“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.

“Say and do something positive that will help the situation; it doesn’t take any brains to complain.” – Robert A. Cook

If you listen closely to groups of people talk, you may hear many of them all complaining together. Misery does love company, right? Complaining is small thinking, but being positive is grand. Offer some kind of positive outlook on the topic, or offer a solution and see how that makes you feel.

“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life is a journey, but let’s not get lost in travel. Instead, you must focus on what is within you. The journey of life will change you and unlock what is inside of you. As you evolve during the journey, you have to be sure that all of the changes you are making are positive. Don’t allow missteps in the journey be permanent.

“If you really want the key to success, start by doing the opposite of what everyone else is doing.” – Brad Szollos

If you want to be better than everyone else, start to do what they are not doing. You will not become greater than them by doing exactly what they are doing. That will do you no good and only keep you below them. Learn how to be different and think outside the box.

“To succeed, you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you.” – Tony Dorsett

Think about a time when you had a project that excited you. Do you remember the motivation that made it easy to get out of the bed in the morning so you could work on it? Do you recall the passion and happiness you felt? To be successful, find more of that passion.

“You are more powerful than you know; you are beautiful just as you are.” ~ Melissa Etheridge

This is a beautiful quote that will help you realize just how powerful you really are, and to stop spending so much time trying to become beautiful. You already are beautiful, and the power you possess will reveal itself over your lifetime. It’s enough to know that you have power, and that it will continue to grow and expand as you allow it. The good news is that realizing you’re beautiful just as you are right now is the first step to harnessing the power within you and accomplishing more in life.

“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.

“Your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

It doesn’t matter if others believe you can succeed, or that you will succeed. No one can give you the resolution to succeed except yourself. It’s important to stoke those fires regularly, even daily so that you don’t get into the mentality that you can’t succeed or that failure is an option. Remember that we measure success personally, so that your idea of what it means to succeed is different than other people’s. Follow your own path to your own vision of success and stay the course.

“We must use time as a tool, not as a couch.” – John F. Kennedy

Time should be used to work for you. Either you’re using time to get things done, or you are using time to wait for things to develop. Time is a great tool when used effectively, but as it is said here, it is not best to us it as a couch.

“Not knowing you can’t do something, is sometimes all it takes to do it.” ~ Ally Carter

It’s funny to think that you may accomplish things without even knowing that you couldn’t do it. It’s kind of like the placebo effect, but in reverse. If someone would have told you you couldn’t do it, maybe you wouldn’t have been able to do it. Think of all of the things you think you can’t do, and question why you think you can’t do them. Can you not do them because you know you can’t, or because you tried them and were not successful? It may be time to try things you once thought you couldn’t do.
