9 ANSWERS

No one owes you shit and no one gives a fuck.

Forgive my language but that quote alone is what keep me on my feet at all times. It's what makes me burn the night candle. Why I lose and still keep going.

You see, when you are hurt, you cry and hope someone take pity on you, or the gods will favour you. In as much as all this is possible but they are things that are base on hope and luck. No one actually owes you anything, not the government, not your parent, not your friends or enemies, not even the gods. They all help you in one way or another, but if they don't, will that stop the world from going forward?

And then most people spend time on the ground weeping because they feel people care or gives a fuck about them and their problem. Fine, people do care but they also have their own problem which comes first. It would only be selfish of you if you expect people to care about your problems than theirs, so if you don't do it, no one might do it for you.

If you need it done, do it.

I've a couple of quotes that keep me going whenever I am down but my favourite remains the scripture (Psalm 30:5) that says, trouble may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.

I will do what Queens do, I will Reign..

When I'm down, I remind myself that queens don't back down and they don't settle for less. This has helped me and is still helping me build the type the personality I want to be known for.

Not a quote exactly but God's word in my life.

I HAVE DONE IT BEFORE..I WILL DO IT AGAIN...SAME GOD THEN..SAME GOD NOW.

I have been through a lot in my life and God saw me through those circumstances. My life this moment is a testimony and I am living only by God's grace. Several times he has shown me that he will always be here for me so it's silly of me to get worked out or tensed in situations because God will continuously see me through.

Never give up on anybody.............This quote has really been helpful to me,the only disadvantage is that it could take you time,at some point you may need to be very patient but then keep home alive, people could change at any time,I have seen,you can see them become what you never ever imagined,only time tells.

There is this quote I got from a movie some years ago and since then the quote has stayed with me, it's been of my favorites.

The title of the movie is Akeelah and the Bee, the quote is from an American spiritual teacher by name, Marriane Williamson and it goes thus.

**"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves? 'who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do same."**

Quote: What If I don't give up today?

Honestly, first before I know the sentence above and always remember it I am a lazy person.

I take small things in my life

In the past when I was going to do the assignments at night I thought "Ah, just tomorrow the assignments are collected in the last hour" And, done.

I closed the book, enjoyed online on social media, and the next day I had to do the task in a hurry and sometimes cheat on friends.

Then what about after I have the motto? I got the motto when I watched the video on YouTube. TEDx video

I forgot the name of the speaker, which I remember was an Indonesian pastry chef who worked at Tetsuya (a famous restaurant in Australia). He became one of the women (of 3) Indonesia who worked at Tetsuya.

I remember the sentence which is What If I don't give up today?

From now on when my lazy feelings appear, I immediately remember this sentence.

So when I'm lazy at night doing work, I will immediately think what will happen if I don't give up now?

Starting from that, every time I am lazy I immediately remember the sentence and I am doing it because I will not give up today

Because I don't want to live in remorse

Hopefully useful and have a nice day :)
