Many of us work hard, or work for years, or both, without feeling any love for the work we do. We trade the time of our lives for a paycheck – and certainly, all of us need our paychecks – but too often we are living like a paycheck is worth living for. (continue reading…)

If you never had “life” spoken into you – by that, I mean if you were given no words of encouragement and hope to start you on your way and all you ever heard were painful remarks about your body, your looks, your mind – you need to forgive those stupid people who didn’t realize they were talking to greatness in the making. You were created with a divine plan already laid out for your life. (continue reading…)
“The mere possession of a vision is not the same as living it, nor can we encourage others with it if we do not, ourselves, understand and follow its truths….To be blessed with visions is not enough….we must live them!” – HIGH EAGLE
“Rule #1 Take one more step. Rule #2 When you can’t take one more step, refer to Rule #1” – H. Jackson Brown (author of Life’s Little Instruction Book).
That’s what it takes to achieve a dream: the will to take one more step, even when you’re convinced you can’t. People who live their dreams refuse to give up, knowing that if they keep chipping away, making whatever small progress they can every day, they increase the chance that something will happen in their favor.

The journey to a goal isn’t always a smooth path – especially when unexpected obstacles pop up along the way.
Obstacles are usually unexpected but they always give us the opportunity to find out how hard we’re willing to fight for our goals.
My absolute favorite part about the journey to achieving a goal is the unexpected obstacles that pop up along the way. The unexpected obstacles are opportunities in disguise because we get to find out what kind of a fight we’re willing to put up in order to achieve our goals. (continue reading…)
Many people give up far too easily when things don’t go their way or they face some kind of adversity. Instead of persevering, they get all bent out of shape. Before long they are down and discouraged. That’s understandable. Especially when we’ve struggled with a problem or a weakness for a long time, it’s not unusual to come to a place where we acquiesce.
But if you want to live your best life, you have to be determined to find strength through adversity. Our attitude should be: I may have been knocked down a few times in life, but I am not going to stay down; I am determined to live in victory. I’m determined I’m going to have a good marriage. I’m determined I’m going to work my way out of these problems.
We all face challenges in life. We all have things that come against us. We may get knocked down on the inside, but the key to living in victory is to learn how to get up on the inside.
Sometimes our circumstances may force us to sit down for a while, but we must not stay down. Even when we are sitting down on the outside, we must see ourselves as standing on the inside.
Don’t give up! Keep standing; keep praying; keep believing; keep hoping in faith. Payday is coming!
Maybe you work around people who are always putting you down, mistreating you, trying to make you feel badly about yourself. Let that trash go in one ear and out the other. They may try to knock you down on the outside, but they can’t knock you down on the inside. Don’t let those people steal your joy. Don’t let that problem or adversity cause you to become discouraged or depressed. Just keep standing up on the inside.
As Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of wheel-chair bound President Franklin D. Roosevelt, often said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
No matter what you are going through or how difficult it may seem, you can stay standing on the inside. It will take courage; it will definitely take determination, but you can do it if you decide to do so. You must act on your will, not simply your emotions.

Your Partner In Success,
I read a story in an email my sister sent to me a few days ago and thought I’d share it with you. Be sure to read it to the end to get the interesting story about integrity.
An aging king woke up one day to the realization that should he drop dead, there would be no male in the royal family to take his place.
He was the last male in the royal family in a culture where only a male could succeed to the throne – and he was aging.
Your Partner In Success,
I came across this video on Youtube. It encouraged me and I’m sure it will do the same for you. You’ve gotta encourage yourself because if you don’t do it, no one else will do it for you.
Remember how David encouraged himself in the Bible? If you’re not familiar with the story, read the Bible for yourself :-)

Here are the 10 ways to break the worry habit:
1. Say to yourself, “Worry is just a very bad mental habit. And I can change any habit with God’s help.”
2. You become a worrier by practicing worry. You can become free of worry by practicing the opposite and stronger habit of faith. With all the strength and perseverance you can command, start practicing faith. (continue reading…)
