1. Turn your wounds into wisdom.
Turn your mess into a message. Don’t let your pain be in vain. Do something positive with it!
2. You can have it all. Just not all at once. Be patient. Have an order. Prioritize. Focus on what you want, now. Plan for what you want later.
3. I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.
4. Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not
5. The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
6. One of the hardest things in life to learn are which bridges to cross and which bridges to burn.
7. You don’t become what you want, you become what you believe.
8. When you undervalue what you do, the world will undervalue who you are.
9. Self-esteem comes from being able to define the world in your own terms and refusing to abide by the judgments of others.
10. Become extremely intentional with everything that you do. Be fully on purpose. Make sure everything you do supports who you are and who you want to be.
11. It makes no difference how many peaks you reach if there was no pleasure in the climb. Enjoy your journey. So when people ask you, how did you do it, you have a great story to tell.
12. You are where you are in life because of what you believe is possible for yourself.
13. I don’t believe in failure. It’s not failure if you enjoy the process.
There is no failure, only feedback. Everything is either what you want, or what you don’t want. But failure is not real.
14. Your calling isn’t something that somebody can tell you about. It’s what you feel. It is the thing that gives you juice. The thing that you are supposed to do. And nobody can tell you what that is. You know it inside yourself
15. I was once afraid of people saying, “Who does she think she is?” Now I have the courage to stand and say, “This is who I am.
16. Books were my pass to personal freedom. I learned to read at age three, and there discovered was a whole world to conquer that went beyond our farm in Mississippi.
17. You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure out what it is you love–who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams.
18. I would like to thank the people who’ve brought me those dark moments, when I felt most wounded, betrayed. You have been my greatest teachers.
19. Wherever you are in your journey, I hope you, too, will keep encountering challenges. It is a blessing to be able to survive them, to be able to keep putting one foot in front of the other—to be in a position to make the climb up life’s mountain, knowing that the summit still lies ahead. And every experience is a valuable teacher.
20. When you make loving others the story of your life, there’s never a final chapter, because the legacy continues. You lend your light to one person, and he or she shines it on another and another and another.And I know for sure that in the final analysis of our lives- when the to-do lists are no more, when the frenzy is finished, when our e-mail inboxes are empty- the only thing that will have any lasting value is whether we’ve loved others and whether they’ve loved us.
21. When the talk about my troubles was loudest, I did the thing I’ve always spoken of most . I got still and listened for the answer to What is this here to teach me? The answer, first and foremost? Lay your ego down. Step out of your ego so you can recognize the truth. As soon as I did that, I was able to see the role I had played in creating “my circumstances,” without blaming other people. And — bingo! — I realized that all the noise about my struggle was a reflection of my personal angst and fear.
22. Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.
23. I have a lot of things to prove to myself. One is that I can live my life fearlessly.
24. I don’t want anyone who doesn’t want me.
25. Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe.
26. You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job and not be paid for it.
27. Don’t worry about being successful but work toward being significant and the success will naturally follow.
28. Surround yourself only with people who are going to take you higher.
29. Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
30. We can’t become what we need to be by remaining what we are.
31. I don’t think of myself as a poor deprived ghetto girl who made good. I think of myself as somebody who, from and early age, knew I was responsible for myself, and I had to make good.
32. What I know is that if you do work that you love, and the work fulfills you, the rest will come.
33. All my life I have wanted to lead people an empathy space. To a gratitude space. I want us all to fulfill our greatest potential. To find our calling, and summon the courage to live it.
34. The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.
35. You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.
