Chapter 3, Page 25, Book 21

 You have three choices in life - give up, give in or give it all you got.

Zig Ziglar

March 25TH -life is filled with choices.

In truth, whatever is worth doing at all, is worth doing well;
and nothing can be done well without attention.

Phillip Dormer Stanhope

We are the only ones that can decide what choice to make. No one is responsible for what we do, but ourselves.  No one can make you do what you don’t want to do.

I choose to give it my all in anything I do.  If it’s worth doing then it’s worth doing well.  

If you decide you are going to do something, then you have to do it all and to the best of your ability, which means paying attention to the details and knowing who to do it with.  Not ever thing can be done by ourselves so we need to pay attention to who we have along side us too.

When you pay attention we put our focus on the present moment, on what’s going on right then and there.  It’s the difference in whether or not you will do a good job.

Life is not a straight line.  It’s rarely a straight forward way and more like a road filled with bumps we need to overcome.

But if you are willing to learn and pay attention to the things around you, you will easily handle every obstacle on your way.There is no limit to how much we can learn every day.  

You don’t just learn from books or professors, you learn from yourself and the things that happen to you.  You learn as much as you are willing to accept new experience and skills.

Sometimes we ignore the obvious and choose to be ignorant about the things that surround us. That is one of the worst things we can do to ourselves.

If we choose to learn, then we are already on the path to our ultimate goal in life, You can learn most anything if you pay attention .

Don’t make excuses.  Our goal should be set on learning a lesson with everything we do in life.  Once you get the lesson, the quality of life will become better and expand our capabilities.

Don’t fear failure.  It’s a vital part of life that helps us grow and become more resistant to life’s obstacles.  Failures can be wonderful teachers about life.

At the end of the day we all decide what we make of our life. I’m going to give it my all.

Whatever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it, they will want to come back and see you do it again, and they will want to bring others to show them how well you do what you do.

Walt Disney

Good stuff! I dare to say, some of the smartest folks out there are those who've paid attention and learned from their mistakes -- not the ones with the fanciest degrees.

Yes, good advice. And YES humans must guard against the 'Excuses or Blames', I try to remember the first man Mr. Adam, first one who set a precedence, "It is HER fault!"
Yep we must guard against it or we will do the same.
Love you lady
