“Make a Promise or Set a Goal?”


“Here are two ways to put ourselves in control of our lives immediately.   We can make a promise – and keep it.   Or we can set a goal – and work to achieve it.   As we make and keep commitments, even small commitments, we begin to establish an inner integrity that gives us the awareness of self-control and the courage and strength to accept more of the responsibility for our own lives.   By making and keeping promises to ourselves and others, little by little, our honor becomes greater than our moods.”     (Stephen R. Covey, Daily Reflections for Highly Effective People)


“Courage is not defined by those who fought and did not fall, but by those fought, fell and rose again.”      (Unknown)


Weakness fixing might prevent failure, but strength building leads to excellence.   Focus on strength, and manage around weaknesses.”     (Marcus Buckingham), coauthor of First, Break All the Rules and Now, Discover Your Strength)


“History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heart-breaking obstacles before they triumphed.  They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.”       (B. C. Forbes)
