Our greatest fear is not that we are not special enough; our greatest fear is that we are too special. It is our brilliance, not our deficiencies that often frighten us most.
Don’t sell yourself short. There is nothing helpful about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
Sometimes life gets so hard that you don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. But sometimes life is beautiful.
Realize that fear is the worst of it; fear is your real enemy. So get up, get out in the stormy weather of the real world, and kick fear as hard as you can.
You can’t control everything in your life no matter how many safeguards you put into place.
Life is about finding a balance between what we can and cannot control. You must learn to live comfortably between effort and surrender. Realize you haven’t lost anything; you were never in control, to begin with.
As you grow older, what you look like on the outside becomes less and less of an issue, and who you are on the inside becomes the focal point of interest.
So no matter how plain and undesirable you may feel right now if your truth is written across your face, you are beautiful.
Those of us who can’t handle the tension of not understanding often judge and lash out at others. We defend our circumstances by condemning people in different circumstances.
So much depends on simply learning that feeling uncertain is not a sign that anything’s wrong with you or anyone else – it’s just a sign that we’re all human. Nobody has it all figured out.
Change is often resisted when it’s needed the most.
Most of us are comfortable where we are even though the whole universe is constantly changing around us. Learning to accept this is vital to our happiness and general success in life. Because only when we change, do we grow, and begin to see a world we never knew was possible.
