It has been so long since I last blogged! Today, I’m back again with another inspirational post. This time, I’m going to be posting quotes from the book “Who says you can’t? You do” by Daniel Chidiac.
All the quotes I’m about to mention are from the novel itself. I reflect on everything Daniel says and it really pushes me to be more. It is incredibly empowering and motivational. I hope his words will also have a similar effect on you.
If you take a good look around, you will notice that most people would have perceived every creation as impossible before it was created.
Everything seems impossible at first. If 30 years ago, someone told you that in the future they would be able to use their phones to take pictures and face-time with someone across the world, would you have believed it?
I hear people say to me, “I know how life works; you wake up, go to work, and come home. It’s the same thing every day.” My reply is, “No, that’s how your life works.”
This is so powerful. How does this statement make you feel?
It is only achievement and fulfilment together that brands someone truly successful.
I completely agree. What is your definition of success?
Most people know what they want; they just believe it’s out of their reach. We let so many dreams, visions and ideals slip because we think others might find them stupid, that it will be too hard, or we give up due to the hurdles we come across.
Sometimes, it seems like it’s impossible. As a result, we don’t even bother to try in order to avoid the likelihood of disappointment.
Everyone on the road of achievement has experienced self-doubt. Those who win, though, always overpower that doubt with self-assurance. You’re not the only one that has or will experience hardship on your road.
You’re not the only one who is experiencing hardship. But if it’s something you want, you must persevere.
What’s happened doesn’t determine what’s going to happen.
Don’t let your past control your future.
You must take action every single day towards what you want, no matter how small it may seem at the time. Do at least one thing each day, make sure you recognize the progress, and be proud of yourself for doing it.
Do something each day that gets you closer towards your goals. It doesn’t matter how small it is. You must keep moving.
You can spend your whole life hanging on to what could or should have been, but you can’t go back in time. When we read a novel, we turn the pages forward, not backwards. Having regret is taking away the essence of life, because at that very moment when the decision was made, it was exactly what you wanted.
This really resonated with me. I have some regrets in life and I would wish, “If only, I could turn back time….” But I can’t. I have to accept that and move forward. There is no future in the past.
We surround ourselves with stress, worry, selfishness, sadness, hate and every other feeling that kills us. Not just physically, but mentally, financially, and spiritually. It attacks every part of our life, directly or indirectly, and affects most people around us.
I am not immune to those emotions either. I feel them all. But I try not to let it consume me. It can be very difficult.
Experiences are there to shape who we are, even though at times they seem too much to bear. Isn’t it true that some of your hardest experiences taught you the most?
