Sixteen and a half years ago I picked up a paperback book that would help change my entire life. From my diet, exercise regime and the way I treated others in the world, they would all dramatically shift the moment I read Dan Millman’s “Way Of The Peaceful Warrior“.
Right before I turned 21 years of age I was in a very difficult transition period in my life. I had began a new search for internal growth and was reaching out to different mentors and teachers that could help guide me away from a fairly dark world.
I came across an old guy named Tom who had been teaching one of my good friends classical music and mediation for a couple years. The growth I saw in my buddy was tremendous and I was a bit jealous and eager to experience the same. So, I packed up my belongings into a 1984 Chevy conversion van and hit the road to Idaho to learn a new way of life.
Tom told me… “Before you come to Idaho, make sure you read this book “Way Of The Peaceful Warrior”.
I did as I was told, and it excited me even further to make the move to Idaho to begin this inner transformation. The book was incredible and offered me a ton of hope. It made me feel good about myself and my future. And most importantly, it helped me to rid myself of some horrible thought patterns and destructive activities that served me no good purpose.
As I was stumbling around the internet this morning I came across some motivational quotes by Dan Millman and thought I’d repurpose them here on the blog and link to his book as I get the feeling it could possibly help you out as well.
“There are no ordinary moments.”
“The journey is what brings us happiness not the destination.”
“A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does”
“Your fears are not walls, but hurdles. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the conquering of it.”
“Be happy now, without reason – or you never will be at all.”
“There is no path to Happiness. Happiness is the path. There is no path to Love. Love is the path. There is no path to Peace. Peace is the path.”
“Everything you’ll ever need to know is within you; the secrets of the universe are imprinted on the cells of your body.”
“The time is now, the place is here. Stay in the present. You can do nothing to change the past, and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for.”
