improve your life #1

I’m back from my two trips and had the opportunity to play golf again this weekend.  Although rusty, it was nice to be out on the golf course again.

This morning, I was reading an article about how your lifestyle reflects who you are – and came across another article on improving one’s life.  There was one section of the article that really resonated with me:

“Can a poor person become wealthy? Of course! The unique combination of desire, planning, effort and perseverance will always work its magic. The question is not whether the formula for success will work, but rather whether the person will work the formula. That is the unknown variable. That is the challenge that confronts us all. We can all go from wherever we are to wherever we want to be. No dream is impossible provided we first have the courage to believe in it.”

I know that the students in our program value success in life, but I wonder if they can actually define success and are willing to put in the time and effort to achieve success.  I think this article is great, because you are provided with 13 strategies to improve your life.  I also like it because they are things you can control, instead of looking outside yourself for the answers.

Check it out here:

My three favorites:

  • #3: Admit your mistakes.
  • #5: Believe in yourself.
  • #10: Find Your place.

And the one that I need to work on:

  • #7: Conserve your time.

What about you?  What are your favorites?  What do you need to work on?

Now’s a great time to start!
