Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

Most people I know either have or are setting goals for the new year.  I wonder how many of them will reach those goals?  How many of them will forget about them and how many will decide they just can't do what it takes to reach them.  I've been guilty of both in the past.  I have also reached my goals and there's no greater satisfaction than knowing you made it!  Today's quote reminds me of the most necessary tool we need to reach our goals...the right attitude.  What a great reminder.

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.   ~Thomas Jefferson
 

Have a marvelous Monday!

  1. Fantastic quote ! Sometimes it's nice when things fall in your lap and you didn't even know you wanted them ! We sweat over what we think we want - but something better is hiding under the covers : ).

  3. New year's resolutions always set me up for failure, but I like to give myself goals to strive for throughout the year, and when I reach them, then set new ones.

  4. Oh so true. My husband is always trying to remind me of how powerful my mental state is. I tend to get bogged down easily and let my bad attitude take over. Thank you for the reminder!

  7. Great quote. I am going to work a little harder this year to achieve my goals. I think you just need a little family support.
