We create

It’s like Zig Ziglar said, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” That’s what we do: daily immersion in motivational quotes and positive mindset because it doesn’t just make a difference, it makes a world of difference.

Don’t Dither, Just Do

Don’t argue with yourself. Don’t make excuses. Just do that which you know you should do in order to be as you wish to be, and behold the wonders that unfold.

When we stop resisting doing the work that compels us, doors of possibility open up to us. Even if there are roadblocks, even if there are challenges and struggles, as surely there will be, what opens up to us is our own inner power of potential and the momentum of progress.

Immersion Over Diversion

Immersion is the way. If you’re learning to do anything new, including developing a new attitude and mindset, it’s absolutely doable with practice. Developing a positive mindset and taking action toward your dreams is simply a matter of daily practice.

Creating daily is about creativity and art, pursuit of passion and purpose and, it’s about creating the life you want to live by the actions you take and the choices you make.

When you decide to change and take daily action in that direction, motivation follows.

Don’t wait for motivation, create it. Reading, saying and practicing the concepts and wisdom in motivational quotes is just one tool to reinforce your resolve and help keep your thoughts positive and focused on what you can do, not on what you can’t.

Set a daily goal, get it done, then set another. You will find the motivation in the doing… in the process.

GOOD TIMBER
 
The tree that never had to fight
     For sun and sky and air and light,
But stood out in the open plain
     And always got its share of rain,
Never became a forest king
     But lived and died a scrubby thing.
 
The man who never had to toil
     To gain and farm his patch of soil,
Who never had to win his share
     Of sun and sky and light and air,
Never became a manly man
     But lived and died as he began.
 
Good timber does not grow with ease,
     The stronger wind, the stronger trees,
The further sky, the greater length,
     The more the storm, the more the strength.
By sun and cold, by rain and snow,
     In trees and men good timbers grow.
 
Where thickest lies the forest growth
     We find the patriarchs of both.
And they hold counsel with the stars
     Whose broken branches show the scars
Of many winds and much of strife.
     This is the common law of life.

~By Douglas Malloch, poet, story & song writer, editor, 1877-1938
