Don’t be discouraged when things don’t work out. Don’t be discouraged when you get knocked off course. Don’t be discouraged when you don’t see instant results. Just keep going. Remember why you started. Remind yourself where you’re going. It’s still possible. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

You can turn your life around. You may think you can’t, but that’s just because you don’t believe in yourself. No matter what trouble you’ve found yourself in, no matter what circumstances you’ve been put in, no matter how far you are from your idea of a happier life, you can turn your life around. It takes courage, perseverance, positivity and faith, but those are all tools you’ve already got stored on the shelf. Life has no manual, so just start using them. If you can dream it, you can do it.
We tend to let life happen to us. We tend to wait around for our desires to come along. We tend to fret about what life will throw at us. And then when life does come around, we tend to never be quite ready for it. And that’s ok. But our life is ours. Our life shouldn’t happen. We should happen. We can paint our life in any colour we choose. We can invent our life, simply through perseverance and passion. We can create the life we want and the life we love. It’s up to each of us to take that fortune. Start happening and your life will start too.
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained – Marie Curie
