“It either works or it doesn’t. Does this work for me?” for life choices. This one is so simple, your gut will say yes or no in a second. You just have to listen. We often ignore our gut instinct and end up in places we don’t want to be.
“You can’t make everyone happy, you’re not pizza.” for dealing with people. Don’t torment yourself with the opinions of others and go nuts trying to make others happy. They probably don’t even know how to make themselveshappy.
“You can’t boil the ocean.” when you try and do it all. Our expectations for ourselves are usually higher than those others put on us. Be compassionate with yourself and realize all gets done one thing at a time.
“Build your own dreams or someone will hire you to build theirs.” a reminder when making dreams a reality. I’d rather live with a million ‘oh wells’ than one ‘what if?’. Be brave and take chances that most would not. And if someone offers you a piece of their dream, ask yourself why they offered to share in the first place.
