“If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don’t be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning ‘good morning’ at total strangers.” Maya Angelou Poet, Writer and Performer
I was searching around for quotes on ‘discipline’ and liked these…
Discipline – the bridge between goals and accomplishment!
“Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes.” – Buddha
“It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.” – Zig Ziglar
REASON # 6 – You believe that you should enjoy
life whilst you can.
So you might get run over by a car tomorrow…but the
chances are you won’t.
Thanks to advances in healthcare, you could well be
retired longer than you worked for. Never let your
borrowings grow old with you; pay them off as soon as you
What is the biggest cause of arguments between married
What is the biggest cause of the poor getting poorer and
the rich getting richer? Abuse of money.
Have you noticed that the most addictive substances are
those that have to be replaced again and again?
I would put money firmly in the same category. The
people who want more money the most…go out of their
way to dispose of it and get the thrill as quickly as
Rich and successful people look after their money.
They nurture it, so that it reproduces and grows. Poor
people waste it.
If you spent $3 every working day on a coffee instead
of putting the money towards paying off a credit card
…then you would be almost $6,500 worse off after 5
Just for having a coffee!
I hope that these steps have helped you realise that
it’s the little things that make a difference!
CHANGE YOUR SELF-TALK WITH AFFIRMATIONS!
I’ve always believed in magic. When I wasn’t doing anything in this town, I’d go up every night, sit on Mulholland Drive, look out at the city, stretch out my arms, and say, “Everybody wants to work with me I’m a really good actor. I have all kinds of great movie offers.” I’d just repeat these things over and over, literally convincing myself that I had a couple of movies lined up, I’d drive down that hill, ready to take the world on, going, “Movie offers are out there for me, I just don’t hear them yet. lt was like total affirmations, antidotes to the stuff that stems from my family background.

REASON # 2 – You can never imagine yourself as a success.
Successful people always have a vision of where they want to
be in the future.
Can you imagine yourself living the life of luxury in Monte
Carlo or on a yacht in the Caribbean?
Didn’t think you could.
Most people (apart from the successful ones) have a vision
of under-achievement. They never believe that they could
possibly be millionaires, or live a life like a famous role
I call this “Oh Well” thinking. You always hear yourself say
“Oh Well…it will never happen for me” or “Oh Well…she’s
luckier than me anyway”.
Think like a winner…and you will become a winner.
Look at the example of one of the greatest boxers of all
time – Muhammad Ali. You probably remember his catchphrase.
The thing was…he even said it when he was starting out and
was plain old Cassius Clay…
“I Am The Greatest”

I came across this proverb and immediately had this idea come to mind…
An old proverb epitomizes the wait-and-see mentality of many people: “Man who stand on top of mountain with mouth open wait long time for roast turkey to fly in!”
So the point here is TAKE ACTION – no matter how small, as long it is in the direction you want to go!
