Quotes about sacrifices for success

  Always have an attitude of gratitude throughout every phase of life. Remember all those who contributed to who you have become, no matter how small their efforts were. Remember those who said a kind word. Those who encouraged you when you wanted to quit. Those who made you smile. Those who kept you in their prayers. Those who gave you a day's meal. Those who stood up for you when no one else cared. Those who went above and beyond their call of duty for the sake of you. Those who kept you in check. Those who gave you their very last. All the efforts your parents, grandparents, other relatives, and friends made, so you could be where you are. You are standing on their numerous sacrifices, and even if it seems insignificant to you now. Always remember there were times when they sacrificed everything. Be thankful for all those who contributed to your success. 1. “Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” ―  Marcus Aurelius 2. “Be mindful. Be g

Poems about prayer.

                                                            The best person to pray over your soul is you. How often do you pray for yourself? How often do you pour out your heart to God, unashamed? You don't need to cover up anything. He already knows everything about you. Every good and evil deed. He knows that which you have been struggling with. He knows that secret thing that you've been doing for a long time.  I remember my co-worker had asked me to pray for her. I suppose she thought that because I was a Christian God would hear me and not her, but that isn't so. Her prayer is just as effective as mine. We're all sinners saved by grace and God knows our hearts.  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.  Psalm 51:17.  Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend into heaven, thou art there: If I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the win

Wisdom quotes about life

 The power of choice and free will is a blessing but can become a curse if misused. Your future is shaped by your choices. Every day that you wake up you are either making a choice for or against your future. But, not just your future, those who look up to you. Those who are under your care. Those who are following in your footsteps. Let your choices be your power, not your punishment. Yes, you are imperfect and you will make mistakes, but remember that there are consequences for your actions, and they not only affect you but others, directly and indirectly. Think before you do! Whatever your choices are you'll have to live with them and others may face the repercussions too. Make good choices! 1. “You cannot control the behavior of others, but you can always choose how you respond to it.” ―  Roy T. Bennett, 2. “But until a person can say deeply and honestly, "I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday," that person cannot say, "I choose otherwise.”

60 empowering quotes to read while pursuing your dreams.

Many like to talk about the success of famous people but only a few are interested in what it took for them to get there. How often have we stopped to think about the process that leads up to their success? I'd like to talk about the waiting period. You won't hear many people talking about this. Who likes to wait? Who wants to wait for years? We get flustered when we are in traffic for hours, in long queues at the hospital, supermarket, theatre, etc. We just can't be bothered by the long wait. These scenarios are no different from pursuing our dreams. Many of us can't be bothered by the wait that's why we stop, not to rest, but to quit on our dreams.  Take for example Abraham Lincoln.  Lost his job, 1832 Defeated for the legislature, 1832 Failed in business, 1833 Elected to the legislature, 1834 His sweetheart (Ann Rutledge) died, 1835 Had a nervous breakdown, 1836 Defeated for Speaker, 1838 Defeated for nomination for Congress, 1843 Elected to Congress, 1846 Lost r
