Messages That Reflect Life


I enjoy noting down in my daily journal messages I come across in books, podcasts and inspiring material I follow in my free time daily.

Here is a list of fifteen powerful messages that I came across in the last month. They present a mirror to the reality of our lives. 6, 9 and 13 are my favorites.

  1. Don’t be upset about results you did not get from the work you didn’t do.
  2. Be careful about judging a man’s choices when you don’t fully understand his challenges.
  3. In 20 years you will be more dissapointed by what you didn’t do than what you did.
  4. Hope isn’t naively denying the problem, It’s just relentlessly believing in the existence of the solution.
  5. Make excuses or changes. We always get to choose between the two.
  6. Everyone wants the truth but no one wants to be honest.
  7. Actions prove who someone is, words just prove who someone is pretending to be.
  8. Its funny how nobody notices what you do until you don’t do it.
  9. It is better to be hurt by the truth than being comforted by a lie.
  10. There is a difference between giving up and knowing when you have had enough.
  11. Apologies don’t mean anything if you keep doing what you are sorry for.
  12. Never put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket.
  13. So far you have survived 100% of your worst days
  14. Attract what you expect. Reflect what you desire. Become what you respect and mirror what you admire.
  15. Forget the Mistake and remember the Lesson.
