I. I Am Busy

What can be done instead:

“It’s not enough to be busy, so are the ants. The question is, what are we busy about?”

II. I Don’t Know What Should I Do

Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.

What can be done instead:

“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drowned your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

III. I Cannot Live Without Something/Someone

What can be done instead:

“Time is the best teacher.”

Last Thoughts

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
