Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change.
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Reinhold Niebuhr

 

Your Dreams can come True, if you pursue them

Dreams do come true, if you only wish hard enough.
Wishing followed by decisive action will lead you to success.
You can have anything in life you desire if you will sacrifice for it.
You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true.
The achievement of your goal is assured the moment you commit yourself to it.
If you have the desire, you have the power.
Go after your dreams with enthusiasm and believe in your eventual success.
You can live your dreams.

 

Success is your Choice

Your success is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of your choice.
It is not something you wait for, but rather something you achieve with effort over time.
Things don't turn up in this world until you turn them up.
You can choose to be lazy or you can choose to be ambitious.
Stop to think about your choice again.
You always do your own choosing.
When you realize what you really want,

it stops you from chasing rainbows and puts you to work digging gold.
Decide now that you really want to achieve your goals.
Doors open when you're honest with yourself.
If you really want to succeed in this world,

look for the circumstances you want, and, if you can't find them, make them.
Your opportunities for success are all around you.
If you look hard enough, you will find them.
The great opportunity in your life is where you are right now.
Every situation, properly perceived, can become an opportunity for you.
First say to yourself what you would be, then do what you have to do.
Success is right in front of you.

 

Expect Success, and it is yours

Set your goals high.

You'll find that when you expect good things to happen,

strangely enough, they will happen.

Your expectation energizes your goals and gives them momentum.

Your life will always respond to your outlook.

You must first expect to succeed if you want to succeed.

And you can't expect to succeed beyond your wildest expectations

unless you begin with some pretty wild expectations.

The dreams you choose to believe in come to be.

When you believe something good can happen, it does.

Success is a matter of expectation.

 

Success Starts with a Beginning


Everyone who got where they are had to begin where they were.
Your opportunity for success is where you are right now.
To attain success or to reach your goal, don't worry about having all the answers in advance.
You just need to have a clear idea of the goal.
Don't procrastinate when faced with a difficult problem.
Break those problems into parts, and handle one part at a time.
Develop a bias toward action.
You can make something happen, today.
Break your big plan for success into small steps and take the first step right away.
You climb the highest mountain one step at a time.

 

Success Begins in your Mind.


Your mind sets your limits.
If you believe that you can do something, you can do it.
You must believe in it one hundred percent.
What you believe yourself to be, you are.
Your self image prescribes the limits for the accomplishment of your goals.
It prescribes the "area of the possible" for you.
Self-esteem is the strongest single factor in prosperity:

believing you can do it, believing you deserve it, believing you will get it.
If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success.
The feelings must come first from within you.
If you actually feel rich, if you have a deep inner conviction that you will always have all that you need, it will be so.
It's in your mind.
What you see is what you get.

 

Act on your Dreams

You make your own opportunities.

Your future is not a matter of chance, it's a matter of choice.

It's not something you wait for, it's something you pursue.

Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities.

Seize common occasions and make them great.

Your opportunities sometimes come disguised in the form of misfortune;

or temporary defeat.

Start today, right where you are.

Distant fields always look greener.

Golden opportunities are all around you.

You can live your dreams.

What you do tell everyone who you are

It is not your position in life but your disposition that determines your success.

What happens to you is less significant than what happens within you.

You reveal yourself to the world by your behavior.

Recognize that all things are difficult before they are easy

and it will change your outlook on so many things.

The thoughts you have chosen have brought you to where you are today.

Change your thoughts and you change your actions.

Change your actions and you are on the road to success.

You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.

 

Dreams you Believe In Come True

Life is largely a matter of expectation.

In order to succeed, you must expect to succeed.

So, set your goals high.

Begin with some wild expectations and you'll succeed beyond your wildest expectations.
When you expect things to happen, strangely enough, they do happen.

Expectation will energize your goals and give them momentum.

When you believe something good can happen, it does.

Your life will respond to your outlook.

 

You can be what you imagine

Picture yourself in your minds eye as having already achieved your goal.

See yourself doing the things you'll be doing when you've reached your goal.

Your imagination is literally the workshop wherein all your plans are fashioned.

When you visualize your goals you get your subconscious

to work toward making your mental pictures come true.

Many peak performers use the skill of mental rehearsal or visualization.

They mentally run through important events before they happen.

Know what you want out of life.

Sense it multi-dimensionally before you have it.

See it, taste it, smell it, and imagine the sounds and emotions associated with your goal.
You can pre-live it in your mind before you have it.

This sharp sensory vision will become a powerful driving force in your life.

See the things you want as already yours.

 

Your Willingness to Act is the First Step to Success

If you want to be successful, you can start anytime.
Don't make the mistake of doing nothing because you can only do a little.
Do what you can do.
Remember, it's your attitude at the beginning of any difficult task which,

more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.
The worst thing you can do is not to try, to be aware of what you want and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized, and never knowing.
To reach a port, you must sail.
You must sail, not lie at anchor.
You must sail, not drift.
A journey of a thousand miles, begins with one step.

