Quote #14 – Good things come to those who work their asses off

Have you ever wanted something badly? If yes, what did you do to make it happen?

They say good things come to those who wait, but that’s not necessarily true because if you really want something you can’t wait for it to happen. Also, what’s the fun of waiting when you know it’s possible to get it yourself at your own pace? Instead of waiting, work your ass off and don’t give up until you have what you want!

Since it’s a new year, this can be one of your resolutions! So what are you waiting for? Make it happen!

Quote #13 Every day is a new beginning.

We often think about what might have been and what does that lead us to? It sure does not lead to anything good, because in the end it will only lead to regret. And who wants that? Instead, think of it this way and keep repeating it to yourself when you tend to fall back to the same pattern.

Every day is a new beginning. Stay away from what might have been and look at what can be.

The companies have taken one step forward to giving their employees a desirable  workplace. These companies know that offices are more than just four walls, a bunch of desks, laptops and an instant-coffee machine.

An office should be like your second home because that’s the place where you spend most of your day. It should be a place where you hang out with friends, where you feel motivated and becoming more creative. In other words, a place where you get to be the best you!

Cool offices like these show that the company culture cares for their employees. And who wouldn’t like that?

Life as it is…

There are times when a person reach its lowest point and ask himself: Why is life filled with extreme highs and lows?

When you reach that lowest point it’s normal to think why is this happening to me and/or you automatically start thinking about negative things instead of thinking positively. I can honestly say I’ve been there and sometimes still do when I feel I have hit rock bottom, and I’m sure we all have been there, once or twice.

When I do catch myself thinking this way I change my mindset because I know I won’t gain anything by wishing that things could have turned out differently. I also know that I feel worse about myself. So I pick myself up, put a smile on my face and move forward with what is.

It’s times like this when you should be your best, and how can you be your best when you’re complaining, regretting, worried or dismayed?

Each obstacle is just another step toward getting where you want to be. Learn, adapt, re-commit and get quickly back on track. Embrace each moment as it comes. You cannot change what has already been handed to you but you can absolutely find a positive course of action. When you do that, make the most of them. This will make you feel better and by feeling better you will do better!

Why stop dreaming when you wake up?

There is a saying that goes: ”The only way to make your dreams come true is to wake up”.

We at the Upwalk are all about inspiration and motivation, so our response to that saying is: “Why stop dreaming when you wake up”? Keep dreaming and follow your dreams whether you are awake or asleep.

A friend of mine gave me a good advice about whenever I have to make a big decision. My friend told me to always think about it this way: ”What is the worst thing that could happen if I do this? If the worst case scenario is something you don’t think you could live with, than don’t do it. If you can, than go ahead”. So next time you’re in doubt when making a big decision or if you should follow your dreams, think about it this way, I can assure you it will help. It does for me!

The journey to your dream won’t be easy but as long as you keep your eyes fixed on that distant horizon, you’ll get there. Sooner or later!

Live life and make every moment count!

This post is about lifestyle. It is about experiencing what life has to offer and in doing so, truly living life to the fullest. It’s about constantly bringing more to life… more happiness, energy and pleasure into our own lives and the lives of those around us.

As we only live once, one should live life to the fullest. Whether it is following your dreams no matter how big or small they are, do what you love, make time to enjoy the simple things in life, try new things, find a passion and pursue it or eat great food and spend quality time with good friends. Above all, make every moment count. There are so many ways to live life to the fullest.

By doing so, the most important thing to have in mind is the attitude. It has to be positive because your attitude determines your altitude. This saying refers to flying because the attitude or orientation of the plane determines how high the plane can fly. It is our attitude or the orientation of our thoughts, which determines just how high we can fly! This goes with success in life. This means, if you aim high, even if you don’t reach the moon you’ll end up by the stars.

I’d like to leave you with a quote by Gary Ryan Blair, a goals coach, saying:

“We only live once, but once is enough if we do it right. Live your life with class, dignity, and style so that an exclamation, rather than a question mark, signifies it!”

So what have you got to loose? This is your life. Live for today!
