Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. – St. Francis of Assisi

Start today by doing the things that must be done. Maybe you are trying to launch a business, or maybe you’re just trying to get organised. Either way, the first steps are the first steps. Take this opportunity to lay the groundwork. Then, you can stretch yourself. Before you know it, you’ll be doing things that you never thought possible.

“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” – Winston Churchill

If you want to get better at anything, you have to accept change. Change is a natural and beautiful process that leads to growth both internally and externally. Without that change, you would become stagnant and stale. Stop holding on to the status quo, that’s not achieving anything.

“Our homes travel with us. They are wherever we feel loved and accepted.” – Kamand Kojouri

Our homes are not always the places where we grew up or the cities where we lived, They are the places where we are loved and accepted. Home is where we feel safe and are around people who look out for us and help us to grow as people.

“There is always a room at the top” ~ Daniel Webster

When you hear stories of success do you ever think that there isn’t any left for you? It’s a common thought to have but it’s not accurate. One person’s success does not leave less for the rest of us. The universe expands, and the fact is there’s always room at the top because there’s always people getting there. It isn’t a zero sum game with a loser for every winner. There are plenty of winners coexisting at the top and you can be part of the party. So use other people’s success stories as motivation rather than discouragement.

“If you want to make beautiful music, you must play the black and the white notes together.” – Richard Nixon

To make beautiful music, you have to play all the chords. In relation to everyday life, to make the world a better place, you have to respect everyone, no matter what they look like. The color of our skin does not determine our fate on this earth. The color of our skin does not mean we are inferior or superior to another being.

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” – Oprah Winfrey

Oprah is an oddly polarizing figure. She’s been loved and hated for her successes. She credits all of her success to positivity. When she speaks of her success, she rarely talks about hard work and determination. Rather she focuses on having the right thoughts and the right approach to life and work and values.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”

Here’s a nice breakdown of what it takes to get places. The brains in your head give your body the directions it needs to take you where you want to go. You just have to know where it is you want to go. Determining your destination is priority one. What the brain can dream up, the body can fulfill as long as there is a strong determination and a clear vision of what it is that is wanted. The great part is that this is all up to you, you have plenty of choices, and there are countless directions that you can head.

“I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.” ~ Estée Lauder

Dxrzs6cV4AAGJG4

Here’s a success tip from someone that achieved high levels of success. She’s saying that dreaming of success won’t get you there all by itself. You have to have a dream, but you’ll stay a dreamer unless you back up your dream with work. Learn this lesson early on in your life and it will pay dividends all the time. If things aren’t working out the way you want them to it likely means you’re not putting in enough work to make them happen. Get a clear focus, a clear dream, a clear goal, and then follow up with focused work.

“Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.” – Grandma Moses

Screen Shot 2020-06-17 at 15.19.40The life that you live is not determined by outside sources. The life that you live is determined by what you make of it. Everybody is faced with challenges they have to overcome. Some people complain about them, some people overcome them and use them to get stronger and better.
