Here are some of my favorite quotes of the day, enjoy.
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Ok, I had to get this profound early on in this post. It is so important to really enjoy every single moment we have, we never get them back. And learning is one of my favorite things to do. Expanding our knowledge can lead to a very fulfilling life. And sharing that knowledge.
“The best way to cheer yourself up is to cheer somebody else up.” – Mark Twain
I love this one! How many times have you felt so down on your luck, things cannot get any worse, and then someone comes into your life, and you happen to be the perfect person to tell them what they need to hear. That is one of life’s most rewarding moments.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Defeat is a state of mind; no one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.” – Bruce Lee
There are many, many, many successful people who have faced adversity and defeat over and over again. One that comes to mind is Tyler Perry. He wrote and produced a play, which failed repeatedly for six years. Through perseverance he never gave up. He was never defeated. And now he is extremely successful. Here is a nice short video on how he never gave up.
