food for the soul :)

quotes…

I love Og Mandino, such a great author of amazing inspirational books, my favorite was his’ “12th Angel”, and he is known for his quotes too and by the way, I get so inspired that as much as possible, I try to live by these quotes, gives me a sense of strength, clarity and direction.

“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.

Always render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be.

Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity.

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.

Do all things with love.

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.

I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.

I have never heard anything about the resolutions of the apostles, but a good deal about their acts.

I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.

I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.

It is those who concentrates on but one thing at a time who advance in this world. The great man or woman is the one who never steps outside his or her specialty or foolishly dissipates his or her individuality.

Love doesn’t sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread: remade all the time, made new.

Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats.

Sound character provides the power with which a person may ride the emergencies of life instead of being overwhelmed by them. Failure is… the highway to success.

Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new.

The only certain means of is to render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be.

The person who knows one thing and does it better than anyone else, even if it only be the art of raising lentils, receives the crown he merits. If he raises all his energy to that end, he is a benefactor of mankind and its rewarded as such.”

The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them. Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams.

There is an immeasurable distance between late and too late.

To be always intending to make a new and better life but never to find time to set about it is as to put off eating and drinking and sleeping from one day to the next until you’re dead.

To do anything truly worth doing, I must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in with gusto and scramble through as well as I can.

Tomorrow is only found in the calendar of fools.

Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has” vanished.

Work as though you would live forever, and live as though you would die today. Go another mile!

You never know what events are going to transpire to get you home.
