I used to post the Daily Motivator in my journal,and had a lot of positive feedback on them. So i have decided to continue that, in a thread all its own.
I hope they help encourage the people that take the time to read them.
I know, personally, that i have read several of them and they pertained so something i was dealing with that day.

Great experience

Experience is something that can never be taken away from you. Though the material things you possess will rust, fade, peel, crack, break and become obsolete, the experiences you live through will stay with you always.

Every day is filled with so many opportunities to experience the richness of life. Yet it's all too easy to get into comfortable habits and fail to take advantage of those opportunities.

The greatest treasures you'll ever have are the moments you spend living life fully, moments spent with those you love and care about, moments lived passionately in pursuit of a vision, a dream or an accomplishment.

As you go through this day, keep in mind what an incredible, irreplaceable, great experience life is. Wherever you go, whatever your circumstance, fill the moments with meaning and richness. Today is a special day, a day to be alive. Live it with joy, with wonder and intensity. Your great experience is happening now

originally it was from the book "The Stand" by stephen king.
one of the key characters was a mentally challenged young man who spelled everything M O O N. they made a mini series of it a few years ago.

Awesome read for anyone who hasn't read it.

Self discipline

Self discipline is the way to turn your intentions into reality. Self discipline is the way to transform your weaknesses into strengths. Without discipline, even when you know what you want, you're unable to achieve it. Without discipline, even though you know what you don't want, you're unable to avoid it.

Self discipline is essential to living life on your own terms. It takes effort, it takes determination, it takes sacrifice, yet it is not a punishment. Rather, it is a fulfillment, the means to reaching your highest and best possibilities.

How do you "get" self discipline? You already have it. It involves nothing more than controlling your own actions, and you've been doing that since you were a child. To discipline yourself, you simply must decide to do it. The powerful tool of self discipline is yours to use whenever you're ready to start living life on your own terms.

Kindness

In any situation, you have a choice of how to react. When things are tense, frantic and hurried, stop and show a little kindness. An encouraging word, a helpful gesture, an offer of assistance or understanding can go a long way to turn things around.

It is easy to complain when things aren't going right. It is easy to criticize everyone and everything. But where does that get you? Perhaps a little kindness and understanding would help to change the situation. It certainly won't hurt.

People will respond to kindness. If you want someone on your side, if you want to persuade someone to see your point of view, one of the best ways is to approach them with sincere kindness and caring. It can diffuse a tense situation. It can help you to build rapport. And it must be sincere. It must come from the heart.

Try a little kindness, with no expectations of anything in return. It will improve your outlook, your effectiveness, and it might even lower your blood pressure! Put some kindness into the world and you'll like what the world gives back.

Positive outlook

A positive outlook does not depend on any particular circumstance. A positive outlook costs you nothing, and yet it can bring you so very much. How can you be positive if everything is going wrong? Because a positive outlook is a great way to get things going right.

The reason to be positive is not because of what has or has not already happened. The reason to be positive is because of how your positive outlook will shape the future. It will enable you to see possibilities that exist amidst the problems and obstacles. It can energize your actions and keep you focused on moving forward.

Is it naive to be positive, or just wishful thinking? Most certainly not. Though it's foolish to ignore reality, it's even more foolish to give in to negativity when that reality gets too difficult.

Every life is filled with positive possibilities. The more you acknowledge, accept and pursue them, the better off you'll be.

A larger perspective

One of the most positive and effective ways to transcend your difficulties is by expanding your perspective. When you look at a bigger picture, just the change in viewpoint alone will suddenly make the problems smaller.

Does it make sense to spend all your energy fighting battles that don't really matter? Those who can see the bigger picture are able to focus on achieving bigger, more positive results.

Is something holding you down? Back away from it. Frame it within a larger perspective and you'll create more room for yourself to get around it. Are you crawling along the rocky ground, agonizing over every pebble? Or are you flying through the air, enjoying the view from 30,000 feet? The difference is one of perspective. Make yours big enough, and you'll move swiftly forward.

Wrapped in comfort

It's nice and comfortable to lie in bed an extra hour or so on a rainy Saturday morning. Yet if you stay in bed all day, that's not comfortable at all. Being comfortable is pleasant up to a point. After that point, the comfort is no longer desirable and can in fact become quite unpleasant. Too much comfort can smother your life.

Just as staying in bed all day would make you weary, the satisfaction of any comfort soon fades away. Eventually you ask yourself, "What's so great about being so wrapped in comfort?" And you have trouble finding an answer.

Comfort is enjoyable. Thankfully that enjoyment doesn't continue indefinitely. No matter how comfortable you may be, soon you get hungry for life, for challenge, for the opportunity to make a difference. Pay heed to that dissatisfaction. Get out of your nice warm bed while it's still nice and warm. Move beyond your comfort zone before it smothers you. There's so much more to life than mere comfort. Experience it all!

Spread joy

When your day is filled with troubles, rejoice! You've been given a challenge worthy of your strength, and one which will build that strength even more.

Don't wait for happiness and joy to come to you. Let them come from you. Spread joy and you will know joy. Pay no mind to the circumstances. They come and go. Let your joy transcend them and transform them. The troubles of the moment will soon be history. You, on the other hand, have the privilege of being alive and able to move beyond any past disappointment, no matter how severe.

