“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter.” -Martin Luther King Jr.
It is essential to speak up for the things that matter. We should never crush our inner feelings. If we crush our inner voice, our life crumbles. It becomes useless. In order to live life appropriately, it is necessary that we stand up for ourselves and for the issues that affect our lives. We must fight for what we believe in.
“Accentuate the positive; eliminate the negative.” -Johnny Mercer
Give importance to the positive thoughts and get rid of the negative thoughts that roar in your mind. When we are trapped in a bad situation, we must focus on the positive. If we accentuate the positive, we can get peace of mind and eventually, a peaceful life. Having a positive attitude all the time is the formula for creating a happy life, away from pessimistic thoughts. Always think optimistically whenever you are faced with a setback or whenever you fail to reach a goal. When your plans backfire, do not get discouraged. Thinking positively will provide you the energy to try again. Positive attitude is an important ingredient for success.
“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” -Kahlil Gibran
Of course, true beauty is within. If a person has a kind heart, he will be loved by everyone. What matters is what lies within the heart and soul. True beauty is shown when a person treats others lovingly with kindness, respect, and understanding, sharing the light in the heart to others. Don’t judge a book by its cover. If your heart is glowing, other people can see your true beauty. True beauty resides within a person’s heart, not in the face.
“Destiny is not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice.” -William Jennings Bryan
Destiny depends on our efforts and actions. To reach our destiny, we must work with courage, dignity, and determination, moving ourselves forward in life toward success. You must set your own course in life and make appropriate decisions. We must make choices and take steps in order to achieve our goals. Our life and our destiny is determined by the decisions we take as individuals. We should have faith and hope and we should work with our best ability to reach our destiny. Remember that future depends on the type of choices you make and those decisions will ultimately shape your life. Be wise and make good choices!
