Standing on Shoulders (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 322)


“Sacrifice is a part of life. It’s supposed to be. It’s not something to regret. It’s something to aspire to.”
— Mitch Albom

Much of our success in life is a result of our standing on the shoulders of other people. Likewise, much of the success of the people around us will come about because we are willing to let them stand on our shoulders too. Sacrifice is one of the most important qualities one can possess. If you never learn to give up some things, you’ll never be able to gain better things. Read more…

Why You Should Never Give Up (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 302)


“When things go wrong, don’t go with them.”
— Elvis Presley

The one main reason so many people don’t reach their goals, never realize their dreams, don’t get what they want, and don’t get to where they want to go is because they give up too soon. And let’s face it, there are probably one or two or several things we have given up on at one point or another in our lives. The reason we give up isn’t nearly as important as the fact that we just give up.

Share the Struggle (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 255)


“We only have what we give.”
— Isabel Allende

Tragedy has a way of playing both sides of the same coin. On one side, it causes us to feel infinite grief, unbearable heartache, and crushing pain. But on the other side, it forces us to do something about what we are feeling. It weakens us and gives us strength at the same time. This is why we find beauty rising from ashes and new purpose coming forth out of pain. Everyone has a story of some kind that forms the foundation for what they do in life. Read more…

Sitzfleisch (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 249)


“Stubbornly persist, and you will find that the limits of your stubbornness go well beyond the stubbornness of your limits.”
— Robert Brault

Persistence and perseverance are often used interchangeably. While they are very similar in many ways, there are a few small differences that can change how you live your life. Persistence will tell you when you’re illogically pursuing something that is already a lost cause. Perseverance, on the other hand, will keep you calm and steady pursuing a goal that is meaningful.

3 Simple Ways We Sabotage Ourselves (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 172)

3 Simple Ways We Sabotage Ourselves

“When we can’t dream any longer we die.”
— Emma Goldman

We often fail at life not because we’re being hindered or even because we’re facing an obstacle. We often fail because we choose not to show up for the battle. We want something and don’t get it not because we’re not good enough or smart enough, but because we don’t fight long enough. Much of life is about not giving up. Showing up. Day in and day out. Sticking by the stuff. Getting it done. And when we don’t do this, we sabotage our own progress and possible success.

(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #4)

“There is no failure except in no longer trying.”
— Elbert Hubbard

Life is too expensive to spend giving up. Yet many people who have it in their minds to make it big in the world do just that. They waste valuable time and energy throwing away perfectly good opportunities just because things don’t work the way they want them to. While it’s in their minds to be successful, it’s not in their hearts, and that’s why they never make it. When we can no longer see the goal in front of us, and see that our dreams are worth fighting for, we eventually die — not physically, but emotionally, mentally, intellectually, and spiritually.  Read more…
