John Mason emailed this to me this morning and I just had to copy it to my blog.
Here are some important questions to ask yourself today.
- Both enthusiasm and pessimism are contagious. How much of each do you spread?
- If someone were to pay you a hundred dollars for each kind word you spoke and collect fifty dollars for each unkind word, would you be rich or poor?
- Are you a creature of circumstance or a creator of circumstance?
- Are you ready for your opportunity when it comes?
- Do you make others feel bigger or smaller when they’re around you?
- Are you spending your life answering questions nobody is asking?
- If you have God’s promise for something, isn’t that enough?
- Why worry when you can pray?
- How old is your attitude?
- Do you acquire the doubts of others?
- Are you willing to follow the truth no matter where it leads?
- What progress are you standing in the way of? (Tim Redmond)
- How much has fear and worry about things that never happened cost you?
- Do you go through a problem—or try to go around it and never get past it?
- Do you say, “There ought to be a better way to do it” or do you say, “That’s the way it’s always been done”?
- Are you deliberately planning to be less than you’re capable of being?
- If not you, then who? If not now, then when? (Hillell)
- Are you willing to give up what you have in order to become what you can be?
- What do you believe in the depth of your being?
- What is the first, small step you can take to get moving?
- “If you don’t have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true?” (Oscar Hammerstein)
- Do you look at the horizon and see an opportunity, or look into the distance and fear a problem?
- Do you put off until tomorrow the things you’ve already put off until today?
- Has failure gone to your head?
- Are you traveling or going somewhere?
- Do you see difficulties in every opportunity, or see opportunities in every difficulty?
- How many people of great potential have you known? Where on earth did they all go?
- Ten years from today, what will you wish you had done now?
I love John Mason’s wealth of wisdom. He is the author of An Enemy Called Average and other amazing books that are a must for your personal library.
Have a great day.
