Welcome back to the challenge. Today’s will be quite a short and sweet post. The topic is my favourite quote.
If you want to read from the beginning of the series, you can find day 1 here.
One quote that I keep coming back to time and again is
Comparison is the thief of joy – Theodore Roosevelt
I even have this as the cover photo on my Fitbit profile. The reason this quote, in particular, means so much to me is that as someone with pretty low self-esteem I always find less than flattering ways to compare myself to others. There’s no better way to make yourself feel like a failure than to compare the beginning of your journey to the end of someone else’s. Over the past few years, I’ve taken a lot of steps toward thinking more positively about myself.
The only person you should compare yourself to is your past self.
There is another man that seemed to produce a sound-bite every time he opened his mouth, and that man is Walter Elias Disney. His quotes all encapsulate the “American Dream”, that with enough hard work and creative vision, you can accomplish anything. Here are just a few:
- If you can dream it, you can do it
- All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them
- The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
- Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, dreams are forever.
So along with the Roosevelt quote, anything by Walt Disney is guaranteed to give me a kick in the behind
