Two Principles of Success, part 2

Today we continue our look at The Templeton Plan with an examination of Step 9, “Utilizing Two Principles of Success.” In this step, we find two of Templeton’s favorite quotes on the principle of perseverance.

Quote 1:
“The difficult we do immediately. The impossible may take a little longer.”

Quote 2:
“He who floats with the current, who does not guide himself according to higher principles, who has no ideal, no convictions—a thing moved, instead of a living and moving being—an echo, not a voice.”—Swiss philosopher Henri Frédéric Amiel

Quote of the Month

Today we continue our exploration of John Templeton’s twenty-one steps detailed in The Templeton Plan with more on Step 18: Giving as a Way of Life. Since we are now in November and counting down to Thanksgiving, we examine John Templeton’s emphasis on the concepts of gratitude and giving. This saying was a favorite of his to include in his Thanksgiving cards that he and his wife mailed to friends and family every year.

“Thanksgiving opens the door to spiritual progress.”
