A Dose Of Motivation For Authors




Every so often I enjoy a good dose of motivational and inspirational insights.  Over the years many books that are filled with such tips come to resemble each other.  A lot of these books are rooted in the teachings of Dale Carnegie but they get their spin on timeless wisdom.  I recently enjoyed such a book, Rule #1 Don’t Be #2: You Get What You Work For, Not What You Wish For by Daniel Milstein.

Here are some sample quips:

“Success is never owned.  It is rented and the rent is due every day!”

“You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

“I don’t stop when I am tired, I stop when I am done.”

“Whatever you’re thinking, think bigger.”

“Today I will do what others won’t do so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.”

“Focus on your future, live in the present, and learn from your past.”

“You’ll have a much greater chance for long-term success by constantly focusing directly on what you want in life.”

“One year from now, you’ll wish you had started today.”

“Some people want their dreams to happen, some wish they would happen, and others make them happen.”

“If you don’t sacrifice for what you want, what you want will become the sacrifice.”

“Don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid to not try.”

“It’s never too late to become what you might have been.”

“Winners are not the people who never fail; they are the people who never quit.”

“You are not a product of your circumstances.  You are a product of your decisions.”

“You must know what your priorities are. Priorities are more than a daily or weekly “to do” list; rather, they refer to those things that are most important to us professionally and personally. They guide us as we establish a set of goals and develop a framework with which to accomplish them. And as we remain focused on our priorities, they also help us continue to make necessary adjustments in order to reach our goals.
