My father could have been a great comedian but he didn’t believe that that was possible for him. So he made a conservative choice: Instead, he got a safe job as an accountant. And when I was 12 years old, he was let go from that same job and our family had to do whatever it took to survive. I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which is that you can fail at what you don’t want. So you might as well take the chance at doing what you love. – Jim Carrey
So many of us choose our paths out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach of reality and ridiculous to expect. So we never dare to ask the universe for it.
When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way that it is. And that your life is to live your life inside the world and try not to get into too much trouble. And maybe, get an education and to get a job and make some money, and have a family. But life can be a lot broader than that when you realise one simple thing – and that everything single thing around us, that we call life, is made up of people that are no smarter than you. – Ashton Kutcher
Find out what it is you want, then go out after it as if your life DEPENDS on it, why? Because it does. But what do we say? “There will always be tomorrow.” Oh no, there is no guarantee you will show up tomorrow. There are a lot of people who were here yesterday, but they’re not here today. There are a lot of opportunities that were around yesterday; they’re not here today. – Les Brown
There’s no guarantees in life, right? But there is one guarantee, if you don’t take action there will be no outcome at all, no positive outcome. The only outcome will be that, you didn’t achieve anything. You didn’t achieve what you want. See a lot of people think that failure is a step backwards. No, no, no, no. Failure is a step forward; a step forward in the right direction. Every time you fail you learn something from it, you gain something from it, you feel less anxiety when you’re doing it again. You want to think that’s a step backward? That’s progress in every sense of the word.
Right, so these dreams come to you, these ideas, these visions come to you for a reason. And you can either act them out, or not. And there’s a higher power at play.
I want you to look at your life right now. And think about something that’s important to you. Something that gives your life a sense of value. Think about something that you would like to have or something that you would like to create for you, or your family, or for society. I want you to hold this thought in mind. And one of the first things I want you to do is don’t worry about the inner conversation that you’re going to have. Don’t worry about how you’re going to do it. That’s going to come. You’re going to develop a plan of action, you will find a way, you’ll become the kind of person that will attract the resources. Everything you need in order to make that a reality.
If you help enough people get what they want, you can have everything you want.
What is it that you looked at some point in time and you realized that you couldn’t do it. That you talked yourself out of it. Whatever it is, break it back out there. How are you going to do it? That will come to you in due time. So you don’t get in life what you want ladies and gentlemen; you get in life what you are. Not what you want. See the good news is that we can always become more by working to develop ourselves. So the first process of making this your decade, you’ve got to begin to look at your life. And where are you right now? What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? What gives your life a sense of fulfillment, a sense of joy? What does a full and rich life mean to you? What is it that you can love doing 7 days a week, that would bring a smile to your face?
I still have a dream. It is a dream people alluded, the American dream. I have a dream.
Find out the reasons that you do what you do. Find out the reasons, that will make you strong, that will make you walk by faith and not by sight.
See I know something about you… even not knowing you… that you’ve got greatness within you. You have the ability to do things that you can’t even begin to imagine. You have talents and skills in you that you haven’t even began to reach for yet.
Let’s keep it real, if it was easy, everybody would do it.
When you’re working at your dreams, somebody said, “The harder the battle, the sweeter the victory.” Oh It’s sweet too. See, when you work as hard during a struggle, what you become in the process is more important than the dream. That’s far more important; the kind of person you become. The character that you build, the courage that you develop, the faith that you’re manifested. It’s something that you get up in the morning and look yourself in the mirror, and you’re a different kind of person. You walk with a different kind of spirit.
Doesn’t matter what happens to you. The only thing that matters is, what are you going to do about it?
Easy, is not an option. It’s hard living. Life is hard.
Our deepest fear is not that we’re inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we’re powerful beyond measure.
