There may be nothing wrong with you, The way you live, the work you do, But I can very plainly see Exactly what is wrong with me. It isn’t that I’m indolent, Or dodging duty by intent; I work as hard as anyone, And yet I get so little done, The morning goes, the noon is here, Before I know, the night is near, And all around me, I regret, Are things I haven’t finished yet. If I could just get organized! I oftentimes have realized Not all that matters is the man; The man must also have a plan.
With you, there may be nothing wrong But here’s my trouble right along; I do the things that don’t amount To very much, of no account, That really seem important though And let a lot of matters go. I nibble this, I nibble that, But never finish what I’m at. I work as hard as anyone And yet, I get so little done, I’d do so much you’d be surprised, If I could just get organized!
From Failure to Success
Force yourself to act enthusiastic, and you’ll become enthusiastic.
One of the greatest satisfactions in life comes from getting things done and knowing that you have done them to the best of your ability. If you are having trouble getting yourself organized, if you want to increase your ability to think, and do things in the order of their importance, remember there is only one way: Take more time to think and do things in the order of their importance. Set aside one day as self-organization day, or a definite period each week. The whole secret of freedom from anxiety over not having enough time lies not in working more hours, but in the proper planning of hours.
“Make a high and holy resolve that you will double the amount of enthusiasm that you have been putting into your work and into your life. If you carry out that resolve, you will probably double your income, and double your happiness.”
“To Become Enthusiastic, Act Enthusiastic.”
How I Raised Myself From Failure to Success in Selling
To All the Mothers, whether near or far, here or gone…we keep you in our hearts, unconditionally.
For you gave me life, the greatest gift of all, and no matter what may be… you will always have a special place in my heart of hearts for eternity…I love you, Mom.
My Mother Kept A Garden
My Mother kept a garden, a garden of the heart, She planted all the good things that gave my life its start. She turned me to the sunshine and encouraged me to dream, Fostering and nurturing the seeds of self-esteem… And when the winds and rain came, she protected me enough- But not too much because she knew I’d need to stand up strong and tough. Her constant good example always taught me right from wrong- Markers for my pathway that will last a lifetime long. I am my Mother’s garden. I am her legacy- And I hope today she feels the love reflected back from me.
There are not enough definitions of what a Winner is.
We get so wrapped up in the typical ones that the more subtle ones go unnoticed.
It is not always the person that gets the focus, the attention, or the accolades. It may take a little thought to see them, but they are right there, all around us, competing every single day, maybe even every single minute. We may not see what they are competing against, but they do.
And these amazing people, these Winners, focus on these challenges and they smash them out of their way. They do things that we should be in awe of, but we never pay attention.
And the most amazing thing is that they do not care what we think. They do not care if we notice. They do not care if they are ever recognized for what they do. Because they have transcended our narrow definition of a Winner and created their own.
