This week’s Monday Morning Message from Wm. H. Danforth, founder of Ralston Purina:
What is the Monday Morning Message?
Self starters are those that arouse action within themselves
“One must find the divine spark that initiates action,” says Dr. Holmes, a noted psychologist.
How do you think?
1. Ninety-five per cent of people think an aimless, desultory, gossipy flow of ideas.
2. Five per cent initiate, definitely direct, and definitely arrive at conclusions.
Thinking is the process of arriving at conclusions.
Pretty heavy stuff for a Monday morning! Only the 5% class will get it into their heads.
Very true. I meet so many people who are drifting through their lives. They have no purpose or direction and act as though their lives are out of their control.
Well, their lives are out of their control because they have chosen not to take control. They do not want to make decisions, so they decide to do nothing. They may say they are unhappy with their present circumstances, but they do not want to take action. Instead, they remain mired in their comfortable, unhappy existence.
Are you content to drift aimlessly through your life, taking what is handed to you? Or will you live the life you really want? You have to earn it, you know.
Are you one of the 95% or the 5%? Only you can decide. Start now.
