  • Enhance Your Self-Discipline #1

    *I'll no longer be posting motivational quotes weekly because I want to emphasize the importance of relying yourself rather than a temporary feeling of inspiration. Instead I'll be posting quotes as a reminder to enhance your self-discipline, to continually train your mind for the long term benefit of your life. Our habits, especially our mental ones are the key factor to having a happy, successful and fulfilled life.* Enhance Your Self-Discipline: “I don’t believe in motivation, I don’t believe that motivation actually exists and I don’t think that it is something that you can cultivate. Motivation is just an emotional component of inspiration, ....

  • Motivational Quote of the Week: June 18th to the 24th

    Motivational Quote of the Week: “If you wait for everything until you’re sure it’s right, you’ll probably never do much of anything.” -Win Borden One fact we all gotta accept is that there are some experiences we can’t control or avoid. We must learn to adapt and control our reactions to the unpleasantries of life; because the reality is that you’re never gonna feel just right to do things you want to do. Everytime you go about completing your responsibilities, goals or dreams there’ll be an equal amount of good and bad. The sooner you accept the uncomfortable moments in life, the easier it’ll be to achieve what you want. Change ....

  • Motivational Quote of the Week: June 4th to the 10th

    Motivational Quote of the Week: “There is nothing noble being superior to your fellow man. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self.” -Ernest Hemingway The best routine and mindset to have is continually developing and improving yourself into a better version than you were yesterday. Continue this routine long enough in your love/friendship, hobby and work life and it'll turn into a habit. The goal is to formulate mental habits that productively dictate how you behave and approach life. Tackling every life stressor and using it to improve yourself. Using other people as a means to motivate yourself to be better than them can be useful, however it has its ....

    Motivational Quote of the Week: “Complaining is not a strategy. You have to work with the world as you find it, not as you would have it to be.” -Jeff Bezos I've always been fascinated with how the brain works and how its the main factor in controlling our behaviors. I used to think that the habits I possessed were unchangeable. Until I realized through college and experience that all our behaviors start with a mental habit. In which, most of our mental habits grew from our childhood and upbringing. Upon this realization and awareness I was able to tackle the mental habits I knew were unhealthy for me. One of the worst mental habits to have is complaining. When you ....

    Motivational Quote of the Week: "Watch your thoughts they become words. Watch your words they become actions. Watch your actions they become habits. Watch your actions they become habits. Watch your habits they become character. Watch your character it becomes your destiny.” -Lao Tzu We're creatures of habit and the way we think, speak, act and go throughout our day create the character that'll determine our destiny. We must be aware of how we think and act, not allowing old habits that might've been formed while we were young to run our lives. All of us might carry a habit or two we might not be proud of, however the amazing thing about habits is they can be changed. ....

    Motivational Quote of the Week: "A lesson without pain is meaningless. That’s because no one can gain without sacrificing something. But by enduring that pain and overcoming it, you shall obtain a powerful, unmatched heart.” -Edward Elric Life without pain is an impossibility and must be accepted in a productive manner. No worthwhile goal can be achieved without experiencing a certain level of discomfort. The reward we get internally from achieving a goal partially comes from the sacrifices we made to achieve them. As well, the pain we endure creates a stronger mental and physical fortitude for future endeavors. The more discomfort we’re willing to take, the ....

  • Motivational Quote of the Week: April 30th to May 5th

    Motivational Quote of the Week:
    "We all must suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret." -Unknown
    Pain is an unavoidable aspect of our lives, but we have the ability to choose the type of pain we want to experience. A lot of times we innately want to avoid pain because our brains our wired to keep us safe. However, pain is an essential part in improving ourselves. The easiest example is the pain we feel when we workout and develop more strength. Building strength is impossible to happen unless we are willing to sacrifice pain for it. You must make a conscious effort in choosing pain/stress that'll benefit you in the short or long term. Realize there ....
