[bluebox] Courage (n)
the ability to do something that frightens one; bravery. [/bluebox]
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. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path. And that will make all the difference.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work…is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking and don’t settle. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
The real challenge of growth mentally, emotionally, spiritually comes when you get knocked down. It takes courage to act.
Fear kills dreams. Fear kills hope. Fear…put people in the hospital. Fear can age you, can hold you back from doing something that you know within yourself that you are capable of doing, but it will paralyze you.
Don’t allow your emotion to control you. We are emotional but we want to begin to discipline your emotion. If you don’t discipline and contain your emotion, they will use you.
Take full responsability for your life! Accept where you are and the responsability that you’re going to take yourself where you want to go.
Live your life with passion!
