Steve Maraboli: Life, the Truth, and Being Free
A Better Today Publishing
After over a decade of captivating audiences and readers world-wide, Steve Maraboli re-releases this "Steve 101" style book which is sure to ignite that fire within. The select pieces included in this book span over a decade of Steve's words. Some pieces have been individually published around the world in more than 20 languages. This is a must-read celebration of the empowered mind.
When you do what you love, the seemingly impossible becomes simply challenging, the laborious becomes purposeful resistance, the difficult loses its edge and is trampled by your progress.
I've learned that empowered thinking is a choice - a state of mind. It's the ability to enjoy a rose with no mind of the thorn. It's the ability to celebrate a life even though it has passed. It's seeing the flowers even during a rainstorm.
Sometimes the prison of fear is so powerful there's no need to lock the cell doors. Your fear creates a willingness to self-imprison.
When you're ready to make the change and you don't feel that you have the strength, know that you are connected with the same strength that moves the world; you just have to stop turning your back on it and connect with it.
A wrong turn doesn`t end the journey. If you feel lost, just look at your map and get back on the road. The map will always lead you in the right direction.
It only takes a split second to smile and forget, yet to someone that needed it, it can last a lifetime. We should all smile more often.
How would your life change if your actions did all the talking and all you used your mouth for was to say please and thank you?
Identify the things and people that make you feel unhappy and eliminate them from your life. Nothing good can come from them.
Listen to what others have to say. When you speak, you're only repeating things you already know. When you listen you learn.
Love has no limitations. It cannot be measured. It has no boundaries. Although many have tried, love is indefinable.
Accept yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses, your truths, and know what tools you have to fulfill your purpose.
Have a goal, a destination and a clear map. If you don't know where you are going any road will take you there.
The true dynamic of a successful friendship and relationship is when the respect is mutual and reciprocal.
We will get true and lasting change as soon as we make helping people a way of life instead of a business.
I'm not saying it's wrong to plan for the future. I'm warning not to make today a victim of those plans.
