Stephen Covey said “Unless you're continually improving your skills, you're quickly becoming irrelevant.” I agree! I remember talking to a guy who said his business was “going with the flow”. I reminded him that the flow is ALWAYS going downhill! Be careful not to fall into that trap. Doing what everyone else is doing it BECAUSE they're doing it. If it's the right thing for you... do it... but don't make YOUR plans based on what others are doing. They're not you... you're not them. Be yourself and do what YOU need to do to be more successful! Sometimes that means you're putting in extra work.... but it is worth it!

Albert Einstein said “Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.” What a smart dude! (he he... see what I did there... it's Albert Einstein!) I think you will become a success by being a person of value! If people around you see you as a person who can help them grow... you will always have something to do! If the people around you see you as someone who wants to TAKE their time... TAKE their money... TAKE their attention off what they need to do to be successful. You're probably not going to do well. Be a person who adds value and you'll always have opportunities!

Earl Nightingale said "Success is a matter of sticking to a set of common sense principles anyone can master." I like that! Super simple if GOOD! I've worked with people who have found a way to suck all the fun out of what they do each day buy over analyzing every little thing to the point where every second of every day is scheduled. They have meetings to set up meetings and reports about reports. How do I know? I used to live in that world. I did that for one year. It would have been less, but I committed to do it for a year... so I turned in my notice on my 364th day. I learned some things that year, but It would be hard to get me to go back!

Dale Carnegie said "You'll never achieve real success unless you like what you're doing." I agree so much! If you don't love what you do... you can't be truly successful! I've had the chance to try a few different things in my life and I can tell you that it's better to love what you do and make a little less money... than make a bunch of money doing something you hate. I would choose the thing I love every single time... over making more money doing something I don't like! How about you? Think that over a bit! Maybe this could be the moment that motivates YOU to find your calling in life!

Fred Gwyn (as Herman Munster) said “The lesson I want you to learn, is that it doesn’t matter what you look like. You could be tall or short, or fat or thin, or ugly — or handsome, like your father — or you can be black or yellow or white, it doesn’t matter. But what does matter is the size of your heart and the strength of your character.” I absolutely love that! You'd never guess that a giant MONSTER from TV could have such an amazing quote, but there it is. I don't have much to add... Herman, or Fred Gwyn... got it 100% right! Be nice to people... no matter what they look like!!
