The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. – Helen Keller

One of famous quotes by Helen Keller

“far too many people say “Oh that is beautiful!” far too often. It’s almost automatic. You see someone in a new outfit, and you say it. There is a sunset (or sunrise) with some color on the clouds, and it gets said.

But the point of the quote is to actually feel the beauty. To allow the beauty to merge with you. To allow the beauty to reach deep within you and really make a difference in how you see something, or how you hear it.

It is the difference between hearing a song you like, and hearing one that takes your breath away. It’s the difference between seeing something scrawled by a toddler, and something scrawled by your toddler.

Again, it isn’t the song which is beautiful, it is the emotion, the feeling within. It isn’t the drawing which is beautiful, it is the emotion and the feeling you have within you.”

“Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.” – Swami Sivananda

One of famous quotes by Swami Sivananda

B.G, Author at The Seeds 4 Life said “If we put all of our effort into even the smallest of steps, we will become even stronger than we already are. Small steps are like pennies, they add up if you continue to collect them and use them to your advantage. Would you throw out a penny on purpose? No. Chances are you would continue to save up so that you can put them to use. Taking small steps works in the same way. Each step counts for something and the more steps you take, the closer you’ll get to reaching your life and business goals!”


“Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.” – Walt Whitman

The founder of Seeds 4 Life said you shouldn’t “…let your fears, worries, and stresses be the ones that lead you through life.  It will cause your progress to be frustrating and slow.  Decide to move through life with positivity, faith, and abundance as your guides.  Let the light guide your steps and your fears will…drag behind in the shadows.

Determine if you have any behaviors or habits that are holding you back, if you do, start the process of changing them or letting them go!  You don’t have to allow them to lead you down the wrong path any longer.  Create some new habits that will strengthen your mind, body, and spirit. You have the power to take back control of your life! Start on your quest toward your dreams today.  Resolve to always stay in the light, and force your shadows behind you.”

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’! – Audrey Hepburn

One of famous quotes by Audrey Hepburn

B.G, Author at The Seeds 4 Life said “When things are difficult, it can seem as though success is too far out of reach. However, nothing is impossible.

There was a time when people thought that no one would ever travel to the moon – it happened. There was a time when people wondered if an African-American would ever be President of the United States – it happened. So many things that people thought were impossible, ended up being the opposite.

We have to believe in ourselves. We have to believe that we have the strength to overcome our obstacles and lift the burden of anxiety and doubt. When we say to ourselves “That’s impossible,” we have to change it to, “I’m possible!”


The saying goes that if we set our mind to it, we can do anything. That’s true. If we take the time to give our goals the effort that they deserve, they will stand a chance of becoming real. We are the ones who decide how successful we are!”


“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” – Steve Jobs

Sometimes it takes time to decide what you are passionate about. The sooner you discover what your passions are, the faster you will find job fulfillment. If you want to feel fulfilled in your current job, take on a project that you are passionate about on top of your daily duties.

“Your time has a limit, “so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”


What we think, we become. – Buddha

Our minds guide our entire lives. The thoughts we allow into our brains every day shape our lives, and our future.

Earl Nightingale, a famous American motivational speaker claims that every man is the total of his thoughts, and that he’s where he is in life because that’s where he really wants to be. This type of responsibility is actually the case for all of us. We can change our lives at any time, but the intention must be there, otherwise nothing will happen.

Stefan, owner of Transcend Your Limits said “Everything you do in life and everything you have done” is “…guided by your thoughts. You might not have always been aware of this, and maybe sometimes it could have seemed like something else was in control, an external cause, maybe your parents or your school?”

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us. – Joseph Campbell

One of famous quotes by Joseph Campbell

In order to live the life that is our destiny, we must release fear; step into our personal power and trust that we have support and guidance at all times, in every way. We must understand that the quiet, inner voice that begs for our attention is not that of an immature child, but that of our spirit, our truth – and it deserves our attention.

Although none of us know what is around the corner, having a plan can seem like the best way to avoid pain, discomfort and disappointment. The reality is that we will experience those things no matter what: It is a part of being human.

Isn’t it better to have the pleasure of experience life while walking the path of your destiny, rather than avoiding it?


I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination. – Jimmy Dean

Tomorrow’s world will be different from the world we know today. The people that we know today are not going to be the same people tomorrow, next week, next month or next year. Nor will we be the same tomorrow, next week, next month or next year.

The simple fact of the matter is that change continues to evolve and expand on every level each second throughout our day. Change is like the wind blowing a sail boat through the open ocean. To resist change is to fight against the inevitable and all-powerful forces of life. On the other hand, to harness the power of change will take one on a path of unexpected transformation that can bring many blessings and the potential for abundant opportunities.

The Quickest Path Isn’t Always the Right or Best Path to Take

Most of us have a deep fixation in our minds that there is only one way, one path towards a desired destination. We are so fixed and locked upon this journey that we will rarely accept a different opinion or perspective. We know the path that we must take and we will do whatever it takes to reach that destination no matter what difficulties may lie in our way.

Simply we can’t change the direction of the wind, but we can adjust our sails to reach our destination.
