Owning a life quote

Blog, Personal Development Comments Off

My personal life quote of choice is “Never grow a wishbone where your backbone ought to be”, which I took from a Mark Twain novel but was also penned in a poem by Clementine Paddleford, a US food writer, and I have it in big print on the wall of my office.

Why do I like this quote in particular?  Because it is a constant reminder to me that you have to get out there and work hard for what you want, it is not going to come to you by just wishing for it.  Certainly I believe in the power of the positive mind, but that fits with the general theme of standing tall, being positive and confident and maintaining a go-get-it attitude.  This has been particularly relevant as a business woman in the male dominated shipping container industry.

I believe that living by a life quote helps you to remain focussed, particularly when things do get a bit tough, they can help refocus and find equilibrium.  Why don’t you find one for yourself?
