None of the Secrets of Success Will Work Unless You Do

You can't fulfill your destiny on a theory. it takes WORK. You are made for action. It is much more natural for you to be doing than sitting. Success simply takes good ideas and puts them into action. What the free enterprise system really means is that the more enterprising you are, the more free you are.

The word work is not an obscure Biblical concept; it appears in the Bible over 500 times. Often the simple answer to your prayer is: Go to work.What you believe doesn't amount to very much unless it causes you to climb out of the grandstand and onto the playing field. You cannot dream yourself into what you could be. The only time a lazy person ever succeeds is when he tries to do nothing. A famous old saying says it best: "Laziness travels so slowly, poverty soon overtakes it.

".The world is divided into people who do things and people who talk about doing things. Belong to the first group - there is far less competition.

If the truth were known, most of our troubles arise from loafing when we should be working, and talking when we should be listening.There is a man in the world who never gets turned down, wherever he chances to stray; he gets the glad hand in the populous town, or out where farmers make hay; he is greeted with pleasure on deserts of sand, and deep in the isles of the woods; wherever he goes there is a welcoming hand - he's the man who delivers the goods. (Whitman).- John L Mason, from the book Conquering An Enemy Called Average.
