Words of Wisdom

It‘s not where we stand but in what direction we are moving.
Sometimes
we find ourselves running in place, struggling to get ahead simply
because we forget to address some of the simple truths that govern our
potential to make progress.

 So here’s a quick reminder:

  1. The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing.  Growing happens when what you know changes how you live.
  2. You can’t have good ideas unless you’re willing to generate a lot of bad ones.
  3. A good idea without action is worth nothing.
  4. Change is often resisted when it is needed the most.
  5. Discipline is choosing what you want most over what you want right now.  
  6. People seldom do things to the best of their ability.  They do things to the best of their willingness.
  7. You can’t change other people; you can only offer guidance, and lead by example.
  8. Right now, there’s a lot you don’t know.  And if you never challenge your own beliefs, the list will never shrink.
  9. If
    you’re talking to someone you don’t know well, you may be talking to
    someone who knows way more about the topic of conversation than you do.
  10. The most common and harmful addiction in the world is the draw of comfort.
  11. Growth
    begins at the end of your comfort zone.  Stepping outside of your
    comfort zone will put things into perspective from an angle you can’t
    grasp now.
  12. When you spend time worrying, you’re simply using your imagination to create things you don’t want.
  13. It’s usually only as good or bad as you think it is.  Most of what we see is only what we think about what we see.
  14. Most
    of the bad things you worry about will never happen.  Most of the bad
    things that do happen will have never crossed your worried mind.
  15. Some circumstances are uncontrollable, but we can always decide how we react to those circumstances.
  16. Those who complain the most, accomplish the least.
  17. Whenever
    somebody discredits you, and tells you that you can’t do something,
    keep in mind that they are speaking from within the boundaries of their
    own limitations.
  18. Every problem you have in your life right now is your responsibility, regardless of who initially caused it.
  19. It’s not so much about finding opportunities as it is about creating them.
