Famous Quote Friday, In Memory Of Nelson Mandela

Normally on Fridays I will pick a famous quote and talk about it, today I would like to change it up. In honor of the passing of a great man that has accomplished so much in his time and inspired so many, I would like to share a few things about Nelson Mandela. I need not say much myself. His quotes, his videos, his very image speaks for so much inspiration. I dream to carry an impact that this man has made on the world, to my end of days as he has. I seem so small next to what this man is about, but in time I shall inspire many more.


“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”-Nelson Mandela.
Once a fighter always a fighter! Conquer your fears, and learn from them.


“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”-Nelson Mandela.
Respect and be grateful for the freedoms you have. Make a difference not only to yourself but to those around you and the world you live in.


“It always seems impossible till it’s done” -Nelson Mandela.
This is so true, when things get hard they seem impossible right up till the time you figure it out. Don’t ever give up.


Nelson Mandela may be prepared to die but is our world prepared to lose him?

Rest in peace Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. You will never be forgotten, you will continue to inspire those that never even had the chance to live when you did.

Ashton Kutcher FQF

“The sexiest thing in the world is being really smart……being thoughtful, and being generous. Everything else is crap”
-Chris Ashton Kutcher

 

Take everything you know about Ashton (his first name is actually Chris) on screen and take that out of context when you read this quote! Now I don’t follow celebrities and frankly I don’t really listen to things they say. My friend Amy showed me this video of a speech that Ashton gave at the Teen Choice Awards and it blew my mind. The quote above is what stuck out the most for me. Society has really done nothing to promote intelligence as attractive. If you think about it you are attracted to the things people do and say, so we are naturally attracted to intelligence. Guys, you can have your makeup covered gals with their designer revealing clothes, I search from within for my attraction. I am not at all saying getting dressed up how you want and putting make up on is a bad thing. I just prefer natural beauty and beauty from within. I mean I’ll never turn away from a girl with a beautiful smile, that is my weakness. Ok, before I get off track, intelligence is so important, I am not talking book smarts I am talking about life smarts. Good communication is something I coin as smart and attractive. Confidence is smart. Knowing what you are doing where you are going and the desire to continue to learn everyday from all parts of your life is what I believe Ashton is referring too. In an ever changing world, continued learning is very attractive.

 

Being thoughtful is really about putting yourself in other peoples shoes, respecting and understanding what is going on. Showing some compassion for what is happening in other peoples lives outside your own. Being generous has many definitions of course but I believe being generous is simply sharing what you have with others. It could be money, coffee, words of wisdom, new knowledge, or anything!

 

You can hold a life style to always want to learn more, to care about those around you and in your life, and selflessly give people all you can from your life and that is simply the most sexy anyone can be. Looks do not go farther than caching your eye, it is everything else that captures your heart!

 

It is important to always be yourself. Not everyone will agree with you but at least you can show some thoughtful understanding for their views. Have a great weekend everyone.

 

Here is the video I was talking about.

Tony Robbins FQF

“The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results.”
Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins is a Life Coach and Motivational Speaker. Jim Rohn was Tony’s Mentor. Tony began his career promoting speech events for Jim, who is one of the greatest speakers of all time. Tony Robbins seems to be stepping up to be one of the most influence speakers of our time. Some words that Tony took away from Jim Rohn who has passed away recently: “Happiness and success in life are not the result of what we have, but rather of how we live. What we do with the things we have makes the biggest difference in the quality of life.” Talking about this quote is a whole other post! 😛

 

Both Tony and Jim are big influences to me. So before I get side tracked with all this awesomeness here we go with the man of the day, Tony Robbins.

 

When you eat better and exercise, you increase your energy levels. You physically feel better, therefore you are more productive with great things. This works the same way with a positive mind. The more you think positive the better you will feel. When you feel better or happier the easier it will be to combat the new negatives and challenges that come into your life. If you want any worthwhile results in your life you need to take care of both your body and your mind. YOU NEED TO TAKE CARE OF YOU! If you love your body and yourself, over time more great things will certainly happen. You can begin to find what you are really good at and keep getting better. If you already know what you are awesome at, it is an unwritten rule that there is always room for improvement. When you keep moving forward you may even amaze yourself.

 

Try to amaze yourself this weekend.
