I have yet to find the man, however exalted his station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort
under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism.
TONE OF VOICE
It's not so much what you say
As the manner in which you say it;
It's not so much the language you use
As the tone in which you convey it.
"Come here!" I sharply said,
And the child cowered and wept.
"Come here," I said --
He looked and smiled
And straight to my lap he crept.
Words may be mild and fair
But the tone may pierce like a dart;
Works may be soft as the summer air
But the tone may break my heart;
For words come from the mind
Grow by study and art --
But tone leaps from the inner self,
Revealing the state of the heart.
Whether you know it or not,
Whether you mean or care,
Gentleness, kindness, love and hate,
Envy, anger, are there.
Then, would you quarrels avoid
And peace and love rejoice?
Keep anger not only out of your words --
Keep it out of your voice.

Nothing worthwhile comes easily. Half effort does not produce half results. It produces no results. Work, continuous work and hard work, is the only way to accomplish results that last.

SUCCESS FROM CRISIS
Muhammad Ali once shared a story about growing up. In this story, The Champ illustrates the principal of turning a negative into an empowering positive event.
As a kid growing up in Louisville Kentucky, Muhammad Ali's parents gave him a sparkling new bicycle. Growing up in a poor family, Ali never received many new things, so you can imagine his excitement as he took it to the gym to show his friends.
After gathering his friends together, you can imagine Ali's heartbreak when he went outside only to find his new bike was stolen. He reported the theft to a policeman and promised that if Ali ever found out who took the bike, he would beat him up. The policeman asked him if he knew how to box, which he didn't, so the officer taught him.
That was the start of Ali's boxing career.
To this day, Ali never found out who stole his bicycle. But every time I get into the ring, Ali said, I look across at the other fighter and tell myself:
"That's the guy who stole my bicycle".
Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires ... courage.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
