Looking in different perspectives

Everyone will definitely continue to face trials and hardships, but what actually made the difference? The main reason that made the difference is their way of viewing hardship and bad luck. It is their perspective in life that caused the change.

"In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity." - Albert Einstein

"The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty" - Winston Churchill

"I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving that those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work." - Thomas Edison

Imagine what would happen if Thomas Edison decided to give up because he feels that he would fail miserably? What would happen? Well, we would then had been living in the dark for the past 20 century! With that, we do not need any earth hour no more.

Take the first step

Taking the first step is the simplest way to success yet the hardest to be done. Many plans how are they going to move towards success but majority of them quits because they do not take the first step

"Take the first step, and your mind will mobilize all its forces to your aid. But the first essential is that you begin. Once the battle is startled, all that is within and without you will come to your assistance.” - Robert Collier

“Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” - Martin Luther

There's no use thinking of ways to improve, to tackle problems in life or to succeed without any actions. We need to take the first step and take actions. Improvements in life needs to be initiated because it doesn't come naturally.

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." - Confucius

Are you taking the first step to reach your destination today ?
Well, if you haven't do so, do it now as there is no right time to take actions other than now.

What made the difference?

A Good Relationship made the difference.

A girl who received a book from a young man, read it and said, "What a tiresome book!"

The young man said, "Did you notice who wrote it?"

She looked at the front page and saw that her lover was the author. She began to read it again, and at the end she said, "I never read a greater book."

Well, what made the difference?

Her relationship to the writer!

"A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things." - Matthew 12:35

Usually many people would not be interested to know very much about you unless there is a need to establish a relationship or there is benefit in doing so. Somehow, there are always motives or reasons in anything we do. Well, you better choose carefully and wisely, those you want to be with!

"Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same." - Flavia Weedn
