“The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.” – Marcus Aurelius
Want a better answer? Ask a better question.
Throughout the day we ask ourselves questions. These questions direct our attitude, our focus, our work and therefore our results. By understanding how to use questions we have more control and influence over our personal pursuit of excellence!
“In truth, the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the difference of their habits. Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked doors to failure.” – Og Mandino
from the The Greatest Salesman in the World
Many of our daily activities are simply routine. From the time you get up in the morning until the time you go to bed at night, there are hundreds of things you do the same way every day.
This includes the way you dress. The way you get ready for the day. The way you eat breakfast. The way you read the newspaper. The way you even brush your teeth. The way you greet people. If you’ve been doing these same activities for years, you have a set of firmly entrenched habits.
Remember, to put everything you have into everything you do…that choice is uniquely yours!
“We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.” – Jim Rohn
Self-Discipline is the process that ties your efforts together in your pursuit of the life you desire. This is a pivotal concept as many of the principles or laws of success cannot be put into action without it.
Put everything you have into everything you do because the best is yet to come!
“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.” – Albert Ellis
So, tonight was a stunning discussion regarding ecology but not in the way you might think. Listen in and take note, you merely have to get started, following these distinctions on your goals. This will accelerate you toward your pursuit of excellence!
“Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean, man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives. Man’s life is independent. He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self.” – B. R. Ambedkar
The age old question: “Who Am I?” is the topic this week. It’s important for us to know who we are in relation to the goals we set, the life we desire and the values we profess. By understanding this, we identify what changes we must make in order to become who we must become to move forward.
Put everything you have into everything you do…the BEST is yet to come!
