Ignorance is not bliss. It is misery, tragedy, poverty, and sickness. If ignorance were bliss, how come not more people are happy? If a little knowledge is dangerous, so is a lot of ignorance which leads to pettiness, fear, dogmatism, egotism, and prejudice.
Wisdom is nothing more than dispelling ignorance. We live in an information age. It is estimated that the amount of knowledge is doubling every year. With information so readily available, it is easy to dispel ignorance.
It is sad to see that we are taught everything but the most essential things. We are taught the three R’s reading, writing, arithmetic , but what good is intellectual education without understanding human dignity and compassion? Schools are a fountain of knowledge: some students come to drink , some to sip and others just to gargle. Common sense Education and knowledge without common sense has little meaning.
Common sense is the ability to see things as they are and do them as they ought to be done. We are born with five senses touch, taste, sight, smell, and hearing. But successful people have a sixth sense common sense.
Common sense is gained in spite of, not necessarily as a result of, education. The best education without common sense is worthless. An abundance of common sense is called wisdom. The company hired Bill and within a year he got a raise. This caused resentment in John and he went to his boss to talk about it.
The boss said, “You are still cutting the same number of trees you were cutting five years ago. We are a result-oriented company and would be happy to give you a raise if your productivity goes up.
The boss told John to go talk to Bill. Bill answered, “After every tree l cut, l take a break for two minutes and sharpen my axe. When was the last time you sharpened your axe? My question is, when was the last time you sharpened your axe? Past glory and education don’t do it. We have to continuously sharpen the axe. Feed Your Mind Just like our bodies need good food every day, our minds need good thoughts every day.
The key words in the preceding sentence are good food and good thoughts. If we feed our body with junk food and our mind with bad thoughts, we will have both a sick body and mind. We need to feed our mind with the pure and the positive to stay on track. Through constant practice and exposure, we can learn the principles that make a person successful just like we learn to play basketball. Knowledge is Power We hear every day that knowledge is power. Not really.
Knowledge is information. It is potential power and it becomes power only when it is acted upon. What is the difference between a person who cannot read and a person who can but does not read? Not a whole lot. Learning is like eating food. It is not how much you eat that matters, what counts is how much you digest.
Knowledge is potential power, wisdom is real power. Education takes many forms, it is not just grades and a degree. If you think education is expensive, try ignorance. Education is a Reservoir Positive thinkers are like athletes who, through practice, build an inner reservoir of stamina that they draw on in competition. If they don’t practice, they have nothing to draw on. Similarly, positive thinkers regularly build a reserve of positive attitude by constantly feeding their mind on the pure, the powerful and the positive on a daily basis.
Positive thinkers are not fools and they are not going through life with blinders. They are winners who recognize their limitations, but focus on their strengths. Losers, on the other hand, recognize their strengths but focus on their weaknesses. Self-esteem is the way we feel about ourselves. When we feel good within, our performance goes up, our relationships improve both at home and at work. The world looks nicer. What is the reason? There is a direct correlation between feeling and behavior.
If you want to build positive self-esteem quickly, one of the fastest ways is to do something for others who cannot repay you in cash or kind.
In just a few weeks, I learned more than l had learned in years. After attending my program for two weeks ;one of the inmates stopped me and said, “Shiv, l want to talk to you. I’m going to be released from prison in a couple of weeks. He thought for a while and then said that he felt good about himself. Tell me specifically what behavior has changed? He told me he read his Bible every day since l started the program. He replied that he felt comfortable with himself and others which he hadn’t felt before.
Then l asked him the same question again and he gave me the same answer. For the third time l asked him the same question What are you going to do when you leave jail? At this point, in an angry tone, he said, l am going to be a contributing member of society. Earlier he had said, l am going to try to be” and now he said “I am going to be. Either we do it or we don’t. The word “trying” keeps the door open for him to come back to jail. Another inmate, who was listening in on our conversation, asked, “Shiv, what do you get paid to do all this?
He then asked, “Why do you come here? In a nutshell, what you put into the system, you always get back, and most times more than you can ever put in. But you don’t put it in with the desire to get something back. Another inmate said, “What anybody does is their business. When people take drugs, it is none of your business.
Why don’t you leave them alone? If you can guarantee that when someone takes drugs, and when they get behind the wheel of a car and have an accident, the only thing they will ever hit is a tree, l will compromise. But if you cannot guarantee that when they take drugs and have an accident, then you or your kids or l or my kids could be dead under the wheels, you better believe it is my business.
