Sometimes you come at a point where things seem unclear. Sometimes, hearing the right words can point you in the right direction and clear things out a little. Below is a collection of HLO quotes to help you gain some perspective on life, especially when times get tough.
“During hard times it is always wise to lean on someone than be alone and let yourself fall”
First of all, remind yourself of the people you have in your life. There may be stress piling over you now, but what better time could there be to meet up a friend and chat over some coffee about how’ everything’s going? Talking to other people gives you the understanding that you are not the only one fretting over deadlines, events, appointments or life.
“Always keep your head up, because if it’s down you won’t be able to see the blessings that have been placed in your life”
Every so often we become absorbed in the things that occupy us, always having our head buried in one work or another that we forget to see life in a more holistic way. If nothing is working out for you right now, take a step back and remind yourself of all the times it did work out, all the little successes you’ve had, all the little things that bring you happiness. This gratitude will bring back the spirit in you.
“Don’t let the world get you to undervalue what you are and overvalue what you are not”
If you feel like you’re not being recognised for who you are, then don’t roll with it. Do something that will paint a picture of yourself the way you want others to see you. Set your own standards and show the world what you are, instead of allowing the world to define your worth.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you someone you are not is the greatest accomplishment you could attain”
Are you being yourself? Or are you blindly following the laws of conformity? If you’re not acting yourself then let this be your wake up call. Find a way to express yourself; it will be the most liberating feeling. And if you are being yourself, then give yourself credit for it, and hold onto that originality.
“To believe in you when no one believes in you is to start your rise to genius. Every master was a beginner, every pro once an amateur. Just believe in your dream + talent. Then start”
We all have to start from somewhere small, so don’t beat yourself up for not reaching success sooner. In this early stage, it is crucial to have belief in your own abilities and talents. Those will be the things that will lead to your success, and once you’re able to believe in yourself, others will find it easier to believe in you, too.
“Without passion, every obstacle that comes in your life will cause inescapable depression. But when you find passion, every obstacle will become another exciting challenge that you can look forward to conquering”
If you’re finding it difficult to get on with it, set some time aside to revive your reason for starting that project. When you find passion, you won’t have to push yourself to meet your goals anymore. And when it comes to facing challenges, instead of raising anxiety it will raise excitement in you. At the end, working on something that is driven by passion will be more colourful and fruitful.
“Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up. With goals so strong that obstacles, failure and loss only act as motivation”
Repeat it to yourself, the motive of your dream, the cause that started it; when you’re down, you’d be bound to lose sight of this, so keep reminding yourself of it and it will keep you going. Through all the adversities you may face in your path to success, if you keep repeating to yourself the motive behind it all, you’ll achieve it eventually, one day, without a doubt.
“If you don’t sacrifice for what you want, what you want becomes the sacrifice”
The road to success is never a smooth one. You’ll find times where you’ll need to let go of one thing to make room for another. There is an important lesson to learn in this, because it teaches you to prioritise and set your standard. Would you hold onto one thing forever or would you want to feel and experience an array of things?
“A man’s intelligence is not measured by how they appear to be but the depth of knowledge they exercise in their actions”
Ultimately, what brings you closer to success isn’t all the planning and strategising, but actually taking steps and actions towards your goal. Without action, you’d be stuck in one place and never move forward. So keep this quote at the back of your mind when you sit down to write your goals for the day. Do you actions do your intelligence justice?
“Everyone in this world you come across faces a silent battle in their life. Respect all and be kind to everyone”
We can get self-inclined when we don’t feel the best. So much so that we forget other people may feel the same way. Allow yourself to become more compassionate by reciting these words, that everyone has their own silent battles that only they know of. Acknowledge their strength and pay them respect, and in return you will get the same.
