“I can’t give you a surefire formula for success but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.”
– Herbert Bayard SwopeThis quote always rings true to my heart. Whenever I feel down or held back I take a look at what I am doing with my life. Am I living accordingly to others standards or expectations? Do I make choices based on information given by friends or family? Am I living my life the way I want to live it? If I am feeling down or held back the answer to all of these questions usually unravels itself out to yes. If we can try to understand this concept each day when we wake up our lives will be filled with happiness and joy. I know I feel much more open and free when I am living by my own expectations and standards. We will ultimately please others by making sure we are stable and content with who we are and what we’re doing, no matter what it is. Don’t worry about making others happy at the expense of your own happiness. Find what you want to do and commit to it 100% and I assure you, success will begin to show itself more and more. Peace, love, and happiness!
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this.”
– Henry David Thoreau
