Greg S Reid Quotes

"Every individual who has attained personal achievement can tell you that the question is not will there be tough times, the question is when will they arrive? It’s through these moments of uncertainty that our character is revealed."

"Remember this: whether it’s a weed in the garden, a dream, desire—or even fear —what we feed and focus attention on will eventually grow the most."

"The same applies to opportunity. What we focus on is what we see. When one seeks the good, good things happen. When one seeks opportunity, opportunities occur."

"The realities are the same for us all.  Yes, the market may be the lowest in years, yet where one person sees only loss and challenge, another sees opportunity and possibility."

"Just the fact that you are reading this shows you are smart enough to know that somewhere along life’s journey, a wrench will be thrown into the gears. It also shows that you are intelligent enough to know right from wrong."

"Seizing opportunities within challenges exposes a character of strength, resolve, patience and, yes, stickability."

"It’s been suggested that personal achievement eventually comes from focusing on our major definite purpose (some call it passion) and then from the courage and stickability to see that vision through."

"When you meet with opposition of any nature, instead of quitting, you should turn on more willpower; kill the fires with stronger faith in your own ability while making up your mind that you will not sell yourself short, and eventually you will succeed."

"Life is not something that just happens to you. You are not merely a reactor. You are an actor. Of course, you can’t always control your circumstances, but you can control how you deal with them."

"You need to be able to discern when a great opportunity presents itself and act immediately. You could miss out on one of the best things that could ever happen to you because you don’t see the potential of what you are being offered, or because you procrastinate in making the right decision.”

"Every failure, every adversity, and every unpleasant circumstance carries with it the seed of equivalent benefit or advantage"

"You have to be able to adjust if necessary. This means, of course, that you first have to be able to identify when adjustments need to be made. You must be fair and open with yourself. Sometimes this includes listening to others’ feedback, even when you don’t wish to hear it." 

"For many, the obstacle is the failure—and they stop. But for those who see the achievement, the obstacle is simply a means to a better solution."

"What would your life look like if you had quit after the first failed attempt? You would never have learned how to walk, ride a bike, or drive. Do you still have the same level of determination and persistence that you had in your youth to achieve your goals?"

"Setbacks and failures teach us what does not work, so we can focus on a new solution that will. We’ve all heard of “trial and error,” yet often we do not exercise the patience and discipline necessary to see this process through to the end—but this is what it takes!" 

"“I try to learn something new every day by continually being aware of my environment and paying attention to what people are concerned with. Again, where there is a challenge, there is a solution, and that’s what I am looking for. I do this by examining what the given situation is—that is, the starting point—and what solution I’m looking for—in other words, the end destination. Anything in the middle is superfluous . . . it’s non-important.”"

"The real achievement comes from moving forward toward one’s dreams and being flexible."
