If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
There is no greater sin than desire, no greater curse than discontent. He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.
Wake up determined. Go to bed satisfied.
You will never be who you want to be, until you are happy with who you are.
Thomas F. Shubnell
One of man’s biggest mistakes is to believe that he’s working for someone else.
You are always working for yourself. You may be an important employee to someone, but for yourself you are everything. You are your life. You work for yourself!
The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning.
Ivy Baker Priest
Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.
What do you get out of your job and what does your boss (if there is one) get out of you? Do you benefit from your job in more ways than just earning money?
If you don’t, you should reevaluate your current priorities and change something!
He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.
It is not about having it all or about having always more than somebody or some past you. It is about having enough, which is more a question of mindset than a question of material property.
He who is not contented with what he has would not be contented with what he would like to have.
Being satisfied and happy can not be achieved by constantly buying new stuff.
As long as you are not satisfied with what you have right now, as long as you do not appreciate your belongings you won’t find satisfaction by looking at outer circumstances. Satisfaction comes from the inside.
You will never find salvation in consumerism.
A stumbling block to the pessimist is a stepping stone to the optimist.
Well you could call this quote a classic and although it seems obvious and simple, it is important and profound.
There is the saying that there are no heavy obstacles, just better and worse ways to cope with them.
Obstacles always come with solutions that you can figure out. This process is great and gives you a great reward, a great feeling of satisfaction. So instead of seeing obstacles as something negative, be happy to encounter them and see them as a fun challenge.
Be like a child. If a child has to face some not so cool things (‘Wash the dishes’ to give an example) you can easily convert this task into a fun game. The child then sees the challenge, the chance for achievement, and diggs in. Be like that, think like that!
