Life and Achievement

Too often, we look beyond the primary reward to lesser accomplishments that we hope to achieve. Throughout the entire effort, make sure that you are committed, not to the struggle, but to the victory. If the struggle itself is so all encompassing, it is easy to forget what you are actually striving to achieve. We become overwhelmed with the effort and loose sight of the opportunities that lay within our grasp. When we are mindful of what we are working so hard to complete, we should also remember to celebrate the accomplishment and success of the completion. All too often we do simply by dusting our hands and walking away from the site of the struggle. Although the struggle is not always worth the effort, it becomes incumbent on you to choose the right reasons and the right struggles. It becomes a matter of setting which priorities are important to you in all aspects of your life. By choosing them wisely, you self-direct your progress and make decisions which enable you to focus on the outcome. It becomes important to know who you should involve other than yourself and rally their participation. Focus your eyes on the prize. Your focus will drive a successful outcome.

SOME GREAT QUOTES

"Things that seem to happen more frequently in the future than they did in the past." - Anonymous

"Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten." - B. F. Skinner, New Scientist, May 21, 1964

"Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises." - Samuel Butler

"There is nothing more profitable for a person than to take good counsel with oneself; for even if the event turns out contrary to one's hopes, still one's decision was right." - Herodotus

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

“Nothing limits achievement like small thinking; nothing expands possibilities like unleashed imagination." - William Arthur Ward
