"This is how to be successful.

Forget the money. Forget the likes, forget the beautifully decorated house in the countryside. Throw your life out of the window and start again. Because you only get one youth, one life, one chance at it all. There is space next to me for you in the grassy fields filled with gold, and I know this, because when I lie there as the sun is going down, no one is next to me. I always wonder where everyone is at 3am and the stars are white on an ocean of wonder.

But maybe they're too busy being successful."

 

Rosie Hardy, photographer, London

 

 

"Do stuff. be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration's shove or society's kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It's all about paying attention. attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. stay eager."


Tessa Barton, musician and photographer, Utah

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think say or do. It is more important than appearance , giftedness , or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home. The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. WE cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is plan on the one thing we have, and that is our attitude…I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how i react to it. And so it is with you…we are in charge of our attitudes."
