Only rest long enough to gather strength.Without constant activity, the threats of life will soon overwhelm the values.The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch.For every promise, there is a price to pay.

That's what America is all about - I (individual) and all (all of us). When all of us understand howvaluable each of us is, that's powerful. And here's what else is powerful: When each of us understands how powerful all of us are.In America we have the greatest chance for opportunity than anyone else in the past six and a half thousand years. Never in recorded history have so manydifferent gifts from all over the world been deposited in one country.In America, everything you need to succeed is within reach.

One of the great conservative documents of the world is the Constitution of the United States. We need both documents to build a country. One to get it started - liberal. And the other to help maintain the structure over the years -conservative.

Make sure you don't go to the ocean with a teaspoon. At least take a bucket so the kids won't laugh at you.There is no better opportunity to receive more than to be thankful for what you already have. Thanksgiving opens the windows of opportunity for ideas to flowyour way.Resolve says, I will. The man says, I will climb this mountain. They told me it is too high, too far, too steep, too rocky and too difficult. But it's my mountain.I will climb it. You will soon see me waving from the top or dead on the side from trying. Disgust and resolve are two of the great emotions that lead to change.

Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying basic fundamentals.There are no new fundamentals. You've got to be a little suspicious of someone who says, I've got a new fundamental. That's like someone inviting you to toura factory where they are manufacturing antiques.Some things you have to do every day. Eating seven apples on Saturday night instead of one a day just isn't going to get the job done.Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. It is theaccumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgments that leads us to either fortune or failure.

You can also find a crust of bread in agarbage can, if you search long enough, but there is a better way.Most homes valued at over $250,000 have a library. That should tell us something.Everything you need for your better future and success has already been written. And guess what? It's all available. All you have to do is go to the library. Butwould you believe that only three percent of the people in America have a library card. Wow, they must be expensive! No, they're free. And there's probably alibrary in every neighborhood. Only three percent!Some people read so little they have rickets of the mind.I now have one of the better libraries. I admit that I haven't read everything in my library, but I feel smarter just walking in it.Don't just read the easy stuff. You may entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.The book you don't read won't help.Books are easy to find and easy to buy. A paperback these days only costs six or seven dollars. You can borrow that from your kids!It isn't what the book costs; it's what it will cost if you don't read it.

If you don't feel well, tell your doctor, but not the marketplace. If you need money, go to the bank,but not the marketplace.If you make a sale, you can make a living. If you make an investment of time and good service in a customer, you can make a fortune.Don't just let your business or your job make something for you; let it make something of you.Lack of homework shows up in the marketplace as well as in the classroom.Where you start in the marketplace is not where you have to stay.The worst days of those who enjoy what they do are better than the best days of those who don't.We get paid for bringing value to the marketplace. It takes time to bring value to the marketplace, but we get paid for the value, not the time.

How tall will a tree grow? As tall as it possibly can. Human beings, on the other hand,have been given the dignity of choice. You can choose to be all or you can choose to be less. Why not stretch up to the full measure of the challenge and seewhat all you can do?You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.Decision making can sometimes seem like inner civil war.Don't say, If I could, I would. Say, If I can, I will. It doesn't matter which side of the fence you get off on sometimes. What matters most is getting off!You cannot make progress without making decisions.We generally change ourselves for one of two reasons: inspiration or desperation.If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.I used to say, I sure hope things will change. Then I learned that the only way things are going to change for me is when I change.

Let people be surprised that it was more than you promised and easier than you said.For effective communication, use brevity. Jesus said, Follow me. Now that's brief! He could be brief because of all that he was that he didn't have to say.You cannot speak that which you do not know. You cannot share that which you do not feel. You cannot translate that which you do not have. And you cannotgive that which you do not possess. To give it and to share it, and for it to be effective, you first need to have it. Good communication starts with goodpreparation.The goal of effective communication should be for listeners to say, Me, too! verses So what? Learn to express, not impress.Be brief on the logic and reason portion of your presentation. There are probably about a thousand facts about an automobile, but you don't need them all tomake a decision. About a half dozen will do.Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.What is powerful is when what you say is just the tip of the iceberg of what you know.It's not the matter you cover so much as it is the manner in which you cover it.For effective communication, use brevity. Jesus said, Follow me. Now that's brief! He could be brief because of all that he was that he didn't have to say.You cannot speak that which you do not know. You cannot share that which you do not feel. You cannot translate that which you do not have. And you cannotgive that which you do not possess. To give it and to share it, and for it to be effective, you first need to have it.

When you play, play. Don't mix the two.Give whatever you are doing and whoever you are with the gift of attention.On the way to work, concentrate on the way - not the work.Pay attention. Don't just stagger through the day.

But there is a difference between a must and a want. The best motivation is self-motivation. The guy says, I wish someone would come by and turn me on. What if they don't show up? You've got to have a betterplan for your life.When you know what you want, and you want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.

The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.All disciplines affect each other. Mistakenly the man says, This is the only area where I let down. Not true. Every let down affects the rest. Not to think so isnaive.Discipline is the foundation upon which all success is built. Lack of discipline inevitably leads to failure.Discipline has within it the potential for creating future miracles.The best time to set up a new discipline is when the idea is strong.One discipline always leads to another discipline.Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.You don't have to change that much for it to make a great deal of difference. A few simple disciplines can have a major impact on how your life works out in thenext 90 days, let alone in the next 12 months or the next 3 years.The least lack of discipline starts to erode our self-esteem.

Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracleprocess all begins.If someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn't need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around.Don't see the mind for more than it is, but don't misread it for all that it can be.Sharpen your interest in two major subjects: life and people. You will only gather information from a source if you are interested in it.Education must precede motivation.While you are in school, make sure you get the information. What you think about it, that's up to you. What you are going to do with it that will soon be up toyou. But while you are there, make sure you get it. In fact, my advice is © Don't leave school without it!Never begrudge the money you spend on your own education.If you step up the self-education curve, you will come up with more answers than you can use.

It is important to know how to feel, how to respond, and how to let life in so that it can touch you.Civilization is the intelligent management of human emotions.Measure your emotions. You don't need an atomic explosion for a minor point.Women have an incredible ability to pick up on emotional signals. For example, there are some wolves that are so clever they have learned to dress up likesheep. Man says, Looks like a sheep. Talks like a sheep. Woman says, Ain't no sheep!
