Life is messy. Be brave.

Do your thing. Do it every day. Do it ‘unapologetically’. Don’t be discouraged by criticism. You probably already know what they’re going to say. Pay no mind to the fear of failure. It’s far more valuable than success. Take ownership, take chances and have fun. And no matter what, don’t ever stop doing your thing.

Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

You can only grow if you’re willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.

1. I should have …

2. I shouldn’t have …

3. I ought to …

4. I can’t …

5. I wish I’d …

6. I guess I have to …

7. If only I’d …

8. Yes but …

9. I could never …

10. I’m not (good enough/ smart enough/ talented enough/ lucky enough …)

When you’re scared but you still do it anyway, that’s brave.

1. Start the morning with a time of silence so that you feel calm, and are grounded for the day.

2. Set good intentions for yourself. Make sure your automatic thoughts are positive and healthy.

3. Focus on your breathing to relieve anxiety, and create a sense of being strong and in control.

4. Stretch to release any tightness or tension – so you don’t keep carrying the stresses of the day.

5. Set small, realistic and manageable tasks so you don’t start to panic, and feel overwhelmed.

6. Keep your focus on right now – don’t worry about later. Judt do you best to live this moment fruitfully.

7. Before you go to bed, think of 3 things that went right – and end the day with gratitude – then rest, and get some sleep.

What if I told you 10 years from now your life would be exactly the same. Doubt you’d be happy. So why are you afraid of change?

It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to has power over you.

1. Hold your head high, and look others in the eye

2. Smile

3. Stop apologizing

4. Relax and be quick to laugh at yourself (and with – but not at – others!)

5. Dress in a way that conveys self-worth

6. Use good manners (like saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’) as this is actually a mark of self respect

7. Expect other people to believe in you, and to see and appreciate your good qualities.
