“It Is Up to Me”
“We must look at the lens through which we see the world, as well as the world we see, and that the lens itself shapes how we interpret the world.” (Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change)
“You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.” (Stephen Covey)
“Just look to those who already possess as you wish to possess or who have already achieved as you wish to achieve and ask yourself whether or not they have some special gift that you don’t have? If they have more angels than you? If they’re any more loved than you are now loved? If they have suffered more, worked harder, or waited longer than you? If I would permit them to be ‘luckier’ or have it easier than you? And you will see, after careful consideration, that their success depended upon none of these things. It arrived simply because they expected it to arrive, and then lived their lives accordingly.
Boom, there it is. (signed) The Universe” (Mike Dooley, Notes from the Universe, August 14, 2014)
“In order to win, you must expect to win.” (Richard Bach)
“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
