Get started now

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what! Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful."

I feared being alone until I learned to like myself.
I feared failure until I realized that I only fail when I don’t try.
I feared success until I realized that I had to try in order to be happy with myself.
I feared people’s opinions until I learned that people would have opinions about me anyway.
I feared rejection until I learned to have faith in myself.
I feared pain until I learned that it’s necessary for growth.
I feared the truth until I saw the ugliness of lies.
I feared life until I experienced its beauty.
I feared death until I realized that it’s not an end, but a beginning.
I feared my destiny until I realized that I had the power to change my life.
I feared hate until I saw that it was nothing but ignorance.
I feared ridicule until I learned how to laugh at myself.
I feared growing old until I realized that I gained wisdom every day.
I feared the future until I realized that life just kept getting better.
I feared the past until I realized that it could no longer hurt me.
I feared the dark until I saw the beauty of the starlight.
I feared the light until I learned that the truth would give me strength.
I feared change until I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly had to undergo a metamorphosis before it could fly…

Every one is brave, as we get inspired we decide to do it and persist in our dreams. We have to embrace our fears to give space to the unknown.

Marianne Williamson

“You must choose a new you in order to become the new you. The issue here is not that you are running away from, but rather what you are running toward. You' re not just rejecting what you don’t want, but proactively claiming what you do.”

Don't be the slave of your own past

"Be not the slave of your own past-plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience, that shall explain and overlook the old”. 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Facundo Cabral

“From my mother I learned that never is too late, that always is possible to start again, right now you may say stop to habits that destroy you, to the things that shackle you, to the credit card, to the newsreels that poison you since the morning, to the ones that want to lead your life in the wrong way”. 
Facundo Cabral

“Sometimes you've got to let everything go - purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out."

Swami Vivekananda

"Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced." 

 Swami Vivekananda
