Don't Just Stand There!
by Michael Lee
Many people think that they have to accept whatever life throws at them.
They'll say, "This is my fate, my destiny. I cannot change it."
Of course not!
You don't have to suffer needlessly. Your destiny depends on you, not on
any other external factors.
I know someone who says she just accepts what life gives her because she
has done everything she can to improve it.
Guess what her lifestyle is?
She wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes back home, relaxes,
chats with people, watches TV, then goes to sleep. Next day, the same
routinary cycle ensues.
Huh?!? Is this what she calls "doing her best?"
She believes she has tried her best and just accepts it in her heart
that this is the life that God has intended for her to live; that her

something goes wrong, don't just regard it as a temporary setback; but
use it as feedback. Learn your lesson, make the most of the situation,
and do something to resolve the problem.
It's not enough to think positive; you also have to act positive.
If someone's life is in trouble, do you just hope and pray that things
will turn out fine? Of course not! You got to do anything you can to
save the person.
So it is with your own life. It is not enough to hope for the best, but
you have to DO your best. In other words..
Don't just stand (or sit) there, do something to improve your life!
I can remember a period in my life when I was unemployed and money was

What counts ....
Base your judgment of yourself not on your results
but on the effort you gave.
Visualize, and Get It
Your mind is your mental workshop.
You can build anything you want in it.
The beginning of your success is in your imagination.
What can I do to
SUCCESS, beginning now, is entirely on what you do beginning TODAY!
Successful people have a future orientation. They are also action
oriented not excuse oriented.
Many people never fully utilize their natural gifts because they don't
find the proper way to express them in the world, or perhaps they don't
even recognize the talents they have.
A Positive Mindset is the Foundation for Success
Donít limit your thinking, as this will limit your beliefs and these will limit your actions, which will limit your successes! Success starts in our minds and the sooner we understand this, the better a chance we have at achieving it.