People choose to ignore the spirit and derive the meaning that is convenient to them. Such people have tied this phrase to selfishness and I’m sure that was not the intent. These people forget that we don’t live in isolation. What you do affects me and what I do affects you. We are connected. We have to realize that we are sharing this planet and we must learn to behave responsibly. There are two kinds of people in this world–takers and givers.
Takers eat well and givers sleep well. Givers have high self-esteem, a positive attitude, and they serve society. By serving society, I do not mean a run-of-the-mill pseudo leader-turned-politician who serves himself by pretending to serve others. As human beings, we all have the need to receive and take. But a healthy personality with high self-esteem is one that not only has its need to take but also to give.
A man was washing his new car when his neighbor asked him, “When did you get the car? Step 6: Stay Away from Negative Influences Today’s teenagers learn from adult behavior and the media. They face peer pressure. Peer pressure is not just limited to teenagers, it is also prevalent in adults. It shows a lack of self-esteem when people do not have the courage to say “No, thank you,” and stay away from negative influences: What are the negative influences?
Negative People An eagle’s egg was placed in the nest of a prairie chicken. The egg hatched and the little eagle grew up thinking it was a prairie chicken.
The eagle did what the prairie chickens did. It scratched in the dirt for seeds. It clucked and cackled. It never flew more than a few feet because that is what the prairie chickens did. One day he saw an eagle flying gracefully and majestically in the open sky. He asked the prairie chickens: “What is that beautiful bird?
He is an outstanding bird, but you cannot fly like him because you are just a prairie chicken. He lived the life of and died a prairie chicken, depriving himself of his heritage because of his lack of vision. What a waste!
He was born to win, but was conditioned to lose. The same thing is true of most people. The unfortunate part of life is as Oliver Wendall Holmes said, “Most people go to their graves, with music still in them.
If you want to soar like an eagle, you have to learn the ways of an eagle. If you associate with achievers, you will become one. If you associate with thinkers, you will become one. If you associate with givers, you will become one. If you associate with complainers, you will become one. Whenever people succeed in life, petty people will take cracks at them and try to pull them down.
When you refuse to fight petty people, you win. In martial arts, they teach that when someone takes a crack at you, instead of blocking you should step away.
Even to block you require energy. Why not use it more productively? Similarly, in order to fight petty people, you have to come down to their level. This is what they want, because now you are one of them. Don’t let negative people drag you down. Remember, a person’s character is not only judged by the company he or she keeps but also by the company he or she avoids. If you don’t drink, they look at you as if there is something wrong.
Their motto is: “It doesn’t matter how bad your English is, as long as your Scotch is good. Drinking and smoking are glamorized today. It all starts with the first time. If you ask people why they consume alcohol or take drugs, they will give you a host of reasons, such as: to celebrate; to have fun; to forget problems; to relax; to experiment; to impress it is cool to drink ; to be fashionable; to mingle; for business purposes.
People want to conform to peer pressure. I am amazed at the way peer pressure compels with phrases such as: “Aren’t you my friend? Drinking and driving cost lives. Pornography Pornography is nothing short of dehumanizing women and children. Eighty-six percent of rapists admit to regular use of pornography, with 57 percent admitting imitation of pornography scenes when committing sex crimes Dr. William Marshall, What about the sick people who buy it?
Negative Movies and Television Programs Today’s kids are learning their attitudes and values more from television and movies than from anywhere else. It is estimated that in the United States, by the time a youngster gets out of high school, he has watched more than 20, hours of television, witnessed 15, murders, and watched , alcohol-related commercials. No wonder the crime rate is so high!
Soap operas glamorize premarital and extramarital sex. No wonder commitments are lacking in relationships and divorce rates are high. Impressionable viewers set their standards and benchmarks based on what they see and hear in the media. And no matter who it is, we are all impressionable to varying degrees. Profanity Using profanities show a lack of self-control and discipline. Rock Music The lyrics of some hit songs are obscene.
We can be subconsciously influenced by the music we hear and the performance we watch. Step 7: Learn to Like the Things That Need to be Done Some things need to be done whether we like them or not; for example, mothers caring for their young. They may not be fun and games, and may even be painful. But if we learn to like the task, the impossible becomes possible. Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible. After a good night’s sleep we are relaxed and our subconscious is receptive.
