You’ll never change your life until you change something that you do daily. The secret to your success is found in your daily routine.
John C. Maxwell
In every moment of life you have a choice; to live the life of spiritual practice, or retreat into comfort and security.
Mastery is practice.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.
Leonardo Da Vinci
Worrying is a misuse of the imagination.
The important thing is this: To be ready in every moment to sacrifice who we are for who we could become.
Charles Du Bos
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
It is impossible for anyone to begin to learn what he thinks he already knows.
Epictetus (Greek philosopher)
This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.
Alan W. Watts, Philosopher
Life is a perpetual instruction in cause and effect.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Each one of you is perfect as you are. And you all could use a little bit of improvement.
Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Master
You don’t have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things – to compete. You can just be an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals.
Sir Edmund Hillary, first man to reach the top of Mount Everest
You cannot understand a system unless you change it.
Dr. Otto Scharmer
No person has the power to have everything they want, but it is in their power not to want what they don’t have, and to cheerfully put to good use what they do have.
Be the change you wish to see.
If anyone can refute me—show me I’m making a mistake or looking at things from the wrong perspective—I’ll gladly change. It’s the truth I’m after, and the truth never harmed anyone.
An experiment is a question which science poses to Nature, and a measurement is the recording of Nature’s answer.
The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.
Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t going away.
First, say to yourself what you would be; then do what you have to do.
In all activities of life, the secret of efficiency lies in an ability to combine two seemingly incompatible states: a state of maximum activity and a state of maximum relaxation.
The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
Viktor E. Frankl in “Man’s Search For Meaning”
In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.
Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Master
What is the hardest thing of all? That which seems easiest for your eyes to see. That which lies before your eyes.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking.
The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.
We don’t see things as they are; we see them as we are.
Stuckness shouldn’t be avoided. It’s the psychic predecessor of all real understanding.
Robert M. Pirsig, from “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance”
The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
That’s essentially what Zen practice is about: functioning from moment to moment.
Charlotte Joko Beck, Zen Master
