Preparation Is Key!

PREPARATION IS KEY!

One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation. ~Arthur Ashe
 
If the opportunity of a lifetime presented itself, would you be ready? What steps are you taking now to be prepared? Just like you feed your body, you must feed your mind as well. 
You have to put in the time, the effort, the work.  Zig Ziglar said, “The most practical, beautiful, workable philosophy in the world won’t work – if you won’t.”

Happy or Unhappy

Are You Happy?

This morning, while reading How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, this sentence (I’m sure there’ll be more) stood out to me.  “It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy.  It is what you think about it.” 

It made me think about how some of us go about our day and not even acknowledge one another, let alone smile.  
Whether it be the person at the toll booth, the cashier at your local store, or just someone sitting next to you on your commute to work, sharing a simple smile can help change their mood, and yours.  If it makes it worse, well then that’s an entirely different issue.  
SMILE!  Someone needs it! 
Smile

Be A Blessing…

Share your sunshine and encouragement. Someone somewhere needs exactly what you have. Be a blessing…

“Press on – nothing can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Perseverance and determination alone are omnipotent.”– Calvin Coolidge

Don’t Be A Rotten Apple!

Don’t be a rotten apple and show some appreciation.  Whether it be employee, family member, someone providing some sort of service to you…a simple thank you, I appreciate or a genuine smile…that can make someone’s day.

There’s enough ugliness in the world.  Brighten it up with a show of appreciation!
Don't be a rotten apple

Tweak The Method

You can tweak the method, but stay committed to your goals.

Sometimes you may find certain things that you are doing are not working.  That doesn’t mean your goal is not attainable.  You just have to switch it up a bit and try a different method.  Never lose sight of your goals.  Make adjustments, but keep your eye on the prize!
