“If you want to be respected by others the great thing is to respect yourself. Only by that, only by self-respect will you compel others to respect you.”- Fyodor Dostoevsky
“Above all things, one should maintain his self-respect, and there is but one way to do that, and that is to live in accordance with the highest ideal.”- Robert G. Ingersoll
“People need self-respect, but self-respect must be earned– it cannot be self-respect if it’s not earned -and the only way to earn anything is to achieve it in the face of the possibility of failing.”- Charles Murray
“…the only way to earn anything is to achieve it in the face of the possibility of failing.”-
Life is about acceptance. It is about movement. Life is not about wasting your time. It is about using the time that you have to do great things, to fail, to love, to find who you really are.
You can’t live your full life if you are not willing to fail. Because life is about failure. You can’t succeed if you do not want to fail.
“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change.”- Paulo Coelho
Life is about love. As the saying goes, “Love is life. Life is love.” Do not hate your life. All you need to do is to find a way to make it better. Whatever life offers you, take it and make it better.
“You can look backward, but do not stay backward.”
Life is about expecting the best things for yourself. You get what you expect. No matter what is in front of you right now, always expect the best for yourself.
Life is about change. Change is about movement. If you want to change your life, do not resist change, embrace change.
Change is about looking forward. According to Paulo Coelho, “Life does not look backward.” If you want to make your life better, you must make change your friend. Because change is not about looking backward. It is about looking forward. You can do it.
