"To swear off mistakes is very easy. All you have to do is swear off having ideas. - Leo Burnett
SparkPeople Translation A well-lived life is not for the timid. The world was never meant to be approached with extra caution and fear of making mistakes. Kids know that you have to jump in feet first and be willing to take some lumps on the head if you're going to have any fun at all. When did we stop trying new things? Why did we stop taking risks? In large part, we're afraid of screwing up. We've settled into our comfort zones and don't want to look like a fool, to ourselves or others. What's the price we pay for our pursuit of perfection? No growth, no sense of discovery, few real experiences. The sacrifice isn't worth it. Are there points in your life that you wish you could have back because you didn't pursue an idea or a new interest? Those chances are gone forever -- but you'll have more in the future to take full advantage of. It's been said that most people don't learn much that's new past their 20's. That's an awful long time to stay stagnant. The only mistake you should be afraid to make is not trying. 2405 days ago

"Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions" Harold S. Geneen
Anyone can talk about being a leader…not everyone can actually do it. Think about a project that you are working on at work or at home. Are you talking about being a leader or are you actually being one? In our society we sometimes equate leaders as those who are in charge and giving directions. But, if you really think about it…aren’t the real leaders the ones that show you how to get the job done and do it with you or take the time to lead you in the right direction. Try to think of ways that you can be a better leader this week!
Hi! Hope you're having a great weekend! Here's to a great week to follow!

"Be as you wish to seem" - Socrates
SparkPeople Translation Portray yourself to the world however you like. But it should be consistent with your own values and beliefs. What is truly important to you? What do you really want to get out of your life? The way you live your life should be reflective of that. We all hold high ideal for ourselves, which is a good thing. Are you working to fill these standards, or do you let good opportunities to prove yourself slip by? Think you are a great leader or friend? Being these things isn’t just a title, but is something proven by action as well. You can be anything you want. 2457 days ago

"Think highly of yourself because the world takes you at your own estimate." -Unknown
SparkPeople Translation Take a minute and think about your self-esteem. Do you think highly of yourself? Are you always giving 110%? Do other people look up to your positive attitude? There are times in all of our lives when we could use a self-esteem boost. It is easy to get discouraged in our fast paced society. It is crucial for you to remember that you must always think highly of yourself because most people only see how you treat yourself. So, think about it. Are you giving a message to others that says, “I am successful, I give 110%, I like challenges, etc.” 2461 days ago
I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experiences behind him. - Eleanor Roosevelt
SparkPeople Translation: The unknown and the untried have held more people back than any lack of ability. Most victories are never seen by anyone because they’re never attempted. The courage to face your fears can build momentum that creates magic. Each time you overcome an obstacle, a fear or a step back, you gain confidence. Every small victory helps you feel more sure of yourself and your direction, pushing you further and faster than you ever thought possible. You can do it! What’s holding you back? True, fears are intimidating. So start small. Believe in yourself and take one small swipe at your fear today just to see what happens. If you can’t talk yourself past the “point of no return”, get a friend to help. In the end, half of the doing is in the deciding. If you stumble, don’t be afraid to brush yourself off and jump back in. 2478 days ago
