Quotes Explained:

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” -Helen Keller

I agree that in order to succeed, people need to believe in themselves and have faith that it will work out in the end. Keeping a positive attitude and having that confidence or can-do attitude makes achievement so much easier.

 

“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” -Maya Angelou

It’s being able to look past the setbacks and having determination, knowing that in the end everything will be right. Sometimes in life things don’t happen the way we envisioned it would, but that’s okay. Nothing in life is perfect. The point is being able to see the many successes that happen even though along the way things may have seemed impossible. Maybe look at the whole picture and see how it all worked out, despite the little things. The point is to never give up!

 

“Well done is better than well said.” -Benjamin Franklin

You can talk a good talk, but if you don’t do the things you’ve said then you may as well not said anything at all. I would rather be told little but shown much because actions speak so much louder than words and makes more of a difference.

 

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Having knowledge and being willing is a great start, but it’s simply not enough to make a difference. To make a difference there need to be action. To make a difference people need to apply what they know to the things that they do. Make a conscious effort to make that difference by the actions we have.




“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

If you’re looking for a dull and lifeless life then sure settle for less than you’re capable of. But if you’re looking to live life to the fullest then go for it, don’t settle, and strive for all that you deserve. There’s not enough time in life for settling for less. Look in your heart and live for what you’re passionate about. No matter how difficult it may seem to achieve, it will be more than worth it to be able to live the life you deserve to be living.
