“Beginning today, I will create a new future by creating a new me. No longer will I dwell in a pit of despair, moaning over squandered time and lost opportunity. I can do nothing about the past. My future is immediate. I will grasp it in both hands and carry it with running feet. When I am faced with the choice of doing nothing or doing something, I will always choose to act! I seize this moment. I choose now.” ~ Andy Andrews
“Consciousness is everything and that all things begin with a thought. That we are responsible for our own fate, we reap what we sow, we get what we give, we pull in what we put out. I know these things for sure.” ~ Madonna
“Seek wisdom. Wisdom waits to be gathered. She cannot be bartered or sold. She is a fight for the diligent. And only the diligent will find her. The lazy man – the stupid man - never even looks. Though wisdom is available to many, she is found by few. Seek wisdom. Find her, and you will find success and contentment.” ~ Andy Andrews, The Traveler’s Gift
Work Ethic seems to be universally accepted as one of the most important factors contributing to one’s success. The harder you work – the more successful you’ll be. “Do a bunch by lunch…be a winner by dinner!” ~ Unknown. Continue reading
Take Action. We’ve all had our entrepreneurial moments when a great idea popped into our head that, if implemented, could make people’s lives easier, more enjoyable, and/or more meaningful. But guess what? An idea isn’t gonna do anything for anybody until something is done about it! In fact, as long as that great idea is just sitting around in your head it’s probably doing more harm than good. It’s like procrastinating. Work that you keep postponing to complete causes stress, anxiety, fear, and usually more procrastination – making it a vicious cycle spiraling downward until something interrupts it… An Action!
“There are moments in our lives when we summon the courage to make choices that go against reason, against common sense and the wise counsel of people we trust. But we lean forward nonetheless because, despite all risks and rational argument, we believe that the path we are choosing is the right and best thing to do. We refuse to be bystanders, even if we do not know exactly where our actions will lead.” – Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks
“Are you better off than you were one year ago, one month ago, or one week ago? If not, things will not improve by themselves.” ~ Timothy Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek
“There’s no difference between a pessimist who says, ‘Oh, it’s hopeless, so don’t bother doing anything,’ and an optimist who says, ‘Don’t bother doing anything, it’s going to turn out fine anyway.’ Either way, nothing happens.” ~ Yvon Chouinard
“Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli
“Many a false step was made by standing still.” ~ Fortune Cookie
“‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you.” ~ Timothy Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek
“The best angle from which to approach any problem is the try-angle.” ~ Author unknown
“Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.” ~ Og Mandino
“No matter how carefully you plan your goals they will never be more than pipe dreams unless you pursue them with gusto.” ~ W. Clement Stone
