No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world. – Robin Williams

Those thoughts that are locked inside your head, those conversations you have with friends and family, those are the same ideas and words that can change the world. Put those ideas in motion and when they come to fruition, the world will be better for it.

The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. – Oprah Winfrey

If you are afraid of falling, you will never get to great heights. Stop making excuses. Stop waiting for that perfect moment, that golden opportunity. Those moments do not come. You make them happen.

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. – Carl Sagan

That incredible thing could be yours. You’ll never know unless you go after it. You can’t sit around and wait for things to get better or hope that your life miraculously improves. You have to make things happen for yourself. It will be incredible.

“The things that we love tell us what we are.” – Thomas Aquinas

If your only motivation is money, you will not succeed. If money is a part of that dream, that’s great. What you really have to pursue are those things that you truly love. You will lose any pursuit if it is one dimensional. Pursue what you love and success is guaranteed.

“From a small seed a mighty trunk may grow.” – Aeschylus

When you plant the smallest idea of what you are hoping to have in life, your dreams will grow into a giant tree. Jesus told the story of a mustard seed becoming a strong and mighty tree. When you begin with even the smallest goal, there’s no telling what may grow from those tiny seeds.

“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” – Mary Kay Ash

“It’s a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get It.” – W. Somerset Maugham

We must always strive for the best and never be satisfied with anything less. If you accept less than what you deserve, you will always under value yourself. Learn to understand your own value and never settle for “good enough.”

“First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.” ~ Epictetus

This is a great way to look into the future and pull your current self towards what you want to be. What most people do instead is look at the past and beat themselves up over all of the things they’ve done. That just keeps you stuck in the past, or rather stuck in the moment because you’re not using the present to make for a brighter future. By using this future focused vision, and then starting today to do the things necessary to get you where you’re going, you’ll get there much more quickly.
