9 Simple Truths for Living Wise

 
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
~Reinhold Niebuhr~
 
 


1.    A little progress is better than no progress at all. Success comes in taking many small steps.
 
2.    You have to start to be great.


3.    Life is difficult. Life isn’t fair. It isn’t going to be fair. Stop whining. Get up and get about making what you desire happen.


4.    Any fool can capitalize on gains. It takes wisdom to profit from loss.


5.    Fact: Everything you pursue won’t always attain. How you live with defeat and loss shows the strength of your character.


6.    There is no perfect timing, just the time that you have right now. Begin to do something every day towards fulfilling the dreams in your heart.


7.    If you want to win in life:

·        You can’t give up

·        You can’t give in

·        You have to press through

·        You have to press on


8.    To excel, do what you do well!

 
9.    Not realizing what you want is a problem of knowledge.

Not pursuing what you want is a problem of motivation.

Not achieving what you want is a problem of skills and/or persistence.
