You don’t need to travel the world or do big things to live an extraordinary life. Be present. Notice the beauty around you. Be curious. Try the things that interest you. Be brave. Start the things you’ve been putting off. Create something. Learn something. Teach something. And do it all for the love of it.

Life is what happens while we’re busy worrying about everything we need to change or accomplish. Slow down, get mindful, and try to enjoy the moment. This moment is your life.

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.

Don’t give up just because things get hard. Give up if you feel in your gut that moving on is the right choice for you.

Every now and then it’s good to stop climbing and appreciate the view from right where you are.

The goal is to die with memories, not dreams.

Don’t be afraid to get back up again—to try again, to love again, to live again, and to dream again. Don’t let a hard lesson harden your heart.

You are not too old and it is not too late.

Live simply. Dream big. Be grateful. Give love. Laugh lots.

No amount of security is worth the suffering of a life chained to a routine that has killed your dreams.

Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it.

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

Life’s not about expecting, hoping and wishing, it’s about doing, being and becoming.

Don’t sit back and wait for life to happen to you. Dream, plan, execute!

Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us.

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

This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays!

Instead of wondering when our next vacation is, we should set up a life we don’t need to escape from.

A year from now you may wish you had started today.

Miracles start to happen when you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears.