Fill your heart with joy and you'll be amazed at how many positive possibilities suddenly pop into view. Put a smile on your face and watch your actions become more effective. Spread joy to your world and feel the warmth of it coming back to you.

This is a great day to be alive. So be alive with joy and make it even better.

So do it

Do what needs to be done. Say what needs to be said. Listen to the things you need to hear. Learn what you need to learn. Explain what you need to explain.

Rather than constructing elaborate methods for avoiding these things, or elaborate excuses to evade them, just get them done. Instead of letting things slip and continue to weigh you down, get them done and let your actions energize you. The avoidance of effort is just as difficult as effort itself yet avoidance accomplishes nothing positive.

Success is not always easy, yet it is for the most part simple. The way to accomplishment is not hidden. It is in plain view. You can see what must be done. Stop fretting. Quit worrying. Don't complain. You know what you need to do. So do it.

Ups and downs

For every disappointment you're experiencing there's a step you can take right now that will begin to move you away from that disappointment. For every weakness or limitation there's a step you can take right now that will make you stronger.

The negative things often are better at capturing your attention, yet there are just as many positive possibilities which can capture your imagination and inspire you to move ahead.

Each time a disappointment comes your way, each time you encounter a discouraging situation, challenge yourself to find something positive and compelling to offset it. The world is full of ups and downs. The quality of your life depends not on how many ups or downs come your way, but rather on where you choose to direct your focus.

Living with it

You'll only live this day once, yet you will live with it for the rest of your life. Today you have the opportunity to take action, to make things happen, to create, to express yourself, to be with those you love, to experience the beauty that's around you.

Yet once the day is done, it's done. You can't rewind and go back. You must get it right the first time.

The way you spend this day will have repercussions which will echo through your life for years. You have the opportunity right now to control whether you'll look back on today with satisfaction or with regret.

So what will it be? That's up to you. Today is here right now. It's your opportunity to fill your life with value and meaning. Make it a day you can continue to live with and enjoy.

Are you tired and weary? Do you need something that will energize your life and get you going?

Try taking on a difficult and meaningful challenge. Is there something you've always told yourself you would do someday, something that will force you to move out of your comfort zone. Well, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and make to commitment to pursue that dream.

Give yourself a good, difficult challenge -- something you truly want to achieve and something that will compel you to grow in the process. Once you dive into that challenge, it will energize every area of your life.

Why do people climb mountains? Why do billionaires who have enough money for 1,000 lifetimes work to create even more business? Because they understand the value of challenge. Give yourself a hefty challenge and watch your life move rapidly forward.

The richness of life

In the end, it requires just as much effort to live poorly as it does to live richly. And filling your life with richness is a whole lot more fun. As long as you're going to put in the time and effort to go through the day, doesn't it make sense to get the very most you can from it?

Most of your perceived limitations are not really limitations at all. They're simply boundaries that you've set for yourself. Have you ever wondered what's outside those boundaries? Perhaps today would be a good day to find out.

Your expectations do a good job of keeping you in line. What you get from life is just about exactly what you expect. So here's a powerful suggestion -- start expecting more!

You are filled with possibilities and you live in a world full of opportunities. Resolve right now to make the most of it all. You are worth it, you can do it, and you'll be so glad you did.

Comfortable doubts

Have your doubts become too comfortable? It's easier to doubt than it is to do. When you doubt that you can accomplish something, the doubt gives you a nice, comfortable place to hide, a reason for not making the effort.

Yet if you keep piling up one doubt on top of another, soon there's no room left for your dreams, your goals, your ambitions. When you seek refuge in the comfort of your doubts, you close yourself off from all the positive possibilities in your life. After a while even the comfort fades, as regret sets in -- regret for opportunities missed that will never come again.

If you fail to prove your doubts wrong, they will eventually prove themselves right. Don't allow that to happen. Get up, get going and make those doubts look foolish. As soon as you start to take action, the doubts begin to fade. The longer you remain committed to your goals, the weaker your doubts become.

Rather than seeking comfort in your doubts, build confidence in your actions.

Choose to be free

If you think of yourself as a victim, stop that thought right now. Nothing positive will come of it. No matter what has brought you to where you are, it is up to you to move yourself forward. Have forces beyond your control injured you or held you back? Of course they have. Do you really want to depend on those same forces to move you forward?

Though others may be to blame for your situation, you are nonetheless responsible for it. Though you may have many excellent reasons to feel sorry for yourself, such pity will not add anything of value to your life.

If you see yourself as a victim, it is because you have chosen to do so. Does that sound harsh and uncaring? Then keep this in mind. There are many who have suffered even more than you, who have chosen not to be a victim, who have chosen instead to live life on their own terms.

You can choose to be responsible and by so doing you can choose to be free.

What you can do

You erect walls to keep other people out, yet those walls end up keeping you confined as a prisoner. Knock down those walls. Push out the boundaries you have imposed on yourself.

You live only for the moment, and get nothing of lasting value in return. Start making those moments count by raising your expectations, by living for something bigger and more meaningful.

You take the easiest, least challenging course, and it leads to the hardest life. So start making life better for yourself by embracing the challenges and the value that can come from working to overcome them.

