“If you changed your assumptions, you would discover new solutions.”
“What day of the week it is, is not so important as what you decide to do with that day.”
“Creativity takes courage.”
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves to.
All sorts if things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in ones favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.”

“Social media can be a great tool if used properly (haha), but the designers and developers of these technologies knew well before hand how very irrational humans are and our proclivity to become addicted to attention, validation and stimulation. These technologies give us constant hits of dopamine. We are being played like fiddles in an orchestra, and we assume that this is normal, only because we all have gradually been conditioned to do so.
As a byproduct of these technologically mediated interactions many adults and a majority of young people only experience the world and life through a tiny glass screen. We are told what to think. What is hot and what is not. Take back your mind, take back your life, take back your imagination and take back all the forces that enable your creative power.”
“We can compete with others but I don’t think that you have to look at life that way. If anything our aim should be to compete with ourselves and to try to do a little bit better everyday than we did the day before.

But on the other hand, when you create, you design the reward that you determine is worth working towards. Not only that but you also create the steps that will get your there.”
“And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.”
“Your diamonds are not in far distant mountains or in yonder seas; they are in your own backyard, if you but dig for them.” “Begin where you are and what you are.”
“A great idea without commitment and execution will leave you discouraged, doubtful and negative. Don’t believe the excuses you tell yourself”
