A woman makes her own social science experiment. First, while very plain looking, she asked for free cake, and free taxi rides. She was rejected on every request but once. Then she got fully made up with heels, make up, and a revealing dress. She basically has everything thrown at her for free.
1. As long as you are alive, anything is possible.
The only valid excuse you have to give up is if you are dead. As long as you are alive (and healthy and free) you have the choice to keep trying until you finally succeed. 2. Be realistic.
The chance of mastering something the first time you do it is almost non-existent. Everything takes time to learn and you will make mistakes. Learn from them. 3. Michael Jordan
Arguably the best basketball player of all time. He attributes his success to all his failures. He just never gave up even when he knew he had missed over 300 shots and had missed the winning shot of the game many times. Every time he got knocked down he got back up again. 4. Lance Armstrong
Lance was diagnosed with serious cancer that had spread throughout his entire body. He had cancer cells the size of golf balls in his lungs. Despite all odds he overcame the cancer and set out to win the Tour de France 6 consecutive years in a row. 5. Muhammad Ali

“Life is all about finding out who you really are. First of all, know that you’re not alone.
I don’t think there’s a person on this planet who has not, at one point or another, worn a mask to protect who they really are from a potentially difficult experience.
The pressure of believing you’re the only one with this problem is half of what makes it seem so impossible to fix. The second step is figuring out what you’re so afraid of by revealing who you really are.
It isn’t that you’re wearing a mask all the time, its that you’re putting it on in attempt to keep your therapist out. What you need to understand is that by letting that person in, they can get to the core of whatever else is bothering you.

1. The only person that can ever truly make you happy is yourself. Stop depending on everyone else. 2. People lie, stuff happens. Don’t take it too personally. 3. Want people to think you’re amazing? Start believing you are, and then they will too. 4. Smiling is the ultimate anti-depressant. Smile and laugh out loud, it doesn’t look stupid, I promise. 5. The world is never just black and white, right or wrong, one way or another. Try and see things from as many points of view as possible. 6. "Let everything happen to you Beauty and terror Just keep going No feeling is final" — Rainer Maria Rilke 7. Have empathy. 8. Gossip, problems of the past, events you cannot control, negative thoughts and negative people; time spent on these is time poorly wasted. 9. When you're jealous or find yourself filled with hate for someone/something, stop. The only person its hurting is you. 10. Although the newest, most expensive material things may make you feel as if you’re a better person, the…
These questions have no right or wrong answers.
Because sometimes asking the right questions is the answer. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?Which is worse, failing or never trying?If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distas…
