Sitting here relaxing on the Friday before the holiday and I am sure we all have big plans for the Memorial Day weekend. Before the weekend gets started I just wanted to share a few thoughts as I was clearing my head this morning.
My thoughts over the last couple of weeks have revolved around accomplishments. A little over two weeks ago my little sister accomplished yet another feat in graduating with her master’s degree. I also know of quite a few young people that have recently walked across the stage accepting diploma’s as they graduated from high school. These are major accomplishments and hopefully have laid a foundation for bigger and better accomplishments in the future.
Already 5 months into the new year and I wonder where the time has gone as we are nearing the halfway point of 2010. Now is a great time to look at the where you are in life and goals that you may have set for yourself this year.
Maybe there are questions that we could all ask ourselves:
1. What has been my greatest accomplishment thus far?
2. What have I accomplished recently?
3. What is the next thing I hope to accomplish?
4. Are there any roadblocks preventing my accomplishments?
I wish all of you an amazing safe holiday weekend and hope you enjoy the quotes below.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”
“Nothing stops the man who desires to achieve. Every obstacle is simply a course to develop his achievement muscle. It's a strengthening of his powers of accomplishment.”
“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”
“The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.”
“The person determined to achieve maximum success learns the principle that progress is made one step at a time. A house is built one brick at a time. Football games are won a play at a time. A department store grows bigger one customer at a time. Every big accomplishment is a series of little accomplishments.”
-David Joseph Schwartz
