Success Depends on Enjoyment

Below is an interesting article by YourDailyMotivation.com -- I like the part where the author talks about success in its highest and noblest form. This kind of success brings us:

  • A calm, assured relaxed mind
  • Savoring of one's activities
  • A feeling of being blessed
  • Cheeriness, and
  • Even ravishment!

Those are my words, but the same idea is in the article. Along this line of thinking, some say that if you love what you do, you don't…

Failures Can be Stepping Stones to Sucess

Your YourDaily Motivation.com reminds us today that Success does not come without failure. Think of Babe Ruth, who for many years held the record for the most home runs. He might even still hold that record, if the baseball head honchos had not made baseballs more lively so they could be hit farther.

But Babe Ruth also held the record for striking out the most times.

Steve Jobs reminds us that when we innovate, we may fail and when we do, it is best to admit our mistakes and…

Attitude and Success

Phrases like...

  •       "You make me mad."
  •       "You hurt my feelings."

We have to Start!

If we don't start, we will never finish!  Sometimes I have a goal, but for a long time I don't make any or much progress on it. That's because I just don't get started working on it.  Here are some things I know I should do to change this.  Maybe you can use some of these ideas:

  • Define a target date, say a year from now.
  • Define an specific measurable outcome, not just a…

When You Get Into a Tight Place

The Merriam-webster diction defines perseverance as: "continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition

Perseverance is one reason that Professionals Guild has been successful in supporting single professionals in Northern California. Professionals Guild has been hosting dance party mixers since 1984!

Perseverance is a silent power that grows irresistibly greater with time." -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Cultivating Habits

See also the post on perseverance.

"As long as life is made up of habits, why not try to cultivate as many good ones as possible? It is easier to be happy than to be miserable, once we have put our mind to it.  It is better to find things to smile about and to look forward to than it is to complain, to find something…

Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change.

It involves risk as you step from the known to the unknown.

WANTING TO WIN IS EVERYTHING

WANTING TO WIN IS EVERYTHING

Success is connected with continuous action.

It's largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.

You're not finished when you're defeated, you're only finished

when you quit.



The most important quality essential to success is perseverance.

It overcomes almost everything, even nature.



You can have a fresh start any time you choose, for "failure"

is not in the falling down, but in the staying… Continue

Choosing Our Evironment

Here's some food for thought about choosing our environment:


Always be mindful that you're a product of your environment. So choose an environment that will best develop you toward your objective.



Analyze your life in terms of your environment.

Are the things around you helping you toward your success,

or are they holding you back?



The first step toward getting somewhere

is to decide that you're not going to stay where you are.

You're not a… Continue

YOUR ASPIRATIONS ARE YOUR POSSIBILITIES

The first ingredient of your success is to dream a great dream.

You must dream big and think big to be big.

High expectation always precedes high achievement.



You're as small as your controlling desires,

or as great as your dominant aspirations.

Once your mind stretches to a new idea

it will never go back to its original dimensions.



If you dream of little goals you can expect little achievement.

Dream of big goals and you'll win big… Continue

Open the Door to Freedom and Success

Nothing in life is to be feared.

It is only to be understood.

When you dare to face the things that scare you, you open the door

to freedom and success.



Most of your obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering

before them or procrastinating about dealing with them, you make up

your mind to walk boldly through them.



Don't be afraid to take the steps you need to take to make those positive

changes in your life.



To fight your… Continue
