10 Most Important Things

Borrowed from the Fish Wrapper - Author Unknown

The special feeling that makes you feel all warm and wonderful

Treating others as well as you would like to be treated

To be grateful for all the good things life has to offer

The full enjoyment of each moment, a smiling face

The ability to let things be without anger

The joy of giving without thought of receiving

The quality of always telling the truth

The purity of doing whats right, no matter what

The essence of feeling another's pain, while easing their hurt

The reward for living the 10 most important things

Begin With the End in Mind.

Too many times when I begin a new project or when I'm trying to accomplish something I usually think about - what do I have to do first.

Well I have to tell you that this is the first mistake that I or you could make when trying to accomplish anything. Whether it be to win the big race, to get a date or to succeed in life.

Let me ask you this.

Which end of this donkey is really the end? Is it the rear end, or the front end.

You'll have to decide for yourself but the moral is - to begin with the end in mind.

If you want to be a national champion motocross racer then you need to start by seeing yourself standing on the podium with the crowd going wild. The press is there, you're mom is crying and your dad is telling everyone, that's my boy or girl.

If you begin visualizing this over and over in your mind, your body and your brain will take over and take the actions needed to make it happen.

It apply's to any area of life:

Picture getting the new job
Driving the new car
Walks on the beach with your sweet heart...

No matter what the goal - see it first, then the results will come.

Where Did You Go To School

I know - most people end up going to university or college. I myself, it seems went to adversity.


difficulties; misfortune.
"resilience in the face of adversity"

synonyms:           misfortune, ill luck, bad luck, trouble, difficulty, hardship, distress, disaster, suffering, affliction, sorrow, misery, tribulation, woe, pain, trauma; More...

Can anybody relate?

Today was just one of those days where much adversity came my way. Actually it seems most of the week was that way. 

Today's events weren't a complete surprise but it wouldn't have been the way I would have planned it.

Anyhow there's only one thing to do. It's time to graduate from adversity and move on to victory. Sometimes

I wonder if we don't bring our own luck? 

Here's to victory for all and better roads ahead. Truth is its all in what you make it.

Talk About Being Challenged

Hey All,

It's great to be back. I had to make some changes to my email account a while back because of one of my businesses and I haven't been able to find my way back until today.

Anyhow, I won't be long tonight because now I have to log back out and see if I can find my new info that made me lose my original info and then come back again - get it?

Me either - but either way you'll know if you see me around I have it figured out and if you don't well, you know.

Have a great night and I hope to see you soon.
