Hey fam! I hope you kicked off your day with a positive attitude! I know that’s hard to do most of the time; especially since we’re constantly surrounded with problems that just won’t go away! Problems with varying intensity – from something as serious as gas prices that keep fluctuating to very negligible things such as your very obnoxious, discouraging, and self-obsessed boss whose perception of you determines whether or not you’ll be promoted, and hence, how much you earn and the quality of your life!
I watched this video today! Gotta say I applauded right after it on my chair watching on my laptop. Makes perfect sense and can be applied to almost every phase of life. Enjoy and watch multiple times if you need to ‘get it’. Keyword is this… You inspire action by telling ‘why’, then ‘how’ and then ‘what’. I wish I could express in words how well I see this picture in my head. Anyways, embedded below. Savor it…
“All of the top achievers I know are life – long learners…looking for new skills, insights and ideas. If they’re not learning, they’re not growing…not moving towards excellence” – Denis Waitley
I have found that often times to get from one level in life to a higher one, we need to improve ourselves. Here’s what I’ve discovered: for us to climb up the ladder of success, we need a little more than we needed to get to the level we’re at now. The acquisition of the “little more” we need will, in most cases, be less stressful as we progress up the ladder of success. But the fact remains that we need to acquire more to get us to the next level. We need to acquire more knowledge, and new skills to be able to increase.
Some of us wish things were so rosy that we never had to keep working on ourselves to attain greatness. Unfortunately that’s just the way it is. Whether it is getting a promotion at the job, doubling or tripling your sales, counseling/ motivating people, or expanding the client base in your business, acquiring more knowledge and improving your skills is very crucial.
“Jesus said to him, if you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes” – Mk 9:23 (AKJV) At some point in the pursuit of our dreams, we exhaust our drive. It tends to be a natural occurrence…
“It’s better to have tried and failed than to live life wondering what would’ve happened if I had tried” – Alfred Lord Tennyson
I have found that most of the time, the things we fear the most are the things we perform the best at; after we’ve broken through the fear that is.
“With a definite, step-by-step plan – ah, what a difference it makes! You cannot fail, because each step carries you along to the next, like a track…” – Scott Reed.
A lot of us have goals we want to achieve, or skills we want to learn. I’m pretty certain that most of us have the yearning to be great at something. Now that’s a great! That’s a desirable trait, one that we should all have.
“Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be.” Karen Ravn. If you don’t dream big, you would stay forever in that nook of the world where everything is mediocre, where sense of achievement is an abstract concept, and where success is all but inexistent.
