Affirmation: I may not be the most talented but I am the most motivated
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful
Men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.
GRATITUDE IS THE HEART’S
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we
Have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance,
Chaos into order, confusion into clarity. It turns problems
Into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect
Timing and mistakes into important events. Gratitude
Makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates
A vision for tomorrow.
