The antidote for fifty enemies is one friend.
Just as a treasure exposed is quickly spent, so also any virtue that becomes famous or well publicized vanishes. Just as wax is quickly melted by fire, so the soul is emptied by praise, and loses firmness of virtue.

I find that most of wake up day, not because we genuinely ‘want’ to, but because we have to. We have to be somewhere, do something, answer to or take care of someone. But when you shift your intention and create a genuine desire – event enthusiasm – for waking up in the morning, your entire life changes.
How we start our day determines how we create our life. Are you snoozing through your morning… snoozing through your life… and snoozing through your unlimited potential… Or are YOU committed to waking up each day with passion, purpose, and a plan so you can create the life you truly want and deserve?
The old saying, “You snooze, you lose,” may have a much deeper meaning than any of us realizes. When you delay waking up until you have to–meaning you wait until the last possible moment to get out of bed and start your day–consider that what you’re actually doing is resisting your life. Every time you hit the snooze button, you’re in a state of resistance to your day, to you life, and to waking up and creating the life you say you want… It’s as if you’re saying, I don’t want to live my life, at least not to the fullest.
Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention
