Success For The Average Man - Woman Attract Good Luck

Attract Good Luck

There is the story about the fatherless child who saw a man riding by in a fancy carriage. He asked his mother who it was. "That man is a congressman," she replied.

"That's what I want to be when I grow up," the little boy said.

The next morning the mother found a note pasted on the mirror in the boys room, with the words, "I'm going to be a congressman."

The next week the boy took a job chopping wood to get books to read. At 16, he found a job driving mules to help his mother and continue his studies. At 18, he took a job sweeping the academy floors to pay his tuition. For the next 3 years he worked as a carpenter. Then he taught school for $12.00 a week. Two years later, he graduated with honors from Williams College with a law degree. At 26 he was a state senator and at 33 he was a congressman!

His mother stated that the note stayed on his mirror until he was elected to congress. Years later, he became known as James A. Garfield, president of the the United States.

What made him president was that at age 10 he was serious enough to write his dream down on paper and look at it every day.

The starting point of all success is a thought. Write down yours.

Here are some wisdom thoughts of the ages to help you. Create or find your own.

Successful men think. They think up more opportunities than they find.

Nothing is more precious than time, nor less valued. It is your richest treasure. Invest it profitably.

A written down goal, in some ways no one understands, tends to attract every ingredient it needs to realize it.

Risk is essential to life. It's total absence is Death.

Most failures are caused by not realizing the power of momentum, getting started.

You're not fully mature unless you're prepared for the unexpected.

Our greatest need is to teach people how to think, not what.

Rather be tired than bored.

What can't be cured must be endured. Time and patience will make them easy.

The great composer doesn't work because he's inspired. He's inspired because he works.

The pen is mightier than the sword.

The quality of life depends upon your goals.

What we think about most is weaving itself into the fabric of our subconscious mind, increasing it's power to attract what we desire most.

One over looked success technique is doing things in the order of importance.

Your discipline today will govern your tomorrow.

If you have a dream, you have everything that matters. If you have no dream, it's later than you think. Better get one.

Luck and skill are closely related.

Never regret growing old: not every one has the privilege.

The only way to kill time is to work it to death.

Acting rich, keeps people poor.

The most practical of all educations is that which trains us to do what we should do, when it should be done, weather we feel like it or not.

Change your thoughts and you change your life.

Repeat and re-read. Repeat and re-read.
