If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
You are the hero you’ve been waiting for. No matter what challenge you’re facing, there is no one who can save you the way that you can. We all need support, but it’s up to you to take the first step.
Deep down within all of us is a strong spirit, an unseen force that we’re born with. I call it the hero within us — and you are the hero you’ve been waiting for. When you’re lost, when you’re feeling like you need someone to rescue you, that someone is you.
The most important thing you’ll ever do in life is take care of yourself. Find out who you are, what you need, what you want. The more you take care of yourself, the more the universe will take care of you.
The longest distance is from the head to the heart. Sometimes we focus so much on being the figure out there that we forget to enjoy life. It’s good to take a break from thinking and just live from the heart more. Sometimes the best solution to any challenge is to leave it alone and go have some fun.
Go where it’s warm. You don’t have to chase unavailable people. You don’t have to change them or change yourself for them. Choose people who, when you need them, run to you instead of running to the hills.
It’s so powerful to go from can’t to won’t. “I won’t be in this bad relationship anymore. I won’t work at this job anymore.” When you go from can’t to won’t, then you go from being a victim to being empowered.
People want to be heard. Listening is underrated.
You don’t have to get anyone’s approval anymore. You’re not asking for approval, you’re giving it.
Look people in the eye. Let them really see you.
Life is meant to be enjoyed. Really.
In any situation, when the pain outweighs the pleasure, it’s time to go.
Sometimes just accepting something for what it is helps alleviate the obsession to change it.
You and your romantic soulmate will meet at exactly the right time when you’re both ready. Until then, focus on the soulmates you already have in your life. Maybe it’s a family member, a friend or a co-worker who is a special person in your life.
I think the next stage of the sexual revolution is going to be where men are accepted for being sensitive yet still strong and women are accepted for being strong yet still feminine.
Relax. You don’t have to figure it all out today.
Listen to your intuition. It’s a great guide for you.
Don’t give up. Most people don’t achieve their goal because they gave up too soon. It may be a hard climb, but if you stay the course, you will eventually succeed. It’s inevitable. If you feel like you’re having trouble keeping the dream alive, take a breather and get some rest. You’ll get your second wind. Whatever it takes, don’t give up.