It sets the tone for the day, and puts us in the right frame of mind to make every day a positive day. In order to bring about change, we need to make a conscious effort Andre committed to make positive thoughts and behavior part of our lives. Practice having positive thoughts and behavior daily until they become a habit. William James of Harvard University said, “If you are going to change your life, you need to start immediately and do it flamboyantly.
The key word is preparation. Be a good finder. Make a habit of doing it now. Develop an attitude of gratitude. Get into a continuous education program. Build positive self-esteem. Stay away from negative influences. Learn to like the things that need to be done. Start your day with a positive. Write these action steps down on a 3-by-5 index card and read them every day for the next 21 days. For the next 30 minutes, answer the following questions.
Make a list of the things you would like to change about yourself. Then list the benefits to you and others of each change. Finally establish a timetable and commit yourself to make the changes. It is the result of our attitude and our attitude is a choice. Hence success is a matter of choice and not chance. Most crackpots keep waiting for a jackpot. But can that bring success? A priest was driving by and saw an exceptionally beautiful farm.
He stopped his car to appreciate the bountiful crop. The farmer was riding on his tractor and saw the priest at the corner. He drove towards the Priest and when he got there the priest said, “God has blessed you with a beautiful farm. You should be grateful for it. The farmer replied, “Yes, God has blessed me with a beautiful farm and I am grateful for it, but you should have seen this farm when God had the whole farm to himself!
How come one man goes through life crossing one hurdle after another, accomplishing his goals while another struggles and gets nowhere? If the answer to these two questions can become part of the curriculum, it could revolutionize the educational system. The uncommon man seeks opportunity, whereas the common man seeks security. We need to keep our minds on what we want, not on what we don’t want.
A lot of research has gone into the subject of success and failure. All that we need to do is learn our lessons from history. When we study the life histories of successful people, we find that they have certain qualities in common no matter which period of history they lived in.
Success leaves clues and if we identify and adopt the qualities of successful people, we shall be successful. Similarly, there are characteristics common in all failures. If we avoid those characteristics, then we shall not be failures.
Success is no mystery, but simply the result of consistently applying some basic principles. The reverse is just as true: Failure is simply a result of making a few mistakes repeatedly. All of this might sound too simplistic, but the fact is that most truths are very simple. I’m not saying they are easy, but they certainly are simple. What makes a person successful?
How do we recognize success? To some people, success might mean wealth. To others, it is recognition, good health, good family, happiness, satisfaction, and peace of mind. What this really tells us is that success is subjective.
It can mean different things to different people. The definition that I feel summarizes “success” well is: Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal. Earl Nightingale Let’s look at these definitions carefully. We never arrive. After we reach one goal, we go on to the next and the next and the next. Outside forces cannot make me feel successful. I have to feel it within myself. It is internal not external. Which way are we heading?
Positive or negative? Worthiness determines the quality of the journey. That is what gives meaning and fulfillment. Success without fulfillment is empty. Because they give us a sense of direction. Success does not mean being accepted by everyone. There are some groups I would not want to be accepted by, out of choice.
I would rather be criticized by fools than appreciated by unsavory characters. I define success as a manifestation of good luck that results from inspiration, aspiration, desperation and perspiration; generally in that sequence.
Success and happiness go hand in hand. Success is getting what you want and happiness is wanting what you get! Existence alone is not success! It is a lot more! Do more than exist — live Do more than touch — feel Do more than look — observe Do more than read — absorb Do more than hear — listen Do more than listen — understand John H.
Striving for perfection is neurotic; striving for excellence is progress, because there is nothing that can’t be done better or improved. All that we need is a little edge. The winning horse in the races wins 5-to-1 or to Do you think he is five or ten times faster than the other horses?
He may only be faster by a fraction, by a nose, but the rewards are five or ten times greater. Is it fair? Who cares? It doesn’t matter. Those are the rules of the game. That is the way the game is played. The same is true in our lives. Successful people are not ten times smarter than the people who fail.
They may be better by a nose, but the rewards are ten times bigger. That is the winning edge! Triumphs don’t come without effort. A biology teacher was teaching his students how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. He told the students that in the next couple of hours, the butterfly would struggle to come out of the cocoon. But no one should help the butterfly. Then he left.
The students were waiting and it happened. The butterfly struggled to get out of the cocoon, and one of the students took pity on it and decided to help the butterfly out of the cocoon against the advice of his teacher.
