“If someone is not treating you in a way that you like, remember that there are so many nice people out there. The problem is that when you love someone, you make excuses for that kind of behavior.”
“Negative thinking is subtle and deceptive. It wears many faces and hides behind the mask of excuses. It is important to strip away the mask and discover the real, root emotion.”
Robert H. Schuller
"You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus."
“If you really want to do it, you do it. There are no excuses.”
How is your imagine? Is it in focus or do you need help getting it back in focus? Do you believe that people with disabilities can do whatever they want to do or do you think they can only imagine doing fun things?
“The real man is one who always finds excuses for others, but never excuses himself.”
Henry Ward Beecher
“It doesn’t matter if you come from the inner city. People who fail in life are people who find lots of excuses. It’s never too late for a person to recognize that they have potential in themselves.”
“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours — it is an amazing journey — and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”
“Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.”
“For what it’s worth … it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
“Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.”
John F. Kennedy
“Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.”
“Live a Life of Bold and Courageous Action Inspired by Powerful Dreams.”
Jonathan Lockwood Huie
"If you have a dream, don’t just sit there. Gather courage to believe that you can succeed and leave no stone unturned to make it a reality.
“You become courageous by doing courageous acts…Courage is a habit.”
The shooting in Las Vegas teaches us that we cannot wait for the right time to start working toward our dreams because we are not guaranteed tomorrow.
“Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.”
“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition – they somehow already know what you truly want to become.”
"Curiosity, rationalization, and laziness are no match against courage, self-control, and mental toughness."
~ John Bytheway
I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much lately, but with everything that has been happening I feel that it is important for me to start again.
Our theme this week is Courage and the quote below is what inspired me.
“Take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.”
–Mary Tyler Moore
