Strength of Sound Structure

“The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.” ~Zig Ziglar

What do we base our lives on? Do we do things the way we see others do them? Or do we do what feels right in our hearts? I think most of us take the concepts from our past and surroundings that feel right to us and continue them. We let go of the things that aren’t conducive to our intentions, and create strategies that support us.

*Honesty      A lie has speed, but truth has endurance. ~Edgar J. Mohn

*Character  Wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is doing it. ~David Star Jordan

*Integrity    I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day. ~Abraham Lincoln

*Faith             Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. ~Martin Luther King Jr.

*Love             To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is the ultimate happiness. ~Robert Brault

*Loyalty      Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach. ~Tom Robbins

Build your home with these things, and though the ground may be shaky at times, the foundation still stands in years to come. Memories stand the test of time, and legacies live forever.

    Right on!

    Thank you for sharing….X

  2. Excellent post and quotes. I put the “love” quote on my FB wall:

    To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is the ultimate happiness. ~Robert Brault

    I know that my “foundation” is on firmer footing than it used to be ~ honesty and integrity keep me focused on being who I want to be . . . even if no one else is looking.

    When we know WHO we are . . . we know HOW to live. Peace!

  3. This one is my favorite! *Love To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is the ultimate happiness. ~Robert Brault

    That is SO awesome!

  4. I really love how you “built” this post … you created a very strong and supported structure of life wisdom. My foundation has a few holes in it these days and that makes me a little wobbly, but I guess life is all about the process of mending and building it stronger … right?

    Like most of your commenters, the love quote was also my favorite … guess a lot of hopeless/hopeful romantics read your blog ;0)
