All of us at one time or another have been afraid to do something risky. It's in our instincts to avoid something that might make things harder for us. The hardest part of starting something new is to take the first step and to follow through with what you say you're going to do. Actions are stronger than words with no action. Once you have taken the first step, the outcome can be very rewarding.
3. “People are capable at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.”
You've probably heard your mom, dad or grandparents say something like, oh I'm too old to do that, but in most cases this statement is just an excuse. In reality no matter how old you are you can start doing something new specially if it's something you love.
4. “When you want something, all the Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
This one might be hard for some people to believe in but if you listen, watch, feel and connect closely you'll be able to see the signs of the universe or maybe it's God that is helping you along. It's also wise to note that some things won't conspire in helping you unless you make personal effort towards your goal as well as doing good deeds. I believe karma has a big role in this.
5. "The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight.”
No matter how many times you fail it's important to keep on trying. Make sure however to learn from your mistakes that way it doesn't take you eight times to succeed. The point of the quote is though that it doesn't matter how many times it takes to succeed as long as you never give up.
6. “Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.”
Too many people in this world worry about what other people are doing with their lives way too much. I find it annoying when I've got someone staring over my shoulder constantly. It's not good for either party to overwhelm the other. You're much more self aware and successful when you mind your own business. Also there are bound to be people in your life that judge you for what you do, as long as you're doing the right thing you shouldn't care what that person thinks of you.
7. "Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.”
Only you yourself can know what your true dream or desire is. So when all else fails you should follow your heart. Trust in what it tells you to do. Don't be afraid what you have inside you.
8. "People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams because they feel that they don’t deserve them, or that they’ll be unable to achieve them.”
Maybe your parents raised you and trained you to be something that they wanted you to be but you didn't feel the same way. You deserve to be happy no matter what your parents want you to be. So follow your dreams at all costs and always believe in yourself because as long as you put your mind to it you can achieve anything.
9. "At a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That's the world's greatest lie.”
A lot of people fall into this trap. It's really not true. What is true is that you control your life. There is no one except for maybe God that has power over you. So if you want to be an author you should write, if you want to be a professional sportsman then practice everyday. It's easier said than done but anything is possible for anyone. Don't get stuck in a rut where you don't enjoy your life. You can control your fate.
10. “Never stop dreaming.”
I've taken this quote to heart. I've completed many goals in my life. I've always wanted to be a teacher, now I am, after achieving my goal I made more. Point is that you should never settle down, you should keep yourself busy and active of course leaving some time for rest.
