and getting a lot of yardwork done

Got this link this week
It is worth sharing

here's the basic info if you don't want to read the entire article

There are three basic ingredients necessary for finding success, regardless of the specifics of your quest. And, since the desire for ownership is the driving force behind acquisition, Iíll use the word OWN as an acronym for my simple three-item formula for success:

1. O - Opportunity: One of the most important components in finding success is being able to identify opportunity. It is to success what wind is to sailing. You simply canít have one without the other. Identifying opportunity is the first step; awareness sets your sails for success while your motivation provides the wind.

The problem is that too many people get so caught up in their daily struggle they donít see the opportunities around them.

2. W - Wisdom: By definition, wisdom is the judicious application of knowledge. In other words, itís not what you know so much as itís what you do with what you know. Wisdom involves more than just knowing; it requires clear understanding, keen insight and good judgment. Once opportunity is identified, you must use all your inner resources to grab it and make the most of it. Likewise, wisdom means knowing your limitations. Finding success when opportunity presents itself often means reaching out for help in areas where you have weakness or lack of knowledge.

3. N - Never Give Up: This might possibly be the most important element in my formula for success. The key is to first break your quest down into workable parts so you donít feel overwhelmed, and then to work each part relentlessly with both passion and purpose. It takes perseverance to succeed. Having a ďnever give upĒ attitude keeps you moving in the face of adversity and becomes the driving force behind most success stories.

Hope you had a Fabulous Friday !
Have a Wonderful Weekend !
