47.We must change the way we think about things in
order for them to be better. If our thought process
changes, so will our lives.


It’s just like the old saying, we are what we think we
are. We can’t expect to be good if we don’t think we


We can’t expect to succeed in life if secretly, deep
down inside, we truly believe we can’t. When our
beliefs about ourselves change, so do our outcomes.
It is more difficult to figure out where we are going
in life than it is to figure out someone else. It is the
most rewarding task because of how great the
challenge is.


The path to discovering ourselves will be the hardest
path we have to pave, but it will also lead us to be
the best we can be.


The people who stay put in life are the people who
believed that was where they would end up.
If you dream big, big things happen, no matter how
crazy people tell you that you are. We can become
anything, as long as we think it.


If the work you are doing doesn’t make you want to
wake up every morning, then it’s time to find new
work. There are only so many days in our lives to do
what we love to do.


Some people have fear that gets in the way of their
dreams. They have a bucket list of things that have
never been completed because they fear what
others may think.


When you clear the fear from your mind, life will be
more open to you.


There is no way to go further in life if you are
unwilling to give it your all. You must pave your own
path to know the path that is best. You cannot follow
someone else’s path because you have not created it.


Some hide in fear of what others may think of them
because of what society tells them.


Those who are
not afraid of themselves are not afraid of anything.
Express your feelings, follow what moves you and
never be afraid to be you.


Those who live in jealousy and hate will eventually
fall to it. If you let go of the past, there is less to
worry about.


Don’t be upset with things you cannot control. For
those things that you can control take the time to
acknowledge your anger and move on from it.


If you live every day to the fullest, you will not be
afraid to die tomorrow.
If this isn’t the way you feel every day when you wake
up, you must make a change to your life.


Those who are not afraid to die are those who have learned to

man speak or act with a good thought, happiness follows him
like a shadow that never leaves him.”
― Gautama Buddha

Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and
rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it
is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in
anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed
down for many generations. But after observation and analysis,
when you find that anything agrees with reason and is
conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it
and live up to it.”
― Gautama Buddha


“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot at

didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us
all be thankful.”
― Gautama Buddha

whole heart and soul to it”

if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called

“Now, Kalamas, don’t go by reports, by legends, by traditions,
by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies,
by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by
the thought, ‘This contemplative is our teacher.’ When you
know for yourselves that, ‘These qualities are skillful; these
qualities are blameless; these qualities are praised by the wise;
these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to welfare & to
happiness’ — then you should enter & remain in them.
[Kalama Sutta, AN 3.65]”
― Gautama Buddha


“It is like a lighted torch whose flame can be distributed to ever
so many other torches which people may bring along; and
therewith they will cook food and dispel darkness, while the
original torch itself remains burning ever the same. It is even so
with the bliss of the Way.
[Sutra of 42 Sections]”

“An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild
beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will
wound your mind.”

pondering, that becomes the inclination of his awareness.”
― Gautama Buddha


“Greater in battle
than the man who would conquer
a thousand-thousand men,

living in constant self-control,
neither a deva nor gandhabba,
nor a Mara banded with Brahmas,
could turn that triumph
back into defeat.”
― Gautama Buddha


“Pain is certain, suffering is optional.”
― Gautama Buddha


“These… things, householder, are welcome, agreeable, pleasant,
& hard to obtain in the world:
Long life is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in
the world.
Beauty is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the
Happiness is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in
the world.
Status is welcome, agreeable, pleasant, & hard to obtain in the


…Now, I tell you, these… things are not to be obtained by reason
of prayers or wishes. If they were to be obtained by reason of
prayers or wishes, who here would lack them? It’s not fitting for
the disciple of the noble ones who desires long life to pray for it
or to delight in doing so. Instead, the disciple of the noble ones
who desires long life should follow the path of practice leading
to long life. In so doing, he will attain long life… — Gautama Buddha
