Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
Beauty isn’t about having a pretty face it’s about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart, and a pretty soul.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.
Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations.
Stop trying to change the world since it is only the mirror. Man’s attempt to change the world by force is as fruitless as breaking a mirror in the hope of changing his face. Leave the mirror and change your face. Leave the world alone and change your conceptions of yourself.
You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.
Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.
When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.
If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.
The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.
—N. D. Kalu.
We do make a difference – one way or the other. We are responsible for the impact of our lives. Whatever we do with whatever we have, we leave behind us a legacy for those who follow.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.
Great spirits have always encountered opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.
Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand – and melting like a snowflake.
Color in a picture is like enthusiasm in life.
—Vincent Van Gogh.
Enthusiasm is the divine particle in our composition: with it we are great, generous, and true; without it, we are little, false, and mean.
—Letitia Elizabeth Landon.
There is a real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment.
—Norman Vincent Peale.
Believe deep down in your heart that you’re destined to do great things.
Before you leave the house, you need to make up your mind that you’re going to stay positive and enjoy the day no matter what comes your way. You have to decide ahead of time.
The more you choose to do things that uplift yourself and others the more your Spirit can shine, can heal you, can lead your life. What can you do today to uplift yourself? To uplift others?
Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.
Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.
If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.
If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
Optimism is a happiness magnet. If you stay positive, good things and good people will be drawn to you.
—Mary Lou Retton.
Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles.
Our world is obsessed with success. But how does God define success? Success in God’s eyes is faithfulness to His calling.
Faithfulness and truth are the most sacred excellences and endowments of the human mind.
