Just some encouraging words from my files.  Enjoy….

If you don’t like your story in life, rewrite it right now. What’s your vision and what will you do to get there? Every decision you make will shape your life.

People find what they’re looking for. If you look in a crowded place for everyone wearing brown, you’ll spot it. If you then look for red, you’ll find it. Similarly, if you look for the negative in your life, you’ll find an abundance of it, but if you opt to look only for the good, you’ll find it too. Isn’t that where you’d rather focus?

What do Disney, Apple, CNN and Microsoft have in common? They all started in a recession. In fact, Tony said, 50% of the Fortune 500 started in a recession. Perhaps now is YOUR time to start a business too or to plant the seeds for crazy career success.

History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.” Bertie Charles Forbes, Financial Journalist

If you are not being treated with love and respect, check your price tag. Perhaps you have marked yourself down. It’s YOU who tells people what you are worth by what you accept. Get off the clearance rack & get behind the glass where the valuables are kept! Learn to value yourself. If you don’t, no one else will!  author unknown

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s. And guess what they might have planned for you? Not much.” — Jim Rohn
