I just thought I’d share a few inspirational quotes that I’ve either lived by in the past, or am planning on living by in this new year, and for the rest of my live. This is what my mom shared with me for the New Year of 2013, “As I look at the year ahead, I will not make any resolutions rather live by the most wise words ever spoke to me which are,
“You can’t keep throwing shit in the air and expect it to rain chocolate!” by: Chris Flaker (My uncle)”
“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” I thought this was well said. I feel like a lot of people set goals and never accomplish them because they’re not willing to take the first step. Or they don’t see how it is possible. They don’t see step by step how they’re going to accomplish it, and even after the first step they don’t see any possible way, so they’re trying to finish the whole goal before they even start. For example, let’s say you want to open your own business, but you don’t have any of the resources or any knowledge of how to even begin. Instead of just starting with the first step which could be getting a degree in business, or calling your successful aunt or twice removed cousin. You try to over look the whole thing and talk yourself out of it because you don’t know what to do after the first step. you’ve got to take baby steps, one step at a time.
I hate the voice in your head that tells you, “What If.” It always gets me thinking, “What if I had listened to my mom that one time.” “What if I did go to that party?” “How would my life be different if I had befriended this person?” What if your whole life was filled with the words, “I wish,” and “What if?” I’m going to make it my goal to fill my life with, “I’m so proud of myself.” and “I can’t believe I actually did that.” Those are the kind of things I want to remember. I don’t want to spend my life wondering what I could have done or should have done. I want stories to share with my grand kids. I am going to be successful. “One of the best places to start to turn your life around is by doing whatever appears on your mental “I should” list.” – Jim Rohn
I’ve met a couple of people in my life who only focus on the negatives. For example my dad, my dad is the type of person who pours over every little detail of everything and loves to focus on what could go wrong, but he’s also REALLY good at saving and managing money. He’s WAY smart, he can build and fix ANYTHING I’m talking take a part a car and put the whole thing back together, he’s really good with computers, and he’s a personal trainer. My mom is the type of person who comes up with an idea and just does it. There’s no stopping her when she sets her mind to something. If she decides were going to Disneyland next month, she’ll make it happen. If we have no money to go or not she always makes it happen. She’ll find a way to raise money, whether it be shoveling driveways, mowing lawns, or spending everyday trying to win tickets on the radio. My mom owns 2 successful businesses, one of them is, “The Beach Masters.” She’s not good at handling money though. We would be bankrupt without my dad. But that’s why they’re good for each other, opposites attract right. I take after my mom, If I set my mind to something I get it done. That’s why I admire my parents, my dad can teach me how to manage money, and my mom inspires me to get things done, and to always look at the positive of things. I get the best of both worlds! The message of that whole spill was to always have a positive outlook at live, no matter the odds!
I hope you guys have a wonderful 2013 filled with ton’s of great experiences! if you have ANY, “I’m proud of myself,” or “I’m glad did that” moments comment them or send them to our E-mail! I would love to hear them! I want to Leave you with another quote from Jim Rohn, “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much” – Jim Rhon
