Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

In an earilier post, I wrote about my lack of focus, organization and self-discipline.  I believe self-discipline is  the key to any endeavor we undertake if it is to be successful.  We can have all the desire in the world to achieve our goals, but without the discipline to carry out the steps to reaching each goal, we will be unsuccessful.  For many, the lack of success leads to failure and failure leads to giving up. 

Today's words of wisdom are for me, but I hope you will be inspired and motivated by them also
"The individual who wants to reach the top in business must appreciate the might and force of habit. He must be quick to break those habits that can break him—and hasten to adopt those practices that will become the habits that help him achieve the success he desires."         ~ J. Paul Getty

"Success is a matter of understanding and religiously practicing specific, simple habits that always lead to success."   ~Robert J. Ringer

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  2. The J Paul Getty quote is so true. When I let myself fall into a habit of working in my studio on a routine basis, I get so much more accomplished. I am in that mode right now while I prepare for a big home show in NY. Thanks for stopping by my blog ;-)
