Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

Sometimes the most valuable lessons come from people who didn’t intend to give them.

I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.

I owe no explanations for my flaws. I don’t have to justify my mistakes, my past or my insecurities. I am growing and learning. 

Worry less, smile more. Don’t regret, just learn and grow.

View your life with kindsight. Stop beating yourself up about things from your past. Instead of slapping your forehead and asking, ‘What was I thinking,’ breathe and ask yourself the kinder question, ‘What was I learning?’

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

Stop beating yourself up.  You are a work in progress; which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.

Fear, uncertainty, and discomfort are your compasses toward growth.

When something bad happens you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.

Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Change is inevitable. Growth is intentional.

We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.

We find comfort among those who agree with us—growth among those who don’t.

Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.

Praise is like sunlight to the human spirit: we cannot flower and grow without it.

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.

Grow where you are planted.

You can only grow if you’re willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.
