“Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.”–Gordon B. Hinckley
The difference in winning and losing is work. What we mean by action is the daily effort put into that which you seek. Whether it is a success in business, success in marriage, success in raising children or just being your best self. No matter the endeavor it all takes work!
Deciding to do anything to produce a result requires activity that produces productivity. Never confuse the two. Activity and productivity must be in concert with each other to have any success.
Organize each day with tasks that you must complete. Do not move past a function until you finish it. The worst thing is to multi-task during a job. Laser focus on achieving a task, then move on. Giving your full attention to the task at hand will create amazing results.
Use a task management system to lay out your day’s work. Finish! That is the key to productivity is to finish the task.
If you don’t want the weeds to grow in your life. Do the work at hand, have faith that what you endeavor to do is coming to pass.

“If you have a positive attitude and constantly strive to give your best effort, eventually you will overcome your immediate problems and find you are ready for greater challenges.”–Pat Riley
What we’ve been talking about in this year on the blog has really focused our attention on the organized effort. Not letting fear overcome our positive attitude. Fighting through fear!
When we strive to these paradigms, ideas, and focus. We will overcome and handle more significant challenges as they come.
Every day, put your best foot forward. Steps forward create momentum this momentum will increase strength and the size of your actions. Cancel negative thoughts as they come. Somedays those negative thoughts can come in a barrage. Just let the enemy know he can throw the kitchen sink at you. God has you!
Just know in your heart that no matter how much you struggle to find any reason to be definite, sometimes just surrender to God. Tell him that he knows your heart today is a struggle, and you’re not giving up.
When you learn to maintain a positive attitude in the face of adversity. Incredible changes, blessing, and hope will reveal themselves to you. Stay strong!

“Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.”–Joyce Meyer
Letting God do his work takes time. Patience allows God to see your faith, that you trust enough to allow your life’s destiny to open up as it should. When you lose hope because times get tough slows the progress.
We all struggle with patience because we want everything right now. Living in a world that wants us to believe now, now, now!
The struggle is we don’t see an outcome being positive quickly enough then our first instinct is to jump in the middle of something that needs time. Yes, you have to do the work, what’s necessary to move things along.
There is a difference in taking steps to realize a change, or forcing something that is not altogether ready to manifest. For example, a relationship you push too hard when you push someone away because you don’t give them the time and space to come to the same place you are.
Worse still is you merely give up. “Oh this is not going to work, or it would have by now.” The Universe will align the sun, the moon and the stars in your favor with Patience. Remember you cannot say I want a new job and then order a pizza and wait. You have to get out and do the work, look for a job, interview and keep chugging until you here “Welcome we want to hire you.”
Comments & Questions:
“Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes.”
This quote has been attributed to Sigmund Freud, William Gibson and a host of others. I found it both straight to the point and funny. Whoever can take credit for it!
We all learn to keep certain people at arm’s length, or we allow them into our experience. Taking care to protect our emotions.
Learn to not allow toxic people to steal your joy. If needed these folks may need to exit your life if you deal with issues concerning them. You don’t have to allow that, ever!
Sometimes we have to move on from relationships to make room for the new. Changing seasons in our life will bring new friends, mentors and essential people that God sees fit to move into our life experience. Be open!
Embrace those that lift you up, challenge your status quo. Lots of people are searching for the same quality of life you are. I find great people at Church that follow a path of happiness.
Find people that bring joy to your life. Don’t let anyone steal your happiness!

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”–Winston Churchill
Everyone chases success most of their adult life. Certainly, I have. This is a double edge sword. On the one hand, of course, we want to achieve success. On the other, we can sacrifice a life to achieve success. Balance do you have it?
Learn to be present in the moment in every aspect of your life!
When chasing dreams be sure that you balance work life and home life. Especially, when children are involved. I can tell you firsthand that kids want your attention and deserve it. Don’t sacrifice! Balance can be done, you just have to commit yourself.
You can have a successful career with life balance. Learning time management, no lollygagging during the day. Use a calendar to assign times to complete tasks. Read books on project management. Learn to prioritize.
Godspeed in your journey!
