“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.” ~Dr. Maya Angelou
“If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Beethoven composed music, sweep streets like Leontyne Price sings before the Metropolitan Opera. Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will have to pause and say: Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.”
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
“There are many wonderful things that will never be done if you do not do them.” ~Charles D. Gill
Motivation for you and me both for the weekend. Go for it; if God is in it, He is for you! Blessings, Lisa
A conundrum of a title for a conundrum of a problem….how to get a dreamer to move to action. As a writer and musician, I have no problem with the dreaming and thinking part. I love that part: planning, thinking, creating things in my mind. The rub? The nitty gritty of actually doing everything, moving out of my mind and into real action. So I am hereby inspiring myself into motion this morning with a few good quotes on the subject.
-“Words may show a man’s wit but actions his meaning.” – Benjamin Franklin
-“Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.” – Mark Twain
-“It’s not what you’re dreaming, but what you’re gonna do.” – U2
-“Start where you are; use what you can.” – Persecution Project Foundation, www.persecutionproject.org (check it out; help the Nuba/South Sudanese people today!)
-“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” – James 2:17
Hmmm….I better get moving. Have a wonderful day! Slainte, Lisa
