23. Remember the HOPE acronym — Hold On, Pain Ends. This should be everybody’s mantra.

26. Don’t worry about uncertainty. If there is uncertainty, then anything is possible.

27. Remember that growing is the best part of life and you cannot grow until one thing ends and another begins.

30. There are a lot of possible beginnings since there are different chapters in your life. However, there is only one way to end your life’s experiences and only you can decide what that is.

31. Think of the end of something like a beginning instead because, in essence, it is.

32. Get rid of the need to have control over everything because you don’t. By letting go of your desire for complete control and concentrating on happiness; instead, you then develop forgiveness, compassion, and numerous other positive qualities.

33. Don’t choose the same beginning over and over again if it didn’t work the first time. Try a new beginning so the ending can be different.

34. Keep in mind that a bad beginning doesn’t necessarily equate to a bad ending. The ending is always up to you.

35. People always leave this world with unfinished business but this doesn’t mean that you have to stop trying. Your goals will change and so will the ending to your story. Having goals and not meeting some of them is infinitely better than having no goals at all.

36. Don’t worry about whether or not things will work out as you want them to. The journey and the adventure are in trying to get there. Even if it doesn’t work out, you’ve gained a lot of excitement and valuable experience in this journey called life.

37. Keep in mind that your goal is to leave a mark on the earth, not a scar. Treat people right and you’ll always feel better about yourself in the end.

38. If you are aiming for the right thing, your passion and excitement about it will keep you working towards the goal. You shouldn’t have to rely on others to motivate you.

40. Remember that you don’t have to be strong day in and day out. You should, however, feel strong as much as possible.

41. Be a person who people will never forget after you’re gone. Aim for the impossible and never give up.

42. You can’t control what happens but you can control how you react to everything that happens. This is what separates you from the quitters.

43. You do not fail if you get knocked down because everyone gets knocked down at some point. You are only a failure if you stay down afterwards.

44. Keep in mind that each new day is a brand-new beginning. Every day is a chance to start all over again.

45. If you get frustrated, think about whether you want to stay right where you are now. If you don’t want to stay where you are, this is the first step to moving forward and continuing on with your dreams.

46. If you think about all of the things in the universe, you’ll quickly realize that none of those things can stop you from fulfilling your dreams. The only thing that can stop you from being successful is you.

47. Not only is each new day a chance to begin anew but every moment is as well. Each minute, each hour, gives us another chance to begin something new and aim for our goals.

48. Whether your next goal is small or huge, it is all going to start with one small step forward. As long as you take that step and keep moving forward, you are very likely to meet your goals and be successful. The first step is sometimes the hardest but it is not impossible.

49. If every end is a new beginning, you have to keep the final goal in your sight at all times. Remember that you are similar to a sandwich and it’s the middle section that counts. But this doesn’t mean that you can forget about what you hope to accomplish by the end.

50. Remember that not everything in life makes sense. Not all poems rhyme. Not all stories have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Make the best of each and every moment even if you have no clue what is going to happen next.

51. Beginnings that have already happened cannot be changed but the same cannot be said for new beginnings that are possible at the start of each new day.

52. Get rid of fear in your life. Fear will stall you. It can also end in weakness and even evil. If you feel fearful, move forward even more forcefully. Act as if you’re not afraid even if that’s how you feel on the inside.

53. Think of moving forward as crossing the monkey bars. If you want to get to the next bar, you have to first let go of the bar you’re currently holding on to.

54. A happy ending is partly dependent on where you decide to stop your story. Don’t end your story too soon or you’ll never meet any of your goals.

55. As with many other things, a new beginning is a balancing act. It takes the right balance of letting go and holding on to be successful.
