" Give out today like you will not see the next second and take in today like you will live for another 100 years to see the consequence of what you took in. What you take in determines your destiny and what you give out determines your legacy!"
Copyright © 2008 Leussa Adrienne
Throughout life, we take in so much in terms of knowledge, thoughts, emotions, food and calories and this actually makes us what we are. If we remember that what we take in today will have a visible consequence on ourselves in the future, we will control how we take in what life throws at us! On the contrary, giving of our time, affection, care, energy and resources will eventually determine who we will be remembered to have been.

" Life is radiant and worthy living if you give the best of yourself in every situation. Imagine, why are we in this multiplicity, in our communities, schools, church etc? It is because we are all different, each possessing a different characteristic from the other. Instead of admiring, adoring and praising other people lets search within ourselves to discover what we can do best, when we can, where we are, with what we have to whom we can. Let us all discover ourselves and the world will be just the most enjoyable place to live in."
Written in 2007 by Simeon Meke --- Malawi
I wrote this to express my heartfelt concern. You see, it pains me to hear most people being so discouraged in life because they are not good at what their friends are best at. This, I regard as the greatest human tragedy. People use their resources trying to discover new places and other things but they fail to take time to unpack the precious gift of their humanity. They do not know what is within themselves that makes them different from Jim or Jack.

" If you don't have a goal or plan of where you want to go in life, you usually don't like where you end up."
Written in 2008 by Elise Quevedo --- United Kingdom
I currently train and speak in different venues and people seem to start quoting some of the things I say... but this quote, above, seems to stick. If it can help anyone else, then that is the most important thing.

" Everything lost can be found, except time wasted."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by L. Smith --- Georgia
I feel it is a good way to look at the way I spend my time. When I think about this, I am more prone to do something rather than just waste my time.

" Envy drains the joy, satisfaction and purpose out of living. If allowed to grow, it breeds hatred and revenge. Revenge converts a little right into a big wrong. Watch out! It's an appetite that's never satisfied."
John Mason --- Submitted by Marina Thasha Ishak --- Malaysia
I've learned to accept that everybody is different and has own talents including myself. Stop comparing.

" People often find themselves racing for money. It's only after they get money that they suddenly realize they need a lot of other things, besides money, to be happy."
Written in 2008 by Pranjal Borbora --- India
This is some thing I have realized myself and think this is the most common misconception for strugglers like me who think that money is everything.

" Success is a journey, an evolution, one that first evolves from within; one that can take you anywhere, if you dare!"

Written for my coach who reminded me the evolution begins from within.

" In the course of a lifetime, what does it matter?"
Author Unknown --- Submitted by J.H. --- Washington
This has really helped me in life. When I get mad at something or disappointed, I think, "What will this matter in a couple years or in a lifetime?" Most of the time I realize that what I'm concerned about doesn't matter, which helps me get over it.

" The most important thing about our acts is not whether we'll be praised or punished, it's about whether we feel good or bad about ourselves by acting the way we do."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Julia --- Namibia
This quote helps me to make decisions from my heart. When the world feels that it is not right for me to do so, I read that quote and realize that no matter how tough the decision might be, I make it. Because at the end of the day, it's not about whether mom or dad or my friends will criticize or praise me, it's all about me. It's all about me feeling good or bad by acting the way I did. Often at times I feel good because I did not listen to anyone and if I make a mistake, I won't have anyone to blame but me because no one gave me advice to act the way I did.

" The grass is always greener until you go to mow it."
Written in 2008 by S. Wallis --- United Kingdom
Enjoy what you have today and don't covet others. It may not be as good as it looks.

" People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have no personal goals which are worthwhile. Get yourself a goal worth working for. Better still, get yourself a project. Always have something ahead of you to "look forward to" - to work for and to hope for."
Maxwell Maltz
