One chance. One shot.

That's all we want. Just one time.

One opportunity. That's all we'll Get.

If we don't grab onto ourselves, time will pass us by.

We take life for granted, always believing we'll be given another chance.

Life isn't about the opportunities given, it's about the opportunities taken.

It's not that we won't get multiple opportunities with similar things,

We only get one chance with that one thing we most want in life.

One thing. One person. One change. One job. One life.

It's our job not to mess it up.

Everyday we are faced with multiple decision and opportunities.

To do or not to do. To Be, or not to be.

They say, "If it's meant to be, it is up to me."

There's no such thing as coincidence, only planned coincidence.

Things happen for a reason beyond our understanding.

And instead of evaluating and over-thinking, we should just go for it.

Shoot for the skies and let our loved ones be our parachute. Just in case.

We don't regret the things we do, we regret the roads not taken.

Don't live in a life of what if's, curious on what we could've been.

That's fantasy, and we didn't take that path. Too late now.

Maybe it was for the better. Maybe it was for the worse.

All I know is, it's what you don't have now.

It's what you do with what you got that makes you, it's what you don't got that breaks you.

Don't dwell on the things you don't have, love things you do have.

Don't complain on the things you did, complain on the things you didn't do.

Actually, don't complain at all.

Learn from your decisions. Know that they weren't right, nor were they wrong.

We choose things in life for various reasons.

Whether it was in the moment, the feeling, the time, or what fit.

It's done with. You can't control it, I can't control it.

We can't go back in time.

Learn from your decisions. Learn from other people's decisions.

We won't live long enough to make all the decisions in the world.

We won't live long enough to make all the mistakes in the world.

Think before you speak. Think before you act.

Actions speak louder than words.

Silence speaks louder thoughts.

Actions always have consequences.

The size of consequences matters on the size of your brain.

Think about others, Care for close ones, Love the best ones.

Measure the pros and cons if it effects others than yourself.

It's not always about you Bro.

Sacrifice is necessary.

Your happiness is the measure of not just your happiness but the ones around you.

If you are happy, she ain't happy. "We ain't happy."

Life isn't measured by the happiness of one individual, but by the party of individuals.

Life shouldn't be measured by just your happiness.

Selfish, greed, power, authority. All will kill the world.

All will kill your world, and if we let it, will kill our world.

Life is a gift. Life is a beauty. Life is one of a kind.

Balance between yourself and others.

There's a time to be selfish, and there's a time to be self-less.

Know the difference, and know when it's right.

One choice, one shot, one opportunity.

One choice can make you.

One choice can break you.

It's all we'll get. Make the most of it.

Understand, things will not always go your way.

If it's not meant to be, it won't be.

Things happen for a reason beyond anyone's understanding.

We don't regret the things we did, we regret the things we didn't do.

Do your best, try your hardest, and let fate take over.

At the end of the day, know you did all you could.

You did the best you could do.

Leave no room for what if.

When the job is done, walk away.

With your held up high, go ahead and touch the sky.

Sky's the limit, but it's how big you make your rocket.
