Motivational Power Quote

 

Idle Hands

"Determine never to be idle.

It is wonderful how much

may be done if we are always doing."

Thomas Jefferson, Third U.S. President   

    

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Idle hands  

A person who sits and waits for success, will find out the hard way that the success bus doesn't stop were there sitting.  

The only path that waiting for success will take us is down the wrong path. That path is one that leads to frustration and moves us farther away from a successful life and our goals. 

Success doesn't come to those who sit and wait. Success is attracted by the doer in life, the ones that go out and create their success.  

It's amazing to watch a doer in action; they seem to be in a state of perpetual motion with a focused target to aim for.  They will continually focus on their target and if they get knocked off course. They will quickly get back on course and continue to move in the direction of their target.  

From time to time a doer will slip and fall and experience set backs, but they understand that they are temporary and they will remain focused on their goals and work through the challenges that they encounter.    

Idle hands waste our time and accomplish very little.  Create a purpose for your life one that will challenge you to stretch yourself beyond to reach. Do everything within your power to stretch yourself to achieve your purpose and your goals and you will look forward to your tomorrows and your future.

Lou, Idle hands are the devil's workshop, I've always heard. Great advice... There isn't much accomplished by couch potatoes...

My mother has a saying on her refrigerator - hands to work, heart to God. I love it. BTW, as you know I love to reblog your daily motivations and thoughts, but the fuction has been "temporarily disable" for what seems a very permanent time. Check out this blog today

A simpler way of saying "what's in motion tends to stay in motion and what is idle tends to remian idle." Stay in motion and keep providing great quotes. Enjoy the day!
