You have a responsibility to grow yourself. You have a responsibility not only to your family , but also to your future to grow your talents, your skills.

Do you think you can grow without a plan? Do you think you can avoid distractions without a plan? If you really want to achieve your goals, you need a plan.

Here are Orison Swett Marden quotes that will help you get to where you want to go:

“We make the world we live in and shape our own environment.”- Orison Swett Marden

Whether you like it or not, whether you want to hear it or not, you are a product of your environment. If you want to succeed in your life, you must surround yourself with positive, intelligent, hard working people. Do not be around negative people. Be around people who are ready and willing to stretch you, to build you, to take you to the next level, to bring out the best in you. There are people who are smarter than you are. There are people who have done what you are planning to do. Reach out to them. Open your mind to learn from their mistakes, their struggles, their failures, their disappointments. Do not focus on what they have, focus on how they got there. You can find winners right where you are just by paying attention to what you want to achieve in your life. But if you don’t pay attention to people who can help you grow your life, you miss it.

“All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.”- Orison Swett Marden

What do you want? What do you want out of life? Where are you going? Do you have a plan to get there? Do you know exactly what you want? Do you have what it takes to get it done? If not, what are you going to do to make your dream happen? What are you doing to improve your life? What steps are you taking to improve your life?

To achieve your goals, to make your life a masterpiece, you must know where you are going. It is your responsibility to find out what makes you happy. No matter what you do, you can always make yourself better than you were last year. Remember, if you are not stretching yourself, you are reducing yourself. Life is short to limit yourself. And whatever you want to do to improve your life, do it now. Because procrastination is a dream killer.

The Power Of Faith

Augustine of Hippo was right when he said, “Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe.” Faith is a motivator. Faith believes in himself. She is not scared of anything. She believes in hard work. She is a positive thinker.

Faith is a dreamer. She doesn’t believe in empty dreams. Faith loves action. Even if the road is dark, it does not stop Faith from taking action. Faith loves uncertainty. She is a master of uncertainty. Faith does not wait for people to tell her what to do. She starts things. She is the master of her life.

When you come in contact with Faith, just be yourself. Faith is strength. With faith, there is nothing you cannot achieve. Because when the going gets really tough, it is faith that will keep you going. Faith wants you to prepare for tomorrow today. She wants you to take risks. She wants you to build your own dreams. She wants you to believe in yourself.

She does not believe in procrastination. Faith believes in action. If you are not ready to change your life, do not meet with Faith.
