If you take a responsibility for yourself, you will develop a hunger to achieve your dreams. Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else. But you can develop collaborative, achievement driven relationships. Get around people who want more out of life, who want to make a change, who want to succeed, people who are making things happen! A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.
We have all learned to remember, but few have learned to think. To repeat verbatim what others have thought and said is counted knowledge and with such borrowed knowledge the majority imagine they are satisfied, the reason being they have not discovered the art of thinking thoughts of their own. This is an art that every person must learn; the sooner the better, if the idea is to be made real. Original thinking is the secret of all greatness, all high attainments, all extraordinary achievements and all superior states of being; but no mind can create original thought until a high state of mental harmony is attained. ~Christian D. Larson
You know each year we say to ourselves, “hope this year is better than the last!” Believe it or not, each year does get better, maybe not in all the areas you wish, but they do get better. If you doubt that, just remember this from Les Brown……
“This is your time! Money, opportunities and possibilities have not left the planet. This is the time that you have to think on your feet. This is the time that you have to become relentless, unstoppable and carve out a place for yourself. Today you have to run just to stand still. Today you have to look ahead and anticipate things. Expect the unexpected and handle it.
This is your time! You must become focused, disciplined, consistent and unstoppable. Develop collaborative, achievement driven, productive relationships that will help you to work on your breakthrough. You have the power, ability and talent to create a new beginning. This is your time. Make it happen. You have something special! You have GREATNESS within you!”
