R U ready?

It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.
-Hugh Laurie

Now I have to stick this to my mind.

Sometimes, quitting can be the best option. However, quitting is riskier. It can put you in a tough situation, and into scenarios you hadn't expected. If you're to quit, plan carefully, and examine whether the timing is right. Don't make quitting a habit. You'll need a bit of persistence if you're going to succeed at anything.

14 Things It’s Time You Forgave Yourself For

10. The chances you didn't take

The places you never travelled to. The experiences you didn't have. The person you did not chase after when they decided to walk away. We have to unclasp our palms and let go of every alternate reality where we’re happier, stronger, brighter because of all the things we did differently. Those universes do not exist. But ours does. And it’s okay here, if we open our eyes up and let it be.

2. Courage

You can choose to break the inertia of fear and take action, or you can let the fear win another day. Courage doesn't need to be impulsive. After all, it's likely the fear exists for a reason.

You don't necessarily have to jump into a cold shower to develop your courage. You build courage when you break out of your comfort zone. 

Why Not?

1. Persistence

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan, 'press on' has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race." -Calvin Coolidge
If you want to practice being more persistent, don't look too far in the future. On days you feel like giving up, focus on the immediate moment, and how you can make even just the slightest bit of progress (or fix a setback) by the end of the day.

14 Things It’s Time You Forgave Yourself For

2. The ways in which you fought through pain

The dark paths you shouldn’t have gone down. The crazy things you did in the name of coping that brought about more damage than good. The things you did to keep yourself alive when you didn’t know any better way. The way your survival instinct showed itself when you were too young or helpless to control it doesn’t make you a bad person. It makes you a stronger, fuller person for still being around. For having found your way back to life.
