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 measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.” – Vince Lombardi

You have so much to give. If you keep it inside you, then you have not given the world what it has given you. You cannot be measured as a full person if you keep all of you to yourself. That’s selfish. Give back to the world and it will continue to give to you.

“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.

“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.” – Oscar Wilde

The human mind is capable of incredible things. Learn to use it and live outside of your means. Get out of your comfort zone to learn news things about yourself and the people around you. An imagination is a terrible thing to waste.

“The short words are best, and the old words are the best of all.” – Winston Churchill

When you find yourself speaking to the world as Mr. Churchill did, you must find a way to make your words heard by all. He had a knack for saying things in the plainest language. There are very few Churchill quotes that have any new vocabulary words. He’s not going to have a word of the day calendar, though I’m sure his lexicon was quite profound.

“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.
