Hi there blog friends, November is here with its rainy weather, lazy Sundays and boring afternoons. For some reason, I completely adore this type of weather, say i’m a ‘cold’ person. Anyhow, today’s entry is about 7 quote i would love to share with you guys, feel free to share, like and discuss.
- “Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.” Nelson Mandela
Learn to forgive, or at least forget. Resentment, grudge and anger only hurts you, so focus your energy on something productive and positive instead of holding on into all these negative vibes.
- “The greatest of faults is to be conscious of none.” Thomas Carlyle
Working on our flaws is ten times easier when we know about them. It’s like getting cold in a dark room with multiple windows and not knowing where the cold is coming from. Once the open window is localised, it becomes a target and the person’s energy can focus on it completely.
- “We will never find time for anything. If you want time, you must make it.” Bruxton
The thing about time is that the less you have to do, the less time you have to do it in. Bad time management and procrastination are the reason behind this, and it is crucial to learn how to manage not only our time, but how we use our time.
- “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” Roald Dahl
Nothing exists when you don’t believe in it. As an eg God exists in the mind and heart of those who believe in him, and he doesn’t in the mind of the others. The believers will see and witness many events that they will qualify as true miracles, signs of the power of the Almighty… while the atheists will see nothing special in these events. It’s about faith and perception, and I think that faith has this special power of creating miracles and changing situations head to toe. Believing in thy self is probably the most important thing a person can do. When you believe you’re a hero, you can actually inherit the special powers you believe you have. When you believe you’re nothing but a failure then odds are that you’ll act and be the failure you think you are. Henry Ford talked about this in the wisest way possible: “If you think you can, or you can’t: you’re right!”.
- “Let go or be dragged!” Zen proverb
Sometimes, some doors just doesn’t lead anywhere anymore, so they must be closed. The person who decides to close these doors isn’t weak, he doesn’t shut them off because of fear, but because he is astute enough to focus his energy on a path that will take him places rather than empty corridors.
- “If you aim at nothing, you are sure to hit it.” Parker
Setting goals is without a doubt one of the crucial differences between a happy person who lives, and a human being who just exists. To do lists, bucket lists, short and long-term goals… everything that will keep the person motivated is worth writing down, even if the benefit of it isn’t clear at first. It’s like two people, one of them dreams of owning a house, works hard and finally builds his dream house while the other one just inherits a big family residence: the difference is clear, the first person is feeling fulfilled, he knows that his work has been rewarded and that he can achieve whatever he sets his mind to: his work paid off. The second person is probably going to thank the providence, the odds, and assume that luck can sometimes be generous, but he has no other feeling of satisfaction about himself.
- “The fear of the unknown hurts more than the unknown itself.”
A good friend of mine told me this few weeks ago regarding a fear I had and I must admit It was almost a mantra, my fear almost faded away (thanks). Us, as creatures, are born with fear. Fear is probably the first feeling-emotion from the get go. The fear of nature, the fear of the wilderness, the fear of animals (the prehistoric Art beautifully showcases this fear-obsession we had with beasts), and afterwards the fear of fire, the fear of death, the fear of the sky, the fear of Gods… Fear has been, is, and will be, the companion of our race, and one of our missions on Earth is to tame and domestic this fear, to make ‘peace’ with it.
