QUOTES OF THE DAY (To get you motivated!)

Thomas Edison and Light bulb

I have decided to concentrate specifically on the fear of failure for these motivational quotes. Some might say the most crippling emotion in the world is fear. It has the power to keep you from your opportunities, from your dreams, and most importantly from your success. These quotes can be applied to any part of your life that you are trying to move forward in. Learning to overcome fear (specifically of failure) is a lifelong journey, the task is not to learn how NOT to fail, but how to use those failures to the betterment of your goal. I am putting these quotes on the blog in an attempt to encourage you to live a more "natural life." Looking at the overall goal of living a life completely sufficient off of the Earth's natural resources is far too daunting for many to imagine, however, setting every day/week/month goals (i.e. making your own beauty products, cooking meals from scratch, etc.) is a HUGE part of changing your overall perspective of the task at hand. If you can succeed in being appreciative of your "failures" and all of the wisdom they have to offer in this one area of your life, you will hopefully begin to train your way of thinking in every aspect of your life! Enjoy...

"Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently." Henry Ford 

"Failures are divided into two classes - those who thought and never did, and those who did and never thought." John Charles Salak 

"Many of life's failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." Anonymous 

"In order to succeed, you must first be willing to fail."Anonymous

"Yesterday's failures are today's seeds 
That must be diligently planted to be able to abundantly harvest
Tomorrow's success."

It is not failure itself that holds you back;it is the fear of failure that paralyzes you. 
Brian Tracy 

I have not failed.  I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.  ~Thomas Edison
