Possibilities Quotes

I believe that life is a journey, often difficult and sometimes incredibly cruel, but we are well equipped for it if only we tap into our talents and gifts and allow them to blossom.

Live out of your imagination instead of out of your memory.

The things you want are always possible; it is just that the way to get them is not always apparent. The only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life is you, and that can be a considerable obstacle because you carry the baggage of insecurities and past experience.

The only limits to the possibilities in your life tomorrow are the buts you use today.

Honor your commitments with integrity.

Change is difficult but often essential to survival.

If you view all the things that happen to you, both good and bad, as opportunities, then you operate out of a higher level of consciousness.

If you put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness.

It takes someone with a vision of the possibilities to attain new levels of experience. Someone with the courage to live his dreams.

I don't recall the exact quote but I did go hear Les Brown speak when he was in Toronto many years ago. And one of the phrases he said that really influenced me over the years was that he suggested that we stay away from toxic people that are harmful to your well being. I have since incorporated this suggestion as part of my own motivational talks I give.

Inspired Robin said...

Clint, that's a fantastic quote! I know from my brief study of Les Brown that he is big on relationships and I've heard the quote you're talking about.

One of his big questions is asking yourself, who am I around? He got a lot of his lessons from Jim Rohn, and I believe this is one of them.

Thank you for sharing Clint.
