“Our rewards in life will always be in exact proportion to our contribution, our service.”
~ Earl Nightengale
Your lifestyle seldom exceeds your personal development or perception. Everything around you is a direct reflection of you as a person. Many people dream of being successful. Successful on their job, a successful entrepreneur or maybe your goal is to write that best seller that would rival Tolkien, Rowling or Martin and they work towards that which they’re anticipating. Others are simply comfortable with getting by, they dream of earning more, improving their life but don’t put much effort into getting what they want. Then envy those who do work to get what they want.
What you become directly influences what you get. ~Jim Rohn
Here’s the challenge faced by those people who find themselves hoping for change but do nothing to create the change they desire. Though the thoughts of having something better are present, they never expect themselves to have more. By planting that tiny seed of doubt they will never become more than they are. It’s like wishing for that increase of income but doing nothing to get to that next level. Your income will never exceed your personal development unless you’re lucky enough to get a pay increase based on seniority because promotions only come to those who are in a constant flow of improving themselves. Just as your level of understanding will never exceed your level of personal growth or development; you can only move past where you are now by doing more than you are doing right now and putting more effort into your actions! You can only become more by doing more.
Five daily reminders for you to consider
1. Remember, success doesn’t just come and find you, you have to go out and get it.
2. Take time to plan your work and work towards your plan
3. Mentally, Physically, Academically take steps to improve yourself
4. Find your WHY!
5. Seek Motivation instead of approval.
Unless you change, nothing will change. But you know this!
