Ponderings – Ourselves

Motivation is great. I think of it as the initial building block of success, that spark to ignite the fire of passion which smolders inside all of us. However, it can only take us so far. You can read as many books and watch as many videos as you want, but what will be there to take its place once the flames begin to dwindle and we slowly sink back into our monotonous routines and self-destructive habits?

Discipline. Our journeys to success start with motivation, with that spark, and end with us reaching our goals. But there’s a lot of space in-between the two. A space full of a lot of difficult, not-so-fun things. That’s where self-discipline comes in. Disciplining ourselves, hardwiring our minds for success. Suddenly, the menial tasks seem less menial, the stressful times more manageable, for we have something else pushing us forward.

Ourselves.

That is when change occurs.

Is There Such A Thing As The “Right Regrets”?

Arthur Miller, American playwright, essayist, and prominent figure in twentieth-century American theatre, was once quoted saying:

“Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.”

Now when I first came across the quote, I really didn’t get it. The “right regrets”? Continue reading “Is There Such A Thing As The “Right Regrets”?”

Does Prosperity Make Monsters Of Us?

In a recent post I talked about how we all view success differently: how the way you perceive success is most likely far different than how I would. It’s definitely a subjective term. Now let’s take it a step further. Continue reading “Does Prosperity Make Monsters Of Us?”
