In everything, there’s always a way to make it better.
Even if you don’t see it right now, keep looking.
“There’s a way to do it better – find it.”
– Thomas Edison
Every top score is doomed to be broken.
Celebrate your achievement. Then look to surpass yourself.
If you keep surpassing yourself. You have the best chance to become the best in the world.
“Being the best at whatever talent you have, that’s what stimulates life.”
– Tom Landry
When you perform, you inspire others to perform too and this is good for the creativity in the world.
If you don’t have a good enough goal, you’ll find good enough excuses to not achieve it.
A good goal should scare you a little.
A good goal should also inspire you to take action.
A good goal should ask to improve yourself.
A good goal should ask that you learn something new.
A good goal should drive you to move forward.
“If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us.”
– Jim Rohn
As soon as you get the feeling that something could get better, you know you can reach out and do more.
Take the first step and put your goal on paper.
Fear of failure is the number one reason for not taking action.
Failure is not an end, it’s a step on your way to success.
“One fails forward toward success.”
– Charles Kettering
You don’t fail, you learn.
“It’s about the learning, because obviously I learn more when I fail than when I win.”
– Jason Day
If you know why you are doing it, then you have the best reason to keep going on.
We only remember victories. Most will forget all the fail that came before.
Do you know what you like to do?
Something that drives you to do more and to never count the hours you invest in it.
Something that brings a smile on your face.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
If you can find a way to do what you like and give some service to others, then you find out the perfect mix.
There’s always a way to service other.
All the good that you do will come back to you in some other way.
Your intent is the energy behind your action.
Even if the result is bad, your intent is all that matters.
“A fraudulent intent, however carefully concealed at the outset, will generally, in the end, betray itself.”
As you always keep your actions in accord with good intent, things will be all right.
“I like to encourage people to realize that any action is a good action if it’s proactive and there is positive intent behind it.”
– Michael J. Fox
Good things are always a results of actions.
Hard times are hard for everyone.
It’s how you choose to react to those hard times that makes the difference.
“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”
You need to choose to look for options. It’s a choice.
Don’t wait for someone else to help you. Analyse, learn and then lay your options on paper.
As you put it on paper, you give them a tangible form. It’s the first step to resolve the hard times you’re in.
Then, choose to take action on one of the options you found.
There’s no guaranty that you will succeed with your action.
But you’ll surely fail if you do nothing.
Are you a follower? Do you like others to choose for you?
Sometimes, it’s ok to follow. Most of the time it’s when you want to learn something that you can only learn following someone who can show it to you.
In reality, most will keep following because it feels safe.
Being safe following is an illusion. Letting someone else choose for you will never be all that you want. I can bring some good things, but it will never be all you want. In the end, you’ll always find disappointment.
“Each of you, as an individual, must pick your own goals. Listen to others, but do not become a blind follower.”
– Thurgood Marshall
Someone determine to reach for their dreams will only follow to learn.
“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.”
– Og Mandino
Follower think that they don’t face the responsibility for their failure. They live in the illusion of someone else being responsible. It’s an illusion, we’re responsible of everything we take action on. Even if it’s after someone else request or order.
No one can take the responsibility for your action.
