“What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.” ~Tim Ferriss

You can use your fear to point you in the direction of what is most important to you, rather than be hard on yourself for feeling fear in the first place. If you aren’t afraid of doing something, it generally means you don’t find it very important, or you wouldn’t have that fear.

In this way fear can help us drill down to the things that we simply must do. Part of that is going to entail getting over that fear, or learning to live with it so that you can still get the things done that need getting done.

“Light tomorrow with today.” ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Today is your opportunity to make your tomorrow better. If you think of it from the point that your today is the result of your yesterdays, it’s clear that what you are doing today is either moving your forward or moving you backward.

light-tomorrow-with-today

That’s why you want to grab today by the horns and make the most of it as you can. Do that enough times and you’ll start to see signs that your todays are getting better, which only sets you up better and better for tomorrow. You can find yourself in negative or positive spiral based on how well you are spending your days.

“What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Here’s a take on the “Actions speak louder than words. adage. It’s true that words can often be contradicted by the actions we take. This may be because words are easy to spew out, but you can only perform so many actions in a day.

Actions must be more thought out and are a more accurate measure of what you really intend to do. Make sure to choose your actions wisely, as others will come to their conclusions about you based on what you do rather than what you say. Many times there is a big discrepancy between what is said and what is done, which is why what you do matters more.

“Don’t count the days, make the days count.” ~Muhammad Ali

It can be dangerous to start counting down your days, because you want to make each one count. But many times there will be an event coming up that makes you start counting down how many days until it arrives.

But each day between now and then is important, and you don’t want to breeze over any part of your life just to get to the next, seemingly better part. Putting the most of yourself into each day will make it so you never have any regrets about how you spent your time here, and you’ll know that you really did make it count each day.

“It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.” ~Howard Ruff

Being prepared is one thing, but this quote is asking you to take it to the next level. Noah was tipped off that the flood was coming, but life doesn’t always work out that way. You almost have to assume that something bad is going to happen at some point in your future, so why wait until it occurs to try to deal with it then?

Prepare yourself for a disaster and if it doesn’t come even better. But if it does you’ll be able to handle it better and get through it more easily. It’s not a form of negative thinking to prepare for hardship, in fact it is a way of preserving your positive thinking even through rough times.

“Choosing a goal and sticking to it changes everything.” ~Scott Reed

inspirational-quotes-change-your-life-self-development

Getting a goal is not enough, you have to stick with it if you want to accomplish it. The reason that sticking to it changes everything is that it means you’ll actually achieve your goal and then you can establish your next goal from a totally different place. It’s good not to set too many goals from the place where you are now, because after achieving a few of them you’ll be in a different place, and you can make better goals from there. You don’t want to limit yourself by your current situation. Knock out a few goals first and then reevaluate what you want to do from your new place.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” ~Gandhi

It’s easy to get frustrated by all the violence and pain being experienced around the world, and even easier to feel helpless about it. But rather than sitting around waiting for the world to change, it’s better to start making changes within your own sphere of influence.

you-must-be-the-change-you-want-to-see-in-the-world

The theory behind this quote is that if everyone tended to their own selves the world would be the way we all want it to be. What can you do today that would help make the world around you a better place? By making the changes you wish the world would make you instantly and automatically make the world better.

“What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” ~Napoleon Hill

This is an amazing quote that may sound simple but has a lot behind it. It’s saying that whatever you can dream up in this life, you can achieve. But it brings up an important element, one that many overlook. You have to believe that you can achieve it, which is the part that trips up most people. You can have a big goal, or a big dream, but if you don’t believe you deserve it, or you don’t believe you can accomplish it, you won’t. Spend equal time on building up your belief and dreaming about what you want to accomplish.

“The dreamers are the saviors of the world.” ~James Allen

Those that dare to dream move the world forward. Everything that’s ever been accomplished by mankind started off as a dream in someone’s mind before it became a reality. That includes the city and country you live in, the house where you reside, and the car that you drive. It’s all thanks to the dreamers out there, and you can be one of them, just as long as you make it a priority to dream and then carry out the visions of your dreams. The real saviours are those that dream and then follow through on their dreams with inspired action.

“Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene.” ~Arthur Christopher Benson

You take yourself with you wherever you go, so running off to a new place is no way to escape. You’ll just end up replicating the same patterns that got you where you are in the first place. But if you work on changing habits that don’t serve you, and replacing them with ones that do you’ll notice that you no longer feel like you have to escape from the situation, and can feel more comfortable in your surroundings. You can still use a change of scenery to help uproot you from your rut and make lasting changes.
