You alone steer the course you choose in the direction of where you want to be today, tomorrow or in any distant time to come. You hold the tiller.
You can decide to alter the course of your life at any time. No one can ever take that away from you. You can decide what you want and go after it.
You don’t have to buy from anyone.
You don’t have to work at any particular job.
You don’t have to participate in any given relationship.
You can choose.
It’s always your next move.
It isn’t enough to just want to be successful. You’ve got to ask yourself: “What are you going to do to get the things in life you want?”
Your problem is to bridge the distance which exists between where you are now and the goal you intend to reach. Planning brings your future into the present so you can do something about it now.
Somewhere there is a map of how it can be done. All you need is a good plan, and the courage to press on to your destination. A well built house is started with a definite purpose and a set of blueprints. Your plan should provide the pattern for the actions you’ll take. Take time each day to study, think and plan.
Plan your steps, then implement your plan, then review your results. Do this frequently and make the appropriate alterations to your plan, and you’ll develop the power that will bring you to success.
No one was ever lost on a straight road.
You have the power and the opportunity to change your life. You can make anything you want of it including your dreams. It’s not difficult, it just takes some effort.
See things as you would have them be instead of as they are. Develop a personal plan that focuses on what you want, not on what you have.
Your imagination will show you how to turn possibility into reality. Visualize your goals and your subconscious will work toward making those mental picture come true.
When you picture yourself as vividly winning, that alone will contribute immeasurably to your success.
Knowing your destination and implementing your plan is all you need to get there.
May you and yours have a Happy Holiday this season and may 2015 be your best year yet!
Sooner or later you’ll encounter a crisis in your life, and how you meet it will determine your future happiness and success. You gain strength overcoming obstacles.
Since the beginning of time, everyone has been called upon to meet such a crisis. Close scrutiny will show you that most “crisis situations” are opportunities to either advance or stay where you are. Indeed, most changes in your life will be due to either “inspiration” or “desperation.”
Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change. Whatever comes your way, give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
A precious stone cannot be polished without friction, nor humanity perfected without trials.
You’ll never achieve real success unless you like what you’re doing. What you do is more important than how much money you make. How you feel about what you do is more important than what you do.
The more you love what you’re doing, the more successful it will be for you. Don’t set compensation as your goal. Find the work you like and the compensation will follow.
You don’t pay the price of success, you enjoy the price of success.
The world is primarily constituted on the basis of harmony. Everything works in cooperation with something else.
Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all advancement, all success, all achievement in real life grows.
Put yourself in another’s place. Only then will you know why they think and do certain things. Once you understand how quickly people will grant your requests when those requests appeal to their self interest, you can have practically anything you go after.
It’s through cooperation not conflict, that you’ll achieve your greatest success.
Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. Many people take the first step and then stop. Yet, with every additional step you take, you enhance immensely the value of your first step.
All masters of success are chiefly distinguished by their power of adding a second, a third, and perhaps a forth step in a continuous line.
There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession is the rule of life. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.
Do not despise the bottom rings in your ascent to greatness.
Most people leave undone those things that should be done, while they do things that they should not be doing. Set priorities for your goals and use your time in those activities. 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. Don’t serve time, make time serve you.
The dreams you choose to believe in come to be. When you feel in your innermost being that you will achieve what you set out to do, you open the way for miracles. Your outlook helps determine what your life is.
Choose to believe something good can happen. Expecting it to happen energizes your goal and actually gives it momentum.
What you expect to happen, happens. If you expect to succeed, you’ll succeed.
