“The self is not something that one finds. It is something that one creates.”
~ Thomas Szasz (1920-) American Psychiatrist
You are the artist of your life – the one who shapes your personality, attitude, moral judgment, career path, friendships, etc. From birth, you have everything you need to make something of yourself in life, so there is no need to look for it. Start creating your life today into something beautiful.
“If you cant laugh at Yourself, you give others permission to do it for you.”
If you don’t laugh at yourself when you make a mistake, fail at something, embarrass yourself or lose face, then you will be miserable from all the people laughing at you. Find a reason to laugh at yourself and the world will be a happier place to live in.
“Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they’ve got a second.”
~ William James
Life is indeed a race. In order to finish it, you need to use all the resources from life you can find. You must also run the distance to achieve your goals; just remember to keep going even when you feel tired. Sooner or later you’ll be rewarded with more energy to keep going so you can finish the race called “life.”