He broke the cocoon to help the butterfly so it didn’t have to struggle anymore. But shortly afterwards the butterfly died. When the teacher returned, he was told what happened. He explained to this student that by helping the butterfly, he had actually killed it because it is a law of nature that the struggle to come out of the cocoon actually helps develop and strengthen its wings.
The boy had deprived the butterfly of its struggle and the butterfly died. Apply this same principle to our lives. Nothing worthwhile in life comes without a struggle. As parents we tend to hurt the ones we love most because we don’t allow them to struggle to gain strength.
We all have problems and we feel discouraged some time. Most people get disappointed; but winners don’t get disheartened. The answer is perseverance. An English proverb says, “A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner. We cannot run away from our problems. Only losers quit and give up. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
True success is measured by the feeling of knowing you have done a job well and have achieved your objective. Success is not measured by our position in life but by the obstacles we overcame to get there. Success in life is not determined by how we are doing compared with others, but by how we are doing compared with what we are capable of doing.
Successful people compete against themselves. They better their own record and keep improving constantly. Success is not measured by how high we go up in life but by how many times we bounce back when we fall down.
It is this bounce back ability that determines success. Tom Watson Sr. But people don’t see the failures. They only see one side of the picture and they say that person got lucky: “He must have been at the right place at the right time. This was a man who failed in business at the age of 21 ; was defeated in a legislative race at age 22; failed again in business at age 24; overcame the death of his sweetheart at age 26; had a nervous breakdown at age 27; lost a congressional race at age 34; lost a senatorial race at age 45; failed in an effort to become vice-president at age 47; lost a senatorial race at age 49; and was elected president of the United States at age This man was Abraham Lincoln.
Would you call him a failure? He could have quit. But to Lincoln, defeat was a detour and not a dead end. In , Lee De Forest, inventor of the triodes tube, was charged by the district attorney for using fraudulent means to mislead the public into buying stocks of his company by claiming that he could transmit the human voice across the Atlantic. He was publicly humiliated. Can you imagine where we would be without his invention? A New York Times editorial on December 10, , questioned the wisdom of the Wright Brothers who were trying to invent a machine, heavier than air, that would fly.
One week later, at Kitty Hawk, the Wright Brothers took their famous flight. He remembered his mother’s recipe and went out selling. How many doors did he have to knock on before he got his first order? It is estimated that he had knocked on more than a thousand doors before he got his first order. How many of us quit after three tries, ten tries, a hundred tries, and then we say we tried as hard as we could? As a young cartoonist, Walt Disney faced many rejections from newspaper editors, who said he had no talent.
One day a minister at a church hired him to draw some cartoons. Disney was working out of a small mouse infested shed near the church.
After seeing a small mouse, he was inspired. That was the start of Mickey Mouse. Successful people don’t do great things, they only do small things in a great way.
One day a partially deaf four year old kid came home with a note in his pocket from his teacher, “Your Tommy is too stupid to learn, get him out of the school.
Thomas Edison had only three months of formal schooling and he was partially deaf. Henry Ford forgot to put the reverse gear in the first car he made. Do you consider these people failures? They succeeded in spite of problems, not in the absence of them. But to the outside world, it appears as though they just got lucky. All success stories are stories of great failures.
The only difference is that every time they failed, they bounced back. This is called failing forward, rather than backward. You learn and move forward. Learn from your failure and keep moving. In , Thomas Edison, at age 67, lost his factory, which was worth a few million dollars, to fire.
It had very little insurance. No longer a young man, Edison watched his lifetime effort go up in smoke and said, “There is great value in disaster. All our mistakes are burnt up. Thank God we can start anew. Below are more examples of the failures of successful people: 1. Thomas Edison failed approximately 10, times while he was working on the light bulb. Henry Ford was broke at the age of Young Beethoven was told that he had no talent for music, but he gave some of the best music to the world.
Setbacks are inevitable in life. A setback can act as a driving force and also teach us humility. In grief you will find courage and faith to overcome the setback. We need to learn to become victors, not victims.
Fear and doubt short-circuit the mind. Ask yourself after every setback: What did I learn from this experience? Only then will you be able to turn a stumbling block into a stepping stone. If you like to win, but think you can’t, It’s almost a cinch you won’t. If you think you are outclassed, you are, You’ve got to think high to rise, You’ve got to be sure of yourself before You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go To the stronger and faster man, But sooner or later the man who wins Is the man who thinks he can. He cannot fly like a bird, can be killed by a tiny insect, cannot outrun a leopard, cannot swim like an alligator, cannot climb the tree like a monkey, doesn’t have the eye of an eagle, nor does he have the claws and teeth of a wild cat. Physically, man is helpless and defenseless. But nature is reasonable and kind.
