Therese J. Borchard Quotes
Hope you enjoy the following quotes written by Therese J. Borchard :
"You can't sit around and wait for the storm to be over. You have
to learn how to dance in the rain."
"The heights of great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden
flight. But they, while their companions slept, were toiling upwards
in the night."
"Just as important as saying yes is saying no."
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'"
"Just as when you're drinking tea, drinking tea must be the most important
thing in your life. Each act must be carried out in mindfulness.
Each act is a rite, ceremony."
"Moreover, everything in this world of ours is transient, which is somewhat
of a bummer on the good days, but so much consolation on the bad."
"If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking."
"When you confront adversity, which one will you be? The carrot that
starts out strong but wilts under pressure? The egg that becomes
callous and bitter? Or the coffee bean, which makes something useful,
tasty, even beautiful from the boiling water?"
"Because laughter relieves stress, reduces pain, boosts our immune systems,
and helps us to fight viruses and foreign cells. Plus it cultivates
optimism, that sunny and sometimes annoying attitude of life that can do
wonders for your mood, protecting you from negativity, fear and panic."
"You don't have to be training for a marathon to feel the anti-depressant
effects of exercise. Even picking the weeds and watering the flowers
have been shown to boost moods."
"It reminds me that the most important things are sometimes invisible
to the eye: like faith, hope and love."
"Because when you turn your attention to another person, especially
someone who is struggling with the same kind of pain, you forget about
yourself for a split second. And let's face it, on some days that
feel like a miracle."
"You see, if you're not sleeping, your brain doesn't have an opportunity
to do all the stuff it needs to do without the constant interruption of
your thoughts. The brain works night shifts. And when it doesn't
get all the work it needs to do done well, it gets a tad irritable, like
you do when you can't get your work done. And it takes it out on you."
"Quiet time returns us to what is true, good and beautiful."
"According to positive psychologist Martin Seligman, the most important
step we can take to achieve lasting happiness is to identify our signature
strengths and find ways we can use them in meaningful work."
"If you surround yourself with optimists, you will end up more positive
than if you keep company with a bunch of whiners, and that if your friends
eat well, their will power will rub off on you."
"Only in struggling to emerge from a small hole in the cocoon does a butterfly form wings strong enough to fly. As she squeezes out of that tiny space, the liquids inside her body cavity are pushed into the tiny capillaries in the wings, where they are harden. Should you try to help a butterfly by tearing open the cocoon, the poor thing won't sprout wings. Or if she does, they would be too weak to fly."

The next time you feel that things aren't going the way you want them to, see if you can press Pause and focus your mind solely on your original intent.
Self-doubt is fear's best friend. The inner critic reminds you of past failings so you don't get cocky about taking risks. Those who follow through aren't without fear and doubt, but they have learned to shut them out.
Sometimes it takes a lot of courage to assume the power in your own life especially when you've been in the habit of giving it away. But if you let others control key issues, you allow them to direct your energy and destiny too.
