What excites me about the future is the same thing that overwhelms me! So I don't get anxious about the future, because I was raised to believe and accept that nothing stays the same, and the best way to survive is to adapt. I have faith in humanity that society will, over time, make the right decisions and evolve. I believe that we all have freedom to shape our own life and the world around us. We are all dealt a certain deck of cards, but our environment can influence the outcomes. The fact that my environment influences my life so much, and that my environment is in my control, gives me a great sense of empowerment over my health and my life, inspiring me to live a more balanced lifestyle. I don't tend to value-judge, but if we stop dreaming about the future, then tomorrow is much more likely to be the same as today.
One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Spend enough time around success and failure, and you learn a reverence for possibility.
The worst times can be the best if you think with positive energy.
