W.B. Yeats said “The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” How true! Think of the things that people developed or discovered that were there all along. We just didn't know it... until someone discovered it. THEN, it becomes commonplace. Think about FLYING. As I was getting ready to do today's program, a giant airplane flew over... I thought about how we barely even notice them. Just over a hundred years ago... that was impossible. If that same airplane flew over exactly 100 years ago.... everyone would have stopped what they were doing to watch this amazing feat of engineering and marvel of science. Now complain about the noise!

John C. Maxwell said “Learn to say ‘no’ to the good so you can say ‘yes’ to the best.” This is something I need to work on. I love to say YES. I have had to say no to a few things the last few years. I can't be in two or three places at once. It actually hurts my heart to say no... but I'm learning that no is NOT a bad thing. It just means I can't do it NOW. If you say no to the right things... the right way. It will come back to help you in the future. Or at least it WON'T come back to hurt you anyway! It also leaves room for you to say yes to the right things too!

Charles Bukowski said “Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?” I think this quote can be magnified now that we're all under the watchful eye of social media. I have a friend who is a bit bizarre, but I love the guy. He marches to the beat of his own drum. He posts weird quirky things that make me smile. He doesn't do this for followers... it probably pushes away some. He does it because that is who he is! I think he's awesome... just the way he is. No matter what the world thinks! Some would fee like they need to change themselves to “fit in”.... he doesn't do that. It makes me smile and makes me like him more!

Denis Waitley said “A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future.” That's pretty cool. I've had the amazing opportunity to visit with hundreds (maybe even thousands) of business owners. When I ask them why they started their company, the number of times I hear the word DREAM is a pretty high number. Many said they “always dreamed” of owning their own bakery... or whatever business they now own. Then they followed their dreams and DID it! Follow YOUR dreams! It may not always be EASY! Sometimes these dreams become a nightmare, so be careful, but when it's right... follow those dreams!

Today's quote has been submitted by Danielle

There's an anonymous quote that says “If you want help, help others. If you want love, give it. If you want respect, show it. Whatever you want more of, start giving more of.” I love this quote. It reminds me of a time we moved to a new town. We went to our new church and noticed that everyone kind of stayed in their own little groups. The first few weeks we just went home after church. Then I hatched a plan. We sat at a big table and welcomed people who also looked like they were lost. We met some great people and instead of looking for a group to join... we became a group that welcomed people in.