 

Real Success is Achieved when you Like What You Do


No one can succeed in any endeavor that they don't like.
If you don't love something, then don't do it.
Your chances of success are directly proportional

to the degree of pleasure you derive from what you do.
Do something that you have a deep personal interest in.
Do something you'd enjoy spending twelve to fifteen hours a day working at,

and the rest of the time thinking about.
Don't set compensation as your goal.
Find work you like, and the compensation will follow.
Work is not your punishment.
It's your reward, your strength, and your pleasure.
Work is love made visible.

 

Get Ready for Success.

First impressions are the ones that last.
Don't force people to have to look twice to find out who you are.
Success becomes second nature to people with good habits.
Bad habits make it easy to fail.
When each day has a purpose and a structure,

you are controlling your day and not being controlled by it.
Success comes when you're ready.

 

Service is the Essence of Success

No one achieves success without being of service.
Leadership is action, not position.
All successful people became successful

because they gave some talent or ability in the service of others.
No matter how small your talent, you too can contribute in some way to others.
You too can become successful.
Everyone has to be someone to someone to be anyone.

 

Life is What you Make of It


No one can cheat you out of ultimate success but you.
You must choose the thoughts and actions that will lead you on to success.
You must set your own standards.
Nothing happens by itself.
It will all come your way, once you understand that you have to make it come your way,

by your own exertions.
Only you can hold yourself back, or stand in your own way.
Only you can help yourself.
Not in time, place, or circumstances, but in you lies success
.

 

Look at things as they can be

There is no such thing as no chance.
Don't think about the things you can't do.
Think about the things you can do.
No matter what the level of your ability,

you have more potential than you can ever develop in a lifetime.
You have powers you never dreamed of.
You can do things you never thought you could do.
There are no limitations in what you can do.
Your range of available choices right now is limitless.
Never say never.

 

How many times?

How many times have you set out to change the world,

and then grown discouraged at the first stumble?

How many goals have you set and just plain forgotten?

How many times have you been stopped in your tracks by the opinions of others?

How many times have you produced excuses instead of results?

How many more times will you settle for less that you're capable of becoming?

Aren't you ready to really live your life for everything it's worth?

This moment, right now, is connected directly to your future.

You only need to live with passion, purpose and commitment for a single moment,

and then for the next moment, and the next, one after another.

Soon you will be well on your way to true achievement of anything you desire.

You can completely control what you're doing right now.

Try it and see how powerful it feels.

You are not at the mercy or excuses or circumstances.

The challenges are real, to be sure, but are no match for the power of your continued focused effort. 

One moment at a time, one moment after another,

will take you all the way to your brilliant, joyful future.

Any moment will do for a start. Make it this one.

 Ralph Marston

Accept Change with A Smile...

Sooner or later comes a crisis in your life,

and how you meet it determines your future happiness and success.
Since the beginning of time, everyone has been called upon to meet such a crisis.
A closer look will show you that most "crisis situations"

are opportunities to either advance or stay where you are.
Indeed most changes in your life will take place out of either "inspiration" or "desperation".
Whatever comes your way, give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
Your personal growth is the process of responding positively to change.
A precious stone cannot be polished without friction, nor humanity perfected without trials.

 

Work is Love Made Visible


You'll never achieve real success unless you like what you are doing.
Your chances for success will be directly proportional to the

degree of pleasure you derive from what you do.
If you have a job you hate, face the fact squarely and get out.
If you enjoy what you do, you'll be successful.
If you don't enjoy what you do, you will not be successful.
Your success in any occupation depends on your enjoyment.
Loving your work will make all the difference.
Success in its highest and noblest form calls for peace of mind,

enjoyment, and happiness which comes only when you find the work that you like best.
You don't pay the price for success.
You enjoy the price for success.
Work is reward, not punishment.

 

Reality is Something You Rise Above

You are more important than your problems.
You are bigger than anything that can happen to you.
Courage is a special kind of knowledge: the knowledge of how to fear what ought to be feared and how not to fear what ought not to be feared.
True courage is the result of reasoning.
A brave mind is always impregnable.
Great things are accomplished when you believe that what's inside of you is superior to your circumstances.
What you have outside you counts less than what you have inside you.

 

There is NO Failure Except in NOT Trying

You cannot be beaten at anything, until you quit in your own mind.
There is no defeat except from within.
You have no really insurmountable barrier except your own inherent weakness of purpose.
Consider yourself on a very long journey.
Sustain your personal vision of success.
In the end, you can only fail if you do not try.
Success is a road paved with perseverance.
The odds are with you if you keep on trying.
Winning isn't everything, but wanting to is.
If you've got the nerve to make it, you will.

 

There is a GOOD Side in Every Situation

 Any experience can be transformed into something of value.
Everything depends on the way you look at things.
You cannot have the success without the failures.
What are stumbling blocks and defeat before you can be stepping stones to victory if you remain determined.
In all your adversities there lies the seeds of equivilant advantages.
In every defeat there is a lesson showing you how to win the next time.
View your problems as opportunities.
When it is dark enough you can see the stars.

