 You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true.

The achievement of your goal is assured the moment you commit yourself to it.

If you have the desire, you have the power to obtain it.

You can have anything you want in life if you will  sacrifice everything else for it.

Your dreams can come true if you pursue them.

Your greatest success and happiness in life will be found when you use your natural abilities to their fullest extent.  Happiness is not having or being.  It's in the doing.

The essence of true wisdom is to know that rest is rust, and that real life is activity, laughter, and love.

You were created to conquer your environment, to solve problems, and to achieve goals. You'll find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve.

Yes, there is true happiness.  It's found in doing a job well done, in achieving a worthy goal, in putting your child to sleep, and in writing the last line of your poem.

Your personal growth itself contains the seed of happiness.

There is no sudden leap to greatness.  Your success lies in doing, day by day.

Your upward reach comes from working well and carefully.

Good work done little by little becomes great work.  Your house of success will be built brick by brick.

Adopt the pace of nature.  The secret is patience.

A bottle fills drop by drop.

Thought of the Day

"Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world. What you see reflects your thinking. And your thinking but reflects your choice of what you want to see."

Success is connected with continuous action.

It's largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.
You're not finished when you're defeated, you're only finished when you quit.

The most important quality essential to success is perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.

You can have a fresh start any time you choose, for "failure" is not in the falling down, but in the staying down. It's not over until it's over.

If you've got the courage to stick it out, you'll attain your goal.
Winning isn't everything, but wanting to is.

You need a plan to find success. Wanting success isn't sufficient enough to get it.

You've got to ask yourself, "What are you going to do to get the things you want."

Your problem is to bridge the gap which exists between where you are now and the goal you intend to reach.

You cannot fail with a definite step by step plan, because each step you take will carry you along to the next step, like a track.

All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.

You cannot get lost on a straight road.

Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you're ready or not to put your plan into action.

It's up to you to take the first step.  The first step will take some effort, maybe pain.  But after that, everything that has to be done is real - life movement.  Once you're moving, you can keep moving.

If you can get up the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

The only true failure lies in the failure to start.  Eighty per cent of success is showing up.

Winning starts with beginning.

Everything is possible when you believe it's possible.  What you envision you can do, you can do.

What your mind can conceive and believe, your mind can achieve.
Your mind sets your limits.  Start thinking of yourself  as a success.  Know in your heart that you can do the job you've set out to do.  Believe in yourself.
If you think you can, you can.

 There are no real barriers to your success.  You must simply overcome any doubts you have about your ability.

Your self image prescribes the limits of your accomplishments.  It prescribes the area of what is possible for you.

Don't be afraid of living.  If you believe that your life is worth living you'll create that fact around you.

If you see yourself as prosperous, you will be.  If you see yourself as broke, that is exactly what you will be.  You will never succeed until you believe that you can succeed.

You can be who you want to be.

 Success is a road paved with perseverance.  The odds are with you if you keep trying.

There is no failure except in not trying.  You cannot be beaten at anything, until you quit in your own mind.  There is no defeat except from within.

You have no really insurmountable barrier except your own inherent weakness of purpose.

Consider yourself on a very long journey.  Sustain your personal vision of success.  In the end, you can only fail if you do not try.

Winning isn't everything, but wanting to is.

You don't need an explanation for everything.
Recognize that there are such things as miracles, events for which there are no explanations.  Later, knowledge may explain those events away. 

The fact that you plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return are common miracles.
Your duty to yourself is to believe that for which you have sufficient evidence, and to suspend your judgement when you have not.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Some things have to be believed  to be seen.
Vision is the art of seeing invisible things.

New Year's Resolutions or Goals?

I stopped writing New Year's resolutions many years ago.  But never fear - I started to write my New Year's Goals.

I have found that I am much more likely to stick with my goals than those silly resolutions! is so very important to write down your goals instead of just keeping them in your head.  After all - if you write them down - you have committed to doing something to achieve them

So - what are my 2012 goals?  I decided that I will begin with just one goal on this blog!  

Goal #1 - Blog on a daily basis  *ha*  It is January 18th and I have obviously failed miserably!  SO - I am going to do much better going forward or else - I will have to write this one off as a big ole FAIL.  I do not enjoy failing at here it is...out there for everyone to see!

Stay tuned for other goals forthcoming!

Thoughts on 2012

Well hello there Blog!

Did you think that I forgot about you?  Well - I didn't but I must admit that I am finding that this particular blog is difficult to write.

I want to say goodbye - once and for all to 2011.  It just was a difficult year - that is all there is to it!  As you probably noticed I have been posting a lot of motivational and inspirational quotes each day.  To be quite frank here I posted those to keep my spirits up!

You see - in February 2011, my company announced a major reorganization.  Many of us did not know exactly what that would mean to us but we knew without a doubt that it would touch us in some form or fashion.  AND...touch us it did.  It took months...and I mean months for us to know our fate.  Some found out that they would be losing their jobs and some would be staying at a company that was going to be greatly restructured.

I had to do everything in my power to prepare for the worse.  I had to work to keep my spirits high and keep a positive attitude - hence the many...many inspirational postings each day.

Now - with that said I came to really enjoy those daily postings so I think that I will continue to post them.  They truly start my day in a positive mode so maybe they will do the same for you!

In closing - 2012 is an opportunity for a fresh start, a clean slate.  An opportunity to do something different and hopefully better!

Here is wishing you a blessed and successful 2012.

Coming soon - my take on Goals versus Resolutions!

Until we meet again...

Your destiny isn't a matter of chance, it's a matter of the choices you'll make in the coming year.
Success isn't something you wait for, it's something you must pursue in the months ahead. 

Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities to be successful.  Seize common occasions and turn them into great ones.
Opportunities sometimes come disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat. 

Start where you are.  You're at this moment, standing right in the middle of opportunity.
If you act on your dreams you can live them in the New Year.
You have a lot to look forward to. 

Happy New Year
