“Study the lives of highly successful people from any corner of life, across history, in any environment, and you will discover they share one trait: They keep moving forward. Sometimes slowly. Often with great difficulty. Frequently after painful mistakes, defeats, or failures. Success is less about talent and opportunities, and more about commitment and motivation.”

“That thing you thought you’d do
You start to think you can’t;
You always say tomorrow,
But you haven’t got a plan.
Everyone’s asking questions,
And all you do is dodge.
That career that you’d imagined
Was only a mirage.
The older that you get,
The smaller that you feel;
You forget what’s only in your head,
And what is really real.
Sometimes people make it;
They become who they meant to be.
But most of the time,
Dreamers only dream.”
― Margo T. Rose, The Words

“Make a life while making a living.”

“Creativity without discipline will struggle, creativity with discipline will succeed.”

“Effective life management isn’t about finding more time to fill; it’s about recognizing you don’t have to do anything you do not choose to do. Hiding a choice behind a “have to” is irresponsible. Everything filling the white space in your life is there because you chose to put it there. We always have the power to say, “No.” We just need to be ready to live with the consequences.”
