Success Sleeps in Failures!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.
I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
~Michael Jordan

I have not failed to invest the electric light. I have successfully discovered one thousand things that will not work.

  Thank you for sharing these! Yes, there are so many times in life when it is so tempting not to even start something new for fear of failing. But failure is indeed a learning process!

  Indeed . . . things generally happen for a reason and we may not see it immediately, but if we keep our minds and heart open, the reason will become apparent.

What is difficult is getting up and taking action.

Make it a Great Day!

Sunday, March 18, 2012

emoticon Make it a Great Day!

Somehow, "have a nice day" has evolved into "have a got 'un"

I choose however the parting "Make it a great day" Have a nice day implies that the day is going to happen and you are merely going to partake in whatever the day brings. "Make it a great day" implies, correctly I might add, that you are in charge of the day and you can in fact make it a great day.

Therefore

emoticon Make it a Great Day!

Happy St Patrick's Day

Saturday, March 17, 2012

The top of the morning to ya. And a fine morning it is for the wearing of the green!

May the sun shine always on your face,
May the rains fall gently on your fields,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the roads rise up to meet your feet,
Until we meet again may God hold you in the palm of his hand and
Might you be in Heaven for an hour before the devil knows you’re dead.

Erin Go Braugh!
