“You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.” ~ Henry Ford

This is true because your reputation is built on your actions, not what’s in your head as far as your plans. Plans that stay in your head and never see the light of day will never get you to where you want to be, or to a place where you can have a reputation for being a success. Look at the most successful people in the world and how they got their recognition. It’s because of the things they achieved and did, not for what they said they are going to do.

“The here and now is all we have, and if we play it right it’s all we’ll need.” ~ Ann Richards

The past is only in your head, and the future isn’t here yet, so there’s only one moment that truly matters, and that’s the present moment. No matter what time it is it’s always now, and you have to do the best you can with your now moment because you’ll never get anything else. She’s saying that if you do the best in the now it’s all you’ll ever need because everything else will work itself out. Breath in. Breath out. Go make magic!

“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” ~ William James

Sometimes what we’re working on doesn’t seem like it matters much, especially when we’re doing things for other people when we’d much rather prefer to be doing things for ourselves. But if you put the sort of effort into everything you do as if it all matters, you’ll find that it does make a difference to your life and your mental state in the form of a better feeling. We all want to feel like we’re making a difference, and this quote is a reminder that we are making a difference, it just might not be as big as we’d like, but over time it can get bigger.

“A real girl isn’t perfect and a perfect girl isn’t real.” – Harry Styles

With all of the media we have today, sometimes love is portrayed in an idealistic way that is not really for anybody. People get ideas in their heads from movies, which were written to be perfect. Perfect people are not real and we need to realize that.
