Failure is life moving us in a different direction

“You will find find true success and happiness if you have only one goal. There really is only one: to fulfill the highest, most truthful expression of yourself, as a human being.
You want to max out your humanity by using your energy to lift yourself up, your family and the people around you.”

“There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction.”

“The challenge of life is to build a resume that does not simply tell a story about what you want to be, but a story about who you want to be; not a resume that just tells a story about what you want to accomplish, but why; a story that it’s not just a collection of titles and positions, but a story that is really about your purpose. When you inevitably stumble and find yourself stuck in a hole, that is the story that will get you out.”

Oprah Winfrey – Harvard speech – YouTube

“Don’t ask yourself what he world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what he world needs is people who have come alive” – Howard Thurman
