If you’re not willing to take #risks to get what you want, then you’re not very likely to get it. More often than not, one has to let go of things as they are in order to reach for the way they want them to be. You can’t work for your future while living in your #past.
If you’re not where you want to be in life, always remember that what you’re feeling is just a sentence on a page in an entire book that makes up the story of your life. And the general feel & outcome of your story is written with the actions you take on a daily basis.
There are over 7 billion people on the planet. If you want to be #remarkable you have to do more than simply exist. Working on being consistently #kind #compassionate #openminded & taking #personalresponsibility for yourself and your impact on the world is a good place to start.
The times that humanity makes you want to crawl under a rock are not the times to remain quiet and do nothing. They are precisely the times that people are needed to #leadbyexample with acts that demonstrate the best of what we all have to offer.
For those struggling, remember, “#ThisTooShallPass”. But it passes faster when we focus on the steps we can take to change our lives for the better, no matter how small those steps may be. Because over time, even little steps can carry us a great distance.
In a world of negativity, every positive act you perform, no matter how small, not only helps to set a good example, it helps to diminish the effectiveness of those who spew hate and negativity.
If you want to do some good then literally do some good. Make a positive difference in someone’s life. Do the things you wish more people would do.
What you do for people and the moments and memories you help create can literally change a person’s life (including your own).
It’s OK to be concerned, angry, and upset about the state of things. It’s OK to speak out against hate, intolerance, and injustice. It’s OK to stand up for what you believe is morally right. Just be sure that when you do so, you do it in a way that has a positive impact and doesn’t just add to the negative energy that you oppose. Convert your positive (or negative) energy into positive action. Lead by example by performing actions that you can be proud of no matter how you are feeling.
Make sure children and adults alike can see that there is far more to the world than the things that get shown in the news. That there is far more good in the world than hate. And far more people wishing to create something beautiful than those who wish to destroy it.
Some people may be beyond reach, but there are still countless individuals of all ages and all walks of life in the world that could use the guidance of your good example.
Don’t ever let your disapproval for anyone or anything turn you into someone you don’t want to be.
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.