What can you do to improve your life? You can start by looking for ways to improve yourself. There are plenty of possibilities. What are you doing that is holding you back? Does it make any sense to continue that behavior? Decide to give yourself the best that life has to offer

Right now you are creating yourself. Your thoughts, your beliefs, your actions, your decisions, the things you say, the songs you sing, your hopes, your prayers, the things you learn all go into making the person you are, and the person you are to become. Every moment you're in the process of creating a person who is like no other, a life that is special.

It is an opportunity which has no equal in this world, and it is yours. Some people will take that opportunity and really run with it. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine why anyone would want to do anything less.

Right now you are moving steadily toward being the person you will become. Right now you have the opportunity to fashion a life that is as splendid as anything you can imagine. So go ahead and imagine, because you're already busy making it so.

Bigger than you

If it were not for those who devote their lives, and who often give their lives, for a cause bigger than themselves, the world would be an entirely different place than it is today. We enjoy freedom because so many have served its cause and died for it. We benefit from knowledge, wisdom and faith because of all who have devoted their lives to advancing them.

Each day you have an opportunity to continue that legacy and to expand upon its goodness. When you live your moments in the service of something bigger than yourself, you experience a fulfillment that goes beyond anything you could possibly find in self-centered pursuits.

Take care of yourself, to be sure. That is your responsibility. Take care of your world as well, and make sure to leave each place you go, each person you meet, each moment you live, better off than you found them, better for your having been a part of them. That is the highest possible expression and expansion of yourself.

Great ideas

You've got a lot of great ideas. They come to you every day. Perhaps you're too busy to notice them. Perhaps you're so busy being worried or frustrated or stressed out that you fail to appreciate them. Or perhaps you notice the ideas, but fail to take action on them.

That's too bad. Because the ideas you have can be the seeds of greatness in your life. When you nurture them, put your commitment and effort into working on them, make them stronger by challenging them, and give them room to grow, your ideas can bring incredible value to your life.

Pay attention to your ideas. Write them down before you forget about them. Come back a few days later and look objectively at each one. Add some more supporting ideas. Let your natural creative process take hold.

Then get to work on them. Ideas alone aren't worth very much, yet when you put some focused, persistent effort into them they can turn into something magnificent.

Keep going

If you've already achieved some success today, keep going. Build on that momentum and you'll achieve even more. If you've known nothing but frustration and disappointment today, keep going. Change your approach based on what you've learned and you'll get yourself where you want to go.

Through it all, keep going. The only way to lose is to give up. The only way to win is to persist. It's a clear choice. You can give up now, you can settle for less, or you can continue for as long as it takes to achieve what you've set out to achieve.

Time will pass no matter what you do. Time will keep on going. Your best strategy is to keep on going, too. Make use of every moment.

When you're exhausted, get some rest. Then get back up and keep on going. You are destined to make things happen. You are here to make a difference. Keep on going, and in the persistence of your efforts, you'll find a level of joy and fulfillment that you otherwise could not know.

Buried or lifted?

If you find yourself at the bottom of a deep hole in the ground, and somebody starts shoveling dirt into the hole, what are you going to do?

Are you going to give up and resign yourself to being buried, or are you going to step up on top of each fresh mound of dirt until you're finally able to step out of the hole? It all depends on whether you look at the dirt as something that will bury you or as something that can lift you higher.

In short, it's a matter of attitude and perspective. Every day, problems, frustrations, challenges and uncertainty are heaped upon you. They can bury you if you let them. Or, they can lift you if you'll step up to them.

Which will it be? Don't stand still and let yourself get buried when, with a bit of effort, you can use the very same situation to lift yourself up.

Enjoy having it done

One of the biggest burdens you can create for yourself is to put off something that needs to be done. When there's a task that you've put off until later, it hangs over everything you do. It drags you down and brings unnecessary stress.

Is there something you've been putting off, something you could do right now, something that needs to be done? Why wait any longer? Go ahead and free yourself from its burden. Go ahead and get it done.

It will free your energy. It will free your time. It will free your mind and your spirit. You're going to have to do it eventually, so get it done as soon as possible and avoid letting it drag you down any longer.

Don't let procrastination drain the life out of you. Get it done now and start enjoying the fruits of your labor. You'll feel great to have it done.

Expect to improve

Reach a little higher today than yesterday. Raise your expectations a little bit more. After all, you're wiser and more experienced than you were even just a day ago. In fact, you now have more knowledge and more experience than you've ever had before in your life.

Even if yesterday was a total disaster, you've at least learned something from it. And if yesterday was full of success, you've learned from that as well. The bottom line is that you're more experienced, more aware of what works and what doesn't work.

So reach higher today than you did yesterday. And resolve to reach even higher tomorrow. As time goes on you're continually growing and improving, so you might as well take advantage of that.

Reach higher, and you'll attain more. Expect more of yourself, and those expectations will soon become your reality. Each day provides ample opportunity for improvement. So expect to improve. And you will.

Boldly forward

Be bold. There is no guarantee of success, but there is the guarantee of failure when you don't even make an attempt. Though there is no guarantee of success, you significantly increase the probability of your own success as soon as you take the first step forward.

Boldly take that first step, and the next one, and the next. Suddenly the goal looks infinitely more attainable. Suddenly you will know with confidence that it is within your reach.

