Everything is figureoutable - general quotes
No matter what you’re facing, you have what it takes to figure anything out and become the person you’re meant to be.
Never give anyone the power to control your emotions.
Excuses are dream killers. If we allow them, our excuses will keep us locked in a prison of our own making. As the adage goes, if you argue for your limitations, you get to keep them.
Just because someone doesn’t like what you do doesn’t mean no one else will.
You are 100 percent responsible for your life.
Yes, the only person you can control in life is you, and you must take full responsibility for the state of your life. Always and in all ways.
Push yourself. If you don’t strive for two free hours a day, chances are you won’t even get one.
Opportunity cost is no joke. Every choice has a price. Everything you say yes to means you’re saying no to something else. Translation? Each time you pick up your brain-draining gadget and say YES to watching another cat video, you’re saying NOPE to ever reaching your biggest and most important long-term goals.
Go beyond yourself. Think in terms of we, not me.
Find something you are willing to stick with and work for, no matter how long it takes.
Lasting happiness can only come when you take 100 percent responsibility for yourself.
It’s never about having the time, it’s about making the time.
Uncovering, developing, and sharing your gifts—that’s the whole reason you’re here on earth.
What’s crucial to understand is that no matter what happened in your past or what’s happening now, if you’re not at least willing to take full responsibility for your life—which includes your thoughts, feelings, and behavior—you give up the power to change it.
You wouldn’t have the dream if you didn’t already have what it takes to make it happen.
Nothing in life is that complicated. You can do whatever you set your mind to if you just roll up your sleeves, get in there, and do it. Everything is Figureoutable.
Everything you love is despised by someone else.
A person’s opinion is not The Truth. It’s their truth. It’s unwise to waste time and emotional energy over the criticism of folks you don’t know, respect, or serve.
If it’s important enough, I’ll make the time. If not, I’ll make an excuse.
There are two kinds of people in the world: those with reasons and those with results.
Trust that feeling. It’s your life force. Your genius. Your destiny screaming to be realized.
The world needs that special gift that only you have.
The art of eliminating excuses means embracing the fact that your dreams aren’t made or broken by anyone but you.
Human beings are judging machines. The trick is to have a sense of humor about it. Don’t personalize it, dwell on it, or indulge in it.
Ultimately, the measure of our lives is not determined by what we achieve for ourselves; it’s determined by what we share, give, and contribute to others.
Never reply when angry, emotional, or buzzed.
A fall is never final unless you stay on the ground.
Everything is figureoutable quotes about beliefs
While our potential as individuals are unknowable, what we know for sure is that limiting beliefs guarantee limited outcomes.
Long term, your beliefs determine your destiny.
Every belief has a consequence. Long term, your beliefs determine your destiny.
All beliefs are a choice, and choices can be changed.
Beliefs are the hidden scripts that run our lives.
When you change a belief, you change everything.
You always have more power than you think. Your mind is the most extraordinary tool you have to shape your reality.
It’s important to recognize that, whether positive or negative, our environment is one of the most significant sources of our current beliefs.
At this very moment, you can choose to put yourself in either a growth mindset or a fixed mindset. One leads to a life of pain and stagnation. The other to endless growth and fulfillment.
The most powerful words in the universe are the words you say to yourself.
In order to change ourselves, we must first believe we can.
Everything is figureoutable quotes about progress and perfection
Everything worthwhile is hard. Excruciatingly hard.
You never feel ready to do the important things you’re meant to do.
Giving up isn’t the same as moving on.
Progress not perfection is the only way to bridge the gap between your ability and your ambition.
You must disobey the voice in your head that says, I’m not ready yet.
Perfectionism at its core isn’t about high standards. It’s about fear. Fear of failure. Fear of looking stupid, fear of making a mistake, fear of being judged, criticized, and ridiculed. It’s the fear that one simple fact might be true.
Real change is practically invisible as it’s happening.
Turn inevitable self-doubt into productive self-talk.
All progress begins with a brave decision.
Action spawns courage, not the other way around.
Everything is figureoutable quotes about fears
Fear is not the enemy. Waiting to stop feeling afraid is.
Doing the thing is far easier than the terror we inflict upon ourselves by stressing over it in our heads. The fastest way out of our fear is through it.
When you’re stuck in a paralyzing thought loop of indecision, stop thinking and start doing. Make a move, no matter how tiny. Find (or make) a way to do a real-world experiment. Action is the fastest and most direct route to clarity.
Worst-case scenarios are often low-probability events. They’re even less likely to happen if you strategize how to prevent them from happening, and how you’d deal with them if they did.
Action is the antidote to fear. Action metabolizes it. The trick is allowing yourself to feel fear while you take action.
I win or I learn, but I never lose.
Clarity comes from engagement, not thought.
Fear communicates using the only tool she has: the ability to make you feel. When you sense her presence, she’s sounding a compassionate alarm. She’s doing her best to get you to pay attention. This subtle yet important distinction will help you put down your combat gear and, instead, meet your fear with open arms and a smile.
Nine times out of ten, our fear is directive. It’s a signpost, pointing us in the exact direction our soul wants to go.
Fear is your ally. She’s a caring messenger and supportive friend—and she’s always got your back.
