10 - Core Life Skills

The purpose of life is growth, just as the purpose of life for trees and plants is growth. Trees and plants grow automatically and along fixed lines; man can grow as he will. Life , in a sense, is a long succession of choices and decisions. Life is a paradox of smiles and tears. Life is a continuous collection of changes. Life is a lesson we learn day after day. 

William Arthur Ward said, "Real optimism is aware of problems, 
but recognizes the solutions,Knows about difficulties, 
but believes they can be overcome,
Sees the negatives but accentuates the positives,
is exposed to the worst, but expects the best,
has reason to complain, but chooses to smile."

Quotes for reflection

"Every man dies, NOT every man really lives." -William Wallace,
in the movie Brave heart.

"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling,
but in rising every time we fall." - Nelson Mandela.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure."-Nelson Mandela.
