FOOD FOR THOUGHT #6

Thursday, November 01, 2012

PROGRESS HAS BEEN DEFINED AS THAT DEGREE OF DISSATISFACTION WITH THE PRESENT WHICH CAUSES US TO ADOPT NEW AND BETTER WAYS OF DOING THINGS. EDISON KEPT A SIGN OVER HIS DESK UNTIL THE DAY HE DIED THAT READ - "THERE'S A BETTER WAY TO DO IT, FIND IT."

THE UNWILLINGNESS TO ADOPT NEW WAYS HAS ALWAYS BEEN A JAILER OF PROGRESS.

WE CANNOT ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING EXCEPT THAT WHICH WE ARE. BEFORE WE CAN DO WE MUST FIRST BE. JUST AS WATER CANNOT RISE ABOVE ITS SOURCE, THE PERFORMANCE CAN BE NO BETTER THAN THE PERFORMER.

SELF-DISCIPLINE IS A FIRST STEP TOWARD MEANINGFUL SELF-IMPROVEMENT, WITH YOUR OPPORTUNITIES BEING LIMITED ONLY BY TIME AND WHAT YOU DO WITH IT.

A CORNERSTONE OF SELF-IMPROVEMENT IS THE DEGREE OF YOUR COMMITMENT.

ALWAYS BE MINDFUL OF THE FACT - CONFLICT IS THE BIRTH-PLACE OF CREATIVITY.

THE LESSON I MUST LEARN IS SIMPLY THAT MY CONTROL IS LIMITED TO MY OWN BEHAVIOR, MY OWN ATTITUDES. TODAY CAN BE MY NEW BEGINNING.
