Our conduct should show that we are on this earth to play a magnificent part in life’s drama, to make a splendid contribution to humanity.
Orison Swett Marden
You are important! You have a wonderful gift to offer this world. What is it?
Are you still searching for it?
In quiet and stillness you will know and once you know let nothing distract you from cultivating it and sharing it with others.
Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them.
W. Clement Stone
You are responsible for how your life turns out, and your attitude shapes that life for better or worse.
“Beside us in our seeking after pleasures,
Through all our restless striving after fame,
Through all our search for worldly gains and treasures,
There walketh one whom no man likes to name.
Silent he follows, veiled of form and feature,
Indifferent if we sorrow or rejoice,
Yet that day comes when every living creature
Must look upon his face and hear his voice.
When that day comes to you, and Death, unmasking,
Shall bar your path, and say, “Behold the end,”
What are the questions that he will be asking
About your past? Have you considered, friend?
I think he will not chide you for your sinning,
Nor for your creeds or dogmas will he care;
He will but ask, “From your life’s first beginning
How many burdens have you helped to bear?”
Poems of Power
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Do not say to yourself, ‘I am going to act this way tomorrow.’ Just say to yourself – ‘I am going to imagine myself acting this way NOW – for 30 minutes – today.’
