Victor or Victim

People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I do not believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they cannot find them, make them.

— George Bernard Shaw —

So true.  I quit playing the “circumstance blame-game” many years ago. In all situations we have the opportunity to play the role of victor or victim. Which role do you play?

Character

Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.

Fools

Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.

— Ben Franklin —

  Take that one to the bank. P.E.A.C.E. Jay@EagleLaunch.com James 5:9, “Do not grumble against one another, brothers, so that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the door.”  (ESV)

Success and Action

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful men keep moving forward. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.

— Conrad Hilton —

  There is nothing I can add to this other than the fact that success is usually found in giving something one more try. Do you give up too easily or do you continue to fight and move forward? P.E.A.C.E. Jay@EagleLaunch.com Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”  (ESV)

Whine or Win

Complaining about a problem without posing a solution is called whining.

— Teddy Roosevelt —

  Truth. P.E.A.C.E. Jay@EagleLaunch.com Here is a solution for you: John 16:33, “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation.  But take heart; I have overcome the world.”  (ESV)  

Good Better Best

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.

— Winston Churchill —

  Good, better, best, never let it rest; until your good is better and your better is your best… Make the most of yourself by continuously giving your best effort to become better today than you were yesterday. P.E.A.C.E. Jay@EagleLaunch Proverbs 14:23, “All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.”…
