Ready to Succeed Hanging

Success is a funny thing! It's a hard word to define because it means something different to everyone. Success could be landing that first job out of college or maybe just paying the bills this month. Then there is the pitfall of measuring yourself to others and feeling success will never be yours. I believe success is within each of us and it's up to us to find the success we are looking for. When I was teaching I used to tell me students that success is part motivation, part inspiration and part perspiration. If you want something, you have to go after it. You can't wait around for others to do it for you. Success is not easy. I made this Ready to Succeed Hanging for my cubical at work as a motivational tool and a reminder to keep reaching for my dreams. I found this motivational reminder from the May 27, 2013 issue of Woman's World magazine. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
