EASY TO SAY, DIFFICULT TO DO


"Happy is the man who has broken the chains which hurt the mind, and has given up worrying once and for all."

Ovid (BC 43-AD 18) Roman poet.

Not sure what Ovid had to worry about but whatever it was it couldn't have been much.

If it had he'd have known his advice is easy to give, very difficult to follow.

Difficult, not impossible.

You can manage what you choose to worry about, how you manage your fears.

And the more you do the better at doing it you become.

EITHER WAY, THE CHOICE IS YOURS


"If you've made up your mind you can do something, you're absolutely right. If you've made up your mind you can't do something, you're absolutely right."

Unknown


Interesting isn't it?

Your success or failure both begin with the same choice.

HOW HIGH WILL YOU THINK?


"Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think."

Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) British politician/author.

But there are no limits on how high you can think, just what you think.

Fail for reasons other than you never had the thought, or never acted on the thought you did have.

HERE'S WHERE YOU START


"It's not about ideas, it's about making ideas happen."

Scott Belsky
American entrepreneur/founder Behance, Inc.

Ideas are a dime a dozen, maybe a quarter adjusted for inflation.

Planning, execution, hard work make the idea worth something.

EXCUSE ME, PLEASE CONSIDER THIS IS YOU HAVE A MOMENT


"Politeness and civility are the best capital ever invested in business."

P.T. Barnum 19th century American showman/businessman

The least invested and not just in business.

We all could and should be so much more civil in all aspects of our lives.

Check your anger, you will get back what you give.
