Making A Life Plan

"Making a life plan is stimulating and motivating, and it contributes to success in all areas of life.  Keep in mind, however, the need to remain flexible regarding the future, since life involves constant adaptation.  What you are doing in five or ten years may not necessarily be what you expect - it might be much better than you ever dreamed possible."

We Are All Inter Connected

"To really bear fruit in life we cannot act alone; you only have to look at how nature works in our gardens to realise the truth of this.  Bees collect and transfer pollen; birds recycle vegetation; the wind enables seeds to be pollinated; worms cultivate soil; and fallen apples provide energy for families of insects.  While our gardens may be walled or fenced off, we are all interconnected in some way."

Confronting Fear and Keep Going On

"People who make successful changes (even if it takes them many attempts) have done their mental maths.  They have identified the cost of not making the change and compared it to the cost benefit of making the change. Not making the change is costing them dearer.  Courage isn't about the absence of fear - it is about confronting it and going on regardless."

-- Elaine Harrison

"The only safe thing is to take a chance."

-- Mike Nichols

"The resting place of the mind is the heart. The only thing the mind hears all day is clanging bells and noise and argument, and all it wants is quietude. The only place the mind will ever find peace is inside the silence of the heart. That's where you need to go."

-- Elizabeth Gilbert

You Need Practise and Training

Don't Quit When Things Go Wrong

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint on the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar.
So, stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things go wrong that you mustn't quit.

Your Dreams Take Time To Mature

For me, luck is the result of: hard work, belief and most importantly, persistence."