Be willing to do whatever is necessary. Doing almost everything necessary is not nearly enough. If you're going to make the effort, then make the full and complete effort. Otherwise it's just a waste of your precious time and energy.

There are plenty of difficult obstacles in your path. Don't allow yourself to become one of them. You can meet the challenges, you can overcome those obstacles, you can achieve success by boldly stepping forward. Once you do, you'll wonder why you ever hesitated.

Yours for a reason

Who have you always dreamed of becoming? What have you always dreamed of doing? How have you always dreamed of living?

There are dreams, and then there are dreams. There are dreams which are merely fantasies and then there are the ones you actually bring to life with your time, your effort and your commitment. The dreams you bring to life are the dreams that have the power to change your life and to change the whole world for the better.

How much life are you giving to your dreams? How much energy do you put into living life on your own terms, into fulfilling the special possibilities that are yours and yours alone?

Take the time and listen to your heart. Invest your time and energy in following your highest and best dreams. They are yours for a reason. Follow your dreams. In so doing you'll bring out your best while contributing to life, and the world around you, in your own special way.

There is a way
After striving for a while and making little or no headway, we're tempted to give up. That's why most people never enjoy any significant kind of success. The winners in life realize that lack of progress is not a reason to give up, but rather a reason to adjust the approach. If one way is not working, there are probably a hundred, or a thousand other approaches that haven't yet been attempted.

There is a way to get where you want to go. If the first few attempts fall short, keep looking for another way. Learn what you can from your disappointing results, and then try a different approach.

Practice being persistent without being stubborn. There's no need to keep doing something that doesn't work. Yet there is no reason to give up. There is a way, and you'll find it when you persist.

Finding yourself at a dead end does not in itself prevent you from reaching your destination. There's another road that will take you there. Keep looking and you'll find it.

Is it worth it?
Of what value are negative thoughts? What great thing has ever been accomplished by someone who truly believed that he could not do it? How much time do you devote to anger? How much energy do you spend on resentment? How much of your effort goes toward envy or revenge? What value will these things ever provide?

Everything has a cost. If you let someone make you angry, you've given a precious part of yourself away to them. Is it worth it? What will it get you? If you let something get you down, it just steals away that much of your life.

You can't really control what other people do, or what they say. Yet you have complete control over the way you respond to the people and events around you. Seeing everything as negative, will accomplish nothing. Make the effort to stay positively focused, regardless of the situation. Look for the good and you will find it. Transcend the need for wasteful negativity, and you'll have more than enough energy for abundant success and fulfillment.

Act quickly
Problems don't go away by themselves, but opportunities do. If you wait for problems to just disappear, they usually get more serious. And if you dawdle while opportunity is knocking, it soon will leave and knock on someone else's door.

If something needs doing, get right on it. Be patient, yes, but do so while taking action. If you're reluctant to do something that needs to be done, consider that it will only get worse, the longer you wait.

How would you like to have super-human strength? Act quickly, and you can solve 10 problems with the same effort it would take to deal with just one problem which has been avoided and grown to serious proportions. The faster you take action, the more effective you can be.

Certainly you don't want to jump without looking, but as soon as you've decided what needs to be done, get busy doing it. Time is your most precious resource and the less time you wait to get started, the less time you'll spend doing it. Get on it right now!

Act quickly
Problems don't go away by themselves, but opportunities do. If you wait for problems to just disappear, they usually get more serious. And if you dawdle while opportunity is knocking, it soon will leave and knock on someone else's door.

If something needs doing, get right on it. Be patient, yes, but do so while taking action. If you're reluctant to do something that needs to be done, consider that it will only get worse, the longer you wait.

How would you like to have super-human strength? Act quickly, and you can solve 10 problems with the same effort it would take to deal with just one problem which has been avoided and grown to serious proportions. The faster you take action, the more effective you can be.

Certainly you don't want to jump without looking, but as soon as you've decided what needs to be done, get busy doing it. Time is your most precious resource and the less time you wait to get started, the less time you'll spend doing it. Get on it right now!

Get out of my head!! :)

Ask by offering
How do you ask for what you desire? Receiving what you ask for is primarily a matter of asking in an effective way.

Begging is not an effective way of asking. Begging puts you at the mercy of the other person. Demanding is not a particularly effective way of asking, either. Demanding things quickly uses up whatever power you may have.

An ideal way to ask is to offer. When you offer, you put yourself in a powerful position. You make yourself much more difficult to deny. Think about it. If someone were constantly begging you for something, or constantly demanding things of you, how willing would you be to comply? Yet if someone were offering you something of value in return, think about what a difference that would make.

You have plenty of valuable things to offer -- your time, your experience, your knowledge, your attention, your understanding. There's never any reason to beg. There's rarely any reason to demand. Effectively get whatever you desire by making a compelling offer.

Keep going
On the other side of the challenge there is a great reward. Keep going.

When you've made the effort and cannot yet see the result, keep going. The very next step could be the one that brings you across the finish line.

When you become weary, remind yourself why you started in the first place. Connect with your true purpose, and feel the energy begin to flow through you again.

Smile and laugh and have a good time on the journey. Be kind and considerate, thoughtful and helpful, and your load will feel lighter, your steps will come more quickly.

As long as you keep going, every inch of progress will make you stronger. Every moment will bring you closer to the goal.

