Don’t try to change the world; just change yourself. Why? Because the whole world is only relative to the eyes that are looking at it. Your world actually only exists for as long as you exist and with the death of you, includes the death of your world. Therefore, if there is no peace in your heart; you will find no peace in this world, if there is no happiness in your life; you will find no happiness anywhere around you, if you have no love in your heart; you will not find love anywhere and if you do not fly around freely inside your own soul like a bird with perfectly formed wings; then there will never be any freedom for you regardless if you are on a mountaintop removed from all attachments to all of mankind! Even the mountaintop cannot give you freedom if it is not already flying around there inside your own soul! So I say, change yourself. Not the world.
To change the world around us, we need to change ourselves first.
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
Challenge yourself everyday to do better and be better. Remember, growth starts with a decision to move beyond your present circumstances.
If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise. The way to activate the seeds of your creation is by making choices about the results you want to create.
You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing and falling over.
It’s never too late to be what you might have been.
You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be.
Sometimes you have to kind of die inside in order to rise from your own ashes and believe in yourself and love yourself to become a new person.
You can get what you want or you can just get old.
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.
Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.
You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
Each of us has the right and the responsibility to assess the roads which lie ahead, and those over which we have traveled, and if the future road looms ominous or unpromising, and the roads back uninviting, then we need to gather our resolve and, carrying only the necessary baggage, step off that road into another direction. If the new choice is also unpalatable, without embarrassment, we must be ready to change that as well.
Everyday is a new life to a wise man.
You’re always free to change your mind and choose a different future, or a different past.
Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
Every morning we get a chance to be different. A chance to change. A chance to be better. Your past is your past. Leave it there. Get on with the future part, honey.
Everything started as nothing.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
Wherever you are is the entry point.
This is life. Things get taken away. You will learn to start over many times — or you will be useless.
Forget everything you’ve done. Start over.
If I must start somewhere, right here and now is the best place imaginable.
