Iwanted to begin by saying thanks to all those who reached out after yesterday’s blog and for those that send me an email when a principle hits close to home. It is by far the best part of the time spent on these blogs. So keep-em coming. Today we close out the book with a few more quotes that have hit really close to home. Legggooo!!
- “Gods gift to us: Potential. Our gift to God: Developing It.” – Ain’t that the truth? God has blessed us in incredible ways. Use those blessings to be a force of good, which develops the lives of many others as you continue to develop yours.
- “Life begins at the end of our comfort zone.” – A-freakin-men! The innovators and the creators of this world are the movers and the shakers. They are the doers. They are the dreamers. They are the believers. They don’t conform, they create. They don’t settle for average. I love this quote and the principle behind it.
- “For all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: It might have been.” – Once again, never allow yourself to bear the burden of would of’s, should of’s, and could of’s.
- “If you want to grow and change, you must take risks.” – Too many people sit around and wait for the “perfect time” to make a move. They wait for the perfect time to build their business, make the sale, improve their health, and increase their relationships. There is no perfect time. The time is now. If you want to accomplish something that the rest of the world is not accomplishing, do the things that the rest of the world isn’t doing.
- “If you won’t be better tomorrow than you were today, then what do you need tomorrow for?” – What is the point of tomorrow if you are not going to fully maximize it? What is the point if you are not going to push towards your passions, your purposes and your why’s? If we are not actively engaged in becoming better today then yesterday, we will not have long term happiness.
- “While we don’t always get what we want, we always get what we choose.” – Whether you choose to be in-effective or you choose to be great, they both take 24 hours a day. Which do you choose?
- “If you want something you have never had, you will have to do something you have never done to get it.” – Very simple advice that is not so simple to maintain. But it is a promise the the good Lord and the Universe have bestowed upon us. Meaning, if we want something bad enough, and we work hard enough for it, we will ALWAYS get it!
- “Most people are capable of making a living. That’s the safe thing. The significant thing is making a difference.” – Here, here. If you want to do something that people talk about for a long time to come, and if you want to have long term happiness, build your life around serving others. This concept will never let you down long term.
- “Most unsuccessful people accept their day, tuning things out, simply hoping to endure it. Most successful people seize their day, focusing in, ignoring distractions.” – Once again, it goes back to the concept of getting better every day. Growing a little bit more. Life is good when you are growing.
- “I believe that it honors God when we enjoy life and live it well.” – This is probably my favorite quote of them all. Just like we want our own children to have every opportunity in life and to be happy; God wants the same thing for us. We live in the richest, most abundant land in the world. Go after what is rightfully yours.
I recommend this book to anyone who really does want to become better. Who really does want to grow. Who really does wants a needed push to take action. The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth will help you accomplish that and so much more. Life is good people. Create the life you want! Live it! Love it!
Simply loving it, Cram