Nature’s greatest gift to man is the ability to think. He can create his own environment, whereas animals adapt to their environment. Sadly, very few people use the greatest gift the ability to think to its full potential.
Failures are of two kinds: those who did and never thought and those who thought and never did. Going through life without using our ability to think is like shooting without aiming. Life is like a cafeteria.
You take’ your tray, select your food and pay at the other end. You can get anything you want as long as you are willing to pay the price. In a cafeteria, if you wait for people to serve you, you will wait forever.
Life is like that too. You make choices and pay the price. If life is full of choices, where is the question of compromises? Remember, even a compromise is a choice.
Let’s evaluate this. How is Life Full of Choices? When we eat too much, we make a choice to be overweight. When we drink too much, we make a choice to have a headache the next day. If you drink and drive, you make a choice to risk being killed or killing someone in an accident. When we ill treat people, we make a choice to be ill treated in return. When we don’t care about other people, we make a choice not to be cared for by other people.
Choices have consequences. We are free to make our choice but after we have chosen, the choice controls us. We have equal opportunity to be unequal. The choice is ours. Similarly, we can mold our lives into any shape we want.
How is Life Full of Compromises? Life is not just party and pleasure; it is also pain and despair. Unthinkable things happen. Sometimes everything turns upside down. Bad things happen to good people. Some things are beyond control, such as physical disability and birth defects. We cannot choose our parents or the circumstances of our birth. So if the ball bounced that way, sorry.
But what do we do from here; cry or take the ball and run? That is a choice we have to make. On a clear day, there are hundreds of boats sailing in all different directions in a lake.
How come? Even though the wind is blowing in one direction, the sailboats are going in different directions. What is the difference? It depends on the way the sail is set, and that is determined by the sailor. The same is true of our lives. We can’t choose the direction of the wind, but we can choose how we set the sail. We can choose our attitude even though we cannot always choose our circumstances.
The choice is either to act like a victor or a victim. It is not our position but our disposition that determines our destiny. It takes both rain and sunshine to create a rainbow. Our lives are no different.
There is happiness and sorrow. There is the good and the bad ; dark and bright spots. If we can handle adversity, it only strengthens us. We cannot control all the events that happen in our lives, but we can control how we deal with them. Richard Blechnyden wanted to promote Indian tea at the St. Louis World fair in It was very hot and no one wanted to sample his tea. Blechnyden saw that all the other iced drinks were doing flourishing business. It dawned on him to make his tea into an iced drink, mix in sugar and sell it.
He did and people loved it. That was the introduction of iced tea to the world. When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, we can react responsibly or resentfully. Human beings are not like an action which has no choice.
An action cannot decide whether to become a giant tree or to become food for the squirrels. Human beings have choices. If nature gives us a lemon, we have a choice: either cry or make lemonade. Desire The motivation to succeed comes from the burning desire to achieve a purpose. Napoleon Hill wrote, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve. Socrates told the young man to meet him near the river the next morning. They met. Socrates asked the young man to walk with him toward the river.
When the water got up to their neck, Socrates took the young man by surprise and ducked him into the water. The boy struggled to get out but Socrates was strong and kept him there until the boy started turning blue.
Socrates pulled his head out of the water and the first thing the young man did was to gasp and take a deep breath of air. Socrates asked, ‘What did you want the most when you were there? A burning desire is the starting point of all accomplishment. Just like a small fire cannot give much heat, a weak desire cannot produce great results.
Commitment Integrity and wisdom are the two pillars on which to build and keep commitments. This point is best illustrated by the manager, who told one of his staff members, “Integrity is keeping your commitment even if you lose money and wisdom is not to make such foolish commitments.
It is our decision what thoughts will dominate our lives. Success is not an accident. It is the result of our attitude. Playing to Win Requires Commitment There is a big difference between playing to win and playing not to lose. When we play to win, we play with enthusiasm and commitment; whereas when we play not to lose, we are playing from a position of weakness.
When we play not to lose, we are playing to avoid failure. We all want to win, but very few are prepared to pay the price to prepare to win. Winners condition and commit themselves to winning. Playing to win comes out of inspiration, whereas playing not to lose comes out of desperation.
