Life Is Like Sex
Or You Can Get On Top And
Enjoy The Ride
What gives you energy? What gets your motor running and excites you? Don’t ask what the world needs, ask what makes you come alive and then go do it for what the world needs most is for you to come alive!
Everyday bosses, teachers, lovers and friends misdiagnose genius as madness. They do not understand. You will always be too much for some people. Passion means you love something so much you can’t wait for those activities that allow you to exercise your strengths, skills and superpowers. Identify what makes you different, rare and exceptional. Don't hide your spark, bury your ideas or smooth out your edges.
You’re only given a little spark of madness, you must not lose it. Robin Williams

The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love. Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Naiveté is never an admirable trait in adults. Dennis Prager

To the hopeful it is encouraging because it means things may get better.

Don’t be afraid to live out your fantasies.
You only have so many chances to jump on a fantasy bus in search of a better life. Who knows where the bus might take you?
Blessed are the curious for they shall have all the adventures.
"Fear Is Always Near When You Make The Most Of Your Life. If you want to live a wildly happy successful life you have to make friends with the dirtiest F word of them all…fear.
Take one minute and imagine yourself in 30 days and you have faced none of your fears and nothing in your life has changed. How do you feel? Do you feel happy, sad, fulfilled or do you feel like you had a chance to change and you let that opportunity pass you buy?
Now take one minute and imagine how you would feel in 30 days if you started to change. You have a choice to make, to choose either courage over comfort."
Everything you've ever wanted...
is on the other side of fear.

If everything is under control, you're just not going fast enough.

"We who lived in the concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread.

Victor Frankl
