Motivational Thoughts – The Secret To Overnight Success

Work. Really hard. For years. And when a door opens, run through it. When opportunity presents itself, don’t just grab it — knock it down, toss it on your back, and sprint until you’re ready to throw up. Suck in more air and run even harder. Ignore the pain and head for the light. Run as if darkness itself is chasing you and failed steps will take your soul.

There is no such thing as an overnight success. There is only the dream of the overnight success: the myth, the legend, the want that we all have.

Lasting success is the result of hard work. Period. Dot.

If you want something, go get it. But don’t think it will come overnight. It never does. Be prepared to work hard, for years.

Be prepared to serve. To let others come first. To set yourself on fire. To set your very soul on fire. To offer your heart plain and simple, live and beating, right there on the table, every day.

Expect to be attacked. Expect to be ridiculed. Expect to be ignored.

Breathe. Hurt. Suffer. Smile.

And maybe, one day, you’ll find yourself wondering how you got so lucky — and you’ll realize it wasn’t luck at all.

Now, get back to working on your dream.

Difficult Things To Do….so do them!

Difficult Things To Do

To break a bad habit,
To love an enemy,
To think logically,
To admit ignorance, To withhold judgement, To grow old gracefully,
To persevere without haste,
To wait without impatience, To suffer without complaint,
To know when to keep silent,
To be indifferent to ridicule,
To concentrate in the midst of strife,
To endure hatred without resentment,
To fraternize without losing individuality,
To serve without compensation, commendation, recognition.

Brian Tracy Motivation – Eat That Frog – FOCUS

Mark Twain once said that “if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that it is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long.”

This is a wonderful time to be alive. There have never been more possibilities and opportunities for you to achieve more of your goals than exist today, but as Thomas Friedman says “We live in a world where more things than ever are possible, but less things than ever are guaranteed”. As perhaps never before in human history, you are actually drowning in options. In fact, there are so many things that you can do, and need to do, that your ability to decide among them may be the critical determinant of what you accomplish in life. If you are like most people today (right everyone?), you are overwhelmed with too much to do and too little time. As you struggle to get caught up, new tasks and responsibilities keep rolling in, like the waves of the ocean.

THE NEED TO BE SELECTIVE:
For this reason, and perhaps more than ever before, your ability to select your most important task (hence # 1 Goal of the Day) at each moment, and get it done quickly and well, will probably have more impact on your success than any other skill or quality you develop.

“An average person who develops the habit of setting CLEAR priorities and getting important tasks completed quickly will run circles around a genius who talks a lot and makes wonderful plans but gets very little done”

George Washington Motivation – DISCIPLINE

Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable; procures success to the weak, and esteem to all”.
–George Washington

Self-Discipline Motivation – It’s all on you….

“In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves? Self-Discipline with all of them came first.” -Harry S. Truman

“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” Buddha

“It is one of the strange ironies of this strange life that those who work the hardest, who subject themselves to the strictest discipline, who give up certain pleasurable things in order to achieve a goal, are the happiest men.
– Brutus Hamilton
