Quote of the Day

3 years, 9 months ago

My goal this year is to memorize a quote every week so someday I’ll be able to bust out pieces of wisdom whenever I feel like it. Today I thought I’d share my quote because who knows it might just inspire you! :)

"To be ambitious for wealth, and yet always expecting to be poor;
to be always doubting your ability to get what you long for,
is like trying to reach east by traveling west.
There is no philosophy which will help a man to succeed when he is always doubting his ability to do so, and thus attracting failure.
No matter how hard you work for success, if your thoughts are saturated with the fear of failure, it will kill your efforts, neutralize your endeavors and make success impossible" -Charles Baudouin.

That was a quote I really needed today… or the last couple of days… I guess it’s one I should write down in my “It’s one of those days” emergency notebook… just kidding… I don’t really have one of those, but I think I’m about to start writing one… Thanks for that!

That’s a beautiful quote.

@Roxy I have a small notebook that I like to carry around with me, I often use it for jotting down quotes that i hear, sometimes just to write my feelings when its one of those days. It’s great always having that there to write in. Sometimes its just nice to write a bad feeling down, then rip it out and throw it away, as if youre throwing the problem away and welcoming something better.

@ Kayla–It IS fun to put a problem on paper & then destory it, haha I used to do that exercise with kids–its fun :)
@ McKenzie/Rox, McKenzie this is awesome. I started keeping quotes a year or two ago. At my desk I started writing some down. The first one (that I just had to write down & post it up so I wouldn’t forget) was “you cannot make a mistake. you can only make your next best step.” Basically that failure isn’t an option, it’s not possible, which is just so comforting :) Anyways.. i began writing other quotes on the same sheet of paper–only to have it fill up and for me to have to start on another sheet of paper. I’m on my 4th one now.. and they’re all in different color pen, different sizes, were written at different periods in my life.. I think whenever I bring them home, i’ll have them under the glass top of my table so I can always see them. Sorry for the long response.. :) You’ll be good to have as a wing man at a party a year from now McKenzie :)

“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
