“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” – Mary Kay Ash
“I am thankful to all who said no to me. It is because of them that I’m doing it myself.” ~ Albert Einstein
Sometimes no isn’t the answer you want to hear, but there’s a reason for it. Can you imagine being the person that said no to Einstein? Surely they regretted that decision later. The thing is that if you have someone telling you know it could be a sign that you should just do it yourself. Or it could mean that you need to ask someone else. Don’t put a lot of stock in any one person saying yes, just never give up if it’s truly important to you.
Time should be used to work for you. Either you’re using time to get things done, or you are using time to wait for things to develop. Time is a great tool when used effectively, but as it is said here, it is not best to us it as a couch.
If you are only focusing on yourself and your life then are not building any type of legacy. Becoming successful is tough but nobody does it without helping other people. A life is only worth the impact it has on other lives so strive to make the people around you better.
“The greater the difficulty, the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.” – Epictetus
If we were never challenged, we would never learn anything! You can pick up some of the most valuable lessons from your life’s challenges. You have a chance to become wise after going through arduous times. Look at it like school – The School of Life.
With all of the media we have today, sometimes love is portrayed in an idealistic way that is not really for anybody. People get ideas in their heads from movies, which were written to be perfect. Perfect people are not real and we need to realize that.
It’s funny to think that you may accomplish things without even knowing that you couldn’t do it. It’s kind of like the placebo effect, but in reverse. If someone would have told you you couldn’t do it, maybe you wouldn’t have been able to do it. Think of all of the things you think you can’t do, and question why you think you can’t do them. Can you not do them because you know you can’t, or because you tried them and were not successful? It may be time to try things you once thought you couldn’t do.
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”- Dr. Seuss
Leaders are readers, no doubt about that. Reading helps you learn about whatever it is you want to know about. You can study up on an exotic travel destination, or a new method of doing business. There will always be those willing to share their knowledge with you, and this gives you a jump on the situation so you can have as much information as possible. Reading and learning really are the ticket to getting around the globe.
If anyone knows about this, it’s Albert. Every single challenge you face has something in it that is of value to you, should you choose to see it. It goes along with the saying about every cloud having a silver lining. Learn and grow from your troubles and you will only be empowered because of it.
Even the most seemingly insignificant beings can make quite a difference to someone. Everyone you come into contact with gives you an opportunity to make a difference. Get off the couch and go make one today. Get started, work hard, and the differences you make in your life and that of others will only grow.
