We all wish we could have a superpower or two to make our dreams come true. But life doesn’t work that way. However, by replacing wishing with doing, we can achieve amazing results. It all starts with resolutions and the determination to achieve it. Here are some quotes and thoughts to inspire you in the year ahead.
“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
-Francis of Assisi
Success doesn’t happen overnight. It happens over the course of time. It’s up to you to take that all important first step, then go from there.
“If you work just for money, you’ll never make it. But if you love what you’re doing, success will be yours.”
Comment: You don’t have to make more money than others to be successful. If you enjoy the work you are doing, happiness will follow. And isn’t that what being successful is all about?
“Our attitudes control our lives. They are a secret power working 24 hours a day, for good or bad. It is of paramount importance that we know how to harness and control
this great force.”
Comment: If you can maintain a positive outlook, you can achieve anything. Having confidence and control over negative thoughts will allow you to manage any situation you face.
“There is no other quality so essential to success as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.”
-John D. Rockefeller
Comment: If at first you don’t succeed, try again. You can achieve almost anything when you have the unstoppable drive to do so.
“It is not what we get. But who we become and what we contribute that gives meaning to our lives.”
Comment: True happiness and success are not measured solely by material possessions. A large part of being a successful person lies in helping others.
“Do more than is required. What is the distance between someone who achieves their goals consistently and those who spend their lives and careers merely following? The extra mile.”
-Gary Ryan Blair
Comment: Take the extra step and go beyond simply what is expected. Always do the absolute best you can do, and people will take notice.
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
Comment: Don’t let yourself get hung up on things you can’t change. The past is history and the future’s a mystery, but the current moment is a gift. That’s why it’s called “the present.”
“The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.”
Comment: Being friendly to all is key to earning the respect of others. It’s important to be able to get along with as many different types of people as possible to gain their trust and support.
“Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. it’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s when you’ve had everything to do and you’ve done it.”
Comment: Get started on the tasks you need to accomplish first thing in the morning, without procrastination. This will help to propel you to complete all you set out to accomplish.
“The groundwork of all happiness is health.”
Comment: Take the time to take care of yourself. Remember that exercise and healthy living are as much for the mind as they are for the body. When you look and feel your best, you will be your best.
Whatever your goals and challenges may be in the year ahead, we wish you health, happiness and success in achieving them. Happy 2016, from your friends at Mobile Illumination.