 

You Cannot Think In One Way and Act In Another

When you direct your thoughts properly, you can control your emotions.
When you do the wrong thing, knowing it is wrong, you do so because you haven't developed the habit of effectively controlling or neutralizing strong inner urges that tempt you, or because you have established the wrong habits and don't know how to eliminate them effectively.
Habit is stronger then reason.
Are you controlled by your thoughts, or are you controling your thoughts.
Resistance is thought transformed into feelings.
Change the thought that creates the resistance, and there is no more resistance.
If you are ruled by your mind you are a king, if by your body a slave.

 

Your DREAMS are your Possibilities

 

You will become as small as your controlling desire, or as great as your dominant aspiration.
Have the courage to follow your dreams and you'll find the success you seek.
You have to think big to be big.
Big thinking always precedes big achievement.
The more you can dream, the more you can do.
You are the one that can stretch your own horizon.

 

Honesty is Still the Best Policy


Before you lies two paths --- honesty and dishonesty.
The shortsighted embark on the dishonest path, the wise on the honest one.
When you help others you help yourself, when you hurt others you are hurting yourself.
Character overshadows money, and trust rises above fame.
Sooner or later everyone sits down to a banquet of consequences.
It is better to fail with honor then succeed by fraud.
There is no right way to do something wrong.

 

Every Winner has Scars

Life is a classroom in which you are being tested, tried, and passed.
You can't predict what will happen to you.
But you can decide what happens in you, how you take it, and what you do with it.
The real test of living is how to take each experience and make it a thing of worth and beauty.
Everything you go through has some value.
The highest qualities of success and character must be earned.

 

If I Really Cared

If I really cared...

I'd look you in the eyes when you talk to me;
I'd think about what you are saying rather than what I am going to say next;
I'd hear your feelings as well as your words.

If I really cared...

I'd listen without defending;
I'd hear without deciding whether you're right or wrong;
I'd ask you why, not just how and when and where.

If I really cared..

.I'd allow you to know me;
I'd tell you my hopes, my dreams, my hurts;
I'd tell you where I've blown it and when I've made it;

If I really cared...

I'd laugh with you but not at you;
I'd talk with you and not to you;
and I'd know when it's time to do neither.

If I really cared...

I would't climb over your walls;
I'd hang around until you let me in the gate.
I would not unlock your secrets;
I'd wait until you handed me the key.

If I really cared...

I'd put my scripts away,
and leave my solutions at home.
The performance would end.
We'd be ourselves.

 

The Squirrel

 

 

I looked up and saw a squirrel jump from one tree to another. He appeared to be aiming for a limb so far out of reach that the leap looked like suicide. He missed - but landed safe and unconcerned, on a branch several feet lower. Then he climbed to his goal, and all was well.

An old man sitting on a bench said, "Funny, I've seen hundreds of 'em jump like that, especially when there are dogs around and they can't come to the ground. A lot of 'em miss, but I've never seen any hurt in trying." Then he chuckled. "I guess they've got to risk it if they don't want to spend their lives in one tree."

I thought, "A squirrel takes a chance - have I less nerve than a squirrel?"

Since then, whenever I have to choose between risking a new venture or hanging back, I hear the old man on the park bench saying, "They've got to risk it if they don't want to spend their lives in one tree."

So I've jumped again and again. And in jumping I've learned why the squirrels so often do it: it's fun.

Oscar Schisgall

Footprints

Khalil Gibran

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with God. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonging to him, and the other to God.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life!

This really bothered him and he questioned God about it. "God, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

God replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

It's up to you

One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise your spirits,
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true,
One life can make the difference,
You see, it's up to you!

 

A Smile

 

A SMILE costs nothing, but it creates much.
It enriches those who receive
without impoverishing those who give.
It happens in a flash,
and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None are so rich that they can get along without it,
and none are so poor but are richer for a smile.
It creates happiness in the home,
fosters goodwill in a business,
and is the countersign of friends.
It is rest to the weary,
daylight to the discouraged,
sunshine to the sad,
and nature's best antidote for trouble.
It cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen,
for it is something that is no earthly good to anybody
till it is given away.
And if it ever happens
that some people should be too tired to give you a SMILE,
why not leave one of yours?
For nobody needs a SMILE so much
as those who have none left to give.

Success is the Result of Well Directed Energy


The first rule of success, and one that supersedes all others, is to have energy.
It is important to know how to concentrate it.
Focus your energy on important things instead of frittering it away on trivia.
Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets.
Focus the full power of all you are on what you have a burning desire to achieve.
Gather in your resources, rally all your faculties, Marshall all your energies, focus all your capacities upon mastering your field of endeavor.
You must be single minded.
Drive for the thing you have decided upon.
The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus.

The Seed of your Success is in your Imagination

 
Your imagination can show you how to turn your possibilities into reality.
Visualize all the things that you want.
Make your mental blue print, and begin to build.
Make every thought, every fact, that comes into your mind pay you a profit.
Make those mental images work and produce for you.
Think of things not as they are but as they might be.
Don't merely dream, create.
The will to succeed springs from the knowledge that you can succeed.
