‘You’re never as young as you are today’
Scare yourself into action, and yes, we’re starting the list strong here, but sometimes that’s what it takes…
And so yes, time is running out, but it’s never too late to create opportunity for yourself. Make the most out of the time you have left on this planet. Be brave, seize the day.
‘Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay’ – Simone de Beauvoir

‘Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.’ – Carol Burnett

‘It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.’ – Confucius

‘The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.’
You can still become the person you want to be, even though you’ve made mistakes in the past. Do your best not to wallow in the past.

Make up for it if you can, move over it because you have to, and never forget it because it defines you.
‘Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough’ – Og Mandino

‘It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.’ – Aristotle
And we know you think about the past, and we know you’ve made mistakes, but it’s in those moments we must focus. We all think about the ‘big bad’ from time to time, we all get caught up in negativity, hit ruts and then struggle to get out of them. But these moments give us the most opportunity for growth. And learn from them, and how you moved past them, least you get stuck there again…
‘Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it’ – Charles R. Swindoll
I love thinking that 90% of your world is your reaction to the 10% of things that happen to you. It values personal perspective so highly, and I would agree. Most of your world goes on inside your head. So make the most of that thought. Skew it positively, and then most of your life is skewed positively. Oh, and also don’t hit people. That’s awful. Just think about things positively, that’s what this quote means, right? Well, it wants you to think about your ability to influence your world, your reaction.
‘Change is your friend not your foe; change is a brilliant opportunity to grow.’ – Simon T. Bailey
Take Swindoll’s ‘10%’ of life that actually happens to you, and make the most of it. Take and create opportunity for yourself. When you find yourself doing new things, embrace them. Try to see the positive side of big changes in your life. Relish doing things differently and enjoy abnormal days, you’ll find yourself more engaged and that it’s easier to learn from these opportunities.
‘Change your thoughts and you change your world.’ – Norman Vincent Peale
If you change your perception of things, actually do change your world, back to influencing that 90% of your life. Yes, it’s harder than it sounds, but try thinking of things more positively and you’ll be creating a more positive world for yourself, and certainly a more enjoyable one.
‘Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.’ – Helen Keller
So keep thinking happy thoughts, it’s all going to be ok. Seriously. It kinda’ has to be, so stay positive that it’s going to. Optimism is faith that it’s going to work out, only from there can you begin to achieve. And feel confident that it is going to get you there, because if you’re uncertain then it likely won’t.
