“The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, is in its loyalty to each other.” ~ Mario Puzo
“Loyalty isn’t grey. It’s black and white. You’re either loyal completely, or not loyal at all.” ~ Sharnay
“Loyalty cannot be blueprinted. It cannot be produced on an assembly line. In fact, it cannot be manufactured at all, for its origin is the human heart — the center of self-respect and human dignity. It is a force which leaps into being only when conditions are exactly right for it — and it is a force very sensitive to betrayal.” ~ Maurice Franks
“I have a loyalty that runs in my bloodstream, when I lock into someone or something, you can’t get me away from it because I commit that thoroughly. That’s in friendship, that’s a deal, that’s a commitment. Don’t give me paper – I can get the same lawyer who drew it up to break it. But if you shake my hand, that’s for life.” ~ Jerry Lewis
“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.” ~ J. R. R. Tolkien
“I believe that life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve.” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within
“No one ever achieved a goal by being interested in its achievement. One must be committed. In fact, in studying the source of people’s success, I’ve found that persistence overshadows even talent as the most valued and effective resource in creating and shaping the quality of life. Most people give up a maddening five feet from their goal!” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within
“Remember: courage, unused, diminishes. Commitment, unexercised, wanes. Love, unshared, dissipates.” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within
…Or a day when you really won’t feel like writing or doing your work?
…Or a day when instead of reading that book you’re going to want to watch TV, check Facebook, read e-mail, or do pretty much anything else, right?
I think we have all been there before and are very familiar with the feelings of laziness, procrastination, and boredom.
So why not plan ahead for those days, now, so that when you’re feeling low, like procrastinating, and/or bored you have a plan?
Sounds like a successful initiative to me. Continue reading
“While others were out partying, I was training. While they were out dancing at the clubs, I was training… and training… and training.” ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger
“When you’re interested in something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.” ~ Ken Blanchard
“Nothing is easier than saying words. Nothing is harder than living them, day after day. What you promise today must be renewed and redecided tomorrow and each day that stretches out before you. ~ Arthur Gordon
“One of the most common mistakes and one of the costliest, is thinking that success is due to some genius, some magic something or other which we do not possess. Success is generally due to holding on and failure to let go. You decide to learn a language, study music, take a course in reading, train yourself physically. Will it be a success or failure? It depends upon how much pluck and perseverance that word ‘decide’ contains. The decision that nothing will overrule, the grip that nothing can detach will bring success.” ~ Maltbie D. Babcock, Clergyman and Author
“You don’t win an Olympic gold medal with a few weeks of intensive training. There’s no such thing as an overnight opera sensation. Great law firms or design companies don’t spring up overnight… Every great company, every great brand, and every great career has been built in exactly the same way: bit by bit, step by step, little by little.” ~ Seth Godin
