Dignity does not consist in possessing honors, but in deserving them.

Genuine thoughtfulness

You are worthy, deserving, intelligent, skillful and have unique value to offer. Even so, the world does not revolve around you.

There are a lot of other people in this world. The more considerate you are of those people, even the ones who don’t seem to deserve it, the better off you yourself will be.

You are worthy of the very best life has to offer. And one of the most empowering thoughts to keep in mind is that life does not owe anything to you.

Your life is filled with great possibilities. It is by acting with gratitude, humility and genuine thoughtfulness that you will fulfill the best of those possibilities.

At times, other people will anger you, frustrate you, lie to you and disappoint you. Love them anyway, for ultimately that is in your best interest.

It is easy to be understanding of those who agree with you, and immensely powerful to be understanding of those who don’t. Live with understanding and genuine thoughtfulness, no matter what, and enjoy the rewards that come from making a real and positive difference.
