Super Quotes #17 ― The most important conversations, putting your energy into the present, and having fun
The most important conversations (David Goggins), putting your energy into the present (Ryan Holiday), and having fun (Lori Deschene).
“The most important conversations you’ll ever have are the ones you’ll have with yourself.”
― David Goggins, Can't Hurt Me
Self-conversation happens when you talk to yourself inside your head, as we all so frequently do. The nature of those conversations has a strong effect on how you live your life. It influences your self-esteem, decisions, feelings about people, and your mental and physical performance.
Be mindful of those self-conversations to ensure that they’re guiding you in the right direction. Talk to yourself in a way that gives you confidence and mental clarity. Have faith in your decisions, actions, and ability to live a great life.
“The less energy we waste regretting the past or worrying about the future, the more energy we will have for what’s in front of us.”
― Ryan Holiday, Stillness is the Key
Let’s be practical about improving our lives:
Regretting the past doesn’t help you improve, it just makes you feel bad
Worrying about the future doesn’t help you grow, it just makes you feel anxious and in pain
Your life becomes better when you invest more energy into making the present moment great. Never waste that precious energy on regret or worry.
"Never let lack of money interfere with having fun."
— Lori Deschene
Money can unlock many opportunities for having fun… but that doesn’t mean that it’s a requirement for having fun.
There are many opportunities for fun in life that don’t require much money at all:
Chatting about movies with friends or family
Trying to cook a new recipe at home
Taking a different driving route on the way to work
The only thing you need to have fun in your life is the willingness to do it.
