Something To Ponder ……… (1).


Perhaps, some of us are afraid to dream big dreams simply because we don’t want to fail. The thing is nobody does. But safe living may possibly lead to regrets later in life. 

Everyone of us has a dream deep down inside. However, most people don’t achieve their dreams because they give up too easily or just fall short. Be mindful, things are not always what they seem at first encounter. And, if something is within your apparent reach, it isn’t a dream anymore.

  • Although fate presents the circumstances, how you react depends on your character.
  • Kind words are a creative force, a power that concurs in the building up of all that is good and energy that showers blessings upon the world.
  • Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how to treat other people – your family, friends and coworkers and even strangers you meet along the way.
  • Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
  • Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.
  • Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.
  • Even when you don’t have the power to choose where you come from, you can always choose where to go from there.
  • Just because someone doesn’t love you in the way you want them to, doesn’t mean that they don’t love you with all they’ve got.
  • Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire, which transcends everything.
  • Regretting every moment yesterday will stop you from living any great moment today.
  • Sometimes we are limited more by attitude than by opportunities.

Have a great week ahead. !!!

  2. One of my favourite blog posts ever. You have made so many profound statements. Every single one of them…I’m thankful for the comfort and reassurance they bring. Thank you.

    Oooohhh…Good one Michael…I’ll have to ponder that list…So true…Thank you so much…VK 🙂

  6. I want to post these quotes on my wall. These are things I’ve been thinking about although in a tentative and sort of confused way – feeling a little scared to act on them. You’ve spelled them out in a clear, solid way – something to hold onto for support as we step out and try to accomplish these things. Thank you!

  7. Ponder….one of my favorite words. And your words, Michael, are becoming some of my very favorite ones. Always a pleasure to be able to read your posts. Blessings to you, and you too, have a bountiful week.

  8. Sometimes Michael, we are successful in life, when seen through the eyes of others, not necessarily through our own.

    Indeed, every individual has a dream… a dream to reach a star is not easy as catching confetti in the air. Reaching the unreachable star?! Why not? Tho sometimes hesitations are always there.

  11. Michael says:

  14. Wonderful truths spoken here, brother!
    Peace & grace,

  15. “Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how to treat other people…” This rings especially true – that, an an inner attitude of gratitude – which can be tough at times when life isn’t going the way one wants – but we can always find something to be thankful for.
    After almost sixty years on the planet, most of them with my eyes open, I can say these two things bring about the swiftest and most desirable changes one aspires to. Great post Michael.

    “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than the ones you did do. ” – Yes indeed! I have many things to regret that I had not challenged them 20 years ago.
