Accidents Don’t Happen (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 354)


“Down in their hearts, wise men know this truth: the only way to help yourself is to help others.”
— Elbert Hubbard

As human beings, we have a tendency to act as though our problems are the only problems in the world.

“To the timid and hesitating everything is impossible because it seems so.”
— Sir Walter Scott

With constant pressure coming our way to be better, get smarter, and produce more, it can be hard to do the things we actually dread. The difficult part of staying motivated is just that — staying motivated. Staying positive and on top of our game through all the work we have to do on a regular basis is work in and of itself.
