Mind Power Me – Maya Angelou

Be ready to go through change

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”

Gratitude and Faith… Open doors

“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.”

Believe in yourself

“If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.”

Stand up straight

“Stand up straight and realize who you are, that you tower over your circumstances. You are a child of God. Stand up straight.”

Identify your purpose

“I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life”.”

Enjoy the present moment

“I can be changed by what happens to me, but I refuse to be reduced by it.”

Know your worth

“When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.”

Be Happy

“Some decide that happiness and glee are the same thing, they are not. When we choose happiness we accept the responsibility to lighten the load of someone else and to be a light on the path of another who may be walking in darkness.”

Be present

“If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present… gratefully.”

Be a role model

“Each of us, famous or infamous, is a role model for somebody, and if we aren’t, we should behave as though we are – cheerful, kind, loving, courteous. Because you can be sure someone is watching and taking deliberate and diligent notes.”
