Mark Marano just experienced realizing Avatar is exactly what I've been looking for my whole life and feeling is what I've attempted to convey photographically!
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind.
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, nor to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.
He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.
Everything that is happening at this moment is a result of the choices you've made in the past.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
There are no accidents... there is only some purpose that we haven't yet understood.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.
The greatest achievements were at first and for a time dreams. The oak sleeps in the acorn.
You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly.
Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.
The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one's destiny to do, and then do it.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing that you think you cannot do.
Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.
Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.
You can have anything you want, if you want it badly enough. You can be anything you want to be, do anything you set out to accomplish if you hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.
People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.
Our greatest glory is not in never failing but in rising up every time we fail
If you knew who walked beside you at all times on this path that you have chosen, you could never experience fear or doubt again.
Mark Marano is grateful for this experience of life he has chosen, for learning the Avatar tools, and for all those who have been teachers in his life! Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
The moment that judgement stops through acceptance of what it is, you are free of the mind. You have made room for love, for joy, for peace.
Don't die with your music still inside you. Listen to your intuitive inner voice and find what passion stirs your soul.
Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
The highest reward for man's toil is not what he gets for it, but what he becomes by it.
Seize the moment of excited curiosity on any subject to solve your doubts; for if you let it pass, the desire may never return, and you may remain in ignorance.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.
The greatest way to gain control is to relinquish control. The greatest level of freedom is a total lack of concern for self.

Mark Marano highly recommends The Eye of the I (by David R. Hawkins)! I experienced the sensation of being more present while reading the first chapter..
