The Best Time is Now!

The fore-most strategy of the enemy to make you fail is procrastination. You must always realize that is the time to be creative and productive. If you want to make an easy job look difficult; then just keep putting it off. In fact, a duty dodged is like a dept unpaid, it is only deferred but we must still come back and settle the account at last.

Work is the best weapon ever invented for killing time. Most individuals really usually attach a condition to their stepping out. They keep waiting until things change, until there is more time, until they are less tired, until they get a promotion, until they settle down, until this, until that. It always looks like there are some major events that must occur in their live before they step out. ‘One of these days’ is really ‘None of these days’. The by and by never comes.

Those who desire, but don’t act will always breed stagnation. Always do today what you want to postpone until tomorrow. Do not allow idleness to deceive you; for while you give him today, he steals tomorrow from you.

Indeed, nothing is as fatiguing as the eternal hanging of an uncompleted task. When an individual gets into the habit of wasting time, then they are sure of wasting a great deal that does not belong to them.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “One day today is worth two tomorrows. What may be done at anytime will definitely be done at no time.”

Life is indeed like a taxi. The meter keeps ticking whether you’re moving or standing still.

The successful person does the thing that others never get around to. Whatever the fool does at the end, the wise man does at the beginning.

Prolonged idleness paralyzes initiatives. Tomorrow is the busiest day of the week. In it, there is a hill to climb. Never think that waiting will make it any smaller.

A sluggard will always take a hundred steps simply because he would not take a concrete bold step in due time. If possible, make the decision now, even if it is in the future, there is indeed danger in delay simply because it is always better to reap two days too soon than one day too late. A man who waits until the last always ends up being pitied. Whlie the foolish enjoys the little he has, the wise would hunt for more. The way to hunt for more is to simply untilize your odd moments. A wise man called Arthur Brisbane also once said that the man who is always killing time is really killing his own chances in life.

Therefore, act now, because Procrastination is indeed the mother of Frustration!

The Power of Concentration

There are usually various opportunities all around us, but what matters is where you put your focus. Always ask yourself this question everyday: "Where should my focus be?". Wherever you focus your attention, you will definitely create strength and momentum.

Always be single-minded. Be stable in the pursuit of your goal. Be limitlessly passionate about it. Be intensely concentrated, have a boundless vision and a definite commitment to excellence.

It is focus (concentration) that opens the door to accomplishments. Infact, the first law of success is concentration, that is, the ability to bend all the energies and efforts to one point and then going to that particular point.

The most successful people today are those of focus, who have struck their blows in one place until they have accomplished their purpose. They usually have one specific idea, one steady aim, a single and concentrated purpose.

There is usually a great disparity between some people’s dreams and the results they achieve. This is simply due to the difference in their commitment to bring all their abilities and focus them towards a specific point.

There are two basic ways to fail - to take nobody’s advice and also taking everybody’s advice. Always learn to say No to the good so you can say Yes to the best. We accomplish things simply by directing our desires to one point, not by ignoring them. Imagine the immense powers you will possess when you process specific aims or goals. Infact, your words and your actions will be improved only when you begin to live for a reason.

Don’t be a person who is uncertain about the future and even hazy about the present. Make something your specialty. You can never find until you define. Life is like a race; to finish the race, you must remain on one track. Always learn to define yourself. Try to content yourself with some specific goals and definite works. Dare to be who you really are.
