High wages and the capacity to assume responsibility are two things that belong together.

Posted by Yorks Living

It’s been said that a leader’s job is to inspire others to high levels of achievement, while a manager’s job is to protect the assets of investors. The most successful people are those who recognize the similarities and differences between leadership and management responsibilities, fulfilling both with equal skill and aplomb. When they do, they realize the rewards that are commensurate with their efforts. When you cheerfully accept responsibility for your own actions and do your job in a way that protects the interests of your employer, you will soon be entrusted with more and more responsibilities. And those who have the capacity to assume responsibility — for the success of the project or organization — will always be paid the highest salaries.

The greatest of all success rules is this: do unto others as you would if you were the others.

Posted by Yorks Living

The Golden Rule is more than a principle of ethical behavior; it is a dynamic force that can work good in the lives of untold numbers of people. When you make it a practice to treat others as though you were the others, you spread goodwill among people who, in turn, may be moved to do the same. By their actions, they influence still more people, who generate goodwill among even more people. This force for goodwill increases exponentially and will return to you from totally new sources. The benefit you receive from a good deed performed today by a total stranger may have been a chain reaction from long ago when you observed the Golden Rule in your own dealings with another.

The imagination is the workshop of the soul, where are shaped all the plans for individual achievement.

Posted by Yorks Living

Before you can build anything worthwhile, you must first create it in your mind. Your mind is not constrained by physical limitations or boundaries. In the workshop of your mind, you can visualize things that have never been. It is said that Albert Einstein visualized how the universe might look if he were riding astride a beam of light through infinity. Then he worked out the mathematics to support his theory of relativity. You can use the power of your imagination to visualize solutions to difficult problems, to develop new ideas, and to see yourself achieving the goals you have set for yourself.

When the going is hardest, just keep on keeping on, and you’ll get there sooner than someone who finds the going easy.

Posted by Yorks Living

If you think achieving great heights of success will be easy, you either don’t understand at all how the process works or you have your sights set too low. Reaching the top of any field is difficult, time-consuming, and often tedious. The reason it isn’t crowded at the top is that most people won’t do the things that are necessary to achieve success. They are all too willing to give up when the going gets tough. If you need inspiration to persevere, read the biographies of men and women who have achieved greatness in their lives. You will find that they prevailed because they refused to quit. They continued to toil alone long after the masses had given up and gone home.

If you are a shepherd, be the best and you may live to own the flock.

Posted by Yorks Living

One of the most wonderful things about life is that we are all unique with different levels of intelligence, interests, aptitudes, and desires. How dreadfully dull it would be if we all wanted to be nuclear physicists — or bakers. But, regardless of the gifts we may have received at birth and whichever skills we may have since developed, we all have the capability to be the best at what we do. Being the best is strictly a reflection of your attitude and your desire. Whether you are a salesperson, an executive, a secretary, or an assembly-line worker, you have the capacity to be as good as you choose to be. When you become outstanding at what you do, you will discover greatly increased demand for your services. When you become the best in your line of work, you may be asked so often to help other “sheep” that you will soon own your own “flock.”

Dependability is the first foundation stone of good character.

Posted by Yorks Living

People of character do what they say they will do, when they say they will do it, and according to agreed-upon conditions. They are the leaders, the individuals to whom others turn for guidance, because they have demonstrated that they care, that they can be trusted. If you respect yourself enough to keep commitments even when it’s inconvenient to do so, others will come to respect you too. Dependability, like any other character trait, is a habit. Begin today to develop the dependability habit. If you procrastinate or find it difficult to meet your commitments, start small. Promise yourself that you will be on time, for example, and manage your time so that you are. Soon you will find that it’s easier to keep other commitments as well. 

Living without a definite major purpose promises nothing but a scant living.

Posted by Yorks Living

You may get by in life without a Definite Major Purpose, but you will never get ahead. Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement. Financial goals in particular should be specific, definite, and measurable. You should know what you plan to earn, by when, and how you plan to do so. The greatest advantage of financial security is the peace of mind that comes from knowing that, whatever challenges life brings, you are equipped to deal with them. You will be better at whatever you choose to do because you can focus on opportunities instead of struggling to eke out a living. 

The mind serves best which is used most.

