Define Yourself!

Thursday, November 01, 2012

Who you are right now, or at any one moment of your lifetime, does not define who you are as a person. You—and only you--can change your life today.

Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.
~Nido Qubein

Be yourself! No one else can do it for you!
~From the Torah

    Change can and will happen if you strive to do so.

    Definitely! Our past may influence who we are today, but doesn't dictate who we are.

    It is so powerful to know we are in charge of making ourselves happy! And we are responsible if we're NOT happy! Great quotes.

Can, Will, Do

Monday, October 29, 2012

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

"Accentuate the positive. Eliminate the negative. Don't mess with Mr. In Between"

"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you are usually right!" Henry Ford

It Really Doesn't Matter!

Sunday, October 28, 2012

Yesterday's football games was atrocious! And that is a compliment to the team's performance. We did well except for offense, defense, and special teams. That means the managers managed to get the water out on to the field during time outs. The opposition punted twice. We tried to punt seven times. One was blocked! A chip-shot field goal was missed. Three out of four kick-offs were returned to mid field. We did not convert a single third down and our best offensive play was a personal foul penalty on the opposition. 41-17 and the game was not a close as the score.

Fortunately, since I am neither the coach nor a player, the sun WILL come up tomorrow (actually, it was this morning and the sun did indeed come up and is now shining brightly) and to quote a great Atlantan "Tomorrow is another day!"

    That's the nice thing when something doesn't go as planned. There's always tomorrow!

Have a great week.
