Monday Mottoes – #17

inspirational-quote-elevator-to-success_thumbEverywhere you look, folks want the fast-track to success. Well, if you can go slowly or quickly, it only makes sense to take the quicker course.

But the fact is, there are no quick fixes.  We need deliberate and careful planning if we’re going to head anywhere in life.

Which brings us to today’s motto:  “The elevator to success is out of order.  You’ll have to use the stairs, one step at a time.” (Joe Girard)

It may sound discouraging if you’re revving up to go, go, go, yet when you make those steady steps in the right direction, you’ll never find yourself moving so stairsquickly that you’ve derailed in the process.  In my opinion, better to start out slow and steady and pick up the pace, than to go pedal-to-the-medal and find that you’ll need to make a u-turn down the line.

After all, don’t most health and fitness afficionados say to skip the elevator and take the stairs?  A small effort today, adds up to big accomplishments in the future.

Sweat equity never hurt anyone, wear it as a badge of honor.

As a matter of fact, I’m sure you’ll be gaining momentum with every step, and moving in the right direction.  So don’t worry about the speed– it will come, as well.

Happy Monday, everyone!
