A wise person doesn’t just digest every bit of information he is fed. While listening, he is instinctively examining the source of that information (the person who is sharing it). The way he handles the knowledge–whether to believe, disbelieve, remain neutral or other–depends upon whether the source is a natural gossiper, back-biter, snake, or someone who is honorable and trustworthy. When it comes to information, always examine your source: It makes all the difference in the world.

A real passion or desire to achieve your goals and dreams cannot be chased away by the constant storms of life. If achieving that dream has been embedded into the very fiber of your being, nothing and no one is a powerful enough deterrent. No one, that is – other than you. Something that’s impossible for you to achieve would never have been ingrained in the fiber of your soul. Despite all obstacles, roadblocks and setbacks – your passion, determination and faith can take you directly to your destiny.

Many will admit that they’ve found themselves at the place where they were certain they couldn’t go on for one more day, one more hour, one more minute. The pressures of life, consistent troubles and hardships convinced them that it would be better to stop right there than to try to persist. Then, the next minute came, the next hour, the next day and they found themselves pressing forward. Bottom line: The strength that got you up and moving when you were sure you no longer could, is the same strength that will take you to bigger and better things – to your destiny – if you would be courageous and determined enough to continue the course.
When you’ve reached a milestone in life as a result of hard work and dedication, your sustained sense of joy and accomplishment should never depend upon the “praises” of others. Relying on the affirmation of others concerning the results of your own hard work, may result in total disappointment. Not everyone smiling with you wants the best for you. Believe in yourself and be your biggest fan even if it means, in essence, that you’re your only fan.
If you cannot uplift someone, don’t risk the repercussions attached to trying to bring them down. Malicious behavior always finds its way back to you in one form or the other. If you examine yourself and acknowledge your own short-comings, you would not have the mindset or heart to judge what you deem to be the missteps of another.
No one on earth is promised tomorrow. Live today as stress-free and drama-free as possible. Strive to fill each day with peace and love with all sincerity. When you’ve arrived at the end of the road, you’ll see that nothing else really matters. Hopefully in life you would have given much good, so that in death only good will come to you.
