S:0755 Quote: Elevating Life

(Quotes are capsules of information, reinforcement or enlightenment.)

 

“I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.”

Henry David Thoreau

 

Coaching Point: The key to this quote is not “endeavor” it’s “conscious.” You can work hard, endeavor, on the wrong things and end up changing nothing. But when you are conscious about your world, your desires, your resources, your activities, then wonderful things can happen. And that’s encouraging. Are you conscious?
