Here they are:

If we keep waiting for circumstances to get better and everything to fall in place, we will still be at the same place we started. Doing always gives you more confidence. It gets you out of the fear zone and gives you a head start towards your goal. There will always be new things to learn and perfect while you are celebrating the little successes of meeting the smaller goals.

 This is a beautiful realization and a reminder that keeps me going of how me being a seed of change creates a sea of change on everything around me.
