Can You Make An Hour?

Have you come across anyone who has not felt or said, “ There is so much I want to do. So little time to do it.” If you too feel that you don’t have enough time to accomplish whatever you want to, ask yourself:

Can I make, squeeze-in an hour a day?

If you wonder what could you do with an hour a day, consider what Orison Swett Marden said in his highly inspiring book, Making Life A Masterpiece, over a hundred years ago. It holds true even today.

“ I wish it were possible to blazon on the sky, where it would burn itself into the consciousness of every youth, the marvellous results of even one hour a day spent in persistent, concentrated, earnest self-culture.

What young man is really too busy to give an hour a day to self improvement, self enlargement?

One hour a day for a short time profitably employed would enable men of ordinary capacity to master a complete science.

One hour a day in ten years would make an ignorant man a well-informed man.

In an hour a day a boy or girl could read twenty pages thoughtfully — more than seven thousand pages a year or eighteen large volumes.

An hour a day might make — nay has made — an unknown man famous, a useless man a benefactor of his race.

Think of the might possibilities of two — four — yes, even six hours a day that are often thrown away by young men and women in frivolous amusement.”

Can you make an hour a day?

 

Are You Willing To Pay The Price?

 

What do you want to achieve?
Do you believe you can achieve it?

There is a good chance that you can achieve whatever you want to achieve if – and this is a big if – you are willing to pay the price. Consider what Scot Raymond Adams, the famous American cartoonist and the creator of the Dilbert comic strip and author says in his book, How to fail at almost everything and still win big: “ If you want success figure out the price, then Pay it. I know a lot o people, who wish they were rich or famous. They wish they had yachts and servants and castles and they wish they could travel the world in their own private jets.

But these are mere wishes. Few of these wishful people have decided to have any of these things. It’s a very big difference, for once you decide: you take action. Wishing starts in the mind and generally stays there.

When you decide to be successful in a big way, it means that you acknowledge the price and and you are willing to pay it.” Like Kobe Bryant, the legendary basketball player did.

Early in his career, Kobe Bryant wanted to be an extraordinary three-point shooter. He knew he could be. He decided the price was 1300 three-pointers per day. He went out everyday during the off season and paid the price. He practiced 1300 hundred three-pointers every day during the off season. And he made a record that won him a place among the basketball greats that scored most in an NBA game.

A three-pointer is a field goal in a basketball game made from beyond the three-point line, a designated arc surrounding the basket. A successful attempt is worth three points.

As George Mumford, the mindfulness-coach who coached the basketball greats such as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant says in his highly insightful book, The Mindful Athlete, “You not only have to focus on your intention but you also have to be willing to get up early in the morning and do the same thousands and thousands of times – and then another thousand times – with intention, which leads one to deliberate practice.”

When you decide to be successful in a big way, ask your self:
What do you want to achieve?
Do you believe you can achieve it?
What price do you need to pay for it?
Are you willing to pay it?

 

 

When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking…

Do you know that you are always noticed That you are constantly being observed? Your children are watching everything you say and do. Often,They may not do what you tell them to do. But they would always do what you do. You set an example and what lousy and do has an impact. You make a difference when you walk the talk. Making a difference is a great responsibility. Love always and know that you are loved too.

Here is an amazing poem that has been making rounds on internet for quite sometime attributed to an anonymous source. The poem is actually written by Mary Rita Schilke Karzan as a tribute to her mother, Blanche Karzan.
When you thought I wasn’t looking
You hung my first painting on the
refrigerator and I wanted to paint another

When you thought I wasn’t looking
You fed a stray cat and I thought
it was good to be kind to animals

When you thought I wasn’t looking
You baked a birthday cake just for me
And I knew that little things were special things

When you thought I wasn’t looking
You said a prayer and I believed
there was a God that I could always talk to

When you thought I wasn’t looking
You kissed me good night
and I felt loved

When you thought I wasn’t looking
I saw tears come from your eyes
and I learned that somethings hurt
but that it’s all right

When you thought I wasn’t looking
You smiled
and it made me want to look that pretty too

When you thought I wasn’t looking
You cared
And I wanted to be everything I could be

When you thought I wasn’t looking
I looked
And wanted to say thanks for all those things
You did
When you thought I wasn’t looking
Thank you!
