Book Quotes: Make it Happen: Surrender Your Fear. Take the Leap. Live On Purpose.

I’ve been hesistant whether to switch back to audiobooks and whether a self help audiobook would work for me. Long story short, I tried it and I’m a convert. I enjoyed listening to Make it Happen by Lara Casey and took a ton of notes along the way.

Quotes:


The beautiful paradox about failure is that failure will get you further than fear. Failure has the potential to guide us to be better. To summon our strength and push us forward with greater determination. You will learn from your failures more than you will ever learn from your successes.

How you spend your time is how you spend your life.

Thank God for his unconditional love and comfort for you, although your lack of acknowledgment.

Don’t just pray for what is logical and possible. Pray for what seems to be impossible.

Whatever you’re going through right now, if it’s humbling you and making you pray… it’s for a good reason.

Wherever your attention is focused, your heart will follow. If you heart is constantly divided, how can what matters take root into rich soil? Your attention is either at one thing or the other.

Commit to daily tending!!! Break each goal into something you can do every day. It will all add up. Build your everyday into making things happen. How will what you do every day build into your annual goals?

You don’t have to put a time limit for your goals. Prioritize quality over quantity.
