“If you can create a career built on passion, your chances for success, fulfillment, and longevity are far greater than if you take any old job simply for the paycheck.” ~ Katherine Schwarzenegger

“Really successful people feel the same boredom and the same lack of motivation that everyone else feels. They don’t have some magic pill that makes them feel ready and inspired every day. But the difference is that the people who stick with their goals don’t let their emotions determine their actions. Top performers still find a way to show up, to work through the boredom, and to embrace the daily practice that is required to achieve their goals.” ~ James Clear, Blog

“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

“An individual’s self-concept affects every aspect of human behavior. The ability to learn…The capacity to grow and change…The choice of friends, mates, and careers. It is no exaggeration to say that a strong positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life.” ~ Dr. Joyce Brothers

Time is Our Most Precious Commodity

Given the choice, would you rather save time or money?

Most people focus on dollars. But how you spend your time is much more important than how you spend your money. Money mistakes can often be corrected, but when you lose time, it’s gone forever.

Your priorities determine how you spend your time, and time is precious.  The following statements may help you put time in perspective:

To know the value of one year… Ask the student who failed the final exam.

To know the value of one month… Ask the mother of a premature baby.

To know the value of one week… Ask the editor of a weekly newsmagazine.

To know the value of one day… Ask the wage earner who has six children.

To know the value of one hour… Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To know the value of one minute… Ask the person who missed the plane.

To know the value of one second… Ask the person who survived the accident.

To know the value of one millisecond… Ask the Olympic silver medalist.

Your time is priceless.  As Ralph Waldo Emerson advised, “Guard well your spare moments.  They are like uncut diamonds.  Discard them and their value will never be known.  Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.”

“Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” ~ John Wooden

“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
