Dream Big Quotes

dream big

“The person who gets the farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore.”  ~ Dale Carnegie

My friends and I tend to be big dreamers.  We fail a lot!  That sounds terrible, but in reality it is good because we dream big and try new things all the time.  This quote stood out to me because I feel like those that take the biggest risks in life are always the ones that go the farthest.  Of course, taking big risks doesn’t mean that you will always be successful, but the bigger risks you take – the further you can go.  By pushing past the boundaries of what has been done before or where your imagination can take you, you can take huge leaps in your life.… Read the rest

Dreams vs Fears

“Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” Les Brown

It is so easy to let your fears overcome you and stop you from not only living your dreams, but seeing what your dreams even are.  When your thoughts are occupied by all of the things that could go wrong there is very little room for all of the things that could go right.

If you are very honest with yourself, I think you will notice that you probably have a lot of fears that linger in the back of your mind but probably aren’t very likely at all.  They have probably never even happened before but you still spend time worrying that they might happen in the future.… Read the rest

Do What You Love Quotes

quote of do what you love

The biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living at doing what they most enjoy.” – Malcolm Forbes

Malcom Forbes, owner and publisher of Forbes magazine said these words in regards to the number of people he saw who did not have a job that they absolutely loved.  Of course you have to be somewhat practical in terms of making money, but I think what Forbes meant by this quote was that the majority of people don’t take enough risk when it comes to choosing a career.

Most people are very afraid of not having a job, even for a little while.  But if you can take the risk to try to make money on your passion, you will not regret it! … Read the rest

Lightness and Darkness Quotes

Skyline - lightness and darkness

There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year’s course.

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word ‘happy’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. ~Carl Jung

 

This quote by Carl Jung emphasizes the fact that in life, it is impossible to only experience happiness and never sadness.  Everyone wants to minimize the amount of sadness and negative emotions that they experience throughout life, but it is impossible to ever fully eliminate them.  As Jung points out, there can not be true happiness without sadness.  This is because without the experience of sadness, one can never truly experience happiness.… Read the rest

Life Choices Quotes

quote about life choices

“You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own and you know what you know.
And you are the one who’ll decide where to go.” ~Dr. Seuss

This quote by Dr. Seuss is all about making choices in your life and just being you.  So many people will tell you what to do in your life, your teachers, parents, friends and bosses.  Most of them mean well, they are giving you advice that has applied to their life, but that doesn’t mean it is the right advice for you and certainly doesn’t mean that you should take it.  Sometimes, when other people give you advice it is just down right annoying, and it takes everything you have in you not to tell them off!… Read the rest

Luxury Quotes

luxurious house

“A glamorous life is quite different to a life of luxury. I don’t need luxury. For years, I was practically broke but I was still very vain and glamorous. And I still am.”
~ Lady Gaga

You gotta love Lady Gaga.  Her style, attitude and music are so authentic and highly entertaining.  She is constantly inventing pop culture as she goes and I think she will probably go down in history as the next Madonna.  She is so unique, but what makes her this way?  Some of the answer to that question is what she has just expressed in this quote.

In this quote she is talking about the difference between a glamorous life and a luxurious life.  What she means is that she doesn’t need the money and elite kind of society that a life of luxury would bring. … Read the rest