Posted by Yorks Living

Do you have a continuous improvement program for your most valuable asset-your mind? Make sure that you spend at least a half hour each day studying, thinking, and planning. Review your long-, intermediate-, and short-term goals, and measure your progress to date. Are you on schedule for their completion? Ask yourself, “What information do I not have that would help me achieve my goals?” Then gather the information you need and get into action. 

Don’t ever admit that the world has not given you an opportunity.

Posted by Yorks Living

Opportunities are never just handed to you; they must be created. Opportunities abound for every individual in every walk of life. They may not be the opportunities that you prefer, but each opportunity of which you take advantage leads to bigger and better opportunities. Physical and mental handicaps may mean that you have to explore territories unknown to others, but they also mean you have opportunities those others will never find. Think of Stephen Hawking’s brilliant research on the nature of the universe despite the fact that a crippling disease makes writing and speaking, as we know it, impossible for him. Those who approach their jobs and careers with enthusiasm always find plenty of opportunities, while those who complain about no one ever giving them a chance are merely observers of life. When you are determined that you will not allow others to determine your future for you, when you refuse to allow temporary setbacks to defeat you, you are destined for great success. The opportunities will always be there for you. If there are adversities that you cannot overcome right now, remember to capitalize upon them at a later date by looking for the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit. 

A friend is one who knows all about you and still respects you.

Posted by Yorks Living

A true friend is a priceless gift. When we reveal our hopes, our dreams, and our deepest secrets to others, and they still like and respect us, such people are to be cherished. All too often, the only reason others wish to spend time with us — to be our friends — is because of what they perceive we can do for them, not the other way around. A real friendship is reciprocal, one in which each friend benefits equally. You can earn the friendship of others by being the kind of person who deserves respect from friends. When others look up to you, it should make you even more conscious of the responsibility you have to treat them with the same respect you would like them to afford you. 

Character is accurately reflected in one’s mental attitude.

Posted by Yorks Living

Without a strong foundation built on positive character traits, success will not long endure. It is virtually impossible to fake good character. Phonies are quickly spotted because they haven’t the substance and determination to maintain the charade. Developing good character begins with a positive attitude. Your desire to be a good, decent, honest, considerate person must first take place in your mind. When you make the decision to become a person of character, you will also find that you are much more willing to do the right thing simply because it is the right thing to do. 

A rudderless ship and a purposeless person are eventually stranded on desert sand.

Posted by Yorks Living

The goals you set for yourself — like the rudder of a ship — will guide you toward your destination, and without them, like a ship without a rudder, you’ll find it impossible to stay the course. Make goal-setting a habit in your life. If you sometimes have trouble staying focused, set small, attainable goals and stick with the job until it’s done. Examples might include finding a faster, more efficient way to do a routine job. Or taking the most difficult jobs first when you have the most energy and your concentration is at its highest level. Save the easiest jobs for last. A few small successes will inevitably lead to bigger achievements. 

The world stands aside and makes room for the person who knows where he is going and is on his way.

Posted by Yorks Living

When you have a vision for what you wish to achieve in your life, not only will others stand aside and let you pass, but they will join you in your quest as well. They will instinctively recognize your enthusiasm and zest for living. When you speak of your passion in life, your definite major goal, they will see the intensity of your desire, and they will respond with encouragement and assistance or they will stand aside. It will be apparent to all who know you that you will succeed. 

Followers

Most great leaders began in the capacity of followers. They became great leaders because they were intelligent followers. 

Self-pity is an opiate.

Posted by Yorks Living

The most insidious problem with drugs is that the human body develops a tolerance for them and requires larger and larger doses to achieve the same effect. The same is true with self-pity. The more you allow yourself to indulge in it, the more you will require. Soon, self-pity will become a habit, one so debilitating that you will rob yourself of all the potential you possess. Happily, there is a cure. If you truly analyze the situation, most often you will find that the problems that have driven you to pity yourself are mostly of your own creation. It follows, then, that the best person to remedy the problem is the person who created it: you, yourself.

How can you judge others accurately if you have not learned to judge yourself accurately?

