“At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done, then they begin to hope it can be done, then they see it can be done – then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries before.” (Frances Hodgson Burnett)
“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.” (Deepak Chopra)
“Buddha left a road map, Jesus left a road map, Krishna left a road map, Rand McNally left a road map, but you still have to travel the road yourself.” (Stephen Levine)
Whatever you choose to do today, be great at it. Be great in your own, personally meaningful, worthwhile, fulfilling way.
Being great doesn’t necessarily mean being impressive, or being obsessive, or being anything other than how you sincerely wish to be. Being great means being great at being you.
After all, there’s only one of you and that confers upon you an important responsibility. You’re the only person who can truly express the unique perspective that you’re so fortunate to experience. Look past the aches and pains, the dilemmas of the moment, the superficial frustrations and disappointments. Remind yourself how good and right it feels to be, and more specifically, to be you.
Don’t waste your time borrowing or begging the tired old desires that you wouldn’t really even want anyway. Feel the pure energy of your beautiful, unique purpose, and see all the great ways you can live that purpose right now.
Fill your life with richness on this very day by giving your time, commitment and focus to what really, truly matters. Bring your life to life, and be great at being you. (The Daily Motivator)
