Ik was op zoek naar een gedicht wat ik aan het einde van een Essence Training heb ontvangen. Ik kan het nog niet helemaal vinden, maar kwam wel deze onderstaande teksten tegen op: Motivational Thoughts – Motivational Words van Jonathan Lockwood Huie. Je vindt er daar nog veel meer, maar hier een handvol van die website. Als Apple Fanboy vind ik natuurlijk de tweede erg goed 😉
Work like you don’t need the money.
Love like you’ve never been hurt.
Dance like nobody’s watching.
– Satchel Paige
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
– Steve Jobs
Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do.
Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors.
Try to be better than yourself.
– William Faulkner
There is no passion to be found playing small –
in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
– Nelson Mandela
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
– Mark Twain
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
– Marianne Williamson
Live with intention.
Walk to the edge.
Play with abandon.
Choose with no regret.
Appreciate your friends.
Continue to learn.
Do what you love.
Live as if this is all there is.
– Mary Anne Radmacher
Everyone should carefully observe which way his heart draws him,
and then choose that way with all his strength.
– Hasidic Saying
To live is to choose.
But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for,
where you want to go and why you want to get there.
– Kofi Annan
Talent is God-given; be humble.
Fame is man-given; be thankful.
Conceit is self-given; be careful.
– John Wooden
Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.
The real miracle is the love that inspires them.
In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.
– A Course in Miracles
In spite of unseasonable wind, snow and unexpected weather of all sorts – a gardener still plants.
And tends what they have planted … believing that Spring will come.
– Mary Anne Radmacher
Visualize your end result as having already been accomplished.
Let the image of your success play on the giant screen
in full color with surround sound – so real you can smell and taste it.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
– Norman Vincent Peale
