missalissa All it takes is one. One person to get you. To see your talent. To take a risk on you. To believe in you. This business is all about perception. Nobody knows who you are or what you're about or how extraordinary your talent might be.

missalissa patience. remember, life is a journey. if you got everything you wanted all at once there would be no point to living. enjoy the ride, and in the end youll see these 'setbacks' as giant leaps forward, only you couldnt see the bigger picture in the moment. remain calm, all is within reach; all you have to do is show up everyday. stay true to your path and you will surely find the treasure you seek.

missalissa I want to think again of dangerous and noble things I want to be light and frolicsome I want to be improbable, beautiful and afraid of nothing as though I had wings.

missalissa All the things you thought were true were just your eyes ideas of how you should see one little slice of this gigantic, magical world of ours. Do not be controlled by perception: take control of how you read reality, in all its beauty.

missalissa People aren't either wicked or noble. They're like chef salads with good things and bad things chopped and mixed together in a vinaigrette of confusion and conflict.

missalissa Sometimes you imagine that everything could have been different for you, that if only you had gone right one day when you chose to go left, you would be living a life you could never have anticipated. But at other times you think there was no other way forward--that you were always bound to end up exactly where you have.

missalissa How many of us stop short of success on purpose? How many of us sabotage our own happiness because failure, while miserable, is a fear we're familiar with? Success, however, dreams come true, are a whole new kind of terrifying, an entire new species of responsibilities and disillusions, requiring a new way to think, act and become. Why do we REALLY quit? Because it's hopeless? Or because it's possible.

missalissa If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it is your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. Any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life.

missalissa Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. That surrender, even the smallest act of giving up, stays with me. So when I feel like quitting, I ask myself, which would I rather live with.
