Project 365: A Catch Up Post!

I’ve been so busy these past few weeks that I have, sadly, neglected my Project 365 😦 To make up for the many  motivation-less days of this year, I’ll be posting some images. They do say that a picture is worth a thousand words.

If that isn’t enough inspiration to get you through the week, here’s a poem by Mariann Williamson that I heard while watching the movie Coach Carter.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear
is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness,
that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?
Actually who are we not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people
won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine as children do.

We were born to make manifest
the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And when we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

Project 365: Day 16

” Don’t let anyone’s perception of you dictate your destiny.”
Written in 2012 by M.R. — Trinidad and Tobago

Project 365: Day 11

Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it. So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.
-Thomas J. Watson

Project 365: Day 5 and 6

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to post something yesterday. I got home and promptly collapsed into bed. So, here’s two inspirational quotes in one. Enjoy!

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.
Samuel Smiles

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

Project 365: Day 4

It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, “Always do what you are afraid to do.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Project 365: Day 3

Go to the people. Learn from them. Live with them. Start with what they know. Build with what they have. The best of leaders when the job is done, when the task is accomplished, the people will say we have done it ourselves.
Lao Tzu
