First you make your habits, and then your habits make you. Break those habits that can break you. Adopt those practices that will become the new habits that will help you achieve the success you desire.
Your habits are a form of exercise. The harder you work at something, the harder it is to quit. The easier it is to do, the harder it is to change.
Your habits are either the best of servants or the worst of masters. You are what you repeatedly do.
There is no shortage of opportunity for success. Everyday you’re presented with countless opportunities to be, or do whatever you desire. Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity. Don’t miss out on an opportunity because you’re not prepared.
Your preparation is absolutely essential. To achieve success, you must have self discipline. You must increase your knowledge and develop your skills.
You’re always at the right place at the right time when you’re prepared.
Your opportunity for success is right in front of you. It is your next step. To attain success or to reach your goal, don’t worry about having all the answers in advance. You just need to have a clear idea of your goal and move toward it.
Don’t procrastinate when faced with a difficult problem. Break your problems into parts and handle one part at a time.
Develop a tendency toward action. You can make something happen today. Break your big plan for success into small steps and take the first step right away.
Your dilemma goes deeper than having a shortage of time, it’s basically a problem of priorities.
Most people leave undone those things that should be done, while they do things that they shouldn’t be doing. Set priorities for your goals.
A major part of successful living lies in your ability to put first things first. Most major goals are not achieved because people put second things first. Is what your doing getting you closer to your objectives? Anything that is wasted effort represents wasted time.
The courage to begin separates dreamers from achievers. Your difficulty and the difficulty of everyone who ever desires to achieve anything worthwhile comes in the movement. Don’t always be intending to live a new life, but never find a time to begin living it.
Most people fail because they never get started. They don’t go, they don’t overcome inertia, they don’t begin. Begin to free yourself at once by doing all that is possible with the means you have.As you proceed in this spirit, the way will open for you to do more. The worst you can do is not to try.
Without goals there is no is no achievement. The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this. Decide what you want. The world will turn aside and let you pass if you know where you are going.
Goals give you a starting place and a destination. Determine what you want. Decide on your major objections, targets, and destination.
Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change. It involves risk as you step from the known to the unknown. All your growth will depend on your activity. Your strength and growth will come only through continuous effort and struggle. There will be no development without effort.
Trouble is the common denominator of living. It is the great equalizer of life. Your trials, your sorrows and your grief’s will develop you. When good or bad fortune comes your way, you must give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
What happens to you is not as important as your reaction to what is happening.
