Becoming Limitless

by Ssregina Regina (2019-04-10)

As I write this, I'm reminded Becoming Limitless Review of the famous quote on persistence by Calvin Coolidge..."Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common that unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."The common sense point here is simple. Successful people commit to taking personal responsibility for their lives and career. Only you can make you a success. You have to take personal responsibility for creating the successful life and career you want and deserve. Persistence is the mark of people who are committed to taking personal responsibility for their lives and careers. Persistent people keep going; even in -- no especially in -- the face of difficulties and problems. Promise yourself that you will commit to taking personal responsibility for your life and career in 2010. Be persistent. Keep at it, and you will reach your goals.Can you name right now your 5 most important personal values? What are you made of? What are the most important beliefs you carry within yourself?If you can't name these values, don't feel so bad. I would guess most people would have a hard time with this question. If you can, how often do you think about them? Do you make all of your decisions truly based on these personal values? Is your daily routine a reflection of these values? Your relationships, your job -- do they all mirror the core of who you truly are? Really?I've worked with a lot of people throughout my life and many come to me dissatisfied with the way their lives are going. They are not happy at work. They are not happy with their bodies. Relationships are a mystery. And as much as they keep trying their best, they still can't find that true inner peace they so much long for.It is not that they are clinically depressed or cannot function. Everything is fine, but life is boring or dissatisfying -- annoying at times. It is hard to know where to go, or what choices to make. They are stressed out, burned out, lonely.
