Therefore, I am pleased to share with you now some positive thoughts that will help us reflect and that have all the credentials to become the seed that generates change.
1. There can be no happiness if the things we believe in are different from what we do. - F. Stark.
We often hide our dreams and goals in a drawer believing that later we will have time to be happy. However, life is all that happens while you are busy doing other things. Take your time and make sure you are doing what you love and are passionate about, what can truly make you happy. If not, maybe it's time to change course before it's too late.
2. In life, you don't have to search for yourself, you have to create yourself. - GB Shaw
You have probably read on more than one occasion or someone has told you that you need to look for yourself. And, while it is important to look within ourselves and connect with our passions and needs, the fact remains that it is not just a quest, but rather a regeneration. It is not enough to know each other and to know what we are made of, it is necessary to take a further step, we have to change a little every day, because this is the only way we will grow. Therefore, getting to know each other is only the first step, and this is where the majority stop, because they don't have the courage to really change.
3. Embarking on a new journey scares us, but after taking the first steps we realize how dangerous it would be to stay still. - R. Benigni
In life, either we go forward constantly or we are swallowed up by the vortex that brings us back. Since everything is in constant motion, stillness is the most fallacious belief, because when you don't move forward, staying still means going back and being part of the past. However, regardless of what your decision is, always make sure it is yours, because not taking a stand, standing on the side of the road, implies that others decide for us. And this is the most direct path to repentance.
4. We don't see things as they really are until we see things as we really are. - Anais Nin
We see life and the world through our mental filters, understood as our beliefs, stereotypes, thought patterns, expectations and fears that belong to us. However, we persist in thinking that our vision is objective. This mistake generates strong disagreements in interpersonal relationships and the biggest failures are due to the fact that we are trying to adapt the world to ourselves, instead of learning to adapt to the world. Understanding that our vision is biased is the first step to becoming more tolerant and happy people.
5. You will never be too old to set a new goal or have a new dream. - CS Lewis
If you didn't know how old you are, how many things would you propose? What would you change in your life right now? Chronological age is often an obstacle because it involves a series of limitations and expectations imposed by society. However, age is above all a psychological problem, we can add years to the calendar but not get old, the key lies in nurturing positive thoughts, dreams and hopes, in continuing to live constantly in the amazement typical of newborn children. . Remember that the day you stop dreaming, you will start dying.
6. No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. - E. Roosevelt
Our greatest joys come from interpersonal relationships, our greatest pains and resentments too. However, we often don't realize that it is we who empower others to harm us. Only when we give importance to something can it echo in our emotions and cause us humiliation or embarrassment. Remember that a person cannot make you feel inferior if somewhere inside you didn't already feel that way. People, their words and their actions, can only amplify what is already within us.
7. You can only change yourself, but sometimes that changes everything. - Gary W. Goldstein
Fighting windmills may be tempting, but ultimately it is inefficient and unintelligent. In this regard, Buddhist wisdom says that it is better to wear a pair of slippers than to put the carpet on the world. Whether we like it or not, our ability to change society or people is very limited, so it is much more important to know how to adapt. It is not a question of adopting a passive attitude but of changing our attitude, transforming ourselves into more flexible people and broadening our perspective. Sometimes this can change everything because often the problem is not others, but ourselves, even if it is difficult to admit.
8. If you want to make a definitive change, you must stop focusing on the dimension of your problems and start focusing on the dimension of your potential. - T. Harv Eker
Have you ever thought about how much energy and time we have spent thinking about problems, imagining the worst possible scenarios and worrying? However, worrying is like paying in advance (and with interest) a debt that we don't know if it really belongs to us. If we use this energy and time to seek solutions, to generate positive thoughts and identify our potential, we will be able to move much faster and with less effort. This is a very useful change of perspective.
9. Don't let the fear of losing take away the happiness of winning. - Robert Kiyosaki
There is nothing worse than wondering what would have happened if we had dared to take that path that we abandoned out of fear. Sometimes we want to be sure before making a decision and, as a result, we miss the opportunity. However, we will never have absolute certainty, so there will always be a small amount of risk. Brave people, those who dare to change their lives, are not those who are not afraid, but those who value happiness more than fear, who decide to face all adversities with the intention of overcoming them.
10. The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary. - Vidal Sassoon
Every achievement requires effort, people who have been successful have also had to give up many things and have failed many times before achieving their dream. Although often what we see is only the result. Understanding that success is the result of hard work and several failed attempts helps us get into the right order of ideas and allows us to stay motivated even when things go wrong. Thinking that success depends on luck implies that we will never achieve it.
