The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It's about personal values

  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to others?
  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to ourselves?
  • If we are not courageous, how do we take chances, fail, learn and grow?

 

Willpower: use it and it grows as you grow.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Willpower: we use it or it slips away on us.

Willpower relies on energy. Use it wisely. Use it regularly. Drain it. Rebuild it. Strengthen it.

Willpower [and its outcome, self-control]: use it or fail to have it; use it and experience personal growth.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

As Napoleon Hill said, "Quitters Never Win and Winners Never Quit".

and

"When faced with defeat the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of people do. More than 500 of the most successful people America has ever known told the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them."

If Necessity is the Mother of Invention then Courage must be the Father.

by Rick Baker

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Necessity walks hand-in-hand with Courage and their finest offspring is Confidence.

We must not underestimate the courage and self-confidence required to think and act in new ways.

We must not forget the key role Necessity can play, especially in the face of major challenges.

Courage and Confidence are the keys to creativity, invention, & innovation.
