  • 7 Must-Read Life Lessons from Abraham Lincoln:
    Prepare for Success

    “Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four hours sharpening the axe.”

    Before you can succeed, you must prepare. When Lincoln was an unknown attorney in the backwoods of Illinois he was preparing for success, when Lincoln became an Illinois State Senator, he was preparing for success, and even when he lost the election for the U.S. senate twice, he was preparing for success. What are you doing in preparation for success? Lincoln said, “I will prepare and some day my chance will come.”


    “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”

    You can’t stroll to a goal, you must hustle; you must move quickly in order to gain the momentum necessary to break free from the gravitational pull of the commonplace. The best things in life come to those who hustle. Are you hustling?

    Remember That Greatness is Possible

    “That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.”

    If someone else can succeed in the business that you’re in, that is proof that you can succeed as well. If someone else can become rich in the state that you’re in, that is proof that you become rich as well. You have all that the greatest of men have had: a mind, and a will. Don’t make excuses, if someone else can do it, so can you… And who knows? You may be able to do it faster and better; never underestimate you abilities.

    Become Worthy of a Good Reputation

    “Reputation is like fine china, once broken it’s very hard to repair.”

    Work to be, the way you want to be perceived. Don’t try to look good, be good. A good name is more valuable than fine gold and “choice” rubies.

    Practice becoming honorable.

    You can be just as honest, have just as much integrity, walk in just as much humility, and possess just as much discipline as the greatest men who have ever lived.

    Make the Years Count

    “And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
