The beginning of a habit is like an invisible thread, but every time we repeat the act we strengthen the strand, add to it another filament, until it becomes a great cable and binds us irrevocably, thought and act.
Concentrate all your thoughts on the task at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to focus.
The only certain means of success is to render more and better service than is expected of you no matter what your task may be.
The first law of success is concentration – to bend all the energies to one point, and to go directly to that point, looking neither to the right nor to the left.
There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants and a burning desire to achieve it.
Just begin and the mind grows heated; continue, and the task will be completed!
Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving.
There’s no point in failing and then dealing with it by pretending it didn’t happen, or blaming someone else. That would be a wasted opportunity to learn more about yourself and perhaps to identify gaps in your skills, experiences or qualifications. Once you’ve identified the learning you can then take action to make a difference.
Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.
Victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat.
You can’t make time; so those who waste the least, achieve the most.
You don’t have to tell how you live each day;
You don’t have to say if you work or you play;
A tried, true barometer serves in the place–
However you live, it will show in your face.
The false, the deceit that you bear in your heart,
Will not stay inside where it first got a start;
For sinew and
If you have a tender message,
Or a loving word to say,
Do not wait till you forget it,
But whisper it today;
The tender word unspoken,
The letter never sent,
The long forgotten messages,
The wealth of love unspent–
For these some hearts are breaking,
For these some loved ones wait;
So show them that you care for them
Before it is too late.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
Your life will be a full one if you do what you ought yo do, and be where you ought to be. Begin again every day, begin anew – without being discouraged, without being afraid constantly.
How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child.
