  1. “Don’t worry about being successful but work towards being significant and success will naturally follow”

When your motivation comes only from your own desires, it’s difficult to stay motivated. However, if you strive to influence others and make a positive impact on the world, you’ll always find the drive you need.

  1. “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for”

Often times, people miss out in life not because they aimed high and missed. Instead, people are usually too afraid to reach for their ultimate desires. They fear rejection and failure. Hence, they choose to stay near the safety net. Not daring to step out of their comfort zone, they start to merely survive.

  1. “There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction”

Sometimes we get so stuck trying to do the things that aren’t meant for us that we forget other options exist. However, this does not always mean that you should forfeit a goal, you truly believe in. Perhaps, it is life telling you that there is more than one path leading to your destination.

  1. “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never have enough”

The human mind has an interesting way of helping us. You will always see and find what you constantly ponder about. It’s called selective attention. Your brain cannot differentiate on what you want or do not want, it merely seeks out the focal of your directed energy. Therefore, focus on more and you will find more. Vice versa.

  1. “When you undervalue what you do, the world will undervalue who you are”

One of the most important things in life is to know your worth. The world will never compensate your worth; it is up to you to demand your worth. If you are not getting the credit you want, ask for more if you actually deserve it. On the flip side, if you know that you are lacking then improve yourself until you are no longer uncomfortable with yourself.

  1. “You can have it all. Just not all at once”

A common mistake that people make is spreading themselves too thin. Wanting to be the master of all trades is not the issue, the issue is in trying to do everything at once. If we want to succeed in an area, we must put all our energy into that one area. We cannot hop between different subjects, hoping to be great at them.
