Be Your Own Paradise

One thing that you can accomplish for yourselves is to be friends with yourself, give yourself love as you provide for different companions and make yourself your number 1 priority because you can’t adore individuals and make them to accept that you love them except if you do not love yourself. People are temporary, you with you is permanent. Just be your own paradise!

The Pain of Change and Growth

Like growth, change in general can be hard and painful. Though oftentimes it only looks as such on the surface. Being part of the unknown, people tend to be afraid of change. So they fight it, resist it, and try to control it. This resistance is what usually causes suffering; for it creates sorrow and disappointments. Change, however, only becomes hard and painful when resisted. To flow through life one must dive into it head first.

You Can Always Push A Little Further

As you persevere and find success, the sweet voice of praise from your own mind and those around you will whisper, “You are amazing. You did it.” Acknowledge that voice, but don’t allow it to seduce you. Instead of dwelling on my successes, I see clearly the areas where I’m still growing and improving. However good you think you are, you can always be better. This is the nature of ceaseless self-improvement—you can always dig a little deeper, work a little harder, and push a little further than before. There is always more.

Success Is Not In Your Genes

Focus on whether you are fulfilling your own potential than comparing yourself to someone else. The fact that you have a natural limit to any specific ability has nothing to do with whether you are reaching the ceiling of your capabilities. People get so caught up in the fact that they have limits that they rarely exert the effort required to get close to them.

Genes can not make you successful if you’re not doing the work. Until you work as hard as those you admire, don’t explain away their success as luck.

Living In Hope

The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.

The Power of Imagination, Hope, Laughter and Love

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.

We Are, Our Choices

Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.
~Roy T. Bennett

Building A Future In The Present

As the future is built in the present, and this future is always being shaped and transformed by the present, any imagined or foreseen future is nothing but tomorrow’s present. In this sense, it is more important how you observe your world today than what you will do tomorrow. The best decisions are always those which escape the imagination, do not correspond to the plans of the mind, but make perfect sense in a spiritual and emotional context.

An Increase Sense of Spiritual Self

A personality is dynamic. You will have many pulls and pushes, and impulses, driving you towards different elements in your life and forcing you to make choices during your existence on Earth. Some choices will be more related to your need to belong, others with your need for financial security and some others related to sexual impulses. But only the spiritual impulse can make you successful and happy. How to recognize it? Well, that is, quite simply, the impulse to make connections that last, changes that change you in return and as much as you should change in the right direction, and above all, it is found in the inner impulse towards the recognition of love. The consequences of refusing this spiritual dynamic are found in disappointment, loneliness, despair and a whole wasted lifetime that can’t be recovered and opportunities that will never be seen again. As you grow older, and your timing on Earth gets shorter, only an increased sense of spiritual self can help you recover whatsoever seemed lost in a miraculous way.

Success Must Be Ensued

Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it.
