Life Lessons

1.Don’t listen to those who say, “It’s not done that way.” Maybe it’s not, but maybe you will. Don’t listen to those who say, “You’re taking too big a chance.” Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today. Most importantly, don’t listen when the little voice of fear inside of you rears its ugly head and says, “They’re all smarter than you out there. They’re more talented, they’re taller, prettier, luckier and have connections…” I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others by your own efforts, and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live, the chances are you’ll be a person worthy of your own respect.  
Neil Simon.

2. Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge is empathy, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another's world. It requires profound purpose, larger-than-self kind of understanding. Bill Bullard.

3.Give up defining yourself-to yourself or to others. And don't be concerned by how others define you. When they define you, they're limiting themselves, so it's their problem. When you interact with people, don't be there primarily as a function or role, but as the field of conscious presence.You can only lose something that you have. Not something that you are. Eckhard Tole.

4. Do not settle for something less. If you're at the end of the road, choose rather not to settle at all. If you notice red flags and uncertainty, don't take a risk. Never venture into the unknown with someone who spins out stories like it's the truth, someone who has no principles in life and someone who has no idea what it means to have a connection with somebody or anybody.
