The door to success is labeled “Push”.
Success is achieved by those who didn’t know how to stop trying.
Success comes in rising every time you fall.
Great success is always preceded by great preparation.
There is no failure except in no longer trying.
Where there’s everything to gain if successful, and nothing to lose by trying, then try.
With every adversity, there is the birth of an equal benefit.
It’s human to stub your toe but foolish to let the pain ruin your life.
There is never so tragic a loss as talent left dormant or one grown stale from lack of effort.
Keep your mind on the things you want and off the things you don’t want.
The person who says it can’t be done is liable to be knocked down by someone doing it.
Each person is the architect of his or her fortune.
You tend to become what you think about most of the time.
Leaders are like turtles—they can go forward only when their necks are out.
Remember that even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.
A diamond is a piece of coal that wasn’t satisfied with itself.
Cleaning out my apartment and just realized how many dried flowers I have. Clearly #obsessed.
One of my biggest goals every year is to visit a new country. This year I started 2014 off by visiting Mexico! Previously, I visited Mexico for a short time, as in less than 24 hours, on a bus ride from San Diego to Tijuana. Yes, Tijuana. I was only there long enough to grab a bite to eat, ride a horse on the beach and walk the pier. This time I wanted to go somewhere different and for a longer period of time. At first I was a little nervous to travel to Cancun because of it’s tourist and party reputation but my experience was completely relaxing. We stayed at an All Inclusive resort where the staff treated us like family. They remembered our names everyday and made it a point to make sure we were taken care of the entire time. It was so peaceful that I naturally woke up everyday at sunrise…and I am no morning person.
The cabanas were by far my favorite part of the resort! Large enough for several people and all of their stuff, the cabanas were the perfect place to relax on the beach all day. Luckily, the other guests were respectful enough of other people’s property (You down wit O.P.P?!…) that we were able to leave our towels down while running to the beach or grabbing something to eat without someone taking our spot. Not surprisingly, the cabanas were a super hot commodity. There were only around 6 that were available on a first come first serve basis. If you didn’t make it out there around sunrise to put your towel down forget it! The comfort, shade and cabana boys bringing unlimited drinks made it well worth it to wake up at the crack of dawn.
Right outside of our room was a coconut tree. As the staff was cutting down coconuts I watched from the window as my friend ran down to ask for one! She’s brave…and I thought they were going to say no but they happily cut one open for her! Yummy coconut water.
Somehow the coconut got named and went with us to the beach…everyday. We thought Wilson was fitting seeing as we were on a beach…ya know…the whole Cast Away thing…
