“Success is not determined by the outcome. The outcome is the result of having already decided that you are successful to begin with.”
― T.F. Hodge
MKMMA: “If you quit on the process, you are quitting on the result.” ―Idowu Koyenikan
i particularly value the last sentence in this quote – because it can change everything about my strategy and outcome:
“All great masters are chiefly distinguished by the power of adding a second, a third, and perhaps a fourth step in a continuous line. Many a man/woman had taken the first step. With every additional step you enhance immensely the value of your first.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
My goodness how approp Is this quote to the MKMMA experience:
“My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is Heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, diluted, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate… at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in a maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, let up, or slow up.”~ Robert Moorehead
“Confidence isn’t optimism or pessimism, and it’s not a character attribute. It’s the expectation of a positive outcome.” ~ Rosabeth Moss Kanter
I take that one step further: by designing and programming the desired outcome – everyone including yourself, knows what needs to be done to make it all happen. No more wishy-washy.
It’s still kind of fascinating that every week all these quotes drop into my lap – they are only appropriate for MKMMA, but exactly where we are in the process.
This week’s picture is one exception that I didn’t take. My sister-in-law took it on a dive trip to Fiji. She got that picture and then had to sit in a hotel bathroom for 3 hours and wait for a cyclone to Pass thru
