Get centered and calm yourself down. An anxious mind can’t take you where you need to go. Recognize that true power resides within you, never outside of you. Keep your eyes on the prize and don’t allow yourself to be thrown off course. There is power in the pursuit of your dream. Continue to go after your dream, regardless of the obstacles, rejection, or things that will be thrown into your path. Go around, go through, or leap over them and remind yourself what this dream really means to you. Going after your dream will give you power that you don’t even know you have. Embrace the challenges because they build character, resiliency and faith. You were born to succeed. You have greatness within you.
Les Brown (via freeromantics)
We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us.
Thich Nhat Hanh (via freeromantics)
Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged (via observando)
