    How to Manufacture the Key to Success

    How to Manufacture the Key to Success

    *Motivational Podcast Excerpt* : A great sculptor noticed a stone that had been rejected and thrown aside by the builders. In the stone he saw a beautiful angel. He chiseled the stone away and revealed the angel to the world. I want, if I can, to get you to look into the future and see yourself as a beautiful, successful character, and after getting the vision, reveal that character to the world.

    Only through the hard gates where struggle gives her challenge and adversity demands her toll, is there an entrance to the valleys of achievement and the kingdoms of delight. Be true to yourself, be true to your friends, be true to the world. Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success, and that a whole clear glorious life lies before you.

    Get an exact and definite mental picture of the ultimate end and aim of your life. Select the particular position you propose to reach. Picture yourself also as surrounded by all the good things that naturally go with the position selected. Be very definite about this, and do not be too modest. Let it be something well worth years of patient struggle to attain. Decide definitely that you will attain it, no matter what the effort or time required. Then hold to that vision. Keep it always before you like a distant beacon of light. Have a steady hand at the wheel. Strive for it persistently and continuously. And when the seas are foggy, have faith that it is there to be reached, even though you cannot for the moment see it.

    *Motivational Podcast Excerpt* : Put the joy of creation into everything you do. Let it be worthy of your mind, and let it be done as perfectly as you can do it. If your employers cannot use you to better advantage, fit yourself for more congenial work elsewhere. It is your own fault if you complain: the remedy is always in your own hands. Complaints are signs of weakness, and if you are in a chronic state of dissatisfaction, words will avail nothing. Only by your own actions can you alter your own condition of life. If you are busy complaining when you ought to be busily acting, you are likely to complain until the end of the chapter.

    How can you enjoy your leisure, if your mind is brooding over your grievances? Instead of railing against circumstances, you should take yourself to task because you allow your environment to worry you, and because you are not forming some plan which will eventually improve your state of mind, as well as your state of work.

    *Inspirational Podcast Excerpt* : Be sure that whatever troubles come to you, if you face them with courage, they will pass by as the idle wind, and leave behind the prosperity of which they are only the harbingers. Everyone who has faced sorrow and disaster, who has come through the fires of adversity, knows well from their own experience that for every trouble life can bring, there is some greater compensating advantage.

    It is true that “All things work together for good.” The snows of winter serve to warm the earth and protect the seeds that bring forth the glorious blooms of summer. All through Nature and all through life we see that the things which are gloomy and unpleasant inevitably develop into brightness and happiness.

    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: In every age, we hear much talk of heroes. We are fascinated by stories and tales that spur the imagination to the loftiest heroism. But I would call your attention to the greatest of all heroism: that heroism which does not receive the plaudits of the crowd, nor attract the eyes of the multitude. It is not richly rewarded with treasure, and does not have medals struck for its accomplishments.
    I am thinking of the rescues and battles, the sacrifices and generosities, and the invincible courage which are unheralded, unrecorded, and unrewarded, but upon which the security and prosperity of our times depend.
    Many a person in a moment of emergency would rush at the risk of their life to the rescue of an imperiled friend; but that same person may not possess the stalwart heroism necessary to withstand certain temptations which are ruining their life and bringing agony to those who love them.

    Overcoming Hurry, Worry, and Irritability | Motivation

    Visit today's sponsor at ReelPaper.com, and use the coupon code LIVING for 25% off your purchase.
    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Remember that worrying is resistance, and resistance is unwillingness. Unwillingness interferes with whatever we may want to accomplish. To be willing that this, that, or the other thing should happen seems quite difficult, when to our minds, this, that, or the other thing may bring disaster. And yet if we can once see clearly that worrying resistance tends toward disaster rather than away from it, or, at the very least, takes away our strength and endurance, it is only a matter of time before we become able to drop our resistance altogether.
    However, it IS a matter of time, and not instantaneous. So, once we are faced toward freedom from worry, we must be patient and steady, and not expect to gain very rapidly. We must be persistent, and resist the temptation to do nothing to overcome our worries.
    I remember a woman who once said to me, "Now I have got something to worry about for the rest of my life.” Her face was set toward worrying. Nothing but her own will could have turned it the other way, and yet she deliberately chose not to use it, and so she was fixed and settled in her self-made prison for the rest of her life.

    Inspiring Thoughts for Self-Development & Self-Growth

    Visit today's sponsor Swanson Health at Swanson.com. And use coupon code INSPO20 for 20% off.
    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: The ushering in of a New Year brings with it to so many people New Year’s Resolutions. This is a splendid practice and I would not discount New Year Resolutions one iota, but instead give unto them strength. Indeed, I wish to encourage not only resolutions for the New Year, but to urge everyone to be on the alert, taking stock, visualizing, and planning to better not only ourselves, but our neighbors and that sphere of the world which we touch. And whenever a new thought for a better practice in the upbuilding of our lives crosses our minds, do not wait for the New Year to roll around to record it and start practicing it, but begin at once.
    If the word resolution sounds "too tame," the words maxim or motto may be used. When carried to the final analysis it is “habit” that we are seeking, because after all, life consists of a bunch of habits. If everybody, especially young people, during the formative period of their lives, would give ten minutes to serious thought and write down on paper at least one resolution, maxim, or motto every week, which you intend to practice and actually incorporate into your life, we would see an astounding change for the better in the individual, which means, also, a rising generation.
