Making a difference...

Blog quote #1151... 
"It's easy to make a buck. It's a lot tougher to make a difference." -Tom Brokaw-    
We believe Mr Brokaw is exaggerating a bit when he says it's an easy task to make money. His theme likely stresses that while millions of people make money every day( some great and some pocket change) very few are those who are making a difference in the world. 
He might even be hinting, that all should think a bit more on how we can have a significant impact on others. Certainly worth pondering...

Use it or lose it...?

Blog quote #1149... 
"Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses it's purity and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind."  -Leonardo DaVinci-    
Use it or lose it. If you rest you rust. Things in motion tend to stay in motion. An active mind, is a lively mind. 
For best results, keep challenging the brain as often as possible. It's an amazing organ that can handle far more than we perceive!

On Visions and Success...

Blog quote #1147... 
"Once you surrender to your vision, success begins to chase you."  - Robin Sharma-    
Isn't that something? Find your passion, create a vision, then let that vision lead you to   your dreams and desires. 
It all starts with an idea. Add some planning, pour in some hard work, and voila! You are on your way!

On hearsay...

Blog quote #1146... 
"Eyesight is more powerful than hearsay."  - Icelandic Proverb-    
It appears this proverb is suggesting for us not to just listen to gossip as gospel. See. Witness.Verify. 
Sounds like a good tip from the Icelanders...

On respect for soldiers...

Blog quote #1145... 
"A man who is good enough to give his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards."  - President Theodore Roosevelt 1903-    
God bless our soldiers and their families! Let's all thank them and give them the respect they deserve and have earned!

Great Lesson from the Boy Scouts...

Blog quote #1144... 
"A Scout smiles and whistles under all circumstances." -Robert Baden-Powell,(1857-1941) Boy Scouts Founder-    
Steady as she goes. The scout is taught to keep a level head at all times, and not get too excited when things are going well, and not get too depressed when headwinds are experienced.  
One of many lessons of value we can all learn from the Boy Scouts. Good stuff!
