My favourite Quote

As I said in the last post, I love quotes. Today I want to share my all time favourite quote, it's quite a long one- but take the time to read it through.

"Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. 
Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It's for your convenience, not the callers.
Don't be afraid to go out on a limb. That's where the fruit is. 
Don't burn bridges. You'll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river. 
Don't forget, a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. 
Don't major in minor things. 
Don't say you don't have enough time. You have the exactly the same number of hours that were given to Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. 
Don't spread yourself too thin. Learn to say no politely and quickly. 
Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. 
Don't waste time grieving over past mistakes. Learn from them and move on. 
Every person needs to have their moment in the sun, when they raise their arms in victory, knowing that on this day, at this hour, they were at their very best. 
Get your priorities straight. No one ever said on his death bed,"Gee, if I'd only spent more time at the office".
Give people a second chance, but not a third. 
Judge your success by the degree that you're enjoying peace, health and love. 
Learn to listen. 
Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly. 
Leave everything a little better than you found it. 
Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. 
Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life and death matters, nothing is an important as it first seems. 
Never cut what can be untied. 
Never overestimate your power to change others. 
Never underestimate your power to change yourself. 
Remember that overnight success usually takes about fifteen years. 
Remember that winners do what losers don't want to do. 
Seek opportunity, not security. A boat in a harbour is safe, but in time its bottom will rot out. 
Spend less time worrying about who's right, and more time deciding what's right. 
Stop blaming others. 
Take responsibility for every area of your life. 
Success is getting what you want. Happiness is liking what you get. 
The importance of winning is not what we get from it, but what we become because of it. 
When facing a difficult task, act as though it's impossible to fail. "
-Jackson Brown Jr.
