My Five Laws of Encouragement
Every morning, I read My Five Laws of Encouragement. They are here to battle stinkin’ thinkin’ on my part. Self-doubt. Limiting beliefs. Bad company. They are truths about who I am and help me press on to success through the day. What are your Five Daily Laws? Write them down and read them every morning… need some insight and inspiration? I have a bunch of excellent quotes that you can choose from. If you set up your own Laws, send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post below and share with everybody that we might encourage one another. MAKE it great!
Royce’s Daily Five Laws of Encouragement
- “That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.” ~Abe Lincoln
Nobody starts out a success. They gain it over time. It takes hard work, tenacity, and constant growth. Don’t worry that others have achieved great success. Instead, let them be mentors showing the way to success. I have the skills to achieve success. Apply them today.
- “I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took any excuse.” ~ Florence Nightingale
Whining about others being better than me is a false pride allowing me to hide behind their success and hence, not pushing for my own. It’s an excuse to be lazy and do what I want instead of doing what’s right.
- “Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” ~ Les Brown
Stop living my fears. My fears are NOT who I am. I am fearfully and wonderfully made, I am part of the species that has gone to the moon, seen beyond the stars, mapped the ocean floor, built a mechanical heart, found exotic cures for many diseases, overcome gravity, harnessed electrons, housed billions, fed the hungry, helped the poor, created laughter, helped my neighbor – and if we can accomplish those things together, I should be able to tackle anything else I can dream of.
- “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” ~ Henry Ford
Annihilate stinking thinking. I can accomplish a whole lot more with a good attitude than with a bad one. I CAN and I WILL succeed.
- “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything you gave me.” ~ Erma Bombeck
Isn’t that my ultimate purpose? To glorify God by using everything I have been given? I have the seeds of greatness in me – I am made in the image of God – what is there that I cannot achieve if it is His desire? Do it.
