• What lies within us…

    in Self-Improvement

    For my second weekend motivational post, I want to share a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson…

    “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

    Regardless of what you’ve faced and even overcome in the past, and prepare to encounter in the future, none of this is greater than the powers you hold within. Take the focus off external things and focus on who you have to become because everything else is “tiny” compared to YOU.

    The bible says “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”

    All the best —

    Hi, I'm Jermaine Griggs, founder of this site. We teach people how to express themselves through the language of music. Just as you talk and listen freely, music can be enjoyed and played in the same way... if you know the rules of the "language!" I started this site at 17 years old in August 2000 and more than a decade later, we've helped literally millions of musicians along the way. Enjoy!

    Hey JG, This is a great post.

    Just curious though, did you get the above picture from Mr&Mrs.Smith?

    I think i saw a scene like that with Brad Pitt in it. Those should be his legs.

    Or as the Al says: “The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs.” ;) (sounds a bit kryptic, I know :p)
    Everytime we feel sorrow or fear about the future or past, our true fear is to die. If we find out who we really are, there can be no greater joy in life than that of the moment right now, and everything what happened to us just doesn’t matter anymore. The most powerful force lies within us, not on the outside.
    Great inspiring post, as always!

    @Eresmas: No, I don’t think it’s from Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It’s royalty free from http://www.istockphoto.com. Lol, but good observation.

    @Peter H: So eloquently put! Thanks for your addition.

    @Brian: Lol

    @Margie: Thanks for your regular support.
