When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.
John Muir

Motivation is great. Literally billions of dollars are spent each year by people trying to build their motivation. Tony Robbins, Jeff Keller and others have made fabulous careers helping people maximize their motivation. In truth, you could be helped to focus your motivation for success. All of that is good and useful.

Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve

This is an evergreen, wonderful and magnificent book. Ever since I read it, it has revolutionized my mindset and the way I looked toward life, money and in turn changed my attitude about achieving success. I was inspired by all the chapters two of which I can’t forget are ” I will never stop because men say no” a sub of chapter 1 and the chapter on the subconscious mind because that’s the main thing we need to control.
Below are some quotes that caught my attention.

Success comes to those who become success conscious. Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious.

Both poverty and riches are offsprings of thoughts.

NEVER GIVE UP!!

 

wpid-img_63323793334338.jpeg

On one hand, we know that everything happens
for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences. On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light
decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.”
_Yehuda Berg

Ps. Just had to re-publish as a reminder.
I was chatting with a friend of mine over the phone just two days ago. He told me many things he had envisioned to achieve but he was still contemplating if they were achievable. He asked for my thoughts on what to do for him not to give up. I just didn’t know what to say but hope that what I did say will keep him going. I just want to share that same thoughts here too. Here it is. Reconnect yourself with your dreams. Don’t detach yourself from what you’ve envisioned. Regardless of what you are going through, make a commitment to hold on to your dreams. You’ve got to stick to your guns. i just love this phrase Same goes to us all. You are at a crossroads where you make a strong decision about your future. You are at a point where you make a good choice about what you want in life. You can decide to remain stagnant or move forward. The choice is yours. In spite of what your circumstances are, decide to reconnect with your vision. Take up things that bring you to your dreams everyday. Remind yourself of why you mustn’t give up on your dreams. Be persistently pursuing what gives you joy. Be patient with what you believe in. Give your dreams enough time to flourish in order to give you the success you truly deserve. Your position of power, success and respect is achievable. Take positive mindset with you as you journey in life. Believe all is possible!

What would you tell someone else trying to give up?
