"No single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born."
“God has graced us with life, His love, and a bountiful world full of endless possibilities in which to live. And, He has not only given us the ability to dream about how we want to live our lives but the ability to make those dreams a reality. If you are not moving towards realizing your dreams, the only thing holding you back is you.” – Elmer Laydon
“Don’t get stuck thinking about things the way you always have. Open your mind to new ideas and the direction God might be trying to show you for your life. God will help you make the impossible dream a reality.” – Elmer Laydon
Build this day on a foundation of pleasant thoughts. Never fret at any imperfections that you fear may impede your progress. Remind yourself, as often as necessary, that you have the power to achieve any dream by lifting up your thoughts. You can fly when you decide that you can. Never consider yourself defeated again. Let the vision in your heart be in your life's blueprint. Smile! - Og Mandino
Right before I fall asleep, I close my eyes and envision myself slim, trim, and engaged in an activity that I plan to be great at. Sometimes, this "daydream" will catch on, and it will continue into my actual dreams as I sleep during the night.
