Be Braap~Be Inspired!!! Real Quotes from Real People #11

'Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen'... Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today Ralph Waldo Emerson was born in Boston, 1803. What an incredible man, in fact having looked through his sayings I have discovered that we still use many of them today because they are highly relevant. Ralph clearly had an incredible understanding of the human mind, how we are influenced, the power of positivity and so on. The above quote has been very popular lately so it is clearly extremely inspiring and although impossible to prove, we regard it as a fact.

The second quote I am sharing goes very well with my comment on our Facebook business page today about letting your lion spirit burn... we need to trust and believe in ourselves as we are the best people to do so. Here is the second quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson that encourages us to stay true to ourselves:

'Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories but it take brave men and women to win them.'

It is well worth checking out the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson who wrote some excellent poetry in addition to his other works.
I will leave you with my favourite quote of his, 'Live in the sunshine, swim the sea and drink the wild air'... it simply doesn't get any better than that!