Consider what a joy and a privilege it is to be able to make a difference. Feel that joy, keep going, and make your world brighter with each step you take.

Be the fulfillment
Instead of looking for the answer outside yourself, be the answer you seek. Instead of striving to attain fulfillment, be the fulfillment of your most impassioned stirrings.

The problems you face are yours precisely because you have what it takes to successfully address them. The situations you encounter provide fertile ground upon which you more fully become the best you can be.

The joys and the pains, the achievements and the disappointments, the frustrations and the victories all serve to move you forward. You are destined and well equipped to successfully navigate through each fascinating and valuable turn of events in your world.

You've already come a long way, and that depth of experience continues to serve you well. As the challenges come, as the opportunities appear, your ability to make a difference grows ever stronger and more valuable.

Greet each day with the satisfaction and confidence of knowing that you can adjust and adapt and build and create and thrive. Use the unique energy that is your very own in the service of meaningful and positive purpose.

Work to be the living fulfillment of the best you can imagine. Feel the dream and make it real.

Value already yours
When you take something for granted, you can quickly forget that it's even there. If you take it for granted long enough, it may in fact be gone the next time you look for it.

Why is gratitude so very powerful? Because it keeps you connected to all the good things in your life.

Don't let the immense value that's already yours wander away because of neglect. Take time to remember, take time to celebrate and be grateful, and take time to say thank you.

Instead of continually wishing for more, take a loving and thankful look at all that you already have. By sincerely appreciating what's already yours, you can build upon it to reach any dream you could possibly imagine.

Make it a habit to reflect each day on how truly fortunate you are. It is your awareness that enables your richest blessings to continue unfolding and expanding throughout your world.

See the beauty that's already there, and the value that's already yours. It is more than enough to propel you positively and meaningfully forward.

There is plenty of work to be done. And there are all sorts of effective, fulfilling ways to do it.

The world is alive with all kinds of challenges. Pick a particularly difficult and meaningful one, creatively work your way through it, and bring new prosperity to yourself and others.

Jump into the real-life adventure that sparkles beneath the rising sun each morning. A new day filled with richness is ready to be lived.

Fortune favors those who choose to see it coming. Prosperity belongs to those who work to bring it to life.

Report for duty in the service of your highest vision. This is when life gets good.

Act on who you are
When in doubt about what to do, chose the kindest option. When you're not sure about how much to give of yourself, err on the side of generosity.

When you feel the urge to do something nice for someone else, don't make excuses for why you can't. Just go ahead and make it happen.

Give your attention to your thoughts. And at the same time, pay heed to the intelligence within you that transcends those thoughts.

Without hesitation, go with what you know is right. Act on that little voice that may sound crazy but that feels so true.

Everything you've ever experienced is embedded in your wisdom. Though you cannot consciously remember it all, you can still allow it all to guide you.

Have the confidence to act on who you are and what you know, even if you sometimes cannot explain why. Authenticity is always the best choice.

You have the ability, through your thoughts and your efforts, to create something that has never existed before. And you have the power to choose what that will be.

It is at once a magnificent opportunity and an awesome responsibility. Your thoughts are ultimately chosen by you. Your actions, and their results, will be determined by the things you think about and the things to which you pay attention.

All achievements begin in the mind, and there is no limit to what the mind can think. Everything that anyone has ever invented, built, written, performed, produced or otherwise created, began to take shape first as a conscious thought. Put your highest and best thoughts into disciplined action over a long enough period of time, and you'll create a masterpiece.

What you think about, is what you will do. And what you think about, is up to you.

Getting what you pay for
Have you ever purchased something, and then discovered too late that you paid far too much for it, that you could have easily bought it for much less?

How would you feel if you bought a new television set, and then one week later saw the same model advertised for half of what you paid? It's frustrating to think that you needlessly wasted good money.

Yet how much more frustrating would it be to discover that you've wasted something even more precious than money -- your time and your energy -- and received very little in return?

Think about it. Is the price you pay by being angry, worth what you get in return? Is the price you pay for being sad and depressed, worth the value you receive for it? What price are you paying when you're spiteful, or resentful, or cynical? Are the benefits you receive worth the price you pay?

Life exacts a price as each moment passes by. What you get in return is up to you.

You know what is best for you. You know what you need to do. So why is it so hard to do it? Your thinking mind knows it would be great to get up at six in the morning and exercise, but you have a stronger urge to roll over and go back to sleep.

What will get you out of bed? Indeed, what will get you out of that prison of your own making known as your comfort zone? One of the greatest motivators the world has ever known -- desire. If the desire is strong enough, you will do whatever it takes to achieve it.

How can you make the desire strong enough? First, find what you really, truly want -- not what someone else wants for you, not what others think you should want, what YOU want. Then, connect it clearly and unambiguously within yourself to whatever must be done.

You are willing. You are able. You will do what needs to be done. You can be driven, disciplined and committed. Just connect your actions with your true desires.

You only have so many hours in each day. Time is the most limited resource there is. You can choose to spend that time on the easy stuff, and get a little bit accomplished. Or, you can decide to work on the toughest challenges, and receive maximum return for the time invested.

Think about it. Is it any more painful, or any less desirable to resolve the difficult challenges? No, not really. That's just a perception. The real pain comes from being confronted with the obstacle, not from working to overcome it.

