Greet each day with an understanding of accepting it as another opportunity for a fresh start or new beginning or new horizon. Receive it with a heart of gratitude, look ahead with lessons from the past and great faith in today and great expectation for the future in all your endeavours. It can always get better when you reach out with freshness of a new day for a brand new opportunity to right the wrong, set new goals and break new ground.
“Dwell not on the past. Use it to illustrate a point, then leave it behind. Nothing really matters except what you do now in this instant of time. From this moment onwards you can be an entirely different person, filled with love and understanding, ready with an outstretched hand, uplifted and positive in every thought and deed.” ~Eileen Caddy~
Many sportsmen train in the gyms but only few become champions. Not all that went to school are successful in the real world, hence, it’s not all about the training ground but about a desire to break new ground and writing your name in gold. The burning desire to be the best and number one becomes a vision, a dream that makes an ordinary sportsman go all out to make history and win a gold medal to become a Champion. Your path to success starts from that burning desire, a dream or a vision. Pursue it and I will see you at the top.
“Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision.” – Muhammad Ali
Character is the major force to sustain your success story. A disciplined man is a man of character, being consistent is a character, delayed gratification is a character, integrity is also a character and being hardworking is a character as well, so, all these qualities and more make a solid character that will build and sustain a success story. Therefore, character is always your choice, and people of character do what is right regardless the situation and while your circumstances are beyond your control, your character is not. Moreover, character is developed through experience of trial and suffering through which the soul can be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved. Consequently, developing strong character is certainly the most important to make sure you don’t make the least of your success story. To climb the ladder of success through years of hard work and discipline can be ruined by a compromise on character, therefore, stay strong all the way.
“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” ~ Warren Buffett~
If you must make a difference in life, you must take the road less travelled. There are no crowd at the top, just few people are able to get to the top because the few took the road less travelled- delayed gratification, self discipline, concentration, resilience, perseverance, determination, massive action, etc. Success comes with a price and only those who pay the price earn it. If you desire a remarkable result in your field, you must not follow the crowd but be single minded, focus on your dream and do the unusual to get the unusual result different from the crowd.
“The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been.” – Alan Ashley-Pitt
No matter how strong you are, with your strength and knowledge without “Will” to succeed, success can never be activated. Anyone that will succeed in life must have the Will to succeed, the Will is the strong desire or determination or personal choice to succeed. When there is a Will you will work the way but without the Will you will work nothing. It is your Will power that enhances your choices. If your goal is success there must be a Will to pursue it.
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.” ~Vince Lombardi~
One of the qualities you need to succeed in life is perseverance. This is a quality that allows you to be consistent and continue to try even when things are difficult. Your strength is always there but without perseverance it won’t be put to work, therefore, to get great things done and accomplish great work, you must persevere to hit your target and be successful.
“I do not think there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.” ~John D. Rockefeller ~
“Perseverance is a great element of success.” ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~
NOTHING JUST HAPPEN. For every happening, there is a process, there is a behind the scene to every event. Whether physical or spiritual, there is a force at work that brings to bear what you see on the surface, so if what you desire is so much burning in your heart, then don’t let the fire go out, fan it to flame. You must work on our goal with passion and know that it will definitely take time to create the picture of the future in your mind (vision). So be patient with the process as you go through.
“Success is every minute you live. It’s the process of living. It’s stopping for the moments of beauty, of pleasure; the moments of peace. Success is not a destination that you ever reach. Success is the quality of the journey.” ~ Jennifer James ~
“Success is a process, a quality of mind and way of being, an outgoing affirmation of life.” ~ Alex Noble ~
