Persistence is Self-Discipline in Thought then Action.

The Thinking Behind the Tweet

Brian Tracy said, "Persistence is self-discipline in action."

I believe desired Actions are always preceded by desired Thoughts.

In order to achieve Goals we must first discipline our Thoughts then those disciplined Thoughts will govern our Actions.

Self-discipline is an essential ingredient of success.

 

You cannot be worried, be angry, be frustrated and make money.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

You can be habitually worried, angry, and frustrated...many people prove that.

But, how many successful people have you met who make habits of worry, anger, and frustration?

***

Worry, when held in controlled quantity, can motivate.

Anger has the ability to generate action...mostly destructive, but occasionally productive.

Frustration: the worst of the three; unproductive, inactive, unhealthy.

***

If you look into a mirror and see a worried, angry, frustrated face, you are peering into the eyes of a person who will never be wealthy. 

...on the other hand, you just may find that face smiles at you, laughs, gets into a better mood, and accomplishes something constructive.


Plan for the particular and the peculiar...because that's what you are...and so is your perspective.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Particular, peculiar, distinctive, & unique: in the English language the meaning of these words overlap. Of these 4 words, we should give 'peculiar' its fair share of consideration.  While many people will struggle with defining themselves as 'peculiar', others will barely hesitate to do it...I mean, to other people...of course.

Do Unto Yourself Before You Do Unto Others

by Rick Baker
On Apr 18, 2017

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Do unto others as you would have them do to unto you

[The Golden Rule...the foundation of major religions]

***

Don't do unto others what you wouldn't want them to do unto you

[a restatement that aligns with a Spirited definition of Integrity]

***

Do Unto Yourself Before You Do Unto Others

[a restatement that adds even tougher limits...and thickens the skin]

***

He who carries the gold makes the rules

[as if that's not enough of them - another Golden Rule]

***

Constructive Criticism - make sure you can take a self-injection of that oxymoron
