You Cannot Meet the Test If You Do Not Invest

b2ap3_thumbnail_j0439540What follows are twenty thoughts in which you need to invest, if you are going to meet life’s test for success.

  • Whether you call it the will of God or the fortunes of life, the bottom-line is you are not in total control of your destiny.  The only thing you can be absolutely certain about is the attitude you choose in the present moment.  Your attitude will give you a strong hint of how things could be for you in the future.
  • Almost everybody, it seems, wants to ultimately be seen as a success in whatever their pursuit.  Success is not as seen through the eyes of the beholder. It is as felt in the heart of the pursuer.
  • If you’re going to be a success, it won’t come as the result of a surprise.  Rather, it will be because you planned it; then, confidently predicted it; and, then, achieved it.
  • You cannot expect to maximize your potential without having honed your skills.  Skills are the “how” of what you have to do to achieve success.
  • Ever judge a book by its cover?  Think about that the next time you step in front of someone to communicate an idea to them.  Will they discard you the same way you did that book before you even read the synopsis?  Your “cover” is how you groom and dress yourself.  Don’t allow people’s first impression of you stop you dead in your tracks on your way to success.
  • It takes the right attitude to light each word you say and deed you do with the warm glow of success.
  • Your skill at and your commitment to planning will determine your destiny.
  • Do you work as hard as the person you dream to be?  No dream was ever realized without first having done the hard work to realize it.
  • Life is much like playing a musical instrument.  Don’t wait to start until you think you will do it perfectly.
  • It’s not the human won’t.  It’s the human will.  Great things happen through a strong attitude of “will” rather than a negative attitude of “won’t.”
  • Who says life is cheap?  Only those who choose not to pay the price to live their life to the fullest.
  • Just as the light of a full moon pushes back the darkness and reveals a shimmering lake, so you can push back the boundaries of humankind through the light of your dreams.
  • The sewer of life is filled through the drain of negative thoughts.
  • Last time I checked nobody has ever been successful at stopping the passage of time.  You have 86,400 seconds in each of your days in this life.  You can’t stop them.  You can’t put them in a bank and save them.  You can only use them wisely…now!
  • If you want to win the lottery…of life, it’s by the numbers every day with vision, commitment, character and the joy of having the chance to deal with life’s randomness.
  • How many times have you stood on the shore of a body of water and wondered about the mysteries of its depths?  The only way to find out is to jump in and get fully immersed in it.  Life is the same.  You can choose to stand on the shore of life and wonder about the potential of its mysteries.  Or, you can jump in and become fully immersed in pushing the mysteries aside and realizing your life’s true potential.
  • Create your own options to success by developing physically, learning intellectually and disciplining financially.
  • Your life is not about retiring.  It is about constantly aspiring!
  • Your body language communicates the majority of the picture you are painting when you are communicating any message to another person.  Facial expression, body movement, gestures, and posture provide the brushstrokes to give clarity, vibrancy and validity to the picture of your message.
  • The true measure of you as a person is not what you are but how hard you are working toward becoming all that you can be.

Invest in acting on these thoughts and you will meet the test of success.  What a return on your investment!