Posted by Yorks Living

The ability to evaluate yourself and your performance objectively is critical to your relationships with others and will have an enormous impact upon the level of success you achieve during your lifetime. Unless you can honestly evaluate your strengths and weaknesses, how can you ever expect to improve your performance? You must determine where you are before you can develop a plan to get you where you would like to be. If you were an independent, dispassionate observer, what advice would you give to yourself to improve your skills, your work habits, your interaction with others, and your contribution to the organization? Honesty about yourself is the first step toward self-improvement.

No one can keep you down but yourself.

Posted by Yorks Living

Have you ever felt that sometimes you are your own worst enemy? We all have moments when, no matter how hard we try, things just don’t seem to work out right, when everything goes wrong, and we have no one to blame but ourselves. But, just as you may sometimes be your own worst enemy, you can also be your own best friend. The transition usually occurs when you realize that the only person on earth who can determine your failure or success is you yourself. You may discover your best friend when you develop the maturity and strength of character to accept yourself for the person you are and to take the actions necessary to become the person you wish to be. When you analyze yourself objectively, you can begin to build upon your strengths and compensate for your weaknesses. When you do, you will realize that the only person who stands in the way of your success is you.

Your true age is determined by your mental attitude, not the years you have lived.

Posted by Yorks Living

The American clergyman and author Tyrone Edwards said, “Age does not depend upon years, but upon temperament and health. Some men are born old, and some never grow so.” No doubt you’ve known teenagers who were old before their time and seventy-year-olds who had the temperament and enthusiasm of those discovering the wonders of life for the very first time. It is all a matter of attitude. As you grow and develop, make sure your experience is directed toward the acquisition of wisdom, not the acceptance of cynicism. If you find it difficult to keep an open mind because of previous experiences, remind yourself that you’re dealing with different people, that conditions have changed, or that because you are older and wiser, your chances of success are greater than in the past.

Are you waiting for success

Are you waiting for success or are you going out to find it?


If you are waiting for success to seek you out, you are headed for a big disappointment. Success is rarely forced upon anyone, and it will never overtake you unexpectedly. You must prepare for it and actively seek it out if you ever plan to achieve any measure of success in your life. Constantly be alert to changes in your business or profession. Subscribe to trade magazines and professional journals, join industry associations or professional societies, and get to know the experts in the field in order to keep abreast of new developments. 

If you want friends, be a friend

If you call on your friends only when you need something, you will soon find yourself without friends.


There is a great deal of wisdom in the old saw, “If you want friends, be a friend.” Friendship means giving without expecting anything in return. Busy, successful people are not searching for new friends. If you want to be their friend, you must make the effort to befriend them. Let them know that you are interested in them as people, not in what they can do for you, and you may find that you have made a true and loyal friend. 

Wise persons are those who think twice before speaking once.

Perhaps the greatest quality in a leader and the most valuable skill in building relationships is the ability to think before you speak. If you have a tendency to speak hastily in anger and regret your actions at leisure, the childhood admonition to count to ten before speaking will still serve you well. When you pause — if only for a moment — to consider the consequences, you may think better of what you were about to say. And if you must speak strongly, it’s a good idea to sugarcoat the words — just in case you have to eat them later.

10 thoughts for Today..........

Posted by Yorks Living


1. Just for Today, I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle my whole life-problem at once. I can do some things for twelve hours that would appall me if I felt I had to keep them up for a lifetime.
2. Just for Today, I will be Happy. This assumes that what Abraham Lincoln said is true, that “most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Happiness is from Within; it is not a matter of Externals.
3. Just for Today, I will Adjust myself to what Is, and not try to Adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my family, my business, and my luck as they come, and fit myself to them.
4. Just for Today, I will take care of my Body. I will exercise it, care for it, and nourish it, and not abuse it nor neglect it; so that it will be a perfect machine for my will.
5. Just for Today, I will try to strengthen my mind, I will study. I will learn something useful, I will not be a mental loafer all day. I will read something that requires effort, though and concentration.
6. Just for Today, I will exercise my Soul. In three ways, to wit:
(a) I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out. If anybody knows of it, it will not count.
(b) I will do at least two things I don’t want to do, as William James suggests just for exercise.
(c) I will not show any one that my feelings are hurt. They may be hurt, but Today I will not show it.
7. Just for To-day, I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress as becomingly as possible, talk low, act courteously, be liberal with flattery, criticize not one bit nor find fault with anything, and not try to regulate nor improve anybody.
8. Just for Today, I will have a Programme. I will write down just what I expect to do every hour. I may not follow it exactly, but I’ll have it. It will save me from the two pests Hurry and Indecision.
9. Just for Today, I will have a quiet half hour, all by myself, and relax. During this half hour, some time, I will think of God, so as to get a little more perspective to my life.
10. Just for Today, I will be Unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to be Happy, to enjoy what is Beautiful, to love and to believe that those I love love me.

