This week’s typography quote couldn’t be truer – that often, it’s your own pigenholing of yourself that keeps you from change.
It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you are not.”
Said by Psychology of Winning author and motivational speaker Denis Waitley.
Who do you think you are not? And what can you do to think that you ARE?
Have a wonderful start to the week!

“Success is no accident.”
Despite the questionable personal life of the person to whom this quote is attributed (and his immense success and recognition otherwise as being exemplary in his sport)…this quote resonates as a truism across all disciplines.
Success is never by accident, only by years of hard work and dedication. By the time the world sits up and takes notice, success may seem accidental, but you can be certain there has been immense struggle and perseverance behind every success story.
Food for thought.

Each day is an opportunity to improve.
This is an adapted quote from marathon runner John Bingham: “Every day gives you an opportunity to improve.”
Hear, hear. Will you be a better version of yourself in 8 hours, 10 hours, by nightfall? Who do you want to be then? And who do you want to be tomorrow?

Never say never.
Though I’ve heard it many times before, I was surprised to find that this quote is first attributed to Charles Dickens’ Pickwick Papers. (Not Justin Bieber, strangely enough.)
As a creative, you will encounter many roadblocks. You will experience many naysayers along your journey…as well as your own internal voice that talks you down from that ledge of dreams. Don’t rule the possibilities out…and keep dreaming.
