The reason why the average person never gets tired from play but always gets tired from work is because he loves the former but does not love the latter. The work is mechanical, the play is not; therefore the one wearies while the other exhilarates. The work, however, would never be mechanical if it were loved, and it is possible to love work just as much as we love play. ~ Christian D. Larson

Embracing change isn’t always easy, facing your fears is even harder especially when the people you anticipate supporting don’t. Here are four basic reminders that though life or people can sometimes be disappointing, you don’t have to give up.
There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.
Fearlessness is like a muscle. I know from my own life that the more I exercise it, the more natural it becomes to not let my fears run me.
Embrace what you don’t know, especially in the beginning, because what you don’t know can become your greatest asset. It ensures that you will absolutely be doing things different from everybody else.
The important thing is not being afraid to take a chance. Remember, the greatest failure is to not try. Once you find something you love to do, be the best at doing it.
Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it. ~Viktor E. Frankl
