Today is the time to start trying, one more time. Maybe you just need one more trip to the gym. Maybe you need to send just one more email. Maybe you need to revise your CV just one more time. This one more effort could be the one that matters.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time – Thomas Edison
Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong – Ella Fitzgerald
Success is about more than money. You don’t find the most successful people boasting about their car collection. Instead, you hear these people talk about how blessed they are to do what they love to do. When you have outer fulfilment of your inner desires, you are successful.
A gradual process is the best. No one has ever achieved their dreams in a few short weeks. Even in those industries where you see overnight success, it’s not really an overnight success. There were years of careful planning and late nights before the plan came together.
Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” – Anais Nin
Your dreams bring success, but it might not be the success you expect. You could be put on a new path or be compelled to forge your own way in life. You could be thrown a curveball, but the right answer is to go with the flow and turn it into success.
Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference – Robert Frost
When we get to a point where a decision must be made, do what most people are afraid to do. Blaze a trail and make your legacy. Robert Frost, like many on this list, did not have a fancy car collection or a vacation home in Maui. His success came from within.
If your only motivation is money, you will not succeed. If money is a part of that dream, that’s great. What you really have to pursue are those things that you truly love. You will lose any pursuit if it is one dimensional. Pursue what you love and success is guaranteed.
“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” – Mary Kay Ash
How long are you going to hold yourself back from having what you really want in life? Your dreams belong to you, but you have to bring them to the present for yourself. When you are making things happen for yourself, the journey itself brings joy to your heart.
“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
The journey can bring you happiness. The first thing is breaking those chains that you’ve put on yourself. Get rid of those restrictions and start reaching for the next level. Before you know it, you’ll be making progress on things you’ve wanted as long as you can remember.
“When you stop chasing the wrong things you give the right things a chance to catch you.” ~ Lolly Daskal
Have you identified some things in your life that may be the wrong thing to chase? It’s funny how as time goes by some of the things you found important at some time in the past don’t seem that important anymore. You could still be chasing them on autopilot. Once you give up the chase, the right things, the things you want in your life right now, have a chance to catch up to you and you can have what you really want. Give it a try and see if it happens for you, at the very least you won’t be wasting time on the wrong things anymore.
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.
