A single sentence has the power to transform your life. The message it carries can give you a whole new perspective on things you’ve taken for granted in life and can open up your mind to new experiences. Not only that, but it can also encourage you to look at the big picture so that you figure can out what’s really important to you.
The most interesting part is that everyone can interpret the meaning behind these words differently! Check out these 10 sentences that will definitely challenge your perceptions and change your thinking:
If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.
Confucius was among the first people who stressed the importance of following your passion. Your life alone is a chance you’ve been given to go after your dreams. Only if you do that, will you be able to enjoy your life to the fullest and ensure that you are putting your energy into something that’s valuable and meaningful to you. When that day comes, you’ll know that you never have to work again since you’ll be doing what you love while still getting paid.
Go where you’re celebrated, not where you’re tolerated.
Don’t let anyone take you for granted nor treat you like you are not worth of their time. Be around people who appreciate you for who you are and are able to see your true potential. Likewise, choose to work with people who can see past your weaknesses and celebrate your strengths making you feel part of a bigger team. These people are easy to find; they are the ones who respect your individuality and challenge you to become better.
Everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something, and has lost something.
Jackson Brown reminds you that everyone has been through some difficult times in their lives and so they may experience some things differently than others. This phrase refers to being able to respect their boundaries as well as showing understanding for all the struggles they face. Don’t judge others, so you don’t get judged.
Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.
This is a classic piece of advice and of course one of my all-time favourites. Albert Einstein knew that true success comes only after you experience failure and learn how it feels to be crawling on your knees. If you don’t take risks or go after the things you want, then you just end up being stagnant in life. This supports the idea that mistakes can teach you valuable lessons and can show you the way to success.
People aren’t against you; they are for themselves.
It’s a universal truth that people tend to look out for their own best interests. They’ll most likely give attention to those who they feel they can benefit from and often ignore those who can’t offer them anything they perceive as helpful to fulfilling their own goals. This doesn’t necessarily mean that these people are against you; they are just doing whatever they can to better themselves despite doing it the wrong way. So, if you feel someone has wronged you, don’t take it too personally.
Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world.
Set your goals and work your way up to the top. Go the extra mile and travel if need be so that you can open up your mind and adhere to ‘out of the box’ thinking that will allow you to experience new things. Remember that the most important lessons that you learn in life are the ones that you encounter on the way to success.
Comfort is the enemy of achievement.
Farrah Gray once said that comfort is the enemy of achievement. While taking some time to think about what you want out your life and refine your goals can be beneficial to your overall development sometimes procrastination and putting things off can distract you from doing what you need to do. In order to ensure you are in the right course, allow yourself as much time as you need, but don’t get too comfortable.
If you accept your limitations you go beyond them
Once you’ve come to your breaking point, you realise how much power you have within you. You can use that power to go beyond your own limitations and challenge yourself so that you can better transform yourself into whatever you want to be. In order to do that, you need to be able to face your fears and believe that you can do anything you want; all you got to is give it a shot!
The past has no power over the present moment.
The only way to enjoy life is to keep your eyes focused on the target, following the path that’s unfolded right in front of you. Let go of the past and liberate your mind from negative and unhelpful thoughts that are preventing you from living in the present. Don’t’ get too stressed about what happened and cast away unnecessary worries to allow yourself to move forward.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Eleanor Roosevelt believed that the future belongs to those who dare to dream. This phrase supports the idea that only the dreamers can bring change to this world and inspire others to do the same. So, unleash the power of your mind, embrace creativity and create the future the way you see it.
