“Dream big and dare to fail.” ~Norman Vaughan

Having small dreams and being afraid to fail is the antithesis of this advice, and it’s something many of us do, even though we may not want to admit it. The two go hand in hand, if you are too afraid of failing you’ll keep your dreams on a leash. But if you overcome that fear, and jump out there fully willing to completely fail, you free your mind to dream up new adventures and goals for your life. Failure comes with trying, and a life of not trying will not leave you satisfied, so it’s good to continually put yourself out there.

Champions keep playing until they get it right.” ~Billie Jean King

Think of how many people quit playing before they become a champion. Perhaps they might have made it if they just would have kept playing, making adjustments, and getting better at their craft. If you want to experience more success all you have to do is keep practicing, keep playing against better opponents, and keep learning all that you can. With enough perseverance you’ll find that you become a champion because you’ve spent time “in the trenches and now you know your game better than anyone else and you are dubbed a champion. This is not just applicable to sports, but to several areas of personal development. Which areas of your life do you want to become a champion in?

Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.” ~Yoda

Yoda dropped one of his most famous phrases on Luke when Luke said he would try to move the sunken ship. He pointed out a very true statement. You either accomplish what you set out to do, or you don’t, there is no in between, no grey area called try. Choose to do that one thing that you’ve been “trying to do but have yet to succeed at. Feel that satisfaction that comes with knowing that you did, and that you didn’t just try, or you didn’t do not. You must unlearn what you have learned.

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” ~Frederick Douglass

Struggle often feels like a lack of progress, so it’s nice to turn it on its head and realise that it’s actually the way progress is made. If you’re not struggling you’re probably not challenging yourself enough. The important part is not to let struggle deter you from making that progress. Step one is learning to view struggling as a positive thing, rather than a negative thing. Then you won’t be so hard on yourself if you find that you’re struggling again. It just means you’re learning, growing, and taking on enough to keep you busy.

“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” ~Norman Vincent Peale

It seems like it would be easy enough to change your world if all it takes is changing your thoughts, but thoughts aren’t the easiest thing in the world to change. Many of the thoughts a person has each day are the result of habitual thinking, thinking the same thoughts again and again, day after day. It takes work to try and undo this sort of thinking and have new thoughts. But if you can manage to think more positive thoughts, your world will become more positive. The opposite is also true, which is why you should pay attention to the way your thoughts make you feel.

Terence Donovan game changing photograph

Terence Donovan was generous and gentle; he was also a very wise man.

He was a key part of that English movement in fashion photography in the 1960s and, together with Bailey and Duffy, a photographer one simply had to work with if one’s career were to mean anything. He represented everything that was changing in the world of fashion; his eye was altering the way the world perceived women.

With the help of Donovan’s gritty photographs, the world started to look to London for inspiration, and the whole youth quake was born. Vidal Sassoon was combing out those beehives, giving hair a cut and a freedom it had not experienced in many years; Mary Quant was snipping off skirts into minis that were barely respectable. Donovan was recording all of this, taking us out of frosty locations such as Belgravia to the streets of his youth in the East End.

Теренс Донован был щедр и нежен; он был также мудрецом.

Он был ключевой персоной этого английского движения в фотографиии моды в 1960х и вместе с Бейли и Даффи , фотографом который просто лжен работать с теми чья карьера что-то значила. Он представлял все что менялось в мире моды; его взгляд отличался от того как мир чувствовал женщин. 

С помощью песчаных фотографий Донована, мир начал смотреть на Лондон как вдохновение, так родилось целое молодежное землетрясение. Vidal Sassoon проводил чистку в тех ульях, давая волосам сокращение и свободу  которой не было в течении многих лет; Мэри Куэнт отрезала юбки в minis, которые были едва респектабельными. Донован записывал все это, вынимания нас из морозных местоположений, таких как Высший свет на улицы его юности в Ист-Энде.

kingdom of freedom

Image
On the border of the country where i was going was the men checking the documents and visas. He asks me intelligently couple of questions and then ask me to wait. Minutes was passing very slowly i was hearing my heart bit and every breath i took.  Why i was worry so much? Guess its a question of freedom action and possibilities .
 It was in London airport – the timeless kingdom state. From there was going many trains cars and many different people from all the world. When i got to down town, all was inspiring in a geometric progression: new country, new city, new culture, architecture, people…. and me … pretty good known. The air was sweet and fresh and the lights which were prepared for the celebration time was bringing me in fairy tale. Probably i felt myself like an in dream home town. New for me and full of strangers. From that moment i start  acquaintance with new side of me. Its marvellous what do this new things and events in a life! Seems like a newborn baby start to discover the world from a new list of paper.
 People i meet, places i visit , style of people on the streets, different languages, shopping sales rush all was completed with amazing contrast of calm silence and elegance of architecture. The only thing that was annoying  – eternal raining. All this together was giving me a spirit of freedom and choice of possibilities. After realising this i was asking myself a question: why i was feeling like this exactly here?
Guess coz people are equal, its hard to find difference in classes so on. In my home town, country its completely other story… so many pour citizen living and working in a country which stealing money from its budget. Deep inside i wish to change reality of Ukraine for a better standards. Freedom to talk, to choose, to live, to earn, to create and to develop.
