Currently I'm reading this book, Today Matters, by John Maxwell. As usual, I shall share with you some quotes I find it meaningful.
.
Hoping for a good future without investing in today is like a farmer waiting for a crop without ever planting any seed.

Good Decisions - Daily Discipline = A Plan Without a Payoff
Daily Discipline - Good Decisions = Regimentation without Reward
Good Decisions + Daily Discipline = A Masterpiece of Potential
.
You don't make decisions because they're EASY;
You don't make decisions because they're CHEAP;
You don't make decisions because they're POPULAR;
You make decisions because they're RIGHT.
.
Decisions helps us start. Discipline helps us finish.
.
Make an obstacle an opportunity. Make a negative a positive. If you can't give 100 percent, you won't make it. Never quit!

You have to pay a price. You will find that everything in life exacts a price, and you will have to decide whether the price is worth the prize.
