Desire drives us to pursue our interests.  We won’t go far if our desire doesn’t become a passion for that which we are striving.  Desire and passion create enthusiasm, which energizes us to act. If we attain much in life, action is required.  “So what do we do?” asks automobile executive Lee Iacocca. “Anything.  Something.  So long as we just don’t sit there.  If we screw it up, start over.  Try something else.  If we wait until we’ve satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late.” So, what if we fail?

In America, there are no limits set on your success.  You can do anything. It doesn’t depend on chance or luck; it depends on hard work and persistence.  You can do anything by working at it.

Success in any undertaking depends on your desire and your attitude.  It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what you look like, or where you went to school.

A woman in California woke up one morning several years ago and discovered that her husband had disappeared with all her money. Having never worked a day in her life, after losing her home and everything her first husband had worked his entire life to accumulate, and in her late 70’s, she was forced to find work.

Almost everyone wants to be more organized, more productive, and more effective. It is hard to organize your life so you can live it.  It takes discipline, but it can be done.   Some people get more done than others, but everyone has the same amount of time.   The difference is how you use your time.

We all have the same amount of time,...
