Make each day

 “Make each day your masterpiece.”John Wooden 

The unexamined life

“The unexamined life is not worth living.” Socrates 

All successful people are big dreamers

 “All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.” Brian Tracy

The struggle for Enlightenment

 “The struggle for Enlightenment, and why so many give up, is that once you liberate yourself from one prison, you find yourself in another. One of the most important attributes of a person on this journey is to have immense perseverance. Never give up.” Hxni 


If you're gonna do it, do with style.

Life is short, be happy.


Show yourself!

A little stressed

Life lesson

"So and so made me so angry"

That's not true. You made yourself angry. Nobody makes you angry. It is an emotion you used. It was you who decided to become angry and it was you who decided to response in anger.

Never give up control.

The buddy system

Life lesson

Center your thoughts on the solution and not on the problem.

You look fine

Life lesson

Know when to let go. If it's depressing you, dragging you down into the dumps, review the reasons and if it isn't the right reasons, get rid of it. Push it out of your life. The negative builds inside your head and will eventually block out all the wonders and magnificent things around you. Don't let that happen. Be aware of it. If it doesn't move you forward or add joy to your life, get rid of it.



Life lesson

Once you get the sense that someone is avoiding you, stay away from them, in fact, run away from them as fast as you can because if that person won't confront you with his or her problem that they have with you, they are going to become a negative issue in your very life at some point. Take them out of your life before that happens. 

Life lesson

Change it. Live your passions.

If you don't have enough time in your life, turn off the TV. It's amazing how much time that will clear up. 

Unhappy in your job? Change jobs, or at the least, plan to change jobs. A paycheck isn't worth your mental health.

Stop looking for the love of your life. That's just dumb. Love takes time and the love of your life takes a lifetime to develop.
