Common Forum/Request/Suggestions / Failure Is A Golden Opportunity
« on: December 14, 2014, 10:39:41 AM »
To assure that you will never experience failure:
• don't take a risk,
• don't attempt anything new,
• don't expand on your ideas,
• don't set goals.

Never to do any of these things actually guarantees you will fail. In effect, to never experience a failure limits our learning and our growth.

Why? We can learn from every failure. Failure is a golden opportunity to start again with more knowledge than we had before. To quote Henry Ford, "Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently."

The most important element in the failure equation is your personal commitment to keep trying. Many times when I was ready to quit, I would remember Thomas Edison's quote, "Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
Don't give up on your dreams because of one unsuccessful attempt!

More wisdom on giving up and success:
"Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve, there is a series of obstacles, and the bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacles. Your decision to be, have and do something out of the ordinary entails facing difficulties and challenges that are out of the ordinary as well. Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it longer than anyone else." Brian Tracy

"Successful people see alternatives and are willing to try different ways. People who only see failure are unable to see another way and give up to easily." Catherine Pulsifer

"If you don't accept failure as a possibility, you don't set high goals, you don't branch out, you don't try - you don't take the risk." Rosalynn Carter

"Perseverance is a great element of success. If you knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Persistent people begin their success where others end in failure." Edward Eggleston

"Each failure to sell will increase your chances for success at your next attempt." Og Mandino

Common Forum/Request/Suggestions / Having enthusiasm
« on: December 14, 2014, 10:38:28 AM »
Having enthusiasm in performing any task gives you an abundance of energy. Harry Truman demonstrated his wisdom when he said, "I studied the lives of great men and famous women, and I found that the men and women who got to the top were those who did the jobs they had in hand, with everything they had of energy and enthusiasm."

Showing enthusiasm also motivates others around you. People naturally want to be around people who are upbeat and have energy.

An acronym for enthusiasm:
E nergy
N imble
T enacious
H appy
U nbeatable
S elf-confidence
I nexhaustible
A chievable
S uccess
M otivated

Those who demonstrate enthusiasm are far more likely to succeed because of their attitude towards the task at hand. Someone who lacks enthusiasm rarely succeeds, and the reason is because of the attitude that they have. When they face a problem they are more likely to give up.

An enthusiastic person believes in what they are doing. They are excited and look forward to the day to achieve the task at hand. They have self-confidence in themselves and will find solutions to any challenges that come along. Walter Chrysler once said, "The real secret of success is enthusiasm. Yes, more than enthusiasm, I would say excitement. I like to see men get excited. When they get excited they make a success of their lives. " The wisdom of his words still applies today.

We all have a choice, we can decide to be enthusiastic or we can just put in the day. If you are working at a job that you are not enthusiastic about, then find work that excites you. If you need to improve your skills to get that job, then take courses and learn all you can. You will find your life is much happier if you are doing something that excites you rather than bores you.

Having enthusiasm for what you are doing does not mean you won't face challenges or difficulties, but you will be able to overcome these difficulties as long as you keep your attitude positive.

Put lots of enthusiasm in all you do!

Common Forum/Request/Suggestions / What You Think Determines What You Do
« on: December 14, 2014, 10:36:32 AM »
- if you think it is impossible, then it is; if you think it can be achieved, then what you see is not the impossible, but the end result. Many people have defeated themselves before they even started by thinking that their goal is not possible. And just as many people have had great successes because they believed that their goal was achievable.

- if you believe in yourself then you will find a way no matter what obstacles and challenges you face along the way. You will see these obstacles as opportunities. If you look at an obstacle as an opportunity you will find ways, you will use your creativity and find a solution that will solve the obstacle. Sometimes, obstacles are actually gifts, as they make us look at situations in a different way.

- and, if you are determined then you have a 90% chance of success. Your own attitude can determine your success or your failure. If you have determination then there is no stopping you. Determination gives us the ability to overcome challenges. It also gives us the belief that we can do it - no matter what anyone else thinks or believes.

Common Forum/Request/Suggestions / Change Yourself
« on: December 14, 2014, 10:35:50 AM »
How many times have we attempt the impossible and tried to change other people - but attempting this is a waste of time!

