To be the best kind of confident is to also be compassionate and to have the ability to accept positive criticism with grace."

Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day. "

The Rules of Love

"The Human race has been asleep, and has dreamed that property and money are the true wealth of a nation, sacrificing men, women and children to the chimerical idea that danced in visionary splendor through their brains. The result of this is to be seen in the uneasiness that prevails everywhere. But humanity is waking up, slowly but surely, and beginning to realize that it, itself, is the most precious thing on Earth."

Love people even when they do not love themselves.

"Today is not just any ordinary day. Today is a day that matters. Today you will have the choice to make a difference in your life and those around you. Today you will have the choice to smile rather than frown, be grateful rather than selfish, lift up rather than put down, accept rather than reject and love rather than hate. Today you will have the choice of seeking hope for the future or remain in the hopelessness of the past. Today you have the choice to laugh or cry. Both will make you feel better. Today you will have the undivided attention of the King of the Universe. At that time you can ask Him anything you want. You can ask for help, plead for a friend or just enjoy His presence. It all depends on you. Whichever you choose, today matters. Make the choice to make it a day worth living. And don't forget, tomorrow is another day."

No negative talk allowed

Submitted by Lauren Covington

"It is very important for everyone to have smiled at a stranger, to have helped somebody they will never see again, to have done something kind and/ or nice for somebody with no strings attached, and to have loved somebody unconditionally. There will always come a time, sooner or later, when each of us will feel that we have nothing left to give to this world, or that that this world has everything and does not need anything more from us. At that time, only if we have done the above, will we be able to believe that this world is still capable of smiling at us, helping us, being kind and nice to us, and above all, is capable of loving us."

It is up to you - be the motivation

"I keep remembering one of my Guru's teachings about happiness. She says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you're fortunate enough. But that's not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it. If you don't you will eat away your innate contentment. It's easy enough to pray when you're in distress but continuing to pray even when your crisis has passed is like a sealing process, helping your soul hold tight to its good attainments."
