Giving An A

“Michelangelo is often quoted as having said that inside every block of stone or marble dwells a beautiful statue; one need only remove the excess material to reveal the work of art within. If we were to apply this visionary concept to education, it would be pointless to compare one child to another. Instead, all the energy would be focused on chipping away at the stone, getting rid of whatever is in the way of each child’s developing skills, mastery, and self-expression. We call this … [Read more...]

Ways to Access Your Genius Mind

Ways to Access Your Genius Mind By Donna Cercone In my research, I have discovered that there are six easy ways to access the genius mind. Number one, create quiet time, time to listen, time to observe, time to dream. Two, look at your learning or any area of life from different viewpoints. Pretend you are a friend of yourself; how would you see it? Or pretend that you are a tree. How would you see it? Observe. Number three, ask questions. Number four, pay attention to details, for it is … [Read more...]

Instead of Complaining…

Instead of complaining about what you don’t like about your job, start commending what you do like and see how quickly it improves. It’s easy to find fault with any job. Whatever your occupation or profession, there are always some unpleasant and mundane tasks you would rather omit.

Make it … [Read more...]

Take Control of Your Destiny by Jim Rohn One of the first things successful people realize is the old adage, “If it is to be, it is up to me.” That is your success and your course is up to you. This doesn't mean that you do it all alone. It simply means that you take responsibility for your life and your career. Too many people today look at opportunity and figure it is up to someone else to make sure they get it. They look at financial security and hope that the government will make sure … [Read more...]

Accurate Thinking

Accurate Thinking by W. Clement Stone Since the time of the Old Testament psalmist who wrote: “My thoughts are not your thoughts and my ways are not your way, say the Lord” . . .

Two Sources of the Habits of Thought

Two Sources of the Habits of Thought by Napoleon Hill All thought habits come from either one of two sources, both of them hereditary: Physical heredity: One inherits from this source something of the nature and character of all the generations of the human race which have preceded him. This inheritance is fixed by laws of nature. A great deal of it, however, can be modified by accurate thinking. Social heredity: Consists of all environmental influences, education, experience and … [Read more...]

Think Twice Before Speaking Once

Wise persons are those who Perhaps the greatest quality in a leader and the most valuable skill in building relationships is the ability to think before you speak. If you have a tendency to speak hastily in anger and regret your actions at leisure, the childhood admonition to count to ten before speaking will still serve you well. When you pause — if only for a moment — to consider the consequences, you may think better of what you were about to say. And if you must speak strongly, it’s a … [Read more...]
