Unpleasant experiences are painful but they make a necessary contribution to advanced intellectual development. Without undergoing this kind of experience, no one can be a super achiever. Be grateful for the tough ones they give you power and awareness.

You can change a great many things, and there many things,
especially people, that you can not change. Or you can change,
that’s the easiest. You make a choice every time you Think,
Speak and Feel. Does that choice make you feel good or bad?
And who’s doing it.
Never stop believing in people just because they hurt you. You might be their only connection to the light of change.
Think about those not with you anymore, either because your relationship grew apart or you got hurt, and be that one person who never stops believing in them!
When someone behaves poorly it’s always because they’ve forgotten how powerful they really are, how beautiful life is, and how much they’re loved.
Sometimes saying nothing is more powerful than saying something.
Today, ask yourself, “What’s more effective – speaking or shutting up?”
The one that masters their mouth, masters their spiritual path.
There is a sense of exhilaration that comes from facing head-on the truths and saying, “We will never give up. We will never capitulate. It might take a long time, but we will find a way to prevail.”
We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving and that’s your own self. You can’t change how another person thinks and acts, you can only change how you feel about the way they think and act. As long as we choose to be offended by what someone else does, who feels bad? When we choose to see and understand that the way we feel is entirely up to us, then we can let them do what ever it is that they do and not take it personally. Its up to us, waiting for them to see our side is a lost cause. They are not responsible for our feelings, we are. Want to feel good? then do it don’t use them as an excuse to feel bad? Who’s feeling bad? Change your focus change your life.
Great wines start with stomping on a lot of grapes, and so it goes with the soul. Revealing your greatness requires moments of pain.And since our human nature is to run from it, we must make a contract with ourselves to go through the hurt, no matter what.Today, renegotiate your contract, and commit to going through discomfort in order to become great.Its time to let go and let come,if you want to feel good.
