A new beginning is always fun.
What separates successful ones from the rest is not only their ability to dream.
It is all about following through. I always tell people not to assume that you are special by just being you but you CAN BE special by following through till the end with your sweat and tears.
Most people let go of their excitement and promises as soon as something hard arises.
I picked up the following 6 quotes from high achievers and leaders that explain resilience in different ways that give us perspectives
# Get the fuck up and move.
Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again. ― Nelson Mandela
#Keep Going. No matter what. Don't blame anyone. Don't worry. Pick up your shit and let's go.
Forget mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you are going to do right now, and do it. Today is your lucky day. – Will Durant
#Your life is a journey. It is not about what you have. It is who you become. It is about appreciating and finding joy in experiences that riches your life.
Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.” – Osho
It is really wonderful how much resilience there is in human nature. Let any obstructing cause, no matter what, be removed in any way, even by death, and we fly back to first principles of hope and enjoyment. – Bram Stoker
