When a combination of skills, goals, & plans is not present, people give up their dreams & hope.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Skills, goals and plans will always be required. 

Without these basics, work is demoralizing and frustrating.

Without these basics, unless they have tremendous will, people give up their dreams and hope.

The more you use your talents the harder it is to wear them out.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We struggle when we don't use our Talents...and many of us accept that struggling lot in life.

Yet, few of us struggle to use up our Talents.

Isn't that unfortunate!

Hope is not a strategy but it is an essential ingredient of leadership.

'Hope is not a Strategy', an interesting business book by Rick Page.

"Hope is an essential ingredient of leadership." a Deepak Chopra quote from his book, 'The Soul of Leadership'

Both are accurate statements.

Dreams of a better future generate a better future.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Past and future are dreams; now is a reality. All things are now; all power, all possibility, all action, is now."

British author/philosopher James Allen said that in 1903. It seems to me Allen's advice is a key to what most people refer to as 'time management'. I mean, if people pay more attention to the present and less attention to agonizing over the past and worrying about the future then they will feel less stressed...and they will feel like they have more time.

On the other hand, we should not be too harsh on dreams - only dreams of a better future generate that future. As 2 examples, Marconi proved this...so did Martin Luther King Jr.

When troubles consume your thoughts, remember "Your tooth will cease aching if your house is afire..."

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Your tooth will cease aching if your house is afire..." Frank Channing Haddock made that point in his 1910 classic, 'Power of Will'. 

Long before the medical sciences confirmed the concepts of neuroplasticity, people knew the awesome power & virtually unlimited possibilities available to the human mind. 

If emergencies can remove the pain of toothaches then properly trained minds can do the same thing.

Our minds have the ability to remove the 'negative feelings and thoughts' we encounter during day-to-day life.

When we look outward and feel things are beyond our control it is most difficult to look inward and muster self-control.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Some situations seem to be beyond our control. In fact, some situations are beyond our control. Other situations just appear to be beyond our control. Regardless, really beyond our control or appearing beyond our control - these are the situations that put our self-control to the toughest test. When our locus of control is tested, so is our self-control. We do better when we anticipate these situations and prepare, in our minds, for them.
