Ever get caught watching the clock and stressing out about the ticking seconds and thinking that you won’t be able to get your current task done in time? That’s a dangerous thing to do because the clock doesn’t stop unless the batteries go out on it. You should take the same approach and work with the clock rather than against it. It keeps ticking methodically and so should you. Make use of each second and don’t waste time because you’ll find that eventually you’ll be looking at the clock and stressing over it, which doesn’t produce anything.

“Things change, people change, but you will always be you, so stay true to yourself and never sacrifice who you are for anyone.” – Zayn Malik

Covey is an expert on leadership. He knows that the only things in life are these three categories. You have your principles that come from deep within you which you must discover for yourself.

“There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.” – Denis Waitley

Not everyone has the capabilities to achieve incredible feats, but everybody has the ability to do small things in an incredible way. Work to make everything you do great no matter what it is. These small acts of greatness can turn into something even bigger.
When you let go of what you currently are, you can become what you want to become. We all envision the person that we want to become but sometimes it feels out of reach. We must work every day to become that person and start to believe we can. It starts with letting go of who you are today and working toward who you are supposed to be.
“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending” ~Carl Bard
We cannot change the past, we can only learn from it. However, anyone can change the ending of their life. If you do not like the past that you are heading down, then do something to change it and set yourself on the right path.
It always seems like something’s just not right in order to start something new in your life. But the timing may never be perfect, you just have to get it started so that things can begin to develop. You make things right as you go along, and you tinker with the process to account for what’s not perfect. As things pick up steam and build momentum you’ll realize that the “just right thinking was just an excuse to delay the start or procrastinate. You’ll thank yourself for starting even though it seemed like it wasn’t the best time to do so.
