Quote for the Week

Work harder on yourself than on your job. – Jim Rohn

Why this quote? It's simply, powerful and to the point.

Yes, I know you work hard - long days, long hours and lots of effort. You come home and feel like putting your feet up and just relaxing a bit; maybe watching some TV to unwind. But here is where the trouble can happen – you sit down at 7:00 or 8:00 PM and next thing you know it’s 10:30 or 11:00 PM and you have not really done anything but sit (and perhaps snack).

How can you expect your life to change?  How can you expect to increase your knowledge, skills or abilities by sitting on your backside? Plain and simple – You Can’t.

You get out of life what you put into it. If you want to be more than you have to do more. You have to plan out time for learning new skills, accessing new information and putting both of these into action.

It’s not about taking away from your action at work, it’s all about increasing your action and focus when away from work.

If you simply want a paycheck keep on putting the most effort into your job BUT if you want a rich, full and truly successful life than start putting the most effort into yourself. You will be amazed at just what you can accomplish with focus, determination, commitment and follow through.
