“Alter Your Beliefs, Change Your Life”

“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.”          (Anthony Robbins)



“We look at some people as if they were special, gifted, divine.  Nobody is special and gifted and divine.  No more than you are, no more than I am.  The only difference, the very only one, is that they have begun to understand what they really are and have begun to practice it.”         (Richard Bach)    



“You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success.  You don’t have to explain what you plan to do with your life.  You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards.  You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score.  Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history or economics or science or the arts.  You have to pay your own electric bill.  You have to be kind.  You have to give it all you got.  You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth.  But that’s all.”      (Sugar, The Rumpus Advice Column)



“They’re not that different from you, are they?  Same haircuts.  Full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel.  The world is their oyster. They believe they’re destined for great things, just like many of you; their eyes are full of hope, just like you.  Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable?  Because, you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils.  But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you.  Go on, lean in.  Listen, you hear it?  —Carpe  — hear it?  —  Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.”       (John Keating, ‘Dead Man’s Poet’)



“Try a little harder to be a little better.”        (Gordon B. Hinckley)



“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.”          (William James)
