Do You Got it What it Takes?

August 31, 2017

 

Persistence is the key ingredient in achieving anything you desire from life. It is holding to a course of continued action, belief, and purpose without giving in or giving up.  Napoleon Hill wrote in his book Think and Grow Rich, “There may be no heroic connotation to the word persistence, but the quality is to a person’s character what carbon is to steel.” Persistence is a habit that will begin to cultivate, when you realize your life’s purpose, have a strong desire, and strengthen your will.  Set goals for yourself and follow through on them.

Nothing worthwhile in life comes without struggles to overcome.  There are no cheap goods in the heavenly market, and everything worth having is expensive. Surround yourself with people who will lift you up, and are pursuing their own dreams, have faith and take action every day toward your dream.  The opposite of persistence is procrastination, this is truly an enemy.  It will keep you stuck, weak and create all kinds of excuses why you can not accomplish something. Face yourself honestly and openly, challenge yourself, to overcome this habit. Believe in yourself and know that you can not fail if you persist, and move in the direction of your dream.  For every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success.

The philosopher Henry David Thoreau quoted “If you advance confidently in the direction of your dream, and live the life you can image, you will meet with success, unexpected in common hours.”  Go live your dream.

Are You Busy or Productive?

September 1, 2015

When people ask me how am I? I never like to say I’m so busy. I’d rather say I have many projects that I am involved in. To me, busy can mean spinning my wheels without getting anywhere. The language I use internally and externally can affect your productivity. Yes, so many of us have so many things on our plate that it can seem overwhelming, but I never found multi-tasking the solution. How about focusing on one project at a time? We live in a world of addiction and distraction. It’s the shiny object syndrome. We can get lead astray very easily, if we do not stay focused on the task at hand.  Concentration, is a skill that needs to be cultivated and practiced. If your an archaeologist searching for bones, or an astronomer looking for stars, it tasks long hours of persistence, focus, and skill, to keep your mind sharp and productive. A busy mind will never do. A busy mind, also is sending out vibrations of chaos rather than calmness, and that is exactly what will be reflected back to you. So stay calm, centered and productive in this busy world.     busy vs productive
