DESIGN YOU Quote of the Day: Sting

“You have to be yourself. Be very honest about who and what you are. And if people still like or love you, that’s great. If they don’t, that’s their problem. Be yourself, no matter what they say. ” Sting

All the well-intentioned voices in your head-parents, teachers, coaches, employers, colleagues, friends, significant others-should not be louder than your own voice. Listen to your heart for that’s where you’ll hear the most important message about where your life should be headed.

DESIGN YOU Quote of the Day

 

“Basically, I feel fortunate to have realized what the goal is in life. There’s no point in dying having gone through your life without knowing who you are, what you are, or what the purpose of life is. And that’s all it is.”  George Harrison

 

 

 

The single greatest commitment we have is to our self; to find, free and follow who we are and what it is we are meant to do with our life.

DESIGN YOU Quote of the Day: Bono

“To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.” Bono

 

Live your dream, even if it makes you different from everyone else. Because YOU ARE! And, that’s the secret sauce of living your destiny. You have something to give to you and to the world that no one else can.

U2 and You, Too

U2 have released 13 studio albums and are one of the world’s best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 170 million records worldwide.They have won 22 Grammy Awards and in 2005, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility. Rolling Stone ranked U2 at number 22 on its list of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time.” Throughout their career, as a band and as individuals, they have campaigned for human rights and philanthropic causes, including Amnesty International, Jubilee 2000, the ONE/DATA campaigns, Product Red, War Child, and Music Rising.

On May 10th, 1979 they received the following letter from RSO Records: ” Thank you for submitting your tape of ‘U2’ to RSO. We have listened with careful consideration, but feel it is not suitable for us at present.”

Be a visionary about your own future and always believe in yourself. Never take “no” for an answer when it comes to fulfilling your destiny.
