The extraordinary begins from the ordinary.
Think about it. Successful people don’t become successful overnight. They make a series of choices and they build daily routines and habits that eventually bring about success.
Everyday people win at life not because they are superheroes or because they have a magic pill or top-secret information. They win because they know how to become outstanding at accomplishing the ordinary in daily life.
So where do you start? Well, we think the following six quotes have the power to introduce significant change in all areas of your life starting right now.
“A good relationship test is how a person responds to the word ‘No.’ Love respects ‘No.’ Control does not.” —Dr. Henry Cloud
Have you ever thought about that? How often do you say no in your relationships, and what’s your motivation for saying no? This is a powerful thought from Dr. Cloud, the author of one of Dave Ramsey’s favorite books, Boundaries.
“Living with too many rules is legalistic, but allowing too much grace is enabling.” —Rachel Cruze
Finding a balance between legalism and grace can be
difficult. But once you do, your relationships will improve and you’ll experience freedom like never before.
“Speak words that bless your spouse in order to bless God.” —Dr. Emerson Eggerichs
Being generous and kind to others not only is a blessing to them, but it’s also a blessing to you—and, most importantly, God. Does your relationship with your spouse reflect that spirit of giving?
“Outrageous generosity is a character quality of people who win with money.” —Dave Ramsey
Giving is one of the most important things you can do with your money. If you canmake a habit of giving, even when you’re struggling, you’ll be an unbelievable giver when you’ve built wealth and are out of debt.
“From a kid’s perspective, what parents do in their private and personal lives has an enormous impact on them.” —Dr. Meg Meeker
Your kids are watching you. They’re watching how you handle your money and how you treat your spouse and others. Make sure you are setting an example you can be proud of . . . even when you think they’re not watching.
“Remember, the goal is not to raise great kids; it’s to raise kids who become great adults.” —Andy Andrews
Everyone talks about raising great kids, and that’s a wonderful goal. But what’s more important is raising kids who become great adults. It won’t always be easy. You might struggle along the way, but your relationship with your kids will be much healthier in the long run.
