Don’t wait for tomorrow, don’t wait for next week, don’t wait for next month, don’t wait for next year. If you want to change your life, do it now. You are the captain of your destiny.

NOW

“There is never time in the future in which we will work out our salvation. The challenge is in the moment; the time is always now.” – James Baldwin

People who wear a mask under their nose. Honestly, what is the logic in that? Do you not understand how the human body works? You are wearing a mask to protect yourself and others. Have respect! 

RESPECT

“Wearing a mask under your nose is like putting an objective on your resume. You might think you’re accomplishing something but you’re not.” – Adam Karpiak

Like in American Football, a team fights for the ground they make for every yard of play, you should not focus on the end product in your life. Instead, take small incremental steps to improve yourself in your life and at work, to get rid of the habits that hold you back, and making the right decisions in the moments that matter.

SMALL STEPS

Mistakes happen like it or not. It’s a part of life. It’s what makes us human. What is not right though is people’s inability to say sorry when they’ve messed up. That creates even more anger and frustration for the other person. Be mindful and start saying sorry if you want to build bridges, and let your ego sleep.

SORRY

“Being able to say ‘I am sorry’ makes a difference in your life. It is the key that opens the cage of guilt.” – Nansia Movidi

So many people out there worry about how they come across to others. It often gets so bad that people develop an inferiority complex and then spend the rest of their entire life as a prisoner in their own lives. We resort to putting on acts for others – you know, the ‘fake it till you make it’ type. You need to start prioritizing yourself over others and start to live the life that you are meant to live.

AUTHENTICITY

“All you can do is be yourself, present the most organic version of yourself and allow the rest to play itself out. You are not responsible for what people do or do not understand.” – S. McNutt

Some people spend so much time and energy, trying to be perfect to please others. You probably already know it, but perfection is hard to achieve. Instead, perfection is something we always work towards – it keeps us hungry and fuels our personal growth, and allows us to be our authentic self.

PERFECTION

 “You don’t have to be perfect to inspire others. Let them be inspired by your imperfections and how you deal with them.” – @Inspirewithyas

“Should I or shouldn’t I? We’ve all probably faced this exact dilemma when faced with making a difficult decision. To move forward, we sometimes just need to take a leap of faith.

RISK

“The risk you are afraid of taking could be the one that changes your whole life.” – @Inspirewithyas”
