Great Insight for Today...

Blog quote #1107...  
"Insight of the day: Put all your excuses aside, and remember this...You are capable." -Zig Ziglar-  
Nothing beats a good confidence booster!
Quick lesson...when Zig speaks, we all should listen. Very seldom does anything come from his lips, that we can't learn from.

How to Feel Good...Part 3

Blog quote #1106...  
"It is impossible not to feel good about yourself, if you make someone else smile." -Enzo D'Alimonte-  
Always a good goal in life is to help others smile more,as it seems the world has gotten much, much too serious. Once we leave the kid stage, grins seem to get replaced with stress, fear, anger, and a bunch of other dare I say...nonsense.
Lighten up everyone, and do your best to get another to smile.
Anyone disagree?

Abundance...what to do with it

Blog quote #1105...  
"When you have more than you need, build a bigger table, not a higher fence." -Unknown-  
In other words...share. Assist others. Help

How to avoid a Bad Day...

Blog quote #1104...  
"It's a really poor day when you can't learn something new." -Mrs. Ryan-  
Here's to continuous learning, character development, self improvement and personal development. If you are living and breathing, you can still be learning. 
Coach John Wooden was known to be reading a book a week, well into his 90's. He said "When you are through learning, you are through." And of all the people we've been introduced to in the world- Wooden was one heck of a good example  Thanks Mrs. Ryan, for the reminder.

On Complacency setting in...

Blog quote #1103...  
"It is wonderful how you get used to things, even the most astonishing." -Edith Nesbit-  
Or is it so wonderful?
That beautiful sunset. A luxuriously soft bed. A wonderful friend. A reliable car. A faithful dog. Given enough exposure, and/ or repetition, complacency can tend to set in, until the whatever it is we see all the time or are 'used to,' gets removed.
Thus, the constant need--every single day--to give thanks, gratitude, and appreciation for all that life gives us. Regardless of large or small, significant or insignificant-never get so complacent that we take for granted the numerous blessings we all have.

What a Noble Goal...

Blog quote #1102...  
"Make it a rule to never lie down at night without being able to say "I have made one human being  at least a little wiser, a little happier, or a little better this day." -Charles Kingsley-  
What a noble goal. If each of us could do this every day, can you imagine how much improved the world would be, and also, how much better you and I would feel? Think it's worth giving a shot?

on Courage...

Blog quote #1101...  
"Courage can't see around corners, but goes around them anyway." -Mignon McLaughlin-  
The spoils go to those who are willing to risk. Others have also said the best way to take on fear- is face it square in the eye. We agree. How about you?

Blog quote #1099...  
"If you would not have affliction visit you twice, listen at once to what it teaches." -James Burgh-  
We took this as life lessons and mistakes will keep coming back at us until we actually learn from them. Pay attention. Improve from experience. Be cognizant with lessons that are being taught to us, via pain, adversity, and/or challenges.
A good reminder from Mr Burgh. Thank you!

Choose wisely-- your words

Blog quote #1097...  
"A slip of the foot you may soon recover, but a slip of the tongue you may never get over." -Ben Franklin-  
Choose your words carefully. They matter. Unlike other things in life, a do-over is tough to get approved. Even if you get one,  some damage has likely already been done...
