ItIt took me a long time not to
judge myself through someone else's eyes.
It's not who you are that holds you back,
it's who you think you're not.
I quit being afraid when my first venture failed
and the sky didn't fall down.
Allen H. Neuharth
Make the most of yourself,
for that is all there is of you.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you hear a voice within you saying,
'You are not a painter,' then by all means paint
and that voice will be silenced.
Vincent Van Gogh
He who would be useful, strong,
and happy must
cease to be a passive receptacle for the negative, beggarly,
and impure streams of thought;
and as a wise householder commands his servants and invites his guests,
so must he learn to command his desires and to say, with authority,
what thoughts he shall admit into the mansion of his soul.
We all have voices in our heads which
talks to us on an almost constant basis.
Our voices give us messages continually,
and what they say to us affects us.
Self-suggestion makes you master of yourself.
W. Clement Stone
