Attitudes to Accomplish Your Goals
Compiled by Rev. Patrice Joy Masterson, MA
The people that make it in this world look around for the circumstance they want, and if they don’t find it, they create it.
Most of one’s sense of struggle and anxiety stems from an overactive mind.
If you take your goals too seriously, you will forget to have fun along the way.
It is may be necessary to take rejection and avoid being discouraged by a “No.”
Rise above the discouraging opinions of others. The best way to counter negativity is to succeed.
Rather than thinking you had a bad day accept, “I had a character building day today.”
Surround yourself with people who believe in you.
Have patient and consistent forward motion. Respond to life with more ease.
Find ways to serve people. Do something for someone and don’t tell anyone.
You have to be personally responsible for your dream. No one will ever care more about your dream than you do.
Replace old habits of reaction with new habits of perspective.
Live softer, more gracefully and life is more compatible.
Make peace with imperfection. Desire tranquility.
Focus on solutions, rather than on problems.
Focus on the pastime of gratitude.
Notice what is happening in your head before your thoughts build momentum.
The purpose of life is not to get it all done, but to enjoy it along the way and to live a life filled with love. Compassion is a heartfelt emotion that delivers kindness to everyone we meet.
Listen! Listen! Listen! You have two ears and one mouth; talk half as much as you listen. Don’t make others feel they are competing with you for “airtime” in a conversation.
Allow yourself downtime. We have become “human doings” instead of “human beings”.
The beauty of doing nothing allows you to clear your mind and relax in the flow of creativity.
