What do you think about some of these ideas?

  • Invest in your cup first. Let it overflow. Your surrounding cups (family and friends) will also benefit
  • If you’re 99% there, you’re only 50% there.
  • Iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens their friend. Surround yourself with motivated and inspiring people.
  • If you are scared of the spotlight, shine more light on your stage so there is no spotlight.
  • Darkness is just the absence of light. Be the light.
  • Pursue progress, and not perfection
  • Time is the most precious resource on this planet, make the most of it.
  • Less is more
  • Do less, be more
  • The bigger the base, the higher the mountain
  • The greatest meaning we can take on is the burden of suffering.
  • Meaningless suffering will become meaningful if you take personal responsibility.
  • Those who seek to reorganise the world should start to clean up the disorder that exists in their own room first.
  • Before blaming others, ask yourself if you’re completely exculpatory.
  • Money can’t buy manners, respect, loyalty and love.
  • Life is like a game of golf. The choices and values you make now at school will impact you in your 20s, 30s, 40s, and beyond. Hold your golf club firmly and with purpose.
  • It’s not so much important what we learn, but WHY and HOW we learn.
  • Why is the most important question in life. If you know why, the how, who, what, when, where, who will naturally follow.
  • Attitude always trumps aptitude.
  • Failures are a gift for growth and progress
  • The now is a gift, that’s why they call it the present.
  • Respect your teachers, respect your parents, respect your family, but most importantly: respect yourself.
  • Love and help yourself, so that you can love and help others
  • It’s good to think. But it’s more important to think about how you think.
  • In the changing economy, it is not such much how great you are as an individual, but how well you work in a team
  • Whatever you do in life, do it with pride
  • There are two pains in life: the pain of discipline, or the pain of regret.
  • You are the master of your fate, and the captain of your soul.
  • Our failures and mistakes don’t define us. How we respond to them do.
  • Broaden your horizons
  • When you lie to others, you’re only lying to yourself
  • Your life is like a movie, and you are the director. If you know how your movie ends, you know what key scenes are needed in the middle and the beginning. It doesn’t matter how many takes you try. And… Action!
  • Your life is like a story, and you are the author. Make every chapter, every page, every paragraph, every sentence, and every word count.
  • Pain is temporary, knowledge is lasting, learning is forever
  • Your values are your personalised compass. If you need to make a life decision, refer to your compass.
  • Never blame others for failure. Take responsibility.
  • Study smarter, not harder.
  • Hating is a reflection of your own insecurities.
  • Jealousy is the cousin of failure.
  • Never compare your life with anyone else’s.
  • Growth is relative.
  • By learning about the world, you learn more about yourself
  • Your life is a story, tell it well.
  • There’s no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs. Every accomplishment begins with the decision to try.
  • Every child is different and has their own inner genius. Realise your growth potential.
  • Form the right habits, and the right results will come.
  • Don’t be obsessed with the destination, fall in love with the journey.
  • Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
  • Create your own future.
  • You’re not stressed, you FEEL stress. You’re not angry, you FEEL anger. Don’t let your emotions define who you are.
  • Your history is not your destiny.
  • Serendipity is an anagram for ripe destiny. Unjumble the confusion and surprises that happen every day by having faith that it’s all for a greater purpose- your ripe destiny.
  • The loudest person in the room is usually not the smartest. It’s the quality of words you say, not the quantity.
  • You create positive habits, and positive habits create a better you.
  • It’s not how good you are as an individual, it’s how great you are in a team.
  • Your marks don’t define you. It is you that makes a mark on education, and the real world.
