To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.

Truly outstanding

Put all you are into what you do. The results you get from your efforts depend largely on the passion and purpose you put into those efforts.

The difference between outstanding success and mediocrity is not so much in what you do. The difference comes from why you do it, and how solidly your effort is connected to authentic, meaningful purpose.

What if you can’t find a reason to put the very best of yourself into the effort? Then you’re probably better off doing something else.

You will get out of life what you put into it. So get yourself in a position where you can joyfully and enthusiastically give your very best to every effort.

Be completely honest with yourself about how you truly want life to be. Don’t borrow anyone else’s dream, because nothing can motivate you to do your best like your very own sincere vision.

Find that vision, understand it, focus on it, feel it and put its power into all you do. That’s what will create truly outstanding results.
