The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will

Secret to Success

SECRET TO SUCCESS

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want,and, if they can’t find them, make them.”

~George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish Playwright

Making the decision



Making a decision:

Every time I would make an emotional decision, it is most of a time guaranteed failure. So now since I am planning and working for a change that could alter my life, I stopped and seeked advice from several people close to me.

I need to think this through and plan it out more carefully. Seeking the advice of experts and love ones made me realized not to rush things right away.  I made some revisions on the proposal that is more conducive and safer for me. To make it short, a wiser move.  Start small and will plan the bigger move when the right time comes. For now, I will take my sweet time and check other options if the revised plan does not fall through.

“If I catch myself wearing a tutu – 2FAT, 2LATE, 2OLD, let me shake it off like…”

“Let me be not so vain to think that I am the sole author of my victories and a victim of my defeats…”

“Let me remember that the unintended meaning that people project on to what I do is neither my fault or something I can take credit for.”

“Let me not think of…
