Notations For the weekend: Creating a Personal "Vision of the Possible"
Our team wanted to share some timely thoughts we chose for this edition of "Notations For the weekend" which we hope all enjoy so that all can embark upon creating a personal "Vision of the Possible". The first series of thoughts are from the great Og Mandino: Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity."
"Do not listen to those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious."
"I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars."
"I will not allow yesterday's success to lull me into today's complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure."
"Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new."
"The person who knows one thing and does it better than anyone else, even if it only be the art of raising lentils, receives the crown he merits. If he raises all his energy to that end, he is a benefactor of mankind and its rewarded as such."
"The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them. Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams."
"Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster. Your life will never be the same again."
"I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth, will I apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy." We leave you with this "Grid" as our journey continues:
