Helping others is not difficult at all when we understand that giving is a pleasure, not a sacrifice.
Dharma Master Cheng Yen
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
There is no greater sin than desire, no greater curse than discontent. He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.
Wake up determined. Go to bed satisfied.
You will never be who you want to be, until you are happy with who you are.
Thomas F. Shubnell
One of man’s biggest mistakes is to believe that he’s working for someone else.
You are always working for yourself. You may be an important employee to someone, but for yourself you are everything. You are your life. You work for yourself!
The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning.
Ivy Baker Priest
Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.
What do you get out of your job and what does your boss (if there is one) get out of you? Do you benefit from your job in more ways than just earning money?
If you don’t, you should reevaluate your current priorities and change something!
