It isn’t what happens to us that causes us to suffer; it’s what we say to ourselves about what happens.

We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.

Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.

Problems are the price of progress.

Life will bring you pain all by itself. Your responsibility is to create joy.

Impossibilities are merely things which we have not yet learned.

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

Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.

Never to suffer would never to have been blessed.

To have striven, to have made the effort, to have been true to certain ideals–this alone is worth the struggle.

There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept responsibility for changing them.

You can’t be envious and happy at the same time.

Don’t let your mind bully your body into believing it must carry the burden of its worries.

To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.

Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out.

I vow to let go of all worries and anxiety in order to be light and free.

Freedom is instantaneous the moment we accept things as they are.
