To be aware of a single shortcoming in oneself is more useful than to be aware of a thousand in someone else.

Face the difficulties

The difficult choices become even more difficult when you persist in avoiding them. Instead of running away from those difficult choices, face them and make your decision.

As difficult as it may be, the sooner you decide, the sooner you can begin to create positive value. Go ahead, and get started transforming a difficult situation into an opportunity to move forward.

Hesitation and indecisiveness will only enable things to get worse. Make the decision, get started taking action, and get moving in the direction of making things better.

You can make a difference, so get busy making that difference. There’s no sense in wasting your energy on avoiding the inevitable.

Put your fate in your own hands by choosing to quickly deal with life’s difficulties. Feel how good and right it feels to be decisive and persistently effective.

Say what must be said, decide what must be decided, and do what must be done. The sooner and more willingly you face the difficulties, the sooner you’ll get beyond them.
