Everyone should have a deep-seated interest, or hobby, to enrich his mind, add zest to living, and perhaps, depending upon what it is, result in a service to his country.

Dale Carnegie

Motivational Monday – Sept. 19, 2016

A leader has to have the confidence to think that his decision will be proven correct. While trying to retain humility, you must accept that the reason you’re making these decisions and other people are not is because, for now, you’re in charge and they aren’t. You do no one any good if, like Hamlet, you cannot carry the weight of your convictions. Yes, you must guard against arrogance; but if you’re doing your job and putting your motives and conscience through their paces, accept that maybe you really do know better and can see a little further down the road than others.

Motivational Monday – September 12, 2016

When I am up against a tough situation, if I can do anything about it, I do it. If I can’t, I just forget it. I never worry about the future, because I know no man living can possibly figure out what is going to happen in the future. There are so many forces that will affect that future. Nobody can tell what prompts those forces – or understand them. So why worry about them?

Motivational Monday – August 15, 2016

If you can dream and not make dreams your master;

If you can think and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with triumph and disaster;

And treat those two impostors just the same,

 

If you can force your heart, and nerve, and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone;

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the will which says to them, “Hold on,”

 

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,

Yours is the earth and everything that’s in it,

And, what is more, you’ll be a man, my son.

 

By Rudyard Kipling

Motivational Monday – Aug. 8, 2016

I know that I am considered an inveterate optimist and properly so. Why? Because I always turn my eyes toward success, not failure. I involuntarily turn my back on disaster and eliminate the hypothesis of failure. This is my philosophy in action. Every time you have a task before you, examine it carefully, take exact measure of what is expected of you. Then make your plan and, in order to execute it properly, create for yourself a method, never improvise.

By Marshal Ferdinand Foch

Motivational Monday – August 1, 2016,

 

If we think happy thoughts, we will be happy. If we think miserable thoughts, we will be miserable. If we think fear thoughts, we will be fearful. If we think sickly thoughts, we will probably be ill. If we think failure, we will certainly fail. If we wallow in self-pity, everyone will want to shun us and avoid us.

I was the son of an immigrant. I experienced bigotry, intolerance and prejudice, even as so many of you have. Instead of allowing these things to embitter me, I took them as spurs to more strenuous effort.

The world bestows its big prizes both in money and honors for but one thing. And that is initiative. And what is initiative? I’ll tell you: it is doing the right thing without being told.