To get maximum results from your efforts, plunge into the most difficult challenges first. You'll stand out from the crowd as an effective problem solver. You'll learn more. You'll develop a much greater degree of confidence. You'll create more value. You'll get farther, faster.

It's done
You made a mistake. Or someone else did. Or perhaps something didn't work out the way it should have.

Whatever it was, it has been done. No amount of agonizing or criticizing will change that. To wish that it had never happened, or to pretend that it didn't, would be a waste of good experience.

Find a way to make the best of it. You can't go backward in time, only forward. And as you go forward, you always have the opportunity to move yourself ahead, regardless of what has happened before.

Make the best of what you have and stop worrying about how you got it. Accept that what's done is done, and focus on the future. Put your energy and effort where they can make a difference, and they will.

One step
No matter how long you've been walking north, in just a single step you can be walking south. What does it take to turn your life around? Just one step.

You are one step away from eating a healthier diet, one step away from being a better parent, one step away from improving your finances, one step away from becoming more skilled in your work, one step away from a more fulfilling relationship.

One minute from now, your worst problems can be behind you, instead of in front of you. In a single step, your best day can be yet to come, rather than long ago in the past. In an instant, your negative energy can be redirected toward making a positive difference.

Just one step can change your momentum, and start you in whatever direction you truly want to go.

Persist
When you're tired and your energy is gone, when problems pile on top of problems, and you don't know where you will get the strength to keep going, that is when the race is almost won.

When you've encountered every obstacle that you could possibly have imagined, and then been faced with many more, you're rapidly approaching your goal.

That is when a little bit more persistence can make a big, big difference. The longer you persevere, the more likely is your success. Each challenge you meet serves to solidify your achievement.

The exhaustion you feel is priming you for the sweet taste of accomplishment which is to come. Keep going for as long as it takes. The steeper the climb, the closer you are to the summit. Persist, especially now.

and, IMO, it was worth the wait
This reminds me of a line from the movie "the outlaw josie whales"
Josie is talking to an old Indian.... and the Indian tells him to
"endeavor to persevere" Ithink of that line often

Small pleasures
Be happy with the little things, because there are so many more of them. Don't postpone your enjoyment of life until after some grand achievement. Strive for that grand achievement, to be sure. And take pleasure in all the joys along the way.

Every day presents you with countless opportunities to experience happiness. There is joy available in each moment, if you really want to find it.

Consider how very much more likely you are to persevere, and to reach that grand achievement, if the path to it is filled with delight. Find enjoyment in the small things, and even in the striving. It will keep you going. Relish the journey, and it will help you reach the destination.

Remember the winning you
What do you remember about yesterday? Do you remember the problems and disappointments, or do you remember the progress and the achievements? What do you remember about last month, or last year, or ten years ago?

What's happened has happened. There is nothing you can do about it. Yet your imagination is yours to control as you wish. You can remember exactly what you choose to remember, in exactly the way you want to remember it.

When you remember mostly the good things, you build an image of yourself as an achiever and a winner. Importantly, that self image has a profound effect on your future actions, and on the results you get. Remember your past as a winner, and you'll act like a winner.

In your mind, treasure the good things in your past, and their memory will brighten your future.

Make the effort
To get from here to there, takes plain old ordinary effort. You can be brimming with a positive attitude, full of superb ideas, smart, experienced, and well connected. Yet even with all that going for you, you still must put out effort in order to make things happen.

There is no substitute for effort. You can work smarter, to be sure, but you must work. There is no magic secret, no technological contraption, no cleverly designed "system" that will replace the need for effort. These things can certainly make your efforts far more effective. Without your effort and initiative, though, they are useless.

The effort necessary for achievement is often difficult and uncomfortable. It will stretch you and likely demand more of you than you thought you had. And therein lies the true reward of success.

Every day you change the world in some way. You cannot avoid doing it. After this day is over, the world will be a little bit different place because of what you have done. Will it be a better place, or worse, or just different? That depends on what you do.

Why should you care? Because you are a part of the world. The positive things you do, come back to you, as do the negative things. You cannot escape the consequences of your own thoughts and actions. So make them the best that you can.

You can change the world. You will change the world. You do change the world. You have the power and the ability to change it for the better, right this moment and every moment. As long as you're going to change the world, you might as well change it in a positive way.

You're changing the world. It's a big responsibility and a tremendous opportunity. Make the best of it, today and every day.

Recipe for greatness
Take something ordinary, add some focus, commitment and effort, and you have greatness. Greatness arises out of the common and the ordinary. The raw material of greatness is nothing special. A magnificent mansion is made out of ordinary wood, bricks and nails. A literary masterpiece is printed on ordinary paper. A beautiful symphony is performed with ordinary musical instruments.

Greatness depends not on what we have to work with, but on what we do with it. Greatness is achieved not because of what we have, but as a result of what we do.

Though greatness by definition is rare, it is within the reach of anyone. Because the greatest greatness comes from common, ordinary beginnings. Whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you have to work with, greatness is always waiting for you to make it happen.

The odds of success
If you desire to achieve success, the odds are against you. Outstanding success is so celebrated and admired precisely because it is so exceptional and difficult to achieve.

In terms of sheer numbers, the odds are against you. But the odds don't matter. Because success does not result from blind chance. There really are no odds, as such. There are only results.

