Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.
All you have to do is know where you're going. The answers will come to you of their own accord.
Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations.
We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we've established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.
The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!
Our attitude towards others determines their attitude towards us.
Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.
Your problem is to bridge the gap which exists between where you are now and the goal you intend to reach.
You'll find boredom where there is the absence of a good idea.
