– Elizabeth Gilbert

When I was younger, I spent a lot of time trying to emulate others because I didn’t believe that my plan was valid or worthy. I knew that if I could imitate that other person’s mojo that I would be a lot better off, but that success never came. I finally realized that the key to my personal failure was all about me, and when I changed that, I started to soar.

Take a moment

To think about where you are trying to follow in someone else’s foosteps. Seriously question your reasons and motivations behind that before taking on the day.

A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships.

– Helen Keller

Overcoming those obstacles in our life is best done by chipping away at the problem, until one day you finally realize that you’re free from the trauma altogether. Then, you have a chance to look at your life and say, ‘hey, I overcame this!’ which will better position you for the next challenges. Most of that goodness within the world stems from that persistence and willingness to take risks.

Take a moment

To think about the challenges which are presented to you each day, each hour, each moment, and what you’re going to do to power through them. Most people falter because they’re not willing to take the time to follow through. Are you one of them? Take on the day.

- Oprah Winfrey

You are an amazing individual. Everything that you have within you is a product of your environment and your heritage, but you are unique. That creativity which rests inside is something to which nobody can wrestle. All you have to do is capture that desire and talent and run with it. Finding the courage that you need is the most difficult, but that courage can be summoned. You can do whatever you set your mind to.

Take a moment

To consider the risks that you are not taking toward your personal goals and purposes. Take a moment to think about the light that you have which you can offer the world. Through those personal goals, through that purpose, you can soar. Now, take on the day.

Your Three Motivational Quotes For Tuesday, March 06, 2012

6 Mar

– Emily Dickinson

Every day, every moment offers an opportunity. I consider it to be akin to planting seeds within the garden. You are never sure what you are going to get, what is going to flourish and you might not even be sure if something is going to grow, but there are always numerous chances to make that light the one by which you are guided. Sure, there is pain now, but that pain helps you appreciate and savor the joy which is coming.

Take a moment

To think about the risks for your dreams. There will come a point, as Nin states, that it will become unbearable to stay where you are. that point might come long in the future, or you might be nearing the end of your personal rope, but that change is inevitable. Might as well ‘lean into the curve’ instead of waiting. Take on the day!

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.

– Helen Keller

Your world consists of all of the dreams and visions of your past. It is the summation of that courage which you have, and that spark you have within. Keeping yourself in the dark, scared, alone, breaches the very purpose for your existence. Change is ever happening, embraceable, and for the successful: necessary.

Take a moment

To think about what is holding you back from your personal success. What perceptions do you have which can be questioned, and what light do you see on the horizon that you can run toward? Perhaps it is a new job, a new adventure, a new everything… break your personal chains. Take on the day!
