Now, every time I witness a strong person I want to know: What darkness did you conquer in your story? Mountains do not rise without earthquakes.

Some of the kindest souls I know have lived in a world that was not so kind to them. Some of the best human beings I know have been through so much at the hands of others, and they still love deeply, they still care. Sometimes, it’s the people who have been hurt the most who refuse to be hardened in this world, because they would never want to make another person feel the same way they have felt. If that isn’t something to be in awe of, I don’t know what is.

Maybe your life purpose isn’t supposed to be a thrill-seeking narrative. What if you’re meant to be the sunshine to someone’s stormy day? Or the voice of clarity to a frantic mind? You don’t have to be a superhero to save the world.

You ARE good enough. (Actually, you’re probably overqualified. But let’s start the week off humble.)

The person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero.

Anyone can find the dirt in someone. Be the one who finds the gold.

When you look for the good in others, you discover the good in yourself.

You are more than what you do, produce, or achieve. Don’t believe for a second that your output and your income dictate your worth. They don’t.

If you really want to live your life to the fullest and realize your greatest potential, you must be willing to run the risk of making some people mad. People may not like what you do, people may not like how you do it, but these people are not living your life. You are!

A great attitude becomes a great mood. A great mood becomes a great day. A great day becomes a great year. A great year becomes a great life.

Excellence isn’t being the best; it’s doing your best.

Doing your best is more important than being the best.

Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.

Be the type of person who leaves a mark, not a scar.

We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.

Live in such a way that if someone spoke badly of you, no one would believe it.

Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you.

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.

Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great.
