If we could learn to like ourselves, even a little, maybe our cruelties and angers might melt away.

Find your own path

The obstacles you encounter are not preventing you from reaching your dreams. They’re merely blocking one particular path that you mistakenly assume is the only way to reach those dreams.

If you focus on the obstacles, then you give them more power. Instead, focus on your purpose, on your most authentic and fundamental intentions.

The world can trick you into thinking that there’s only one road to your destination. In truth, there are infinite ways to get where you wish to go.

There’s nothing that says you have to succeed in the same way as someone else. In fact, there’s nothing that says you must define success in the same way as someone else.

You are truly one of a kind, with your own unique passions and purposes. And you’re fully capable of traveling your own route to the fulfillment of your dreams.

Don’t be stopped just because the road that everyone else uses has been closed. Find your own path, and if that path is blocked find another, and you will surely reach whatever destination you choose.

— Ralph Marston
