At any given point you can release your greatest self. Don’t let anyone hold you back. Don’t let anyone dilute you. Don’t be peer pressured into being less than you are. People willing to dilute themselves for the sake of others is one of the great tragedies of our time. Stop letting others define and set the pace for your life. Get out there and be your best. Do your best. Live your best. Make every day count and you’ll see how exponentially more exciting, thrilling, successful, happy and full your life will be.
— pointing quotation by Steve Maraboli
I know my flaws before other people point them out to me.
Tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy.
Self-control is strength. Calmness is mastery. You have to get to a point where your mood doesn't shift based on the insignificant actions of someone else. Don't allow others to control the direction of your life. Don't allow your emotions to overpower your intelligence.
God isn't what's wrong with the world.
It's just who people blame when there's nowhere to point the finger but at ourselves.
Don't expect everyone to understand your journey, especially if they've never had to walk your path.
Vengeance is not the point; change is. But the trouble is that in most people's minds the thought of victory and the thought of punishing the enemy coincide.
It's like a novelist writing far out things. If it makes a point and makes sense, then people like to read that. But if it's off in left field and goes over the edge, you lose it. The same with musical talent, I think.
A person who is gifted sees the essential point and leaves the rest as surplus.
There comes a point when you have to realize that you'll never be good enough for some people. The question is, is that your problem or theirs?
Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another.
The whole life is but a point of time;
let us enjoy it, therefore, while it lasts, and not spend it to no purpose.
