“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep
physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
-Henry David Thoreau, Author and Philosopher
“Dave, you are a fine young man with a very bright future. Your confidence and personality will carry you a very long way towards reaching your dreams and goals. Just remember, in the days ahead of you there will good times and some bad ones too. Things will go both for you and then back against you. Whatever the case may be just handle it as best you are able and continue to move forward in the direction of your goals.
Never pass up an opportunity to learn something new. Listen carefully and with great respect to those people who know or who have done more than yourself.
Honesty and integrity are absolute must-have character traits. ‘If you always tell the truth, then you never have to remember what you said.’
Honor and respect your parents. They took good care of you while you were growing up. You do the same for them as they age and slow their pace down. Provide for their needs as they arise. Remember without them, you wouldn’t be around.
Respect all people. Learn how to relax those folks around you. Be a good listener. You cannot listen very much if you are always talking. ‘If you always do all of the talking, then the other guy comes away from the conversation knowing everything that he knows plus what you know. Who benefitted most from the conversation?’
Know who you are and where you are going in your life. Set your targets and don’t allow anyone or anything to derail you from reaching them. Stay on task until the work before you is totally completed.”
-Walter Hoyt Carr, Surrogate Father
When you hurt the worst, go to your secret closet and weep out all your despair. God encourages it. Jesus wept. Peter wept—bitterly! Peter carried with him the hurt of denying the very Son of God, but he came back to shake the kingdom of Satan. Jesus never turns away from a crying heart. The … Continue reading
Don’t waste your time and resources looking for the secret to success. You simply won’t find it because it does not exist. There is no secret to success! If you really want to become successful you must first realize that there are no shortcuts to the top. Success (and its related freedom) has a price tag. … Continue reading
“You can have anything in life that you want, if you are first willing to help enough other people get what they want.”
