Save what inspires you
The right frame of mind, and thinking about positive things to happen goes a long way to improving your life. Focus on what you want.
You can't just think good thoughts and assume your life will be better.
We can't just think something. We need to act on it.
Be an originator of the action, of new ideas and be the first to start something new.
Set an example. No matter what it is, be the first one who does something.
Instead of taking the common path, make your own path. Don't be a follower. When you originate something, be unique in your actions.
Be the one who doesn't hide, doesn't fear all the things that life has to offer: bad people, bad weather, pressure, or pain.
Taste life to the fullest.
Quit the things that are not working out for you. It is no use hanging on to something which is not of use.
Fail fast and come out stronger with a better solution to succeed.
Don't be ashamed to rest. You need to recover your energy, and for that, you need to schedule rest as an important activity.
You will find pessimists everywhere, even in well-meaning family and friends. They don't know any better. Ignore them selectively. A pessimist is not necessarily a bad person.
We're forgetful beings. So you need to keep reminding yourself what you already have in life, what you want and what your life goal is, and to stay on track.

It's up to you to define what a good habit is. This critical to forming new habits.
To find your why, your reason to change, just ask yourself this: “Will habit x improve the quality of my life?” Answer that. And then, adopt habits that bring you closer to the things you want in life.
We overestimate ourselves most of the time. And that's one of the reasons we try to do so many things at the same time, in a short period.
We can achieve a lot over a long period. So focus on one thing at a time. Stack one habit on top of the other, one by one.

Understand that life is not about impressing others with what you know. It’s about fulfillment, collaboration, and the common good.
If you want to achieve those thing...
As a child, you’re taken care of by others. Hence, you assume that someone is responsible for you.
When you grow up, you are responsible for you. So never look at others when you’re unhappy. Instead, accept your unhappiness, and then do something about it.
There’s a big chance the people in your environment don’t strive for the same things as you. Many people live a timid life. People who don’t want anything from life and who spend their time watching tv.
Don’t give your time to those people. You might become one of them.
