We all have ways of encapsulating our life experiences.
Here are a few of mine:
Life isn't a challenge, the challenge is to create a life.
Life isn't gauged by what you create but by the extent of your creations.
"Life is your best opportunity - embrace it".
"Success is a personal experience".
"We are what we think - not who we think we are".
"People are best described by what they do and not by what they say".
"Trust those who do as they say".
"You can only live, without fear".
"There is no love to share if you have no love for yourself".
"Happiness is for us to create as we choose - not for others to provide".
"You are never lonely if you know that you are loved".
"Freedom requires that you act and are accountable to your conscience".
"God is the perfect brand".
"Knowledge is strength".
"Know and value your instincts".
"Tomorrow's outcome is always uncertain".
"Create your own image - don't live in someone else's".
..and one that I have plagiarized from my Dad -
"If at first you don't succeed, try,try,again.."
