Risk Taking

The biggest risk is to not take any risk.

Sometimes you have to play with fire to stay warm.

If you are going to walk on thin ice, you might as well dance.

 

 

Motivation

The first two letters of ‘Goal’ spell ‘GO‘.

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic. It takes sweat, determination and hard work.

 Find one thing that you truly love. Let that one thing consume your thoughts. Let it be your (healthy) obsession.

 

 

Health

Your body is the only place you have to live in. Look after it!

Have no fear of perfection., You will never reach it.

Who cares if you did not breathe properly while in downward-facing dog. You showed up. Give yourself some slack.

‘Fit’ has many different definitions. Your ‘fit’ doesn’t have to be running.

 

 

Success

It seems that to be successful, you must be busy. Busy replying emails, busying staying back at work; too busy to relax and chill. You are as busy as you choose to be.

 

 

Happiness

Happiness, like anger, jealousy, and sadness, is an emotion. Don’t expect to feel it all the time.

Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.

 

 

Love

Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.

Learn to waste time with the people you love.

There are three things that will always be there. Faith. Help. And Love. The most important is Love.

Everyone you meet is fighting a different battle. Be open. Be kind.

 Smile and acknowledge strangers. They’re only strangers because you haven’t met them before.

 

 

Life

The best memories are the ones you try to explain, but in the end you just say “you had to be there.”

The things that excite you are not random. They are connected to your purpose. Follow them.

Fill your life with adventures. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.

Plan to do nothing sometimes. I dare you.

What will you choose to do with this life you are given?
