Some people come into your life and they become a huge blessing to you while some, a contact with them will make you regret ever knowing them. Austin has been a huge blessing to me especially in the area of personal development and ideas generation since we became friends. An hour spent with him is usually loaded with inspiration and positive energy. So after dragging my legs for some months, I finally paid him a visit last week. “Why won’t your head be correct?!” I screamed when I walked into Austin’s room for the first time and saw these massive stickers all over the wall of his room.
Here are some of the words boldly and brightly etched on postcards and pinned to the walls in Austin’s room. He said he feeds on stuff like these and other related and relevant words.He told me these quotes are responsible for the way he thinks and approaches life. I suspect something will shift in your mind after going through these quotes I found on Austin’s wall.
“A brilliant idea is like a baby in a mother’s womb.
You need to bring it out in the world, nurture it, feed it, grow it, till it becomes big enough to take care of itself.
If you leave it at the stage of an idea itself, it is as good as nonexistent.”
“Coming out of your comfort zone is tough in the beginning, chaotic in the middle, and awesome in the end…because in the end, it shows you a whole new world!!
Make an attempt..”
“Be like a duck, paddling and working very hard inside the water, but what everyone sees is a smiling and calm face.”
“Comfort is your biggest trap and coming out of comfort zone your biggest challenge.”
“To achieve what 1% of the world’s population has (Financial Freedom), you must be willing to do what only 1% dare to do..hard work and perseverance of highest order.”
“All of us, at some point in life, get brilliant ideas…only a few of us have the courage to take the next step.”
“Got an idea to start”, “Thinking to start” and “Making a commitment to start” is one aspect of life.
Actually “Starting” what you truly want to do in life, is a completely different ball game.”
“You can make EXCUSES and earn SYMPATHY,
You can make MONEY and earn ADMIRATION.
The choice is always yours…”
“You will either find a way, or an excuse. It depends on how badly you want it in life.”
“It is better to risk starving to death than giving up on your dream. If you have given up on your dream, what’s left?”
“Life’s situations are like a set of cards in your hands.
You cannot change the cards, but you can surely play with them in your own unique way.”
“Whenever you think seriously to achieve something, just take one advise : Think on Paper”
