Happy MONDAY! TGIM!
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.” ~ Les Brown
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
I heard this quote in a video the other day and I also read it in a book so I thought that it was worth sharing. I was also listening to some podcasts about fear. The podcast talked about how fear was all in your head. Once you actually do the thing you fear, then it becomes less and less scary. So in order to squash your fear you have to do the thing you are most afraid of.
Where is the richest place on earth? Is it in the millions of millions of dollars people make? Is it in the diamond mines of the earth? What are the riches that are inside of you?
What things, what dreams, do you have that you have not shared with the world? Those are the riches people are missing out on. Those are the riches that are inside you that you should not let go of.
If you died today, what dreams , what ideas , what gifts, what talents, what voice, what stories would die with you?
If you have a dream, don’t give up! Don’t settle for life as it is! You can live your dream. You can do that thing. You are unique and you are an amazing creation. Go for what is yours in the universe.
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
~ Steve Jobs
