Quote #11, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes.I love them because they make me think.What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #11....

"Instead of thinking about where you are, think about where you want to be.It takes twenty years of hard work to become an overnight success."

-Diana Rankin-

Wait a minute! That doesn't make any sense. 20 years and overnight success don't actually mix together like peanut butter and jelly. I believe Rankin is stating that you need to plan ahead and have some vision of what you want to be, to do, to accomplish. Where you are now, is, what it is.The question is, where are you going? Only you can answer that. Do it in your mind first!

As to Rankin's point of 20 years to be an overnight success? This apparently is a spoof. You can bet that anyone you see successful, be it J Paul Getty, Richard Gere, Michael Jordan, Carrie Underwood, Michael Phelps, etc. etc has worked their tail off like there is no tomorrow to get where they are.

Where are you? Where do you want to go, and what do you want to accomplish?

Thats my view..... WHAT SAY YOU?
