I will remember that realizing my dreams is just a matter of working towards them and bearing in mind why I might have failed in the past, not to beat myself up but to learn to do something differently. I will keep working to ensure that I am ready for opportunities when they come along.
I agree with you. One of the main things I took away from the book is to actively work towards your goal and don’t just wait for opportunities to appear because if you don’t put in the work, then you won’t be prepared to take advantage of opportunities that may come your way.

What i learned is "it's up to me to live my life in this way or that way with confidence without complaining other people that i become this way."

I appreciated his advice to keep up your effort while advancing towards your goal. You will need time to reach your goal. Take responsibility and keep advancing. His method to do this was also clear. Take responsibility for your own behaviors. Get control of your thinking patterns. Be proactive.

Committing to things instead of just trying. I'll also be more positive instead of just being negative.

After reading this book, I see life as the best teacher and the great thing that has come to stay, despite what surrounds everyone. You just need to keep your heads high. No better life than to the one you have

I follow everything that meditation teaches me. Some of them are that I have to always keep in tune with time and nature. Everything is planned. If something needs to happen, it will happen! Never wait for anything or anyone!

My biggest takeaway is the concept of responsibility, even if that simply comes in the form of controlling my reactions to circumstances. We can all achieve things by working in a direction of accomplishment, bit by bit.

I always question the choices and path i choose to take and what i got from this book that applies to my evryday life is to trust the process and to trust myself, even when the path i'm on seems wrought with unyielding consequences.

I think that the piece of advice that I can apply to my life is that we are not responsible for other people's actions, but we can choose how to respond to everything around us. I think this is very important because sometimes we can blame ourselves for something that other people have done when in reality it really isn't our fault.

To have self confidence on myself and never to blame anyone for my failure, I shall never blame others for their own failures and again to try to learn new things always because life itself is a lesson

It is interesting how the author urges us to go out of our "comfort zone" and venture outside. He warns us not to only consider ideas that "align" with those of ours. It is like saying that if you do not take in something new, then you will never have diversified what you already had in your mind.

The idea of living by intention is really powerful for me. I find it's very easy to live reactively, always responding to events rather than by any kind of plan, and to let time drift by without really thinking about what kind of life I want to be living.

I definitely have taken into my life the lesson of taking responsibility for everything in my life. I have made choices in my life that have gotten me to where I am, and everything that has happened in my life I am responsible for. This, but also the lesson to say no to people when I feel the need to. I really have a problem with that, a big problem, and I have since started working on it. It is definitely very hard!
