Dale Carnegie said "People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing." So true! I've never met a TRULY successful person who didn't enjoy what they were doing! I think that's one of the things that it TAKES to be truly successful. It's part attitude and part desire to be happy. I absolutely LOVE what I get to do. I feel blessed that I get to share my thoughts... and people actually listen... THANK YOU for being one of those people. Have I hit the pinnacle of success? I don't think so... my name is not a household name. I'm not wealthy... but I am happy! I love what I do... and people notice that. That draws people in. Nobody wants to work with someone that's no fun to work with. Have fun and ENJOY life!

Jim Ryun said "Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going." Awesome quote. Motivation is a great thing... but along the way... habit will take over. Sadly, that's true of good habits AND bad habits! If you take the easy way... and you get used to the results you get from that... those habits will take over and you'll never achieve all that you could by putting in the right amount of work by being fully motivated! They say it takes about 28 days for an action to become a habit. Make sure you put in the extra time to make GOOD habits!

Michael Jordan said "You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them." I love that... and Michael Jordan know a little something about achieving great things. He was a champion over and over in sports and in life. He shared his secret too.... he EXPECTED great things... then he went out and chased after them! You need to remember both sides of that.... don't expect great things, but never actually go out and do anything about it! But also don't go out and wander aimlessly... be sure to set a great plan... and expect great things!

Diane Ackerman said "I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well." I love that! We do have the same number of hours in each day as every other person on the planet.... but some people seem to get so much more out of their hours.... how is that? They're not just going through the motions... they're living their best life! You should aim for that too! There may be times you fall short, but if you aim for the best you can possibly be... and do your best to enjoy each and every day. You'll enjoy living your best life too!

George Bernard Shaw said "Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time." So true! We ALL make mistakes.... some of us LEARN from them... others just keep making the same mistake over and over! Sometimes the mistake looks a little different the next time... so you think you can make it this time, but then you fail again! Be careful... sometimes persistence and being stubborn enough to keep trying can actually backfire. If you make a mistake... learn from it.... don't keep doing it over and over. Don't be the kind of person who needs to touch the flame to see if it's still hot! IT IS!
