Persistent people begin their success where others end in failureToday my fourteen-year-old daughter turned to me and said, “I found a new quote that I’m going to live my life by from now on.” The quote goes something like this: Every minute you spend being angry or sad is a minute of happiness that you will never get back.
This child of mine has always been fascinated by quotes. She has bought three books of quotes in the past year and some of her favorites are plastered to the walls in her room. For a school project she used the quote, “Only dead fish go with the current…” I like that one. Quotes are fun and inspirational, which is why I’ll end my blog with a personal favorite. It’s actually a part of a quote by Marianne Williamson that was used in the movie Akeelah and the Bee:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
