~ Dare To Dream ~

~ Dare To Dream ~

~ Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream. ~

~ You are the master of your happiness ~

~ You are the master of your happiness ~

“You must constantly ask yourself these questions: Who am I around? What are they doing to me? What have they got me reading? What have they got me saying? Where do they have me going? What do they have me thinking? And most important, what do they have me becoming? Then ask yourself the big question: Is that okay?”

~ Do It Now ~

~ Do It Now ~

~ One day you will wake up and there won’t be anymore time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now ! Buy that thing you always wanted to. Go visit the places you wanted to see. Missing someone, call them. Hurt someone, apologies. Want something, ask for it. Smile, love, hurt, try, inspire, enjoy. Do all the things you want to do. Do it now ! ~

It’s better to look back and say, “I can’t believe i did that.” Than to say, “I wish i did that.” Life is too short to regret. Do it now ! 🙂

Don’t Judge, Before You Know

A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…

“Dad, look the trees are going behind!” dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed … “dad, look the clouds are running with us !” the couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man… “why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?” the old man
smiled and said … “i did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today…”

Every single person on the planet has story.
“don’t judge people before you truly know them. the truth might surprise you…think before you say something…!!!
