1. Only when sleeping do we make no MISTAKES. Mistakes are the privilege of the active person, who can start over and put things right.
2. Life is huge, more expansive than we can feel or imagine. Even in my deepest meditation or moments of profound awareness, I can only connect to a fraction of all that is alive.
3. I think the word create is synomous with thrive. Alive is just a state of being, thrive is an intentional choice. I will think beyond myself, I will conceive something new. I will not fear. I will be me. I will thrive.
4. I go forth alone, and stand as ten thousand. I think of all who’ve come before me and had to endure trials that would level most of us in our urban comfort zones, and I realize I’m not the first person to face big challenges. This has been done before. I can do it again, maybe even better.
So, have you ever read a quote and thought "I could have said that, that’s how I feel"
We’re going to play a little game, see how you do and then take my "I said that" challenge.
Match the above quotes to the person who spoke them.
B. Stacy Julian
C. Ingvar Kamprad [founder of IKEA]
D. Maya Angelou
Post your answer as a comment (no googling allowed!) and let’s see if somone can get all four quotes correctly attributed. The goal of course is NOT to compare myself to any of these amazing people, but rather to have a little FUN and lead us to part two of the "quote me" challenge, which involves having the confidence to say something you believe and share it with the world (more on that part coming soon)
p.s. there are prizes involved!!
p.p.s I’ve reposted most of the comments from before. If I missed you, I am terribly sorry — please post your answers again!!
