Good Endings require a Start!

An ancient proverb says, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

Journey of thousand miles starts with single stepWe all know people nearing the end of their life’s journey who looked back and said, “If only I had done things differently…. If only I had taken advantage of that opportunity when it came along.”

Unfulfilled lives are filled with “if onlys.” They are the refrain of the timid souls whose lives were finished before they ever really got started. Life is filled with many opportunities — for great successes and spectacular failures. It is up to you to seize the initiative, to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way. You are condemned to a life of mediocrity — unless you get into action. Don’t delay; do it today!

If you appreciate the kindness shown you by others, say it with actions as well as words.

The people who enjoy the greatest financial and personal success in life are those who build lasting relationships — with business associates, friends, co-workers, and others. They take the time and trouble to stay in touch, and they make sure that when someone does a good deed for them, they respond in kind.

Build your network of personal and professional friends by taking the initiative and being a friend.

It’s a sure thing that you’ll not finish if you don’t start.
