Don't compare your life to others.

You have no idea what their journey is all about.

If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.

Most of us miss out on life's big prizes. The Pulitzer. The Nobel. Oscars. Tonys. Emmys.

But we're all eligible for life's small pleasures. A pat on the back. A kiss behind the ear. A four-pound bass. A full moon. An empty parking space. A crackling fire. A great meal. A glorious sunset. Hot soup. Cold beer.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it is the same problem you had last year.

If you use up all your worry today, what will you have tomorrow?

The traditional version tells us that there are two things you need to succeed: talent and hunger, or drive. I have added a third thing, and that is optimism. You can have all the talent in the world, but if you don't believe you can overcome failure, if you do not mentally rehearse success, then your talent and drive will come to nothing once you have been knocked down.
Martin Seligman

Frame every so-called disaster with these words "In five years, will this matter?"

The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reasons for remaining ashore.

Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position fails, your ego goes with it.

Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you.

Don't take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day (much less, their life).

Life's TOO short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so ...

Love the people who treat you right and pray for the ones who don't. And always remember ...

Life is 50% what you make it and 50% how you take it!

Now have a blessed, garbage-free day

Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.

If you take too long in deciding what to do with your life, you'll find you've done it.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

If you don't move your body, your brain thinks you're dead. Movement of the body will not only clear out the "sludge," but will also give you more energy. Treat your body like a car - keep it tuned up and it will run for a very long time.

Sylvia Browne
