NUGGET OF WISDOM <BR> <BR> "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.

Fri, 9 Dec 2016 17:18:19 EST Time is limited.... <BR> Today’s Great Advice <BR> <BR> “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Steve Jobs <BR> Thu, 8 Dec 2016 17:23:27 EST Lessons..... <BR> Quote of the Day <BR> <BR> <BR> "Every failure will teach you something else about how to succeed." <BR> <BR> Brit Morin <BR> Wed, 7 Dec 2016 21:26:50 EST Feeling tired today....

Thu, 1 Dec 2016 12:18:22 EST The Real Reward,,,,, When you weigh the risks of doing something big–the real reward is hidden. When you are forced to overcome obstacles or even just survive failure, it makes you a better, stronger person. Who you become is the real reward. When you truly accept this, you cannot really fail at trying something new. Take the chance before it is no longer an option.
