The Daily Motivator for Jan. 27th – Making the effort

Making the effort

When you don’t feel like making the effort, the thing that will help you more  than anything else is to go ahead and make that effort. Even when you are too  tired or too bored, too distracted or too dismayed, the way out is to get busy  and put forth effort.

Wishing for things to be better won’t make things better. What will make  things better is taking positive, focused action.

Making excuses won’t make things right. The way forward is to make a real  difference by making a real effort.

Just because it’s difficult, uncomfortable and inconvenient, doesn’t mean  it’s impossible. You have what it takes to take effective action, and that is a  powerfully positive thing to do.

Instead of wasting your priceless time with procrastination, make good use of  the time that’s now yours. Spend that time making a meaningful difference.

What you get out of life depends on what you get out of yourself. Make the  effort, again and again, and give much more beautiful and meaningful life to all  of life.

Thoughts for Thursday, Oct. 20 – Things I’ve Learned

  • I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.


  • I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.


  • I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.


  • I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.”


  • I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.


  • I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.


  • I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.


  • I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.

 

  • People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.


  • I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.


  • I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

OH MY AGING FUNNY BONE…
