DMX

“In every situation, you can get something out of it if you’re strong enough emotionally to look past the fact you do have the right to be hurt…but you know what, let me put my hurt aside for a minute and see what I can get from the situation.” -DMX

[SIDEBAR: We go through challenges for a myriad of reasons. If we’re fortunate, we learn what those reasons are and absorb the collateral lessons. That is how we grow, and how we are placed in the right places at the right times.]

Will Smith

“The question isn’t, ‘Can you handle the situation?’ The question is, ‘Can you handle your mind?’ Can you handle the thoughts and the emotions that are trying to poison your progress?

HMLS New Yorker Inspirational Quote

HMLS New Yorker

“Be thankful for the defeat which men call failure, because if you can survive it and keep on trying it gives you a chance to prove your ability to rise to the heights of achievement in your chosen field of endeavor.

No one has the right to brand you as a failure except yourself.

If, in a moment of despair, you should feel inclined to brand yourself as a failure, just remember those words of the wealthy philosopher, Croesus, who was adviser to Cyrus, king of the Persians:

‘I am reminded, O king, and take this lesson to heart, that there is a wheel on which the affairs of men revolve and its mechanism is such that it prevents any man from being always fortunate.’” -Napoleon Hill
