It is Too Early to Quit!

 

  

It's always too early to quit. Norman Vincent Peale

 

This is a great quote that will give you the push you need to keep going regardless of what your goal is. It is very easy to give up before we reach our goal; no matter if it is a business goal, employment goal, or personal goal you should keep moving forward. If you do not keep fighting the fight to achieve your goal, you will never know what may have been. Isn’t it better to reach the finish line even if it was a battle to get there, then to wonder what if? That is when we usually have regrets is when we quit too early. Next time you want to throw in the towel, remember it is too early for you to quit!

Life is Like a Puzzle

 

Life is like a puzzle. We have different pieces of our life, good and bad, to make our masterpiece which is what our lives are. The pieces of the life puzzle are experiences that form us, even the not so good experiences. If you think back on the worst experience of your life, I am sure you have learned something from it and it helped shape you into the person you are today. Everything that we experience is just another piece being added to our puzzle that will ultimately shape us into the person we want to be.

 

The true testament of a person does not lie in putting the pieces of the puzzle together when life is good. The true testament is the passion in which we continue to work the puzzle when things are hard, very hard. It does not matter how old a person is, there are always pieces that are missing from our puzzle. We are still finishing putting our puzzle together each and every day. What will your puzzle look like when it is complete?

 

Problems: Everyone Has Them!

 

 

Is it one of those weeks or maybe even months where it seems like everything is going wrong? The car needs repaired, the pool pump stopped working, and your toilet is leaking nonstop. You think to yourself why does this only happen to me? It may feel like you are in the middle of the desert island named problems all by yourself and you have a rain cloud following you, but guess what you are not alone. You are not the only one with problems, although it may seem like it at the moment.

Everyone has problems, their problems just may be on a different level or not happening at the same time as when you are experiencing an avalanche of problems. So as you are dealing with your problems, you cannot put that in your mind that you are the only one with problems. This does not make the situation any easier, it just makes you angry and bitter.

It is like the people who compare their lives to other people’s lives. They will say so & so has the perfect life. I don’t want to burst your bubble, but no one truly has a perfect life. Those people just do not advertise their problems, they deal with them and move on. That is the best way to deal with a problem, figure out a solution and move on. Every problem has a solution, you just need a clear mind and positive outlook to figure out the solution. Don’t waste time with the negativity side of the problem, focus on how to solve the problem.

 

You are the Author of Your Life....What Does Your book read?

 


If you want your life to be a magnificent story, then begin by realizing that you are the author and everyday you have the opportunity to write a new page 

     - Mark Houlahan -

 

I think this is a great analogy of life.  Only you can determine how the chapters in your life are written. If you focus on the negative things that may come about or only problems then the story of your life will read as so.  It is about your mind set, if you try to find the positive in each problem or situation then you will have much happier days.  You are the only one who can decide the ending of your book, make it a happy one.  No matter the circumstances, you can rewrite the chapters to be positive.  You can live your life by  your design!