You have every opportunity to make your own results. Your results are not determined by statistical percentages. They are determined by your own action and commitment. The fact that only a small number of people in your position ever make it to the top, has nothing to do with the opportunities available to you. In fact, the more the odds are against you, the more special it makes your achievement.

Put the odds in your favor by refusing to let them limit your possibilities.

Success is tedious
Success is often tedious. When we see success in others, it looks exciting and fun. We see someone who is successful in business living in a magnificent house, driving a shiny new car and taking exotic vacations. We see a successful athlete being cheered by the crowd after a winning performance on the playing field. We usually see only the results of success in others.

What we often fail to see and appreciate is how they got there. The person with a successful business has spent many long, boring hours, working late into the night on tasks that no one would consider fun or exciting. The winning athlete has spent day after day on the practice field and in the weight room, laboriously training mind and body.

Those who understand, appreciate and accept that the road to achievement can often be tiresome, those who are willing to do whatever it takes, no matter if it is often tedious and boring, are the ones who will get the reward they seek.

Commitment
How can you tell if you're fully committed to reaching a particular goal? It's easy. Commitment makes itself evident when the obstacles start to appear.

It's one thing to be excited about beginning a new pursuit. It is something altogether different to keep going long after the initial thrill has faded, when very real and very difficult challenges begin to emerge. Anyone can express their commitment in words. True commitment is shown by actions, by persistence, by the willingness to do whatever it takes.

The only way to be truly and irrevocably committed to a goal, is to make sure that the goal has meaning for you. You absolutely must find a way to personally relate to and connect with the goal. Make that connection, understand precisely what's in it for you, and your commitment will make it happen.

All or nothing
An "all or nothing" approach too often gets us nothing. The attitude of "I'm going to be the best on the team or I won't even play" is self defeating. Success is achieved by degrees. Rarely is it possible to start at the top.

Certainly it is commendable and very worthwhile to aim for the very best. You won't get there unless you go for it. But you won't get there immediately either. In order to reach first place, you must spend some time in fifth, fourth, third and second places. Those who quit just because they came in third instead of first, never make it to the top.

The same principle applies whether you're in a competitive undertaking or not. The reality of any endeavor is that you very likely won't get it perfect. But so what? You're achieving, you're growing, you're improving -- and those are what count. Just because you can't have it all, is no reason to settle for nothing.

Whatever you make
Most anything that happens can be useful to you, or it can set you back, depending primarily on what you make of it.

Get into the habit of asking yourself "how can I make the best of this?" For example, a couple of hours ago I jumped into my car to make a 10-minute run to the post office. Along the way, a 2-inch bolt became imbedded in my right front tire. Now I'm sitting in the waiting room of a tire dealer, getting the damage repaired.

I could have spend a few hours fretting about the loss of my time, and how unfair it was. And I must admit, I did spend a few minutes in that mode. But then I asked myself, "how can I make the best of this?" The answer -- get out a pen and paper and write this message.

The various circumstances in which you find yourself can serve as excuses, or they can be turned into opportunities. What's great about the time and place in which you find yourself? Whatever you make of it.

Shine
Just one light can make a big difference, when there is darkness all around. When you turn on a light in an already lighted room, you make it just a little bit brighter. But when you turn on a light in a room that was completely dark, you significantly change the environment. The light reveals possibilities. It make obstacles less menacing. It makes the situation clearer and easier to understand.

The more you are surrounded by negativity, the more impact you can have by being positive. Just one person who insists that yes, we can get it done, and who steadily works to make it happen, can achieve astonishing results.

If there is negative energy all around you, see it as an opportunity. Consider how much of a difference you can make with your positive thoughts and actions. Turn on your own light, and those nearby cannot help but see. The darker it is around you, the brighter your light will shine.

The past is history, that is true. It cannot be changed. But when we ignore and fail to respect the past, we put the future at risk. Though the past cannot be changed, still it is valuable for what it can teach. Attempting to live in the past is folly. Yet learning from the past is the cornerstone of wisdom.

The past can be an entirely positive influence because we are able to take from it only that which is useful, and transcend the rest. The past is compelling only to the extent that we make it so.

Though the past has already happened and you cannot change it, you can take from it precisely what you want to take -- nothing more and nothing less. And because everything you currently know came from the past, that puts you in complete control of your life and your world. Your past does not control you. You control it.

Predict the future
The most successful people in this world have a highly refined ability to very accurately predict the future. Is it the result of some mysterious psychic power? No. Does this ability come from having a superior intelligence? No. Is it based on having the right connections? No.

Successful people very accurately predict the future using a methodology that is available to anyone, regardless of age, income bracket, place of residence, experience, or any other special factor. Anyone, anywhere can predict their own future with amazing accuracy.

It is simple. Just set a goal for yourself, determine exactly what actions you must take to reach that goal, and then take every one of those actions. The moment you decide on a course of action and make a solid commitment to following it, you've predicted your own future.

Anyone can follow the example of the most successful people in the world. Predict your own bright, shining future, and then take the action to make it happen.

Seek challenge
Challenge is a requisite part of any achievement. The more effectively you can meet challenges, the more you'll be able to achieve. Not only does challenge pull you toward achievement, it also strengthens you so that you may successfully face the even greater challenges that lead to even higher accomplishments.

