Opportunity is all around you. What matters is where you put your focus. Ask yourself this question everyday : "Where should my focus be?" Where you focus your attention, you create strength and momentum. Concentration is the key that opens the door of accomplishment.
The first law of success is concentration to bend all energies to one point, and to go directly to that point, looking neither to the left nor to the right.... William Matthews
I am astonished at the aimlessness of most people's lives. There is a great distance between most people's dreams and the results they achieve. As a result of lacking lack of focus, they delegate the direction of their lives to others.
Don't live your life like that
We can accomplish things by directing our desires, not by ignoring them. What an immense power you will have over your life when you possess distinct aims. Your words, the tone of your voice, your dress, your very motion change and improve when you begin to live for a definite reason.
Don't be a person who is uncertain about the future and hazy about the present. Make something your specialty.
To finish the race, stay on the track.
Both enthusiasm and pessimism are contagious. How mush of each do you have?
Your words reflect what you believe about yourself future. Just to see how it feels, for the next twenty four hours, refrain from saying anything bad about anyone or anything. >
"The difference between the right word and almost the right word is the difference between the lightning and the lightning bug" said Mark Twain
The person who finds the negative seldom finds anything else. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. Children are both optimists, then the world slowly tries to educate them out of their delusion.
The fact is, the more you complain, the less you obtain
Some people always find the bad in a
situation. Do you know people like that? Think about it, how many successful complainers do you know? Many a great idea has been quenched by wrong words. Don't spend your life standing at the complaint counter.
A wise old owl sat on an oak,
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard;
Why aren't we like that wise bird? ....Edward H. Richard
