What do I want to do with my life?
I want to rock!
Twisted Sister’s “I Wanna Rock,” has always been one of my favorite songs.
I want to live my own life and not the life someone else wants me to live. This song seems to fit into my philosophy.
If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – and never quit, you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards. (Bear Bryant)
With hard work and dedication, anything is possible. (Timothy Weah)
When you see validation for a life’s work and dedication, it’s a beautiful day. (Mary Gauthier)
Humans can be short-sighted. We will do things that give short-term pleasure, even when it has detrimental consequences in the future.
I wonder why we are this way. I wonder if we can ever change. What could humanity accomplish if we were more focused on the consequences of our behavior than on momentary pleasures.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. (Oprah Winfrey)
God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well. (Voltaire)
Don’t just count your years, make your years count. (George Meredith)
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. (Nelson Mandela)
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. (Winston Churchill)
You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor. (Aristotle)
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear. (Mark Twain)
Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same. (Helen Keller)
It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things work. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get. (Confucius)
Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope. (Maya Angelou)
The dictionary defines change as, “to become different in some way, to change is to adjust develop, transform, or revise.”
However, you cannot have change without discipline.
Discipline is defined as, “a system of rules of conduct or method of practice; to be disciplined is to have self-control, self-restraint, and self-mastery.”
Basically, change takes discipline. The two work together.
