“Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.”

“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”

― H. Jackson Brown Jr.

“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”

-Hunter S. Thompson

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.

Here’s a great quote about the three P’s of success: patience, persistence and perspiration, by the legendary self-help author Napoleon Hill. It’s a fantastic quote that I try to live by.

I’d like to add that in following this philosophy, to never forget the ‘perspiration’ part. This is the part that can sometimes be forgotten. Yes, you’ll have to work for what you want, whatever that may be.

“There is no elevator to success, you’ll have to take the stairs.”

This is some of the best advice I ever followed. Get rid of the anxiety of tomorrow. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed so why worry about it. Yesterday is worth nothing- the past is gone. You have no control over it. It’s okay to reflect on past good times but not okay to live in the past. You have to progress and move on.

So all we really have control over is the present moment. Live in the present moment. Right here, right now. It just makes life simpler and easier to manage.
