Your work is going to fill a large part of your life. And the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. Nothing starts easy. Everything begins at some level of difficulty.
Even waking up requires certain efforts. But one thing beautiful about life is the fact that, what is most difficult is also the most rewarding, and the most satisfying. In the end, some of your greatest pains become your greatest strengths. Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow. We have to deal with pain to find happiness. We have to deal with pain to find us. We become stronger with each bad day, bad relationship, bad past, just everything bad. We can make it all better in the end just by learning from it all. Challenges are what makes us who we are. Some won't appreciate what you say or do, but as long as you speak honestly from the heart, you will be fine. This is not a perfect life, but life loves the person who dares to live it by being real.
Keeping the faith and keeping a hopeful positive attitude is one of the hardest yet most rewarding concepts to understand and to apply into our everyday lives. Through the roughest times in our lives it seems as though all we should and can do is give up. Keeping our heads up to the sky, and keeping a forward resolve, even through times of adversity is essential to making it to where we want to be... in life. Remember that the greatest of people are those who overcame some of the greatest challenges that life had to offer. Maintain hope, for hope is sometimes all you have to hold on to during times where it seems as if all is lost, and that you shouldn't continue forward. Maintain the fight, and keep believing in yourself, in doing so everything else will fall into place, and everything will work out for the greatest good
Our job in this lifetime is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it. Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation. In order to make the best of our lives we have to some...times put our trust in life itself. Life is not easy for any of us, but we must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We have to be willing to take risks, and seize opportunities in order to live up to our potential.
Work as hard as you can day in and day out, stay focused, and with this trust in God, trust in life, and you will not only be blessed, but you will also be able to bless others who may be going through similar things that you went through. Dreams are for those with the courage to pursue them. Good things might come to those who wait but good things do come to those who pursue them with tenacity. Life hands you circumstances, you determine your destiny with your tenacity of personal dreams or goals to take you on your journey so get your pursuing wings on and fly
We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have. Happiness isn't at all a reflection of the wealth that a person may have in the physical sense, but it is a reflection of how wealthy a person may be spiritually and emotionally. Appreciate what you have in your life, remember to bless and inspir...e all that you can, and love your life for what it is right now.
Take chances alot of them. Because honestly, no matter where you end up - and with who, it always ends up just the way it should be. Your mistakes make you who you are, you learn and grow with each choice you make. Everything is worth it. Say how you feel - always. Be you, and be okay with it. Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time. Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest. In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change. Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future. Renew, release, let go. Yesterdays gone. Theres nothing you can do to bring it back. You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Tomorrow is a new day.
In life we do things. Some we wish we had never done. Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads. But they all make us who we are and in the end they shape every detail about us. If we were to reverse any of them we wouldn't be the person we are today. So just LIVE. Make mistakes, have wonderful memories. But never ever second guess who you are, where you have been, and most importa...ntly where it is you're going. On the other side of every breakdown is a breakthrough! KEEP GOING!!!
Obstacles can only hinder you if you choose to not turn them into OPPORTUNITIES, to show how truly strong, powerful, and resilient you really are, KEEP GOING!!! Follow your dreams. Keep your goals in view. Live the life you want to live, and do whatever it takes to make that happen. Don’t allow fear to consume you, instead let it propel you forward. Celebrate the successes no matter how small, because small successes can be just as sweet as the big ones. Stay positive because negativity can kill your dreams.
