Dare to be different

Dare to be different.

Below are some ideas on how to set yourself apart from the competition:

  • Take pride in your work
  • Discipline yourself
  • Learn something new everyday
  • Be yourself

It is difficult to please everyone, that is why you must please yourself first. So make sure yourself is demanding enough to hold you to extremely high standards. Also, take time for inspiration, yoga, meditation or whatever works best for you.

Let him that would move the world first move himself. - Socrates

You learn as much from those who have failed as from those who have succeeded. - Michael Johnson

I like to take time out each day and go visit Mother and Father Nature. They can teach us a lot if we'll just stop, look, and listen occasionally.

Russell, Me too. However, I thought it was Mother Nature and Father Time?
