I think the quote, “Don’t be pushed by your problems; be led by your dreams” by Ralph Waldo Emerson gives an amazing perspective on life and how you choose to live it.

Ralph, a man from New England, was one of the most influential poets and philosophers of the 19th century.  There is so much to learn about Ralph Waldo Emerson and his amazing life. A great resource is the Poetry Foundation. 

What do you think of when you read this quotes? I think it says to let your dreams guide you through your problems. Also, let your problems be washed away as you succeed.

When you rise above adversity and stand tall, you won’t ever sink. You are able to create your dreams and are able to shine through the problems.

IWhen I allow myself to be pushed by my problems, all I will see is more problems. Live a positive life and don’t be afraid of your own shortcomings.

Embrace your whole being; the good, the bad and the ugly.  Give yourself the chance to fail so that you can shine bright. If you don’t take chances and go for your desires, you will never achieve the success you are destined to have.

We love quotes and are drawn to ones that make us think and reflect on life and the choices we make in it.
