Monday Motivation: Dare to Be

shine-your-light

“Dare to be…
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine the light.
Where there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can –
At all times, Dare to be!”

– Steve Maraboli [Life, the Truth and Being Free]

Taking Happiness Advantage to Succeed

Happiness

Like a tingling feeling and sensation of
sneezing is what happens when
one finally achieve significant success.

Sighing will erupt from the tip of the toe
Run through the body and discharge
through all orifice in the head.

Some people usually shed tears of joy
Smile will force itself through sobbing
That’s a great sign of victory.

It’s happiness that brings success in life
There’s no need to pursue happiness
Happiness is innate.

Taking happiness advantage brings
about inspiration and motivation
needed to achieve success.
