"Happiness is the result of my decision to be happy. There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way. In other words, happiness is a feeling I tap into, not an outcome of events. I can be happy without changing anything in my life except my relationship to my own thinking. I decide to be happy and commit myself to making happiness my state of mind, rather than relying on
a set of circumstances to do it for me."
“People love others not for who they are but for how they make them feel”
"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins."
“Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can
be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself - no one else
will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good
and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think
someone else wants you to be different.”
"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful."
“You just have to do your own thing, no matter what anyone says. It's your life.”
"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them."
~George Bernard Shaw
"Above all, to thine own self be true."