There are no ideal circumstances. There will never be. To reach anywhere we cannot just drift nor lie at anchor. We need to sometimes sail with the wind and sometimes against it, but sail we must. Ask any coach or athlete what the difference between the best and the worst team is.
There would be very little difference in their physique, talent and ability. The biggest difference you will find is emotional difference. The winning team has dedication and they make the extra effort. Most athletes’ best performances have come when the odds are slightly against them.
That is when they dig deeper into their reservoir. When I’d get tired and want to stop, I’d wonder what my next opponent was doing. When I could see him still working, I’d start pushing myself. When I see him in the shower, I’d push myself harder. Some people never try because they are afraid to lose.
There is a risk either way. Ships that go out into the open water face risk from a storm. But if they sit in the harbor, they would rust and that is not what they were built for. That is the difference between playing to win and playing not to lose. One cannot be committed and not take risks. People who play to win thrive on pressure and those who play not to lose don’t know how to succeed.
Pressure makes people who play to win, prepare harder. For those who play not to lose, the pressure saps the energy. They want to win but they are so afraid to lose that they can’t reach their full potential.
They lose energy worrying about losing instead concentrating their efforts on winning. Losers want security, winners seek opportunity. Losers are more afraid of life than death. Failing is not a crime but lack of effort is. The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor. Vince Lombardi Conviction Leads to Commitment There is a difference between preferences and conviction.
Preferences are negotiable; convictions are not. Preferences give way under pressure; convictions become stronger. That is why it is important to have a good value system so that our convictions are worthy because convictions in turn lead to commitment. Responsibility A duty which becomes a desire will ultimately become a delight. They make decisions and determine their own destiny in life. Accepting responsibilities involves taking risks and being accountable which is sometimes uncomfortable.
Most people would rather stay in their comfort zone and live passive lives without accepting responsibilities. They drift through life waiting for things to happen rather than making them happen. Accepting responsibilities involves taking calculated, not foolish, risks. It means evaluating all the pros and cons, then taking the most appropriate decision or action. Responsible people don’t think that the world owes them a living.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot enrich the poor by impoverishing the rich. You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.
You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage pay or. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves. At the next crisis, open the second one. The president went into the safe and pulled out the first envelope. It said, “Blame it on your predecessor. The president went for the second envelope, and it said, “Prepare two envelopes for your successor. Some people never learn.
If, instead, we defend our weaknesses, we actually start building our lives around them, making them a center point, rather than overcoming them. Hard Work Success is not something that you run into by accident. It takes a lot of preparation and character. Everyone likes to win but how many are willing to put in the effort and time to prepare to win? It takes sacrifice and self-discipline. There is no substitute for hard work. Henry Ford said, “The harder you work, the luckier you get.
I like to work half a day. I don’t care if it is the first 12 hours or the second 12 hours. Professionals make things look easy because they have mastered the fundamentals of whatever they do.
If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it wouldn’t seem wonderful at all. He asked the candidate’s supervisor, “How long has he worked for you? The best musicians practice every day. Winners don’t need to apologize for winning because they work hard and long.
It didn’t come easy. Everything that we enjoy is a result of someone’s hard work. Some work is visible and other work goes unseen, but both are equally important. Some people stop working as soon as they find a job. Regardless of the unemployment statistics, it is hard to find good people to work.
Many people don’t understand the difference between idle time and leisure time. Idle time amounts to wasting or stealing time; leisure time is earned. Procrastinating amounts to not working. Excellence is not luck; it is the result of a lot of hard work and practice. Hard work and practice make a person better at whatever he is doing.
Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle. The harder a person works, the better he feels; and the better he feels, the harder he works. The best ideas will not work unless you work the ideas.
Great talent without will power and hard work is a waste. We need to learn from nature. The duck keeps paddling relentlessly underneath but appears smooth and calm on top. Once when Fritz Kreisler, the great violinist, finished a concert, someone came up to the stage and said, “I’d give my life to play the way YOU do.
In the real world, success comes to doers, not observers. A horse that pulls cannot kick; a horse that kicks cannot pull. Let’s pull and stop kicking. Without hard work there is no success. Nature gives birds their food but does not put it in their nest. They have to work hard for it. Nothing comes easy.
Milton rose every morning at 4 a. It took Noah Webster 36 years to compile Webster’s Dictionary. Even small accomplishments require hard work and are better than big talk.
