Quote for the Week

"The difference between who you are today and who you'll be in five years are the people you spend time with and the books you read." - Charles Jones

Why this quote? Charles does a nice job reminding us that time continues to move forward and that we have to make conscious choices as to what we are doing and with whom. Where you end up in the future is dependent on the choices you make today. It really is that simple.

To become successful or continue to be successful in any area of your life requires focus. Success does not just happen. Luck does not just happen. Those who are constantly preparing for success, constantly preparing for the future are ready and able to take full advantage of opportunities that come along.

Preparing includes gathering more knowledge and elevating your skills and your awareness to higher and higher levels. Are the books you are reading and are the people you spend the most time with challenging you? Are they urging and pushing you to become more? Are they opening your mind and your heart in new and exciting ideas?

If not, five years from now will look almost identical to today. And who wants to keep having the same experiences over and over.
