Seek Out Great People

Friday, October 15, 2010

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too, can become great.

- Mark Twain, writer and satirist

    With my lifestyle change I have found that some of my old friends aren't that great as friends. This quote hits it right on the head.

    I have this quote, too! It's a great one and very true. The most memorable and "greatest" people in my life have always been the ones who have encouraged me or made me feel good about myself.

    So true these words by Mark Twain. To bad more people don't heed what they hear, maybe the world would spin around just a bit smoother...

Believe in Luck

Don't Worry! Be Happy!

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Be happy. Talk happiness. Happiness calls out responsive gladness in others. There is enough sadness in the world without yours . never doubt the excellence and permanence of what is yet to be. Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness. Your success and happiness lie in you. The great enduring realities are love and service. Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
~ Helen Keller

  


Do Your Best!

Monday, October 11, 2010

True success is not necessarily about being the best at all cost. It's about DOING your best at all times. If you do that long enough, who knows, you might just end up being the best.
~ 'Tope Popoola

When I was in the Boy Scouts a few years back, the Scoutmaster would say"Do your best, nobody can do better"

Add this to the childhood ditty: "Good, better best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is your best!"
