What you believe to be true about yourself (whether it actually is true or not) determines how you act and react to life, what kind of treatment you will accept from others (good, bad or indifferent), and also how you treat others. Comments made to us from family, teachers, other students or people at work can often affect us for the rest of our lives. Does someone’s lame opinion actually have the right to do that?  NO one’s opinion or negative comment has the right to determine our worth or what the outcome of our dreams and goals will be.

YOU are the CEO of your own life.  Is it time you give yourself a raise?  Or redesign the current picture of your life?  Ever see the phenomenal pictures that can be created from little pieces of paper or stones?  You can do the same with your life!  Take all of those disjointed pieces that have affected you and your career and create an awesome life mosaic out of them!  You can!  Start cutting and pasting today!!!
