“Ships don’t sink because of the water around them; they sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and weigh you down”
Life is crazy. Life is unexpected. Life is a whirlwind of roller-coasters. All that is the beauty of life. Don’t take it too seriously.
If something happened to make you feel bad, you have the power to make yourself feel better. And, if your problem is not controlled by you, then who cares?! You can’t do anything about it, so don’t worry about it!
Our brains are incredible machines. Think of all of your idols, all of the “great” people of history. Do you think they are better than you? Do you think that they were given something that you weren’t? The only difference between them and you are the opportunities they were given AND chose to take! And in some cases they may have not even had been given the opportunity but they made it themselves!
I bet you’re thinking, “It’s not that simple”…
But it is…when you break it down.
As wise Dr. Suess said, “You have a brain in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose”.
Your brain can do the same things those “great” people’s brains can. So why not do it? Quit holding yourself back and taking whatever hits you!
Don’t just ride the wave we call life, learn to SURF it!!
