Progress in life is not measured by security but by growth. Growth means taking risks as we will never get anywhere interesting by always doing the safe thing.
"You can't stay in the harbour and discover new worlds at the same time."
Life is a journey, a process. Everyday, we must deliberately make the effort to take a few steps, learn, grow and become better than we are today. The secret of our future is hidden in our daily routine.
There are three choices that we can make with things that bother us.
We can deal with it, get over it or learn to live with it.
When making choices, we must never lose sight of the big picture.If we can't see the forest for the trees, we will almost certain to get lost.
