Prepare to Win!

Monday, October 05, 2009

The will to win is important but the preparedness to win is essential.

Remember that good luck is what happens when preparedness meets opportunity. Therefore, there is no substitute for preparedness in all of our activities.

Compete Against Yourself!

Sunday, October 04, 2009

The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before.

Having a Lot to Eat Without Eating a Lot

Saturday, October 03, 2009

After the grandsons' football games, we went to Sweet Tomatoes. Being careful in my choices on the veggie buffet allowed me to leave feeling full but when I posted my calories, the dent was not too deep. All in all a good experience.

Just because you are broke doesn't mean you are poor.

Friday, October 02, 2009

I've never been poor, only broke.
Being poor is a frame of mind.
Being broke is only a temporary situation.

    While we were raising our six kids on one income, I tried my best to make them feel that they could have anything they were willing to work for. Interestingly, they vary greatly in how they perceive those years. The older two remember me as fulltime mom who had little ones at home and made homemade meals, clothes, etc. They were in college when I went back to work full-time. The younger kids were 11, 13, 15 and 17. Those kids remember a household with two incomes and more money where they were expected to fix dinner because I also had night classes two days a week. I remember the stay at home years as my rich years when I had time for my family.

    You are so right. I was brought up in a poor household and I never realized it until I was grown.
My mother was widowed at 45 years old with 7 childen. She was the most fantastic person and made do with what we had.
We were poor but, I never felt broke.

    With the economy being the way it is, I believe this quote applies to many households.

You have the time!

Thursday, October 01, 2009

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

    Yes, we do have the time. We just have to make time to do what we need to do. I read this in my local paper this morning.
