2. “If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot paint,” then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” – Vincent van Gogh
Never let yourself or anyone else say that you cannot do something. You alone determine the limitations that you set upon yourself.
If you want to do something, just do it. Get rid of negative friends and destroy your inner critic that tells you that you cannot do something. You are a genius, you can do anything you want to do.
3. “Fall seven times, stand up eight!” – Japanese Proverb
Life is about failing and learning from your mistakes. If you want a truly happy and successful life, you have to be willing to stand up and never give up. Truly successful people are positive and they know that each failure gets them closer to their goals.
Failures are nothing but mere stepping stones to success.
