“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 not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” ~ Maya Angelou

Screen Shot 2020-06-26 at 12.20.46Here’s a great yardstick for life, not the number of years that we rack up but the number of times we have those moments of awe that make life worth living. Be sure that as you’re living your life you are searching out moments that will take your breath away, because that’s what we’re here for, to experience joy and awe and all of the good things that life has to offer. If you don’t lose sight of this, you’ll have an amazing life experience and you’ll keep that inner youth all the days of your life.

“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.

Our daily habits is what ultimately makes us who we are. If you do everything with excellence, you will reach excellence. If you do everything with mediocrity, you will become a mediocre person. The choice and the act is up to you.

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

Screen Shot 2020-06-04 at 12.39.14

You can either accept your current conditions, or realize that you are the only person who is able to fix them. These choices decide if you are satisfied with your current situation or want more out of life. The decision is ultimately up to you.

“You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give.” – Winston Churchill

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.The money that we earn and the things that we buy make us our living. What we give to others and use to better the world give us a life. A living is something we do to create the life that we want. Neither would be completely available without the other.

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 I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” – Lao Tzu

e5fb5932aacf84f7fc380496ff90554c

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.
