Can or Can’t?

Sean Stephenson quote

Our decision to believe we can or believe we can’t sets us on significantly altered paths. A lot of the time, we believe we can’t, often because of our past, our cultures, and those around us. But we have to remember that these shouldn’t define what we can accomplish. We’re constantly gaining experience, getting smarter, and evolving. Our culture just portrays things as they are and have been, not necessarily how things should be. And we are all too different to each other to even compare between us. Just because someone else cannot achieve something, doesn’t mean we can’t. If you can conceive something and you can believe in it, then you can achieve it. Don’t let anything or anyone stop you.

Thought of the Day: Self-Awareness

Ralph Ellison quote

We are our strongest when we are self-aware. When we are self-aware, we stop pretending to be who we are not. When we are self-aware, we can see our flaws, accept them and grow from them. When we are self-aware, we can optimally adapt to every situation, defeat our fears and triumph with humility. I’m not suggesting we become obsessed with monitoring or overanalysing ourselves, but we can learn a little more about who we are everyday and evolve into the person we want to become everyday. Don’t be afraid to know that person. Don’t be afraid to be that person. When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.
