Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying fundamentals. There are no new fundamentals. You’ve got to be a little suspicious of someone who says, “I’ve got a new fundamental.” That’s like someone inviting you to tour a factory where they are manufacturing antiques. Some things you have to do every day. Eating seven apples on Saturday night instead of one a day just isn’t going to get the job done. Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. It is the accumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgments that leads us to either fortune or failure.
I cried today. I was rejected, I was told by the one I love dearly that I had changed into something not worth having anymore. I cried. I hid in the bathroom and cried some more.
After the sobbing, later I remembered the words to this song.
Everyday is so wonderful And suddenly it's hard to breathe Now and then I get insecure From all the pain, feel so ashamed
I am beautiful no matter what they say Words can't bring me down I am beautiful in every single way Yes, words can't bring me down, oh no So don't you bring me down today
Tryin' hard to fill the emptiness, the piece is gone Left the puzzle undone, ain't that the way it is?'
Cause you are beautiful no matter what they say Words can't bring you down, oh no You are beautiful in every single way Yes, words can't bring you down, oh no So don't you bring me down today No matter what we do No matter what we do (No matter what we say)
No matter what we say(We're the song that's outta tune)(Full of beautiful mistakes)(And everywhere we go)And everywhere we go (The sun will always shine)The sun will always, always shine!(But tomorrow we might awake on the other side)
'Cause we are beautiful no matter what they say Yes, words won't bring us down, oh no We are beautiful in every single way Yes, words can't bring us down, oh no So don't you bring me down today Don't you bring me down today Don't you bring me down today
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
Don't be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week's value out of a year while another man gets a full year's value out of a week. -Charles Richards
