Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.
Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.
Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.
