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

How long are you going to hold yourself back from having what you really want in life? Your dreams belong to you, but you have to bring them to the present for yourself. When you are making things happen for yourself, the journey itself brings joy to your heart.

“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.

“Getting an idea should be like sitting on a pin; it should make you jump up and do something.” – E. L. Simpson

Though it is true that not every idea needs to come to fruition, many ideas can be used as fuel to get yourself up and going. Don’t let so many wonderful ideas come through your head and fade into forever; trust yourself and your abilities, and get busy creating your life the way you want it.

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. – St. Francis of Assisi

Start today by doing the things that must be done. Maybe you are trying to launch a business, or maybe you’re just trying to get organised. Either way, the first steps are the first steps. Take this opportunity to lay the groundwork. Then, you can stretch yourself. Before you know it, you’ll be doing things that you never thought possible.

“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” – Winston Churchill

If you want to get better at anything, you have to accept change. Change is a natural and beautiful process that leads to growth both internally and externally. Without that change, you would become stagnant and stale. Stop holding on to the status quo, that’s not achieving anything.

“Our homes travel with us. They are wherever we feel loved and accepted.” – Kamand Kojouri

Our homes are not always the places where we grew up or the cities where we lived, They are the places where we are loved and accepted. Home is where we feel safe and are around people who look out for us and help us to grow as people.
