IS WHAT YOU WANT WORTH WHAT YOU MUST GIVE UP TO GET IT?
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
The hand of the diligent will rule, while the slothful will be put to forced labor
“Stay dressed for action and keep your lamps burning
This is the true joy in life — being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
~George Bernard Shaw
The difference between a helping hand and an outstretched palm is a twist of the wrist.
Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light.
~Norman B. Rice
I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.

Most people can see problems. That doesn’t require any special ability or talent. Someone who thinks in terms of solutions instead of just problems can be a difference maker. A team filled with people who possess that mind-set can really get things done.
Your personality type, upbringing, and personal history may affect how solution oriented you are naturally. However, anyone can become solution oriented. Consider these truths that all solution-seeking people recognize:
Problems are a matter of perspective.
They are simply parts of life.
You can’t avoid them. But that doesn’t mean you have to allow them to become problems. The best thing you can do is to meet them with a solution-oriented mind-set. It’s just a matter of attitude.
All problems are solvable
Problems either stop us or stretch us.
Problems either hurt you or help you.
Depending on how you approach them, they’ll stop you from succeeding or stretch you so that you not only overcome them, but also become a better person in the process. The choice is yours.
