Golden Midlife Opportunity

Know Your Purpose

“The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself.  It is in yourself.  It is not in your environment;  it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others;  it is in yourself alone.”   — Orison Swett Marden

  1. Jeff,

    As always, very inspiring, thank you. Marden has hit the mark here with his quote. Just my two quick cents is that we all have choices to make in our lives, and it is these choices that we make which truly teach us to be ourselves, and to reach and exceed our goals and be happy.

  2. Michael, mistakes are a dime a dozen. I’ll take a nickel’s worth.
    Every single one of us will make a mountain of mistakes. If we are lucky enough to live through them, we have the opportunity to turn them into transformational opportunities.

  3. Jeff, this is great. Great quote from a man that evidently knew what he was about and the potential that he contained. Sorry it took so long to reach out to you. First thing I did, believe it or not, when I got home the last day we made contact was visit Mid Life Celebration, I am glad I did! 🙂 I look forward to your thoughts and comments from here on out. I hope you’re ready, I am. Blessings dear friend!

  4. Kevin, nice to have you visit. It all comes down to personal accountability, doesn’t it.
    It’s probably the most challenging things in life to admit.
    But once we “confess”, we are set free to achieve our dreams.
    Carpe diem. 🙂
