Life may always take the exact flight course we anticipate, but if we keep our spirits high and our ambitions alive, we’ll continue to fly in a desirable direction. And sometimes, to keep our peace of mind amidst the turbulence, we just need to be reminded this simple by liberating idea — hence this drawing.
To purchase, copy this code:
Even if the world is grey around you, you don’t have to follow suit. You still have the opportunity to light yourself up. In fact, the quality of your life depends you on doing so… frequently.
Life is full of challenges. If you have big dreams, they will never cease. This is why we must be:
Willing to confront them and act quickly because life’s monsters always become bigger when you try to avoid them. Slay the monsters when they’re small.
Willing to get down to business and let people know you’ll be busy for a little while.
Careful not to take them all too seriously.
Nothing groundbreaking here, I know, just important to remember.
It’s Thanksgiving here in the United States… one of my favorite Holidays. Why? Because it urges us to do what is too often shrouded in the inertia of Western culture: Slow down and reflect. No physical gifts, only gratitude (ironically, one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves, others, and the world).
Repeating behaviors, routines, assumptions, and processes is attractive because, well, it’s easy. But pressing the “repeat” each day is short-sighted. Eventually, our results taper off to a plateau (or decline), we overlook opportunities that can improve our life, and our creative muscles dystrophy.
One of the main reasons people don’t ask is that they are afraid of being rejected. The truth is, when we ask other people for anything, some are going to say yes, and some are going to say no. And a Maverick says, “So what!”
There are many people who live life holding onto things that should really be behind them. Some things are harder to let go of then the handle of your front door, but it’s often those same emotionally intense hang ups that offer the most relief and the greatest thrust forward when finally put behind us.
Fear can serve a valuable purpose, but sometimes it merely holds us back from living the life we really want. In these cases, it’s completely okay to submit your letter of resignation.
Doubt is a very human emotion and can, at times, serve a valuable purpose, but sometimes it merely holds us back from living the life we really want. In these cases, it’s completely okay to submit your letter of resignation.
Guilt is a powerful, but ugly emotion. Sure, it can contribute to decision-making some would equate with discipline, but personally, I believe there are far more productive paths to self-control.
For those who choose to create instead of complain, the age old axiom holds true: Great things can be built upon a foundation of rock.
