“What’s Between You and Your Goal? A BS Story?”


“People are often unreasonable and self-centered.   Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.   Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you.   Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous.   Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.   Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.   Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.

It was never between you and them anyway.”     (Mother Teresa)


“That is why it is so important to let certain things go.   To release them.   To cut loose.   People need to understand that no one is playing with marked cards; sometimes we win and sometimes we lose.   Don’t expect to get anything back, don’t expect recognition for your efforts, don’t expect your genius to be discovered or your love to be understood.   Complete the circle.   Not out of pride, inability or arrogance, but simply because whatever it is no longer fits in your life.   Close the door, change the record, clean the house, get rid of the dust.   Stop being who you were and become who you are.       (Paulo Coelho)


“Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anyone else expects of you.   Never excuse yourself.”       (Henry Ward Beecher)


“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the BS story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.”      (Jordan Belfort)
