“Biggest Mistake to Make / Doubt Our Potential and Our Possibilities”

If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been.”   (Robert Schuller)



The biggest mistake of the man is that he thinks he doesn’t deserve the good and the bad things from his life.”   (Paulo Coelho)



Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?”   (Sun Tzu)



“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do.  Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors.  Try to be better than yourself.”   (William Faulkner



“When I was little and running on the race track at school, I always stopped and waited for all the other kids so we could run together even though I knew (and everybody else knew) that I could run much faster than all of them!  I pretended to read slowly so I could “wait” for everyone else who couldn’t read as fast as I could!  When my friends were short I pretended that I was short too and if my friend was sad I pretended to be unhappy.  I could go on and on about all the ways I have limited myself, my whole life, by “waiting” for people.  And the only thing that I’ve ever received in return is people thinking that they are faster than me, people thinking that they can make me feel bad about myself just because I let them and people thinking that I have to do whatever they say I should do.  My mother used to teach me ‘Cinderella is a perfect example to be’ but I have learned that Cinderella can go f*** herself, I’m not waiting for anybody, anymore!  I’m going to run as fast as I can, fly as high as I can, I am going to soar and if you want you can come with me!  But I’m not waiting for you anymore.”  (C. JoyBell. C.)



“It is a denial of the divinity within us to doubt our potential and our possibilities.”   (James E. Faust)
