The most valuable lessons of our lives…

Excerpt from: my book series

[This line is actually from the prologue of my book, which is now online here.]

the-most-valuable-lessons-of-our-lives-zero-dean

Hardships are not only not the end of us, they are often responsible for what become the most valuable lessons of our lives. No matter what the challenge may be, always remember that not only will it pass, there always exists within it an opportunity to become better, wiser, and stronger because of it.

The path to one’s goals isn’t linear

Excerpt from: my book series

areas-of-progress-zero-dean

On many occasions, the answer to problems in one area of your life will come as a result of making progress somewhere else.

Refuse to waste time being deterred by something you can’t do and focus on something else that you can. Sometimes the rewards for your efforts on one path will help provide you with what you need to go down another.

The fire you light within yourself

Excerpt from: my book series

the-fire-you-light-within-yourself-zero-dean

Along the way to achieving whatever it is you desire, make sure your mindset is conducive to creating positive thought processes that reinforce your efforts.

Because until one changes the way they think, they will continue to follow familiar patterns in life. An example of this is when people start new endeavors with enthusiasm (or make New Year’s resolutions), but then fail to find the motivation necessary to follow through after obstacles arise.

The fire you light within yourself must not only burn hot enough to stay alight during turbulent times, it mustn’t be dependent on things you have no control over.
