I wanted to share several powerful quotes and inspiring videos that I thought you'd enjoy!
The Power of Koi Fish
Learn more about why I chose Koi Consulting!
“In a pond, Koi can reach lengths of eighteen inches. Amazingly, when placed in a lake, Koi can grow to three and a half feet long. The metaphor is obvious. You are limited by how you see the world.” Vince Poscente
The koi fish spirit animal signifies the gift of transformation
The world is an ever changing place. Refusing to change will rob you of great potential and incredible opportunities, so take the koi meaning seriously to experience a rebirth and a renewal.
The meaning of the koi also symbolizes peace, healing, and open channels
The koi meaning represents perseverance and adaptability. Life will not always be a bed of roses, and you will not always emerge victorious.
You should be prepared to take some losses. Learn to handle rejections like a true champ, and don’t let your setbacks prevent you from achieving your goals
The koi spirit animal encourages you to use your intuition to navigate your life effectively. Be in tune with your emotions and have some time for a little introspection.
The koi symbolism represents the need for calm and peace to navigate the rough seas of life, because using emotions in emotional situations will do more harm than good.
It also encourages you to be on the path of healing because this will provide you with the rebirth that you need.
When you do so, you will feel lighter and your head will be clearer. You will find inspiration everywhere, and the future will never look so bright!
THE MAN IN THE ARENA
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
- Theodore Roosevelt
