“Quotes tell you how to feel”
As quoted by my favourite writer & mentor Gary Lennox. With that said, here’s a list of words I believe are worthy of referring to often and living by. We all need guidance, inspiration and help sometimes. Great quotes get to the point and nail it. They don’t require us to peruse self-help shelves or read an entire book. They just give us what we need and leave it at that. With us, to with what we may or please. So here are some that have greatly resonated with me.
“1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don't Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don't Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.”