Your Unused Riches by Napoleon Hill

Posted by Yorks Living



“Do the thing,” said Emerson, “and you shall have the power.”
Your greatest asset is one which you may not have properly evaluated.
It is the one asset with which you may lift yourself into whatever position or circumstance you desire, and it is one you can never lose through the perfidy of others, nor can it be taken from you or stolen.
It is appropriately called your “greatest asset” because it is the one thing over which you have complete, unchallengeable power of control, and it must have been so regarded by your Creator because it is the only thing over which you were given the exclusive usage.
Your greatest asset is your privilege of taking possession of your own mind and directing it to the attainment of purposes of your own choice.
This exclusive privilege carries with it profound riches as a reward for your using it wisely, and unmerciful penalties for your failure to embrace and use it wisely.
Among the riches with which you will be regarded for controlling and directing your own mind are financial security–sound health–peace of mind–the affection of friends and loved ones–and a station in life of your own choice.
Among the penalties, you may have to pay for failure to take possession of your own mind are poverty–ill health–fear and worry–loss of friends–and unanswered prayers.
Your mind was given to you to be used for all your needs in the business of negotiating your way through life in a style of your own choice. Like any organ or muscle of your body, the brain in which your mind functions will atrophy and wither away through disuse.
The highest and the noblest use you can make of your mind is by the development of a sixth sense through which you may communicate with the source of all wisdom when you pray.
And the more you depend upon prayer for guidance in all of your acts, the stronger will your mindpower become, until there will come a time when you may communicate with Infinite Intelligence instantaneously at will.
The late Charles P. Steinmetz once expressed the belief that the time would come when the act of prayer would be as scientific and as definite as the rules of mathematics or the laws of physics. Other great thinkers have expressed a similar belief.

TRUE WEALTH

Posted by Yorks Living

TRUE WEALTH CONSISTS of ideas, not money. Money is only the material medium that is exchanged for ideas. Paper money in itself—yen, euros, or another currency—is worth nothing; it is the ideas behind it that give it value.
The whole point is that you should not go outside to seek wealth. Wealth lies within you. Use your mind to think in a constructive manner.
Thinking does not mean idly wasting time. You need to think with a purpose in mind and an end in view: trying to solve a problem. In The Master Mind, Theron Q. Dumont says that thinking is forced upon us when we are deciding on a course to pursue, perhaps a life’s work to take up. This is the kind of thinking that was forced upon us in our younger days when we had to find the solution to a problem in mathematics, or when we tackled psychology in college.
When I talk about thinking, I do not mean holding petty opinions on a particular subject. I mean thinking about significant questions that lie outside the bounds of your narrow personal welfare. This is the kind of thinking that is now so rare—and so badly needed!
To seek to discover new worlds or new methods, you must do more than merely ponder. You must think in a constructive manner. The greatest discoveries have arisen out of things that everybody had seen, but only one person truly noticed. The biggest fortunes have been made from the opportunities that many people had, but that only one person took hold of.
Do you realize that the reality of poverty exists because the fear of poverty is visualized and thus brought into being? The lesson that the many millions of people who are in poverty have not yet learned is the law of supply.
The law of supply is that you must think abundance, see abundance, feel abundance, and believe abundance. No thought of limitations should enter your mind. It is not possible to desire anything of which, as far as the mind is concerned, there is not an abundant supply. If you can visualize it in your mind, you can realize it in your life.
The seeds of both prosperity and success need to be nourished with intense desire. Keep in your mind’s eye the picture of the thing you want. You must realize that you think in pictures. Believe in your mind’s eye, forget your fears, and realize that your future will be the one you make for yourself. There is nothing that can deter you if you set your goal, forget difficulties, and always keep the goal in your mind’s eye. It is no mere boast that our mental condition enables us to make our lives what we will. The only limitations are those that we set on ourselves.
