Live Better, Work Better – This Week’s Tangential Remarks!

Remember last week’s Tangential Remarks? Here’s some more Food for Thought. This week’s TR is from one of my mentors, Denis Waitley. Read it, think about it and tell us what you think.

Here goes:

“The success of your efforts depends not so much on the efforts themselves, but rather on your motive for doing them.

The greatest companies and the greatest men and women in all walks of life have achieved their greatness out of a desire to express something within themselves that had to be expressed, a desire to solve a problem using their skills as best they could.

This is not to say that many of these individuals did not earn a great deal of money and prestige for what they produced. Many did. But the key to their successes was that they were motivated more by an inner magnificent obsession, a passion, than by any thought of profit or identity.

Ask yourself this question: ‘If it weren’t for money, time and personal responsibilities, what would I really love to do with my life?’ You and I need to answer it from our own individual perspectives, not simply answer ‘to help my company, family or country.’

In addition to these shared visions, autograph your career and life with your own signature.” Denis Waitley