That's why it is so important to continually challenge yourself. There's no question that difficult challenges will come with each new thing you attempt. So it pays to be prepared.

Seek out small challenges, and by so doing you gain the ability to triumph in the face of even bigger ones. Growth comes at a price, and challenge is a major part of that price.

Get used to challenge. Get experienced with overcoming challenges. Challenge yourself, and you'll remain strong in the face of the challenges which the world will surely send your way. Embrace challenge, and it becomes an opportunity rather than an obstacle.

Great experience

Experience is something that can never be taken away from you. Though the material things you possess will rust, fade, peel, crack, break and become obsolete, the experiences you live through will stay with you always.

Every day is filled with so many opportunities to experience the richness of life. Yet it's all too easy to get into comfortable habits and fail to take advantage of those opportunities.

The greatest treasures you'll ever have are the moments you spend living life fully, moments spent with those you love and care about, moments lived passionately in pursuit of a vision, a dream or an accomplishment.

As you go through this day, keep in mind what an incredible, irreplaceable, great experience life is. Wherever you go, whatever your circumstance, fill the moments with meaning and richness. Today is a special day, a day to be alive. Live it with joy, with wonder and intensity. Your great experience is happening now

good thread, good post(s)

Get with it
Go ahead. Though you won't get it perfect, you will get it done. Jump right in. Though you may not have quite enough experience, you'll gain it quickly. Reach for your highest dreams. Though you don't have all the answers, you'll soon learn what questions to ask.

The perfect time to start will never come if you wait for it. Get started now and do your best. Your efforts matter much more than mere circumstances.

You can watch the world change, or you can change it. It will change today with or without you. The more input you have into that change, the more you'll like the results. Forget the excuses. They will bring you no value. Step up and give the best that you have.

Accomplishment is a thrill which has no equal. Remember how good it feels? You can have all you want. And now is the time to go for it. Stand up, step out and make a difference.

Confront it
The worst thing you can do when faced with a challenge is to run away from it. Because it will come after you, and will gain even more strength. If you think it's bad now, just wait until it has grown bigger and stronger. You'll regret that you did not choose to face it sooner.

Confront your challenges as quickly as you can. You'll make far more progress that way. Going forward through the obstacles may indeed be difficult. Yet it is a far better path than going backwards in retreat.

Sooner or later you must work your way through the challenges that stand between you and your goals. The sooner you do it, the better. It will never be easy, but there's no need to make it more difficult than it has to be.

Move yourself forward. Push a little harder when you need to. Confront the challenges as they come, get them quickly behind you, and you can go as far as you want.

Honor
Honor this beautiful day by making the most of it. Honor your skills and abilities by making full use of them. Honor the people around you by acting respectfully and responsibly.

No matter what kind of troubles you may have, just think of how fortunate you are to be alive and living in a world where almost anything is possible. Consider for a moment the good things you have, and the good things that you can accomplish through your willingness, determination and action.

Honor and appreciate the good things you have by seeing the positive in every situation. Honor your work by giving it value and making it count. Honor the powerful bundle of possibilities that is your life. Make the most of every single moment. The things you honor will grow, bringing many blessings to enrich your world.

Unspoken priorities
Your priorities are evidenced not by what you announce, but by what you become. Look around you and observe the things you've accomplished. Look inside of you and see the person you are. Take a good look at your life and you'll see your true priorities.

If you're not completely satisfied with where your priorities have taken you, that's OK. You can change your priorities. However, you can't change them just by saying so. Priorities are not a wish list. Your authentic, driving priorities are commitments to action. Your true priorities are the things for which you'll undertake any effort, meet any challenge, or make any necessary sacrifice in order to achieve or maintain.

The fact is, you will most certainly achieve your true priorities. You've always done it and you always will. Whatever you want enough to live for, you'll get. That's an awesome power, and it is yours to direct as you wish. Choose your true priorities wisely, and they'll take you to magnificent heights.

Someone had a dream
The car you drive was designed and built because someone had a dream. The highway on which you travel is there because someone had a dream. The telephone you talk on and the worldwide network to which it is connected, was constructed because someone had a dream. Achievement begins with a dream.

Yet there are many, many dreams which wither and die without ever coming to pass. We will never know the benefits which they could have brought. Great accomplishments come about not only because someone dreamed of them, but also because someone believed in the dream enough to walk the long, hard road of making that dream a reality.

It takes a dream. And then it takes more than a dream. What is yours? And what are you doing about it? Stop and think for a moment about all the great things that have ever been achieved. Someone had a dream. Someone just like you. The world is filled with possibilities today. Take your pick, and then make it happen.

Connect your goals to your actions
Every action you take today will either move you closer to your chosen goal or farther away from it. There's something you intend to achieve, and the way to achieve it is through action.

There is a very real connection between the things you do and the outcomes you experience. Keep that in mind as you go through the day. Keep that in mind as you decide how to spend your time. Keep that in mind as you control your own thoughts and actions.

Connect your goals to your actions and you will reach those goals. Focus on the outcome of what you're doing, moment by moment. You can choose to just get through the day, or you can decide to make it count and to move yourself forward.

There is a road that runs from where you are right now to the fulfillment of the goals you have chosen. As you go through this day, stay on that road. Keep the connection strong. Take the actions which will move you ahead.
