Take an optimistic attitude, courage to face today’s challenges, and a healthy mind and body to the day and you’ll come out ahead. ~ Ray Calabrese
Do not think of your faults, still less of others’ faults; in every person who comes near you, look for what is good and strong; honor that; rejoice in it; and as you can, try to imitate it; and your faults will drop off like dead leaves when their time comes.
The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.
When have you changed a long held attitude and recognized the impact on your life? What was the attitude you changed? How did it influence your life?
Talent is a wonderful thing, but it won’t carry a quitter.
The man who frets at worldly strife Grows sallow, sour, and thin;
Give us the lad whose happy life Is one perpetual grin:
He, Midas-like, turns all to gold— He smiles when others sigh, Enjoys alike the hot and cold,
And laughs though wet or dry.
There’s fun in everything we meet,— The greatest, worst, and best;
Existence is a merry treat, And every speech a jest:
So, come what may, the man’s in luck Who turns it all to glee,
And laughing, cries, with honest Puck, “Good Lord! what fools ye be.”
Joseph Rodman Drake.
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
