“Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals. If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more?”
– Roy T. Bennett
Action is the foundational key to all success.
As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.
Ask yourself: “Why do I have this job?” Do it now. Be honest. Is this really all you want out of life?
Ask yourself: “What’s important to me about being successful?”
