More Words of Wisdom

These inspiring gems make for a great pick-me-up any time of year.

By Compiled by Maggie Leyes

All things are created twice. There’s a mental or first creation, and a physical or second creation of all things. You have to make sure that the blueprint, the first creation, is really what you want, that you’ve thought everything through. Then you put it into bricks and mortar. Each day you go to the construction shed and pull out the blueprint to get marching orders for the day. You begin with the end in mind. —Stephen Covey, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

The way we see the problem is the problem. —Stephen Covey

Ideas without action are worthless. —Harvey Mackay

Do, or do not. There is no “try.” —Yoda, The Empire Strikes Back

The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what?

Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped. —African proverb

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain. —Maya Angelou
