Those who are successful do what others aren’t willing to do

I have put together a montage of famous quotes about success.

Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.

If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right.

All that we are is the result of What we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become.

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
Booker T. Washington
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.

Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game one foot from a winning touchdown.
Thomas Edison
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninty-nine percent perspiration.
Mary Kay Ash
Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try.
Frank Scully

Thich Nhat Hanh
The present moment is the only moment available to us,and it is the door to all moments.
Glenda Jackson
You’ve got to sing sometimes like you don’t need the money. Love sometimes like you’ll never get hurt. You’ve got to dance, dance, dance like nobody’s watching. It’s got to come from the heart if you want it to work.

“And in the end it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
– Abraham Lincoln

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Is marriage really just a piece of paper?

Marriage License Check-In

Statistics Canada published the national marriage and divorce rates for the last time in July 2011. Jeff Latimer, director of the Health Statistics Division at Statistics Canada said that collecting marriage and divorce statistics fell to the bottom of the bucket and were therefore scrapped to save approximately $250,000.00 per year.

I say “Really! It costs that much to run some mathematical equations with information being in databases already? You have to go through the courts to divorce and register marriages through the government. The info is already in Cyberspace”

Toronto based family lawyer, Andrew Feldstein, said statistics about divorce are not that useful anymore. “One of the problems with trying to analyze the divorce rate is that we are changing as a society. People aren’t marrying as often, but they are living in extended common-law (relationships) for periods of time that resemble marriage in almost every respect but for the piece of paper.”                                                       Marriage in America in 2010

And I say, “Really, the difference is just a piece of paper, huh! Tell that to the engaged woman planning her wedding. Tell that to the children who don’t share Dad’s last name. Tell that to the woman in the common law marriage who is not given the right to share her husband’s name. ”

Marriage is a beautiful gift. It begins with a relationship and escalates to an emotional level to which the man decides that he would like to spend the rest of his life with this woman and asks her to marry him. He gives her an engagement ring to tell her and the world that he intends to make her his. Then after much planning and organizing a beautiful day arrives in which they do promise in front of many witnesses and the universe that they promise to be together in sickness and health, for rich or for poor, forsaking all others. That is huge!

That helps during the bumps and jolts of life to know that you are committed to each other. Not just by convenience and circumstance, but by mutual decision and public display. You accepted gifts and well wishes with the intent to see your marriage continue til death do you part.

A piece of paper, indeed!

Of course, like any relationship, it does require work, but that’s another blog.

Now is the Time!

If there was ever a good time to start looking after your own butt, it is now! Jobs disappear overnight! Bankruptcy is just around the corner of an illness for many people. That is truly frightening!

I, for one, will not leave my future security in the hands of some businessman. That businessman is doing one thing for sure. Covering his/her own butt! Not mine, not yours! Theirs!

So I scoured and scoured the internet. I went to dozens and dozens of online webinars. I bought countless pieces of information on things that promised to get me Thousands of $$$$ in next to no time with their smashing technology– push button, Clickbank offers ,backlinks, forward links, digital media, Ebay— here’s how you do it deals to find myself much more knowledgeable, but not much further ahead.

It pains me how every system gives only a piece of the pie, but advertises that they have the whole meal deal! Ouch.

But, finally, I have found the key to success. The timing is right! The market is hot and getting hotter! The leadership is there! The training is there! The backoffice is there! The advertising is, you guessed it, there! The conference calls, the webinars, the product, the delivery, the service, the coaching. It is all there!!!And you will absolutely fall over when you see how little it costs to secure your place in the future!

Come and join the team!
I will reply to all comments,
To your success,

capabilities that you have make you unique

The school system has it all wrong. They insist on making you work on things you are not gifted at, never do good at and generally don’t enjoy doing! One who’s poor in math, for example, must do a good many more questions than one who is good at it. In contrast, the things a student is good at gets less time spent on it, because, they are good at it!

To be success I believe we must do the opposite.

Seems to me that we should be working on enhancing those skills and abilities we are good at. Encourage investigation, explorations of the very things we seem to have  a slight edge at. Spend time and energy developing a greater understanding of the very things that intrigue us most.

Stop spending time on things you are not good at. Delegate those things. Hire out those things that you despise doing. You will NEVER be known for those things that you work hard at and  spend time on that you are not good at!!There is someone else in your community that is good at the very thing you wish you didn’t have to do. Find them to do it for you.

You only get one chance to make the best of today. Go out and spend your time doing something you are already kinda good at! Bet you’ll get satisfaction and maybe even, a little better! When you find success doing what you are already good at, have a inclination for, perhaps a love of, you will be remembered!

Have a joyful day! Share your unique gifts and let others share theirs.

 

This is my gift to you

a little movie to watch each day for 30 days to boost your self esteem, and positive attitude so you can attract more of what you WANT into your life

I want you to succeed more than you know.

God Bless,

Capabilities-part 2 of the Power of Trust

Once you have established your own integrity, your credibility will balance on your capabilities.

Some questions to ask yourself are:

*Do I have the right skills?

*Do I have the correct knowledge–Am I relevant?

*Am I current in my field, can I add value or am I relying on yesterday’s skill set?

*What’s my track record?

*Do my results inspire trust and confidence?

This will help you develop your 4 CORES

INTENTION

INTEGRITY

CAPABILITY

RESULTS

When you have the 4 cores you can, first and foremost, trust Yourself, but then you can also present to the world a person that can be trusted, is worthy of trust, and deserving of it.

Once trust is achieved there is NOTHING as fast as the Speed of Trust. The fruit of trust is that every relationship built on it, every interaction, every communication, every transaction is extraordinary.

Nothing is as profitable as the economics of trust.
