When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you king for a day
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say.
For it isn’t your father, or mother, or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.
He’s the fellow to please – never mind all the rest
For he’s with you, clear to the end
And you’ve passed your most difficult, dangerous test
If the man in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass
But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.

Juntos, podemos fazer muito.
Sozinhos, pouco podemos fazer.
Crescimento interior é a única garantia que tens de que o amanha será melhor…
O que estás a fazer para te melhorares a ti próprio?
99% das pessoas, hoje, assumem, simplesmente assumem, de que de alguma forma a vida para eles irá melhorar!
Muito triste, muito triste!
Deixem-me dizer-te uma verdade sobre a assunção…
A assunção é uma das maiores decepções da vida…
Mostra-me uma pessoa que assume e eu mostro-te uma pessoa que todos os dias se decepciona!
Out of the night that covers me
Black as the pit from pole to pole.
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance,
I have not cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of fate,
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the shadow of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me, unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
By William Ernest Henley
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine as children do.
It’s not just in some of us, it is in everyone.
And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
by Marianne Williamson
