Sometimes as people we can be so filled with limitations and complacency based on our personal backgrounds that we don't naturally think to "just go for it"! It's easy to forget the power and resources we have before us to freely accomplish anything we can dream of.
A lot of times, (if you're like me) you don't fully realize the resources you have until you're put under pressure to produce. I was reminded this morning on my jog that ALL things are possible, if we only believe, and back it up with the faith to put our plans into action. "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!"... we often hear and anyone can do this, but the things that will inspire our spirits to grow and be better is what's best to generally be aiming for. So I compiled a list of powerful quotes to help us confidently take action:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds from your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ” - Mark Twain
"...Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs
"The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can." -Neil Gaiman
"The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them.” ― George Bernard Shaw
