YEAR END REFLECTIONS QUOTES TO MAKE YOU THINK

Here are a few quotes that’ll make you change your thinking–just a little bit.  And that little bit might be enough to let in the idea that’ll make the difference for you.

There is only one way to avoid criticism:  do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.  ~Aristotle

What this is telling us is that no matter what we do or don’t do, there’s always someone who will find fault with it, tell us they’ve already done it, that someone else is doing it better…etc..  So don’t worry about others.  Keep your mind and actions focused on what your heart and soul are guiding you to do.

UPDATE:

Aristotle is still right:   no matter what you do or don’t do, someone will criticize you and gripe about it. You may as well live your passions, pursue your dreams, and craft your soul-prospering life!

 

Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture your heart.  ~Ancient Indian Proverb

There’s all sorts of flashy, sparkly things that capture our attention.  Oftentimes we think we ought to go after these because everyone else is.  But our eyes can sometimes mislead us so it’s important to take what our eyes see and run it through the wisdom of our heart and soul.  If it captures them, then we can proceed.  If not, then we should let it go and continue looking for that which thrills our heart and soul!

UPDATE:

Our world is noisy and brash; there’s always something flashy to capture your attention. The things that matter, though, are the ones that capture your heart and soul. THOSE are the things to pursue because they are resonating with the Still Small Voice within. Go for it!

 

Let me know what you think of these–if they’ve resonated with you.  Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.  Thanks!

UPDATE:

Keep these thoughts–or other thoughts that are favorites of yours–within reach. Refer to them often and let their wisdom and their power infuse you and give you the energy to take the next step. 

You can do it! I believe in you! 

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
