Don't take this quote the wrong way!! This is not freedom for you to do whatever you want because you are going to come in for criticism regardless. If something is wrong, if you hurt someone or make a rash decision than the criticism is justified!
What this quote IS about however is the fact that you WILL face criticism. If you're pushing boundaries and trying new things, this is always going to sit funny with some people so, criticism can be a positive sign. Constructive criticism, if you are open to receiving it, is also a very useful tool in self development as it allows you to see other perspectives.
Not much needs to be said about this one! Smile, enjoy the little things, enjoy the big things, enjoy what is coming and enjoy what has been. Life is all about being happy and this happiness is infectious!
Smile at people you know, smile at people you don't. Spread your happiness and you will feel the people around you doing the same.
The pride we feel for the people we care about, the strength their love brings and courage we show in order to protect them are often more powerful than anything we can muster for ourselves.
Ultimately, this life is all about the people we share it with. Find those people who make your life worth living and never let them go. Let their strength support you and drive you toward your dreams as you push them toward theirs.
I can't imagine how the world would be if we didn't have all the things this man brought to it.
His mind was superior to most to begin with it would seem but, with having no choice but to spend all his time inside his head, he developed a mind that may never be equalled. His desire to share his knowledge and the grace with which he did it was beautiful.
Let him be the ultimate reminder that no matter what people say you can and can't do, your life is what YOU make it.
We think we know ourselves and we think we know what we are capable of but, chances are, you are capable of so much more!
It's the bad things in life that test us. They test our resolve, our character, our beliefs and our physical being but these tests are what allow us to learn about our strengths and show them to the world.
Think back to all the bad things you've survived. You wouldn't have chosen for them to happen but I bet you can see how you have grown because of them!
I don't usually post "Unknown" quotes but I really think this one is important.
I talk a lot about self-review and adaptability. It's important that after reviewing and adapting, you trust yourself. If you KNOW your worth and trust that what you are doing is right and worthwhile, just because someone else doesn't see it doesn't mean your value decreases or that you're wrong.
A good example is money. Imagine a £10 note, a $10 bill or a 10€ note. The worth is fixed and in their own economies, no matter what state they are in, this worth is recognised. In another economy, somewhere its worth isn't recognised this note might be overlooked especially if its dirty, crumpled or torn. It's still worth what it always was but this means more in some circumstances than others.
Know your worth and know that another's opinion DOES NOT reduce it. #communication_is_king#understanding_is_everything#work#value#wealth#confidence
Trying something new is always brave. There will always be risks and yes, it might fail but that alone shouldn't stop you trying.
The biggest killer of our dreams? Our own doubts. Be rational, if it's a risk you shouldn't take because you have relevant experience and know it's too risky then fine, but don't let the fact that something completely unrelated failed put you off something new.
I talk about being strong a lot. Mentally and physically we strength as an asset and it is.
Sometimes though, true strength is knowing when to give, when to bend rather than break. This might mean picking your battles, letting something slide in order to focus on something else, allowing something small to affect you in order to prevent something bigger.
Leadership is all about decision making but sometimes we forget to apply these decision making skills to our own lives. Think about where you need to be flexible in the short term to help you with your long term goals.
Enlightenment is a big word but think of it as being able to live your life without the weight of the world bearing down on you. Personal enlightenment is about understanding what is best for you, what allows you to live this kind of life.
True enlightment is when you can also see, feel and allow other people to walk their own paths. Help them find their way, this will in turn you help you.
Everything was done for the first time once. Up until that point, it seemed impossible.
It's amazing how much we rely on seeing something in order to believe it. Imagine the physics involved with the bikes in this picture, until you see this in real life, riders' elbows touching the track, you'd think it impossible.
