Success is best defined by longevity. It’s not winning a certain job or earning a certain dollar amount. It’s the culmination of a life well lived; a life that when taken as a whole, leads to a prosperous ending.
“Books are my pass to personal freedom. — Oprah Winfrey.”
Simplicity isn’t easy.
What does it mean to live a good life? “To love and forgive unconditionally.”
All that will be left of us is how we made others feel. That is our legacy. And we are creating it now.
It’s easy to confuse beauty for happiness. What do we say when something is particularly awe-inspiring, or meaningful? We say it’s beautiful.
Your mind is an over-worked auto-suggestion machine.
It is small, even undetectable, habits that accumulate and create the quality and legacy of our lives.
“Don’t give up. Obstacles and problems are just unsolved lessons in your life. You’re whole and healing. You are enough.”
Inner peace is not the insistence that you can’t tolerate “negative” people, places or situations, it is having the ability to cope with them.
It was only when I realised that wanting it more than I’d ever wanted anything wasn’t enough, and hadn’t been enough, and would never be enough… it was only then that I started to take action.
Let your creative addictions and obsessions heal you.
You are meant to make mistakes, but you are also meant to learn from them.
You have to make sure you’re more in love with your life than you are with your problems.
Small things become big things, always.
