1. The mind is everything. What you think you become. – Buddha
If there is one person you should be taking advice from, it is the Buddha. After all, Buddha is one of history’s greatest teachers who attained enlightenment. His thoughts on wisdom and suffering have inspired countless generations. This Buddha quote gives us a glimpse into that wisdom. Think good thoughts. Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. If you set your mind to something, you can achieve it!
2. Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
Chase after your dreams fearlessly and never give up on something that you are passionate about. Don't let fear control you instead overcome your fears by making choices which are best for you. Life is about choices. Make choices that will set your soul on fire. Look outside your comfort zone. You have the power to do whatever you want to do in life. The best inspiration to start the week with, isn't it?
3. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. – Christopher Robin to Winnie The Pooh
In the movie Pooh’s Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin, Christopher Robin on realizing that he is growing up and needs to say goodbye to his animal friends tells his best friend Winnie The Pooh that even if they're not always together he should remember that he is braver than he believes, stronger than he seems and smarter than he thinks. Sometimes we all need reminding of the simplest things. There is so much to learn even from children's books.
4. Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion. – Rumi
Rumi was a 13th-century Persian poet, theologian, and Sufi mystic who wrote some of the most beautiful and profound words that were ever written. This Rumi quote reminds you of your capabilities. Let it remind you to never belittle yourself and never act small because you are not small. You have the energy, beauty, and greatness of the universe in you. The only thing holding you back from achieving your dreams is the way you see yourself.
5. Your heart knows the way. Run in that direction. – Rumi
Rumi's words have the power to inspire and empower you. There is so much love and power in his words. Always follow your heart. There is no joy in doing something if your heart isn't in it. Trust the voice inside - it will lead you places you never imagined.
6. If nothing saves us from death, may love at least save us from life. – Pablo Neruda
Death is uncontrollable. Death will come to us no matter how we live our lives. But love has the power to save us not from death but from the drudgery of everyday life. Love makes life worth living. Love touches the deepest parts of your soul. Love saves you.
7. What you seek is seeking you. – Rumi
Why do you seek the things you do? The Universe connects everything even the seeker and what is being sought. If you search for something with all your heart and soul, the universe serves it to you on a platter. In that sense, what you seek is seeking you.
8. It always seems impossible until it's done. – Nelson Mandela
When Nelson Mandela decided to fight against apartheid in South Africa, it may have seemed like an impossible task but that did not deter him from pursuing this fight. What may seem impossible today will only be possible if you take the first step.
9. Believe you can and you're halfway there. – Theodore Roosevelt
Believe in the power of your own mind. Once you realize that you're capable of greatness and believe that you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it, half the work is done! Believing you can achieve something is the first and the biggest step you need to take on the road to achievement.
10. The only journey is the one within. – Rainer Maria Rilke
The journey of your soul, of finding out who you truly are, is the most important one. Every outward journey you take in life must help in your evolution as a human being. The only journey that matters is the journey of self-discovery.
11. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
Bad decisions or choices aren't all bad. They're lessons and experiences that help you make better choices in the future. As John Mayer says, we win some, we learn some. Good judgement comes from having made a few bad judgements.
12. Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible.
This inspirational quote has been attributed to some very famous personalities - Albert Einstein, graphic artist M.C. Escher and feminist Robin Morgan. What hasn't been attempted before always seems impossible and absurd. If any of these famous men and women had listened to people around them calling their ideas or goals absurd, they wouldn't have achieved what they have achieved today. So unless you attempt the absurd, you cannot achieve the impossible!
13. Be the girl who decided to go for it.
This inspirational quote is for all the women out there. Be the girl who decided to follow her dreams, who decided to live fearlessly, who decided to go after whatever she loved. Be the girl who decided to go for it, whatever that may be!
