Do I do my best every day with the resources that I have?

If I only give you 60 % of myself today, I cannot give you 140 % tomorrow.

Why?

Because it’s impossible to give more 100 % or yourself.

Period.

Will you take some time today to really enjoy every moment?

What are we doing right now?

Will it make us healthier?

Will it make us smarter?

Will it give us peace of mind?

Will it make us more likable?

Will it make us self-reliant?

Will it inspire us?

Will it make a difference in our lives or the lives of others?

Will it leave the World a better place?

If your answer is YES, it should be a good use of your personal time.

You can write down your own questions because they are different for each one of us.

DON’T QUIT

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest, if you must, but dont you quit.

______________________________________

Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,

When he might have won had he stuck it out;

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–

You may succeed with another blow.

_______________________________________

Often the goal is nearer than,

It seems to a faint and faltering man,

Often the struggler has given up,

When he might have captured the victor’s cup,

And he learned too late when the night slipped down,

How close he was to the golden crown.

_________________________________________

Success is failure turned inside out,

The silver tint on the clouds of doubt,

And you can never tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems afar.

So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit

It’s when things go wrong that you mustn’t quit.

Are you tempted to do what is easy instead of what is necessary?

With your health?

With your personal finances?

With your job?

With your employability?

With your kids education?

With the time you invest with family and friends?

In our leisure society, it is very tempting to get busy with non-important things.

Let’s take our responsibilities first, and after, the leisure times will be even more enjoyable.

 

Time is so precious that we should make sure no one ever comes to us without leaving BETTER and HAPPIER.

How do you do this?

Instead of thinking: What’s in it for me?

Ask yourself: What can I do NOW to make a difference in this person’s life?

All that stands between the graduate and the top of the ladder IS THE LADDER.

Recently,I spent the week-end in Burlington, Vermont. On that Sunday Morning, it was graduation day.

As I was watching all these young people ,I was thinking…

Many of us, when we receive our diploma or when we experience some kind of success, fall into the temptation of thinking;

That’s it! I got it made! I have arrived!

Wrong. Dead Wrong.

Why?

We never stop learning. We never stop being challenged. We must always get out of our comfort zone.

Because if we don’t, we stop growing.  Even worst, we shrink in every possible ways.

You don’t believe me.

Think of muscles that atrophy when not used.

Think of a brain that is never challenged intellectually.

Think of the fear of public speaking when you don’t practice often enough.

Think of every possible skill or activity that you haven’t practiced for a while.

The time that you invest in challenging yourself, in stretching yourself is what you need to grow out of your comfort zone.

Everything we do in life is similar to climbing the rungs of the ladder.

We must climb one rung at a time. We must climb regularly.This involves a continual effort.

There is no such thing of something for nothing. We must pay the price day in day out.

Let’s not fool ourselves by the thought that we have reached our destination, we are constantly travelling and discovering.

That’s what makes life exciting. That’s what make this life worthwhile.

Graduates!  Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
