“Don’t regret over the past because it’s over. Don’t worry about the future because it is not here yet.”- Thich Nhat Tu

All you have is now, right now. What are you doing with it? If you are not using it to do positive things, life changing things, you are wasting it. Don’t waste your time. Because it is limited. You are not going to be here forever. So use your time wisely.

“Never quit halfway.”- Thich Nhat Tu

You are not a quitter. You are a winner. When things are not going well for you, don’t quit, just take a break.

“Real peace always comes from within.”- Thich Nhat Tu

“Real peace always comes from within.” That is because everything happens within. The life within controls the life without. Your inside life is more important than your outside life. So if you want to feel great on the outside, you must first pay attention to how you feel within.

“Don’t be a fool to waste your precious time and life.”- Thich Nhat Tu

Remove wastes from your life to be productive. According to Stephen Covey, “first thing first.” All you have is now. All you have is this moment. So if you want your future to be better than what you have now, you must remove wastes from your life. You must remove wastes from your work. Do the important things first. Remove unproductive friends from your life. Do not do what they do. Do what you do. If you want to achieve your dreams, you must do your own thing.

Do You Know That What Is Done In Love Is Done Well?

In the words of Vincent Van Gogh, “Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.”

Love many things, but focus on where you are going. Don’t waste your time. You can do anything. Nothing is impossible for you. Just focus on what you can do. Focus on what you know, not what you don’t know. Because success comes from doing what you know. Failure comes from trying to do what you do not know. It is okay to try things.

Whatever you do, no matter how difficult it may be, don’t give up. Do not give too soon. Many people are not successful because they gave up too soon. Do your work with all you have left in your tank. Do your work with love, with compassion, with empathy, with all your mind, with courage. Don’t settle for less. Do not do what is easy. Do what is hard. You do not grow by doing easy things. You grow by doing hard things.

Hard things strengthen your muscles.

Easy things weaken your muscles.

If you want to grow, if you want to challenge yourself, you must stretch yourself. You must grow yourself. You must not stuck yourself in a rut. Because there is no growth in a rut. Live your life. But not in a rut. You are not here to live in a rut. If you are in one right now, it is time to leave. Leave!
