“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” -Eleanor Roosevelt
Words only hurt you if you let them. You have the power to control how you react to any given situation around you. Think before you react and ask yourself if it’s worth it to get upset or angry over whatever it is.
“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.” -Vince Lombardi
No one is perfect, and no one will ever be perfect, that’s just how it is. There are no set standards for what a normal person should look like, act like, or talk like. If you strive for perfection, odds are that’ll you’ll end up doing or being something really amazing.
"I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination." —Jimmy Dean
Even when life takes you in a direction you don’t expect, you can always find a different path to take. There’s no one path to success, it’s a winding road with twists and turns that’ll take you places you never thought go.
"When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it." —Henry Ford
No matter how bad your days get, be thankful that you can still see the sun when you wake up in the morning. Try and live life thinking of things as “I get to” not that “I have to.” If you say that to yourself whenever you have a negative outlook on something, it can have the power to change your mindset.
"Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck." —Dalai Lama
Everything happens for a reason, even if it’s not apparent to us right now or five years into the future. Sometimes the things we want aren’t the things we truly need. A lot of times we realize that it works out for the better and we’re happy things played out the way they did.
