“You Need to Change Yourself”


“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve:   the fear of failure.”     (Paulo Coehlo)


“Life is one big road with lots of signs.   So when you are riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind.   Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy.   Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality.   Wake Up and Live!”    (Bob Marley)


“To wallow is to bitterly complain “they are doing it to us again.”   To follow is to passively wait for “somebody to do something.”   To lead is to move forward with the conviction that “I am going to do something about this.”  If it is to be, it’s up to me.   Leading means taking initiative.   Leading is going and showing the way.  Leading uses persuasion rather than position of power.   Like the best navigators in the days of sailing ships, leading means figuring out how to capitalize on – or overcome – the conditions nature or life throws at us.”       (Jim Clemmer)


“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves …  Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given to you because you will not be able to live them.   And the point is, to live everything.   Live the questions now.   Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”        (Mainer Maria Rilke) 


“You don’t need to change the world; you need to change yourself.”      (Miguel Ruiz)
