Timeless Turtle tips...

Besides the tale of the hare and the tortoise that taught us: Slow and steady wins the race.(Aesop (620 BC - 560 BC)), I've been looking for other lessons we can learn from tortoises/turtles. It was nice to find these and to break them out of their "shell":  

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.  
~    Oscar Wilde

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
~Steve Jobs


Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.  ~Judy Garland

When you are living the best version of yourself, 
you inspire others to live the best versions of themselves.
~ Steve Maraboli


Watch the turtle. He only moves forward by sticking his neck out.
~ Lou Gerstner
Take risks: if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise. 
~ Unknown

Life is inherently risky.
There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing. ~Denis Waitley

Don't be afraid to reach toward your dreams. Fear stops you only if you let it. 
Plan carefully for that first essential move- and then make it. ~ Unknown

He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
~ Muhammad Ali

I have 2 take-aways from this set of turtle tips:
Be yourself - you're the only person who can be your best self.

Be willing to take risks and make every attempt to make progress in life.

The most important lesson for us:
You may be deemed "slow," but don't let that stop you from moving forward.
Remember the oldes Tortoise tip: "Slow and steady wins the race."

What are yours? Please share them with us. Happy end of July. God bless
