life as much as possible. Those who are willing to put in that extra study time, and learn from books are the ones who will have a leg up in life.
Sometimes loneliness isn't such a bad end after all, sometimes it brings out the hidden potential in us and make us realize of how far we can go on our own without no ones help.
Though we see many people who arent as socially active as others we may know, we have to understand that just because someone is more of a loner, does not mean that they are necessarily unhappy with their lives.
