“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared with what lies within us.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

It has been said that the only way we actually grow in life is by constantly pursuing newer, fresher goals and challenges, leaving away the shores of our comfort zone. By routinely putting ourselves into life tests, we immune ourselves from getting into slothful life patterns.  Sticking to a new habit or skill until you are a master is a test of intellectual discipline and power. Each time you successfully acquire a positive habit, you grow in character, mind and spirit. Suffering pain and discomfort while trying to acquire a challenging habit sharpens your mental faculties and forges you towards self-excellence. Acquiring a positive attitude is very important. It may not be everything, but it sure makes the difference!

In our globalized fast paced, social media world, it’s hardly difficult to access information. It comes at you at breakneck speed. Articles, blog posts, status updates, tweets–there’s never a shortage of ideas to consider.

Gaining knowledge obviously isn’t a problem. Applying it, on the other hand, is a lot more challenging, especially when you consider how little time we have throughout our busy days to stop, breathe, and just be.
