Integrity is promise made promise kept. If you say one thing and do another, you have broken your promise.
If you want to live a great life, always do what you say you will do. People will trust you. People will want to be with you. People will always tell you their secrets. People will nominate you for a leadership position, because they know you will not let them down.
Robert W. Service said, “A promise made is a debt unpaid.” There is respect in doing what you say you will do. There is trust in doing what you say you will do. Don’t promise A, and do B. People will not trust you. Once you lose your trust, you can’t really do anything of value on your own. You need people to help you succeed. No one succeeds alone.
“Wall your talk.” Do what you say you will do, and people will be ready to help you do it.
One of the reasons we live is to get things done. But to get a lot of things done in life, there are so many things that have to come together to make them happen. If you get this one thing right, you will reach your goal faster than you ever imagined possible.
“All successful people have a goal. No one can get anywhere unless he knows where he wants to go and what he wants to be or do.”- Norman Vincent Pearle
What is this one thing? Wherever you want to go in life, you need something to get you there. You can’t start going without this one thing. In order to do well in life, this is what you need to know: LEARN HOW TO SET SMART GOALS. Nothing else. If you master the art of goal-setting, you have mastered everything.
To move from point A to Point B, you need to have a plan. You need to have a goal. If not, you are not going anywhere. Even if you manage to go somewhere, you are not going to go too far. You need a goal to reach your destination.
“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the actions steps.”- Confucius
Your goal is your road map. It is your plan that will get you to where you want to be. It is the plan that will move you from where you are now to where you want to be. In order to make this happen, don’t set goals that you can’t achieve. Set small goals, not vague goals. You must set a realistic goal for yourself. The people who are doing well are those who set great goals for themselves.
If you set great goals for yourself, there is nothing you cannot achieve in life. Set one for yourself, and commit yourself to making it a reality.
To enjoy your work is to love it. If you don’t love what you do, you can’t be happy doing it. Friend, whatever it is that you do for a living, take it seriously. It matters. What you do matters. Take pride in what you do. It does not matter what you do. What matters is you feel about it. What matters is how you are doing your job. What matters is what the job is giving you.
In the words of Marcus Tullius Cicero, “Whatever you do, do it with all your might.” Whether you are a CEO or a cleaner, your job matters. Respect what you do, and you will find happiness in it.
People are not happy with their jobs because they don’t believe in what they are doing. They don’t believe in their jobs. The CEO’s job is not better than yours. If you think so, think again.
If you want to make your own job meaningful, change how you think, see, and do your job. Everything is all about perception. If you think your job is bad, it is bad. If you think your job is the best, it is the best. Make your job the best, and you will enjoy it.
Time management is doing more of what will make you a better human being, and doing less of what will destroy your life. The way you use your time determines the results you will get. Some people are good at managing their time well. Others are not so good at managing their time well.
If you want to be productive, to get results, to do more with less, you must manage your time well. It is very important to your growth and development. You cannot grow if you don’t know how to spend your time well. Time is a currency. If you spend your time well, you will be successful. But if you waste your time, you will be poor. The difference between the rich and the poor is how they use their time. Good time management is the way to success.
Use your time well. Don’t spend your time on small
things that have no power to impact your life. Spend your time on the things
that can change your life. If you have something important to do, no matter how
you feel about it, get to work and do it. If you fail to do what is important,
you will fail to reach your goal. If you don’t have time, make time. You can.
Don’t use “I don’t have time” to set yourself back. Use “I can do it” attitude
to push yourself forward. A positive attitude is all that you need to make a
Charles Buxton said, “You will never find time for
anything. If you want time, you must make it.” If you want to change your life,
your health, your business, your relationships, you MUST make time. You must
create time to do the right thing, and the right thing will come to you.
