“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”

― Steve Maraboli



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 a fantastic quote by the legendary artist Salvador Dali. I think he is referring to the “rawness” and immediacy of drawing. There are no paint brushes to use tricks and techniques with. No spectrum of colors to splash around on the canvas. It’s just an artist, a pencil and a piece of paper.

I like to see an artist draw because this is how I can see their talent in raw form. This is how I can see how technically skilled they are with their hands. I liken it to taking a singer and putting them in front of a microphone with no effects, no reverb, no auto-tune.  You can hear if a singer is really talented if they can wow you with nothing but their voice and microphone.

Dali was right, a drawing is either good or bad. With drawing you’re not going to get away with splashing some color on a canvas and calling it “abstract.” You have to have some “chops.” The honesty of art.

This is why I love drawing. You get the whole truth and nothing but the truth.




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.
