10 LIFE-CHANGING QUOTES FROM PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE BY RICK WARREN.
Being successful and fulfilling your lifes purpose are not at all the same thing; You can reach all your personal goals, become a raving success by the worlds standard and still miss your purpose in this life.
"We are products of our past, but we don't have to be prisoners of it."
"The only really happy people are those who have learned how to serve."
"God is not haphazard; he planned it all with great precision."
"Love leaves a legacy. How you treated other people, not your wealth or accomplishments, is the most enduring impact you can leave on earth."
"Resentment always hurts you more than it does the person you resent. While your offender has probably forgotten the offense and gone on with life, you continue to stew in your pain, perpetuating the past. Listen: those who hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment. Your past is past! Nothing will change it. You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go."
"Experience is not what happens to you. It is what you do with what happens to you. Dont waste your pain; use it to help others."
"A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life."
"Life is a gift...
Life is a test...
Life is temporary assignment."
"Character is both developed and revealed by tests, and all of life is a test... You will be tested by major changes, delayed promises, impossible problems, unanswered prayers, undeserved criticism, and even senseless tragedies."
