And once you have done that there is absolutely nothing that worrying about will do for you. You do your best and you let the rest come as it may with your head held high and your hopes for great things to come. Don’t waste one minute of your life wallowing in worries or sadness for things that you cannot change. Trust God, or trust the universe…trust whatever higher power you believe in. Life may not go the exact way you think it should, but trust that things are happening for your own best good so long as you are doing your very best in all you do.
6. Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work. – Aristotle

It may not be exactly perfection in each case, but it is certainly better than average. The difference between just doing the minimum, whether because you’re indifferent or dislike it, and doing your best because you really like doing it. It is about enjoying what you do, and doing what you enjoy.
7. It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lesson of failure. – Bill Gates
Some dieters celebrate weight loss with a giant slice of cake. Some savers celebrate getting out of debt by purchasing a new car. It’s important to learn from your failures to avoid making the same mistakes twice, and use success as a motivator to seek further success.
