None of the secrets of success will work unless you do the work. The Bible, a book of faith talks about work over 500 times in the scripture. Often time, the simple answer to your problem is:
go to work
Be doers of the word not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
When you hear and don’t do you allow deception and inaccuracy to come into your life. That’s why you know people who read good books, got to church, listen to tapes and are still a mess. They don’t practice what they have learned. 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 the doing things. Belong to the first group – there is far less competition.
There’s 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 the farmer make hay;
He is greeted with pleasure on deserts of sand, and deep in the isles of the woods;
Wherever he goes, there’s a welcoming hand – he’s the man who delivers the goods.
There’s a facelift you can perform on yourself that is guaranteed to improve your appearance. It’s called a smile.
Laughter is like changing a baby’s diaper – it solves a problem and makes things more acceptable for a while.
I believe that every time you smile, and eve much more so when you laugh, you add something to your life. A smile is a curve that helps us see things straight.
Janet Layne said,
Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important
A merry heath doeth good like a medicine
A good laugh is the best medicine, whether you are sick or not.
The wheels of progress aren’t turned by cranks.
Tom Walsh says,
Every minute your mouth is turned down you lose 60 seconds of happiness.
Paul Bourge wrote,
Unhappiness indicates wrong thinking.
just as ill health indicates a bad regime. It’s impossible to smile on the outside without feeling better on the inside. If you can laugh at it, you can live with it. Smile, it adds to your face value.
It was only a sunny smile
But it scattered the night.
Thus, little it cost in giving,
It made the day worth living, (Anonymous)
