Let go of the idea of winning or losing. In the game of life, the most important thing is just showing up and doing your best.
Perfectionism is a lost cause. Focus your energy on being the best you can be.
You only have one life. Make sure that yours is one you are happy to be living.
When you make a choice, acknowledge all the consequences. That way you won’t be left feeling compromised.
There is no such thing as ‘no choice’. There are always other options. Explore yours.
Self-pity never leads to happiness. Remind yourself that the situation may not be ideal, but it’s rarely the worst that could ever happen.
Choose to be happy. It’s the only sensible option!
Don’t be attached to outcomes. Enjoy your experiences for what they are, what you have gained and what you have learned.
No matter how much you care about someone, you can’t take responsibility for their happiness.
There is a big difference between being self-ist and being selfish— putting yourself first doesn’t mean you have to put everyone else last.
Don’t take your happiness for granted. Be proactive about maintaining and sustaining it in your life.
Most people are fine with fine and okay with okay. If you want to be the best you can be, make sure you’re not.
When you decide to be the best you can be, don’t be surprised if the circle of people you want to spend your time with becomes smaller.
The only person who can take responsibility for your happiness is you.
If someone tries to undermine your commitment, re-evaluate your commitment to them.
Very few changes in life are achieved without effort and a commitment to making that effort.
Identify your driving motivation and you will have all the encouragement you need.
The most important commitment you will ever make is to being the best you can be.
