To make beautiful music, you have to play all the chords. In relation to everyday life, to make the world a better place, you have to respect everyone, no matter what they look like. The color of our skin does not determine our fate on this earth. The color of our skin does not mean we are inferior or superior to another being.

“If you want to make beautiful music, you must play the black and the white notes together.” – Richard Nixon
“Man is a goal seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he is reaching out and striving for his goals.” – Aristotle
We are all on this planet to reach goals and strive for something that is difficult to obtain. We become lost when we don’t have anything to strive for. We get complacent and comfortable and the years go by and we have not done anything with our lives. Always stay focused on your goal and your purpose in life.
Life is a constant stream of new lessons to be learned. These lessons can only be lived through to understand and learn. One cannot learn from a second hand source about some factors of life. We must learn through our own experience.
“Things change, people change, but you will always be you, so stay true to yourself and never sacrifice who you are for anyone.” – Zayn Malik

“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.” – Viktor E. Frankl
We have little control over the circumstances around us. We are limited to seeking new employment, ending a relationship, dwelling on something or someone we’ve lost, or some other forfeiture.

You get what you deserve. That’s the rule of karma. If you feel you’ve been dealt a bad hand, do something to change your seat at the table. People as a whole are creatures of habit. You have to change those very habits in the core of your being to change what you earn in a physical or material sense.
Make sure that your life is always expanding by being courageous. Having your life shrink is no fun at all, and it does happen if you’re not careful. You can travel the world on a shoestring, start your own business, and find the love of your life all at the same time if you’re courageous enough. On the flip side you can see your friend list shrink, see your bank account dwindle, and end up with the wrong person if you’re not courageous enough. It’s a two-edged sword that you want to be on the right side of.
“If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all.” – Michelangelo
People believe that the best of the best are born that talented. But it like Malcolm Gladwell says. it takes 10,000 hours to truly master any endeavor. The people who have gained great success have gotten that far through dedication and years of practice.
“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” – Oprah Winfrey
Oprah is an oddly polarizing figure. She’s been loved and hated for her successes. She credits all of her success to positivity. When she speaks of her success, she rarely talks about hard work and determination. Rather she focuses on having the right thoughts and the right approach to life and work and values.
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” – Barack Obama
If things aren’t going your way, you only have yourself to blame. You must be the one to enact the change that you need. Chances are, things are in constant motion all around you. Maybe you have become stagnant in your personal or professional life. You must be the one to take the first steps and welcome change.
