Perseverance

I'm convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the
non-successful ones is pure perseverance. It is so hard.
Steve Jobs

Inheritance

So you must not be frightened if a sadness rises up before you, larger than any you have ever known, if a restiveness, like light and cloud shadow passes over your hands and over all that you do. You must think that something is happening with you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand; it will not let you fall... Believe in a love that is being stored for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far -  as you wish without having to step outside it. 


-       - Quotes from Rilke

Acceptance

“The truth is: Belonging starts with self-acceptance. Your level of belonging, in fact, can never be greater than your level of self-acceptance, because believing that you're enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and imperfect.” — Brené Brown

Dominant Thoughts

Our life always expresses the result of our dominant thoughts — Søren Kierkegaard

The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.

Relaxation

If our minds are always busy, they don't get time to do basic maintenance - to sort, tidy up and take out the trash. If we don't periodically clear out space in our minds, there’s no room for new ideas to take root.

Where do you find stillness each day and each week? Plan for quiet time, relaxation and stillness daily, even if it's only for 5 or 10 minutes.
-- John Robson

Growth

Growth is an erratic forward movement: two steps forward, one step back. Remember that and be very gentle with yourself.

Everyone is Broken

Anne LaMott's 4th item she's learned from life.
4. Everyone is screwed up, broken, clingy, and scared, even the people who seem to have it more or less together. They are much more like you than you would believe. So try not to compare your insides to their outsides. Also, you can't save, fix or rescue any of them, or get any of them sober. But radical self-care is quantum, and radiates out into the atmosphere, like a little fresh air. It is a huge gift to the world. When people respond by saying, "Well, isn't she full of herself," smile obliquely, like Mona Lisa, and make both of you a nice cup of tea.

Ancient Wisdom

"Our bodies and hearts know so much more than our minds. We hold an ancient wisdom that most of us have no idea exists. We are the sum of our ancestors and all their hopes and dreams for us—how can their prayers not be etched into our bones?" – Raquel Scianna