I can't tell you how many times I have tried to change other people and I have failed. There was one person in particular with whom I am very close; this person was not happy with their life, they were bored and lonely. For years I tried to change them, to help them lead a more productive life.

It Did Not Work
Guess what, it didn't work. I just ended up being frustrated, until I realized that I couldn't change them until they changed themselves.

As much as we want to, we all need to understand you truly cannot change other people.

Think About This
Think of a time when you tried to change a personal habit. As we have absolute control over how we think, you would assume changing a habit is easy. As we all know, it is not.

Stop and consider how difficult it is for us to try and change other people when we have no control over their thoughts.

To draw on the wisdom in an old saying, "You cannot change other people, you can only change yourself." If you want others to change, then you must change.

Whether it is the behaviour of a child, a boss, a co-worker, a friend, or a spouse you are the one who must change. You can change the way you express your feelings towards the behaviour.

Or, you can change your reaction to the behaviour. In some cases, you may have to change by accepting the behaviour.

The Point Is This
You have control over you and that is the only person you can change. When you realize this you will save yourself a lot of frustration.

Remember: you can change YOU and only YOU.

Common Forum/Request/Suggestions / Be grateful for what you have
« on: December 14, 2014, 10:34:01 AM »

Ingratitude closes people’s hearts towards you. It also reveals whether you are an optimist or a pessimist. Since pessimists concentrate on the dark side of life, they tend not to notice the good that is there and therefore fail to thank God and people for the good that the latter have done to them. As they concentrate on the negative they fail to see the upcoming opportunities and often miss them.

I believe that all of us were created equal in the presence of God and each of us has enough opportunities to become a success in life. There are a number of steps that we have to follow. I hope my thoughts on life helped you figure those out.


There comes a time when you must stand alone.

You must feel confident enough within yourself to follow your own dreams.

You must be willing to make sacrifices.

You must be capable of changing and rearranging your priorities so that your final goal can be achieved.

Sometimes, familiarity and comfort need to be challenged.

There are times when you must take a few extra chances and create your own realities.

Be strong enough to at least try to make your life better.

Be confident enough that you won't settle for a compromise just to get by.

Appreciate yourself by allowing yourself the opportunities to grow, develop, and find your true sense of purpose in this life.

Don't stand in someone else's shadow when it's your sunlight that should lead the way.

Just Like No Coffee!
To me, without reading and thinking and bringing a motivational quotation into my conscious thought patterns, is the same as not having my morning cup of tea or coffee - if I don't have it, there is something missing.

And, like building a house from the ground up, I find that the cumulative effect of digesting an inspirational message first thing in the morning continues to allow me to build a foundation of meaningfulness and positive building materials for the entire day.

I was recently reminded of the power of these quotations when I read the following quote one April day: "There is no giant step that does it. It's a lot of little steps."

One Step At A Time
We do not develop anything with one giant step. No matter who you are, or what you do, each one of us had had to take a lot of individual steps to accomplish a task, a job, a career, or even a hobby. Each step serves to move us forward even if it is an inch at a time. The people who have succeeded in any walk of life have had to take steps over and over again to get where they are whether that being a doctor who learned to apply their skills after many years of training. Did they take one giant step and suddenly were a qualified doctor - no.

And, so it is the same when you are developing a meaningful and full life. We need to proceed as if we are constructing a ship, or a house, or creating a work of art. We do not become masters of our own destiny in a day, nor do we develop the kind of outlook where we can turn negatives into positives, or disappointments into valuable lessons of life, or change adversity into opportunities.

One Last Comment
You cannot go through life without going through hardship, pain, failures, or challenges, but, you also cannot turn your life to point in the right direction unless you have a constant supply of positive influences as you can easily find through a daily inspirational or motivational quote. Start now and keep building.

If you don't start adopting a positive pattern into your life, it is even more challenging to deal with life's issues as they arise, and they will. There is no lack of challenges to face - they always seem to crop up without warning just like there is never a good time for a flat tire. Be prepared - always start your day armed with positive thoughts and refresh your thoughts throughout the day just like you refresh your coffee or tea.

WOW...great :)
