Mr. Rick's Weekly Lesson (Week of 12/4 - 12/10)
Tough Love means loving through the Tough Times

Never give up, and be confident in what you do. There may be tough times, but the difficulties which you face will make you more determined to achieve your objectives and to win against all the odds. Marta
You're going to go through tough times - that's life. But I say, 'Nothing happens to you, it happens for you.' See the positive in negative events. Joel Osteen
Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A 'you can do it' when things are tough. Richard M. DeVos
I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter's tough, but spring's coming. I believe that there's a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better. Steve Southerland
Tough times never last, but tough people do. Robert H. Schuller
I think you need to go through some stuff to really appreciate life and understand what it means to persevere, overcome and have faith. I think those tough times make you a stronger person. Judith Hill Life,
God already knows what we're made of, but perhaps He wants us to learn what we're made of. I think we would all agree that we learn more from our tough times than from our easy times. John Bytheway
Tough times don't last, but tough people do. And I've been through some tough times, and I know a lot of people can recall tough times, and maybe are going through some tough times right now, but they don't last. Alonzo Mourning
Our police officers put their lives on the line for us every single day. They've got a tough job to do to maintain public safety and hold accountable those who break the law. Barack Obama Day
If you quit when things get tough, it gets that much easier to quit the next time. On the other hand, if you force yourself to push through it, the grit begins to grow in you. Travis Bradberry
When you have tough times, and when you learn you can't be perfect in every situation, it's hard to accept, you know, because I still do expect that. But you just have to, because, you know, it's not about the situation. It's how you deal with it. You always have a choice. Ana Ivanovic
Laugh In tough times, everyone has to take their share of the pain. Theresa May
Mom spent the time that she was supposed to be a kid actually raising children, her younger brother and younger sister. She was tough as nails and did not suffer fools at all. And the truth was she could not afford to. She spoke the truth, bluntly, directly, and without much varnish. I am her son. Chris Christie

Part of “success” is being able to stay motivated and work
toward one goal for a long period of time. A 4 min. read
Which means that part of staying motivated is remembering what you’re
aiming for, and also WHY you’re aiming for it.
The WHY is the most important part.
Motivation stays when you are present.
When I first got into lifting weights, I learned very fast that the days I walked into the
gym, looked at myself in the mirror, and said to myself, “You’re still not there yet. You’re
small and it’s going to take forever to get to where you want to be,” I had a horrible lift.
I was starting off on the wrong foot, and the entire lift everything felt so much heavier
because my thoughts were heavy. I was making the entire process more difficult for
myself because I wasn’t living in the present — I was wishing for the future.
Motivation is what you remind yourself of, every single day.
A Chief Aim is what you want to become.
It’s that future vision of you. And Napoleon Hill instructs the reader to imagine that
future self and then write it down on a piece of paper.
Write down where you want to go, who you want to be, what you want to achieve, what
you want to attract into your life, and then every morning and every night, read it aloud
to yourself. The intention here, he says, is to embed it into your subconscious, so the law
of attraction can bring what you desire into your life.
I have never believed “wishing” for what you want is a very viable strategy, but I did
believe and see the value in Hill’s suggestion. So I wrote down my Chief Aim, and read it
aloud to myself every morning and every night for over a year.
And guess what? I started to see things shift in my life.
But more importantly, I felt more motivated than ever.
Motivation takes effort. You have to remind yourself of what you are working toward
and why. And writing it down and reading it (out loud — that’s the key) every day will
reinforce that desire deeper and deeper into who you are.
Our brains are like our bodies. If we feed them garbage, they get unhealthy.
In order to stay motivated, you have to give your brain the good stuff. You can’t eat
sugar and expect to be driven, or to grow at a rampant rate — and yet, that’s what
everyone expects.
Staying motivated is actually about challenging your brain. Eat the greens, so to
speak. Read material that takes a lot of focus. Work on your craft. Turn off your phone
and practice being in the moment, present, and deeply immersed in whatever you’re
working on.
The more you challenge yourself, the more motivated you will be to continue.
Motivation is a habit, not a carrot.
People think staying motivated has to do with seeing your goal dangled in front of you
and then chasing it.
And sure, sometimes that helps.

If you really feel off-track one day you can always pull up a movie or something that
really inspires you to keep going. Getting in the habit of doing is what will keep you
motivated over long periods of time. Because the more you do it, the better you’ll get at
it. The better you get at it, the more you’ll want to do it.
This is the cycle you want, because it just keeps going and going.
Motivation requires a balance of input and output.
Trust me, this is where 99% of people fail.
It’s not always about doing something. It’s also not about planning and planning and
thinking and imagining.
There is a time for putting your nose to the grind stone, and a time for stepping back
and allowing yourself to recharge.
True success doesn’t happen overnight.
The really big wins don’t happen in a month, or three months, or sometimes even a
year or two years.
Which means the name of the game is endurance.
Motivation takes knowing yourself, and what you’re truly searching for.
If you chase something for the external reward, you’ve already lost. That’s the kind of
motivation you can’t sustain.
Real motivation comes from curiosity.
We do things over long periods of time because they fascinate us, and because we want
to explore something new within ourselves.
This is what it means to know your WHY. Why are you doing what you’re doing?

Respect and Honor

Mr. Rick's Weekly Handout (Week of 7/24/17)

The One Thing We All Need To Be Better At by Dan Petersen
Negative things will happen in your life, but don’t live them multiple times in your mind. What’s stressing you, is killing you. What you’re angry about, is killing you. Negative thoughts can produce a state of crises in our body and this can be damaging over time.
If there’s one thing we probably all need to be better at, it’s letting go of negative thoughts. This one thing, which can be so hard to do, could be the single most important thing we can do.
We all have negative thoughts. But trying to kick them out just puts us in a battle with ourselves — one part of yourself trying to overcome another. This actually gives the undesirable thoughts more power.
What we need is more mindfulness — turning our attention away from the negative thoughts. The potential effects of a world-wide revolution of people becoming more mindful is immeasurable. Peace in the world has to be won by individuals choosing to be more peaceful within themselves.
Life is best lived from a state of surrender. All the planning and striving in the world cannot match the peace experienced from an inner disposition of surrender. And the clarity of thought and humble attitude it produces can create unexpected opportunities.

Mr. Rick's Weekly Lesson ( Week of 5/15/17)

To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him. Buddha
We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future. George Bernard Shaw
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. Confucius
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love. Saint Basil
We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far. Swami Vivekananda
