Hello! Here are some quotes I liked.

"Choosing something once is easy. Choosing it repeatedly makes a difference.

Eating healthy once is easy. Eating healthy often is rare. Practicing hard once is common. Doing it every day is rare.

Ordinary choices compound into extraordinary results." Shane Parrish.

"Our highest hopes are often destroyed to prepare us for better things. The failure of the caterpillar is the birth of the butterfly; the passing of the bud is the becoming of the rose; the death or destruction of the seed is the prelude to its resurrection as wheat. It is at night, in the darkest hours, those preceding dawn, that plants grow best, that they most increase in size. May this not be one of Nature’s gentle showings to man of the times when he grows best, of the darkness of failure that is evolving into the sunlight of success. Let us fear only the failure of not living the right as we see it, leaving the results to the guardianship of the Infinite."
William George Jordan.

"Two truths I have observed time and again:

(1) Discipline and consistency create momentum.

(2) Momentum creates motivation."
Sahil Bloom.

"Emotionally Healthy People:

1. Accept & learn from mistakes
2. Let go of grudges & past failures
3. Say "no" when necessary/stand up for themselves
4. Don't allow themselves to get sucked into other people's bullshit & drama
5. Are genuinely happy about the success of others."
Mark Manson.

“Always remember that to argue, and win, is to break down the reality of the person you are arguing against. It is painful to lose your reality, so be kind, even if you are right.”
Haruki Murakami.
