Every single human being has a story; has been through hard times; has challenges to overcome; but do not let the story epitomize your now. Every story provides every human being with two options: 1. To use it as an excuse. 2. To use it as leverage to catapult forward. Which option will you choose?”

“We are wired as human beings to have benchmarks; to have specific aims to reach towards. They are what keep us moving. In addition to that, we are also wired to seek fulfillment; i.e. we also have a need to enjoy whats going on within us, and around us, in this moment. Individually, we have a propensity to sway more towards one or the other, but the we all do need an element of both. Have a balance, make goals, but also enjoy everything that already is.”

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”

Henry David Thoreau

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Marianne Williamson
