Inspirational Thoughts of the Week: Week 3 January 18 to 24 2016

Two inspirational thoughts for this week, one each from Florence Nightingale and Wayne Gretzky.

Florence Nightingale Quote: “I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took any excuse.”

Florence Nightingale Quote: "I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took any excuse."

The above quote is from Florence Nightingale:

“I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took any excuse.”

Very good advice from Florence Nightingale.  Too often in the past have I fallen into the trap of trying to defer responsibility or shift the blame for a situation onto someone else.  By shifting the blame and responsibility for a negative situation on to someone else, I have also shifted any power I had to deal with the situation.  If you shift the blame and responsibility to another party, that person has all the power!

The second quote for this week is from…

Wayne Gretzky Quote: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

Wayne Gretzky Quote: "You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take."

The second inspirational thought is from Wayne Gretzky:

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

Wayne Gretzky has nailed it in one sentence.  To make things happen you must take action.  If you take a shot you at least have a 1% to 100% chance of success, if you do not have a shot you have a 0% chance of success!
