“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”

One of the biggest and most common problems with improving your life or the success you want out of it is that you may not take consistent action over a longer time period.
Now, consistency isn't the sexiest or most exciting word.
But it is, coupled with time, what will give you real results in your life.

“Certain flaws are necessary for the whole. It would seem strange if old friends lacked certain quirks.”
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

One of the most common challenges that people email me about – and I myself have had quite a bit of trouble with – is perfectionism.
It's an issue that can hold you back in life. Not only from achieving and finishing what you want.
sometimes from even getting started. While at the same time draining your self-esteem, causing self-doubt and getting you stuck in a negative spiral where it can become harder and harder to start moving forward.

“Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.”
“A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.”
A very simple way to spread more happiness in your own little world is through kindness. It's often an easy and quick thing you can do as you move through your daily life.
But we sometimes forget about it. Or don’t remember how it can help us all.
