A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not in the branch but in her own wings. Always believe in yourself.

We can disagree with each other without attacking each other, and we can recognize that someone is attacking our beliefs and opinions without feeding into it. It’s not easy to step back and disengage, but it saves us all a lot of unnecessary drama.

The way we treat our children directly impacts what they believe about themselves.

Believe in yourself and you’ll be unstoppable.

Be alone. Eat alone, take yourself on dates, sleep alone. In the midst of this you will learn about yourself. You will grow, you will figure out what inspires you, you will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you do meet the person who makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you are sure of yourself.

If you truly want to change your life, you first must be willing to change your mind.

A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.

You don’t need to change your negative thoughts. You just need to change how you engage with them. Observe them, choose not to believe them, then let them naturally pass like clouds in the sky. They will pass. They always do.

When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits—anything that kept me small. My judgment called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.

Life’s like a movie, write your own ending. Keep believing, keep pretending.

Forget all the reasons it won’t work and believe the one reason that it will.

We cannot achieve more in life than what we believe in our heart of hearts we deserve to have.

If you believe it will work out, you’ll see opportunities. If you believe it won’t, you will see obstacles.

It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.

Taking responsibility for your beliefs and judgments gives you the power to change them.

Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.

Nurture your mind with great thoughts; to believe in the heroic makes heroes.

When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find ways to do it.

Your belief determines your action and your action determines your results, but first you have to believe.

The outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to reflect their inner beliefs.
