What It Takes To Exploit Your Potentials

You see many people live their whole lives "underachievers" but the question is why, well many people live and even die without realizing that! There are many thing that we do that make this happen, for example many cling to past and regrets of mistakes made yesterday, if you are one of such, you will never have a fulfilled life, here are some things you need to ponder on.

First of all free yourself from the past by identifying and cleaning up your unfinished business..
Also remember that today is a result of all theToday's that came before it. A well lived present will naturally produce wonderful future. Save a dollar today,and you'll have a dollar tomorrow. Eat 500 calories less today, and you'll lose weight tomorrow. Only what you do TODAY can affect tomorrow.

And never trade what you want at the moment, for what you want the most. If you just react to the next thing that gets your attention, you'll never have enough time for what is important. Don't schedule your time around your priorities, schedule your Priorities around your time.
Most importantly plan instead of wishing: START! Do something! If you just sit around *wishing* that things would be better, it's not likely that they ever will be. Have you ever heard the saying "wish in one hand, pour peas in the other then, see which fills up faster." Hm, Create a plan, and get into action. Make the most of your life.

Don't Live By DEFAULT, Live By DESIGN

Are you ready to create your life by design? Of course, you say, but just how do I do that? Aren't the circumstances of my life simply the ways things are? How do I influence what my life looks like? Aren't you someone who always says it is important to accept life exactly as it is? This, of course, is one of the divine paradoxes of the universe. To be at peace, I must accept and embrace the current conditions and circumstances of my life.

But that does not mean I lack the power to create an entirely new and different set of circumstances. In truth, I am already creating my life experience moment by moment. The question is, am I doing this consciously or unconsciously? The difference between living life by design and life by default is in the power of focus and attention.

Create a vision for yourself and your life.

Live Your Life By Overcoming Obstacles And NEVER Quit

A collection of thoughts and quotations compiled by Craig Lock (in 1994), that have inspired him in his quest and "mission".

"What you ARE is as important as what you do."
"Who you are speaks so loudly I can't hear what you're saying." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it."- anon
"Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right." - Henry Ford
"Never ever give up - never" - Winston Churchill
No matter what path you are on, people (often well-meaning) will not understand and will criticise you. Are you strong enough to handle the critics?
Passionate people, who live their dreams, embrace what they love and never give up. They overcome many (and often seemingly insurmountable) obstacles on the path to success in pursuing their life vision.
"Obstacles cannot crush me; every obstacle yields to stern resolve." - Leonardo Da Vinci
"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal."
- Henry Ford
"We who lived in the concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof, that everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: The last of his freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."- Viktor E. Frankl in his book, 'Man's Search for Meaning' *

Atitude Is Everything - Persistence Is All It Takes

Do you want to just earn a living' for the rest of your life? Or have security and time for your family, travel, and a comfortable lifestyle?

Where do you want to be in 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, or 20 years?

Remember nothing worthwhile comes overnight. You must do the work, put in your time, you may fall down but then get backup again.
If you are into network marketing for example be persistent in your marketing, help others on the way and you'll get there faster than you think.

Persistence - and a whole lot of patience helps too.
You must love what you do. See yourself succeeding.Challenge yourself - you might be surprised at the results! Think about what YOU need to do to change the way things are going for you. Take control of yourself and your future. Decide what you really want and go for it! With the right attitude you can be anything you want! You don't want to live with the unanswered question...WHAT IF... do you?
Love yourself, believe in yourself, imagine yourself succeeding and reaching your goals.

See you at the top!

What Does It Take To Be A Winner?


Winners have become tough because they have been through tough times. Winners become strong because they have replaced their weaknesses with newfound strengths. Winners appreciate what it takes to win, because they know what it is to have tasted the bitter taste of defeat and yet have risen once again. Winners have known what it is to be in the heat of battle, and yet they know that when all else seems beyond their grasp, the very worst thing that could ever happen to them would be for them to lose their focus.

Focused people see the good when others see the bad. They see the opportunity when others see disaster. They buy when others sell and sell when others buy. They watch others being carried by the tide and then swim the other way. They are winners and leaders because they live not by circumstance but by their inward focus. This is what sets them apart from the masses and it is this that others admire and at times misunderstand the most.

Think about this:A blind man with focus can see better than a man with perfect sight who has no vision.

You can do it!

...Because You Can Make It.

Hey, I was just musing on success and I figured that: success is a relative word and a relative experience. It's like a piece of clothing or an accessory -- either you wear it well or you don't. This goes for whatever it is that you are doing.

On the Internet for example, if you want to achieve the goals you've set for yourself, you have got to wear success well.Take a look at all the successful people you know. How do they act? How do they carry themselves? How do they speak?And most importantly, how do you think they dealt with failure before they became the success they are now?

You don't have to have Einstein's IQ to figure out that they wouldn't be successful people today if they folded their hands and got discouraged by their failed attempts, or if they stopped doing what they were doing because they didn't think any of their small successes were significant enough.Success, even if it is small, is still success.So wear success like a second skin and each of your small successes will build up into bigger ones!

You can make it!!

Whispering Hope...You're Worth A Lot More Than You Think

YOU"RE WORTH A LOT TO GOD!!! I hope this will help somebody.Does the thought ever sweep over you that you are not very important? Perhaps you feel that if you were to disappear off the face of the earth, no one would really miss you. Sometines I do, really.

Now, everyone has their bad days, But there are many people, and you may be one of them, who are sincerely convinced of their lack of value. Perhaps you feel that you are not as attractive as your friends. You may have a skin problem, or a weight problem, It could be that you are too shy to make friends easily, or that you feel you just don’t have what it takes to converse well with people. It is easy to focus on what you perceive as your limitations and to get the feeling that you are just no good.

What is the answer to all of this? The fact is, there is probably some truth in your personal assessment of yourself. True, when you are feeling down, you tend to exaggerate the negative and overlook the positive. No doubt, you fare as well as many others do in some respects and perhaps even excel in certain areas.
So what you need is to get a new perspective on value. Instead of evaluating how man looks at you, consider this: How does God look at you? Do you suppose that God loves the handsome, but rejects the plain? Does God love the talented few while having no interest in the ordinary majority? Does God favor the bright and energetic over the average and weak? Of course not!

And that, my friend, is precisely the reason you should not demean yourself. In God’s sight, you are of great worth. Since God chose to create you, in His sight you are of great value. God knows all about you. He created you with your special combination of skills, personality traits, appearance, strengths, and weaknesses. Do you know why? For His purposes and for His glory. God has a job for you to do, just the way you are. As you accept this and endeavor to do the best you can for Him, external factors will cease to concern you.God loves you just the way He made you...... the way you are!
