Watch your thoughts;
they become words.
Watch your words;
they become actions.
Watch your actions;
they become habits.
Watch your habits;
they become character.
Watch your character;
it becomes your destiny.
1). If you don't think you can succeed you won't even try to put in the effort it takes to succeed.
2). If you believe that it takes EFFORT to succeed rather than ABILITY you are going to see failure as a challenge which you can and will overcome. Yet if you believe that ABILITY is the key to success, you are going to give up when you fail because ABILITY is innate and therefore unchangeable.
3). Those who can delay gratification don't get hng up on a failing result because they can see the bigger picture and will stay persistent.
Lesson: Tune out the instant delay of gratification.
So: Don't live with the fear of failure. It's okay to fail just as long as you persist and try and to do everything it takes to succeed.

We always think there's something better in the places we are not. In reality, a lighter shade of green the grass may be if I believe it so. I'm slowly starting to realize that in the end what matters most is the journey, not the destination. Its the struggle that keeps us going no matter how much we'd like to deny it. Then all of these things combine and lead us to make poor choices. The cycle starts and stops and starts again. I know tomorrow I'll find a new excuse to make the same mistakes again. If only I could learn the lesson the first time around... I wouldn't be stuck in another rutt with the same old stress. Then, for one moment I can see clearly and the weight the world doesn't seem so bad. In just a moment it can all change. Its these moments that I love, live and die for. In short, just live every moment as it were both your first last and you won't ever need a second chance. Ask yourself this question: "Should I dare to dream and try to live, or play it safe instead?" In my opinion, quit wasting time, losing or giving things away, putting what must be done off until tomorrow because "tomorrow I will change" was said yesterday. Never be afraid to make your life a tale worth telling!
