yoda

Try not. Do or do not. There is no try. ~Yoda

If you are chasing your dreams you need to go for it, not just ‘try’ to reach it.   Give it your all.  You might exceed your expectations if you focus on doing not on trying.

Quotes on Courage

Here are some quotes I like on courage.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
Steve Jobs

How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough to mend them.
Benjamin Franklin

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Dale Carnegie

Courage means to keep working a relationship, to continue seeking solutions to difficult problems, and to stay focused during stressful periods.
Denis Waitley

Wise Owl

Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
Alfred Lord Tennyson

Wisdom is the accumulation of knowledge.  Knowledge is understanding that is gained from experience.  As you go about your daily activities do you seek knowledge?  If so, do you then look at how it can add to the knowledge you already have, will it change your perception or opinion of a situation?  This is how you take knowledge and gain wisdom.  When you have started to gain wisdom you can then apply your knowledge to new situations and solve challenges that previously seemed insurmountable.  The first step is to learn from your daily experiences.  Keep learning each and every day.

Quote for Nov 28th

thank you in letterpress typeMake it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.
Ralph Marston

Growth

Growing KnowledgeWithout continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
Benjamin Franklin

All of us have a great capacity for growth and improvement.  We get the choice of doing something with that capacity or not.  Life is a journey and each day represents a new opportunity to move forward towards are dreams.   Success is a result of action and great success is a result of determined and focused action.  Keep moving forward no matter what happens.  An obstacle only stops progress if you let it, find a way around it to reach your goals.

What are you doing today to grow your skills and abilities?
