Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
~ Jim Rohn
How many times have you thought or said: As soon as XX happens, I will be happy!!
WOW! Not effective as once XX happens, there will be something else that you will need in order to be happy!
How about if we decided to happy, right here and now, in our current circumstances. Or like Jim says: Design (happiness) for the present.
Now, I am not talking about settled for less in our lives, but to use happiness as a spring board to catapult us into creating more success and satisfaction for the future.
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
~ Jim Rohn
Goals don’t just materialize without some work. According to Jim, discipline is the bridge between goals and the realization of goals.
Personally, I am not real fond of the word discipline. I would like to think of this as time dedicated in the endeavor of working towards success!
It is evident that dedication to our goals results in accomplishments and success. And if dedication and disciple go hand in hand, then we have a winning combination to bring us closer to our goals.
What do you think? Is discipline the bridge between goals and accomplishments?
Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins.
~ Jim Rohn
Gee, is learning critical to life?
According to Jim, it is the beginning of everything in our lives (well, I guess he did not name relationships!!)
My grandmother told me once that senility overcomes older folks when they stop learning. I never forgot that and, now that I am older, I understand what she was trying to say.
Our brains are muscle — of a sort — and if we don’t exercise it, we lose it!
And, like he says, learning is where miracles start. Isn’t that an exciting thought??
