Motivational Power Quote


Be Willing to Get Down and Dirty

“He who finds diamond must grapple in the mud

and mire because diamond are not found as polished stones.

They are made.”

Henry B. Wilson, 1812- 1775, Vice President of the United States


As I see it . . . . . . .


Be willing to get down and dirty


Success is not served to us on a silver platter. If you want success bad enough you have to be willing to get down and dirty and work hard to achieve it.


Success is found in the willingness. When you have the willingness to work hard and you combine your hard work with working smart the combination opens doors to greater opportunities.


When you have written goals and you have the willingness and persistence to stay on purpose and not to become distracted. By remaining focused goals you are moving closer to achieving those goals


If you get knocked down by adversity and you have the willingness to get up, try and again success becomes within your reach.


Have the willingness to say yes to success and a big no to failure.


Willingness is an attitude of yes I can and in yes I will; with that attitude everything becomes within your reach.


Be willing to get down and dirty and work hard to succeed and have the willingness to keep going.

Isn't that the truth.  That is why one has to keep his head straight.

Great quote, one I have used many times. I would always hear my dad speak it, it continues to have special meaning.

Thank you for sharing the quote with all of us.
